You can’t pour from an empty cup

Self-care is important as a leader. You cannot pour from an empty cup. It’s important to make time for yourself to rest, time to exercise, and time to develop your skills.

So often I hear the excuse: “I don’t have enough time.” And that results in futile thinking. You can make time by reprioritising your day. By prioritising time to invest in yourself, you can have a lot more energy for everything else that you need to do.

Take a moment and look at your day and week.

  • Where are those areas that you are spending time doing things that are not important or adding value?
  • How much time do you spend on Netflix, or on Social Media? What if you did something else during that time?
  • How much exercise do you get in the week? Do you need to get more?
  • Create 1 new habit and stick to it for 30 days.
  • Make a note after the first week of how it felt.
