IDEA EXTRACTED FROM:
When thinking about our workday, we should give every minute a job. This technique is called time blocking.
Most people generally approach their workday with a list of tasks where they fill the time between scheduled meetings and calls reacting to emails. When the mood strikes, they try to make progress on tasks on their list. By contrast, the time blocking method breaks your day into blocks of time and assign specific work to these blocks.
Those who use this strategy get so much more done because their average intensity of focus is very high.
You do not want to extend this block discipline to your time outside of work, as this intensity will lead to burn out. A life of focus also needs time to reflect, and a commitment to direct your free time toward rewarding activities.

When we get busy, we often overlook the subtle shifts in ourselves. Or we become so focused on the work that we don't realise when we move away from what we truly value.
Being the best leaders we can be require us to identify our values and then live and lead according to them. When you understand what is important to you, what energizes you, what you believe in, and where you want to be, you can make decisions confidently.
Self-acceptance is not about accepting your failures and carrying on exactly as before. It is about taking responsibility for your actions, accepting what is and isn't possible to change, then developing a plan to improve things.
Self-acceptance is also about accepting your strengths. When you can identify your strengths, you can leverage that to get better results.
