Rob’s Recipe for “Me” Time:

1. Write down 10 things that you love to do

2. At the top of this chart mark down from left to right

  • is this something you can do by yourself or with someone else?
  • Is there a cost involved or can you do this for free?
  • Is it risk-free or is there an element of risk involved?

3. Is there anything that you can do on your own, at no cost, with no risk? Schedule this right away in your calendar. Is there anything you can do with two people, costs you nothing, no risk? Schedule it next. What about something which costs minimal which you can do by yourself or with other people? Schedule this next. Etc. Etc.
