- Transcript: [spoiler]Hello, this is Timo from ProductiveSuperdad.com, and today I wanted to
share a couple of great insights that I learned by email Ita Rabinowitz.
Now, first of all, she told me that she has a big family, and for some
practical reasons, it wasn’t reasonable for her to become an early riser.Now, the thing that I’m telling you is that whenever you are learning more
about time management – reading books, blogs, listening to podcasts,
watching some videos – whatever is being taught, always put those ideas
into a test and then see if they work in your personal situation or not,
because sometimes certain types of ideas might work for certain people, but
then it doesn’t necessarily work for you or some other people. So that’s
why it’s important to take this critical look at things and put those ideas
into test and then decide if the tip or lesson is actually worth
implementing in your personal situation.So that was a great insight, number one. Insight number two was that she
was telling me that she’s actually syncing her napping times with her
baby’s napping times. Basically, what it means is this. Anyone who has had
a baby in the house knows that taking caring of your baby is really hard
work, and you are pretty much tied to your baby. You have to nurture him or
her and take care of him or her all the time and be available for your
So, of course, you might become very tired, especially if your family is
out of the house. Let’s say that you have other kids. They are at school.
You have a spouse who is at work. When they are coming back to home in the
evening, of course, you want to be full of energy. You want to play with
your kids. You want to socialize with your spouse. And if you’re very
tired, things do not work out very well.
So syncing your napping times with your baby’s napping times is a great way
to make sure that you are recharging your batteries and you have energy for
the rest of the day. When the rest of the family comes back home, you have
more energy for them, and your day is more productive that way.
So thank you, Ita, for this great insight. Anyone who is watching this
video, I truly hope that you found these insights and tips valuable. And
please share this video on Twitter and on YouTube. I will talk to you soon.
