"Where do you find the time to do your memory keeping?"
This is the question I am most frequently asked, at both workshops and online.
The truth is that we are all busy.
It doesn’t matter whether you are a university student or a worker, married with no children or a parent with many children, a parent who stays at home full-time or a parent who goes out to work full-time, time is always scarce no matter what stage of life we’re in.
This means that if you truly believe that memory keeping is important, you need to stop delaying until life gets less busy.
Life will always be busy.
Make time today.
Prioritise your memory keeping projects over other projects. (Or at the very least, give them equal weight.)
Rethink your habits. Organise your photos instead of browsing Facebook. Sit down and journal instead of watching television.
Review your calendar, and schedule a block of time every week for memory keeping. Make every effort to protect and preserve that block of time.
Establish routines and processes so that when you do sit down, you can maximise your time by knowing exactly what you're doing.
Seize every moment.
Make time, in order to make it happen.
