I usually start my blog by saying how much I miss writing and conclude with the promise of writing more. However, I usually end up breaking that promise. Since I became a mom to Leon and assigned in Paranque area (and goes home to QC), I rarely find time to blog. Finding time has been a struggle to me, until I finished a powerful training called the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
I wouldn't go to details but I was inspired that if you have the willingness to change yourself, you can actually value your time, your relationships and even your priorities. Currently, I feel refreshed and inspired that if I change my paradigm on things, I can actually change how I manage my time and improve my relationships to other people.

Among the 7 habits, the 3rd habit, Putting First Things First is probably the most fitting in my current situation. For the past 2 years, I have been complaining of not having enough time to do meaningful things for my family and myself. I usually blame the nature and the proximity of my work for eating much of my time. This habit opened my eyes that I actually can do much more, only if I plan my day and my week and respect it.
So today, I'm starting my personal promise to do my weekly calendar (as suggested in Habit 3) and respect the schedule I put on it. I realize that if I wake an extra hour early, find other things to do in traffic, I can actually so something productive out of my situation. I am also writing it here in my blog to publicly announce that I am changing how I value my time and be more productive every hour. (Like how I write this on my phone while on heavy traffic).
Anyways, I really do hope I can be an effective person by being able to excel at work while being a good mom to Leon, a caring wife to Paolo, a thoughtful daughter and daughter-in-law, a gym buff and a part time blogger. May this blog be a witness to that transformation. Oh, I'm sorry if I choose to post a month old photo of me and my family to actually inspire me to improve myself.
Til my future posts! See you soon, guys!
Much Love, TBD
