The Time of Our Lives: How Will We Make the Most of It?

In March we talked about our stories and as it turns out, likely to no one’s surprise, we have many stories around and about time in our lives. Among others, there are stories about being too busy, about working long hours for the sake of others, and about conflicts between the priorities in our lives. In addition to what we’ve already discovered with these stories, they are also pointing us towards something else to explore. Now may be just the right time to take a closer look at our relationship with time and how we choose to live our lives.

When the subject of time, particularly a lack of time, comes up in the context of our lives, it’s common to think of or talk about time management and the need for better time management skills. Over the course of our lives, most of us have developed a strong sense of urgency. We’ve been trained to hurry to meet the accelerating requirements of our lives and are accustomed to measuring our success by how much we get done. We want to know how to better manage our time so we can get even more done. But, trying to build better time management skills may be ineffective or completely off the mark if our engrained beliefs about time are no longer compatible with our individual preferences or the more complex circumstances we face as creative workers in highly dynamic environments. Rather than figuring out how to get more and more done, we may want to assess how we do things and expand our capacity to take advantage of diverse ways of approaching life, time and work.

Please join us on April 24th for the March Women’s Leadership Roundtable and contribute to an engaging discussion of how we relate to and experience time in our lives, what core beliefs we currently hold and what may need to shift for us to make the most of the time of our lives.

Please note: This is a “brown bag” event, and it is recommended that participants bring their lunch to eat during the roundtable. We’ll also have beverages and snacks to share. The Women’s Leadership Roundtable is a facilitated open forum for women, as leaders of themselves and others, to discuss relevant issues, build community and network, collaborate with, learn from, and support one another. It provides an opportunity for women to share their experiences, engage in thought-provoking discussion, and to generate ideas and growth together. The roundtable is an ongoing event, open to the public, held on the 3rd Friday of the month from January through October in a Denver area location. You are encouraged to attend as frequently as possible and bring your ideas, issues, and interests to the discussion. There is a $10 charge for the roundtable, paid in advance when registering online, and a $12 charge when paid at the door. A discounted rate is available for those wishing to register for an entire year of roundtables. For additional information contact Karen McGee at 303 503-9681.
