I’ll talk about prioritising passions until the cows come home, but the last thing I want is to add more stress to your life. Passions aren’t supposed to be yet another item to fit into your schedule.
Fortunately, there’s an elegant way of making space for your passions whilst at the same time easing the overall pressure on your time. It’s very clean and logical, just like maths!
Your mission is to learn the one-in-one-out method.

Task 1: Learn the method
The basic principle is that for everything you add to your schedule, you take something else out. Sounds easy, right?
The rub is that most of us are too busy as it is. Adding in passion just by eliminating an equal number of chores doesn’t cut it. Passions don’t fit in neat slots; they require peace of mind as well as simply blocks of time.
That’s why it’s important exactly what you add into your schedule. You’ll learn this in Task 2.
Task 2: What to add to create enough time
Get pen and paper and write down the following:
- Anything passion related you’d like to create time for (i.e. practice the guitar, read up/study your chosen subject).
- Find an equal number of chores or other items in your schedule that you can eliminate. Be ruthless!
- Now, find an equal number of self care acts (anything from doing nothing to taking a walk in nature).
- Again, find the same number of chores or other items you can remove from your schedule.
This may sound crazy, but I promise you, it’s always doable. The truth is, you only have 24 hours a day. If you’re not letting go of some things, you won’t make room for others and create more space and peace of mind.
