I have a strong philosophy that you can manage your time to STAY productive. You don’t manage your time without taking in consideration with productivity and you can’t be productive without managing your time. Today, I break down how exactly I do it, and it really starts with planning big then breaking it down into bite-sized pieces which helps you stay motivated.

I juggle my full time job as an Accenture technology consultant, a content creator with a YouTube channel, podcast, Instagram, and Clubhouse, and entrepreneur with Technology Consulting Community PLUS being an NYC cat mommy of three. How do I do it all? This is how!

Consulting Work Life Balance

On Monday, we spoke about time management in a room on Clubhouse hosted by be.boldest with other women in consulting such as Way Into Consulting, Kristina Choi, and management.consultant.

What I found very important to keep in mind of with time management is not to just manage your time around work and career but also to pencil in time for your own mental health. Work life balance in consulting could be exceptionally hard to juggle a side hustle and time for yourself to destress and relax, but it’s not always as bad as everyone says it is. It’s more like a rollercoaster on which firm, client, and role. Even down to the project stage.

You should still prepare for those 80 hour (let’s pray it never gets that high) work weeks if you’re interested in consulting, but it should be temporary. Otherwise, you need to set your boundaries and value your mental health and relationships!
