At a party recently, Peter, who was seated at our table, talked about his dentistry practice. This is certainly not the best topic of discussion when having a meal. He told everyone that it is at such gatherings that he finds most of his clients.

At a party recently, Peter, who was seated at our table, talked about his dentistry practice. This is certainly not the best topic of discussion when having a meal. He told everyone that it is at such gatherings that he finds most of his clients.

He passed around his contact card and dominated the conversation. There are many people like him, who work even during their leisure time.
However, Peter Kimbowa, a career consultant says time is our biggest resource, but it is the most abused.

Set boundaries for yourself
Kimbowa says many people set unrealistic goals, having up to 30 activities to do in a day. He says the 24 hours should be divided into three slots. The first eight hours are for sleep, the second are for work and the third are for other important aspects like relaxing, laughing, exercising, having time with the family and evaluating your priorities.
Exercise is especially important in helping you to relax and relieve the stress of the day. Weekends should be to dedicated to the family.

Be flexible
The ability to adjust or shift into the separate roles of career builder, father or mother, friend, husband or wife, is crucial to achieving balance of your time because you will cater for all the activities you want to do.

Learn to say no
For many young people, saying no is probably the most difficult thing to do. Kimbowa says that you must learn to say no and not feel guilty about it if you want to have a personal life.

Get hobbies outside your profession
Hobbies are great because they are not only enjoyable but can also be educational.
You can take up reading, walking, hiking, travel, music, movies, riding, story telling, and swimming. This way, you can keep up with the rest of the world.
