Sorry about the break from these tidbit life-lesson posts; I’ve been tied up with some other projects that needed my attention. Which brings me to today’s topic – Time Management.
Not everyone can figure out how to get their “to do” list done in a timely manner, nor can some even dream of making the list in the first place. You know how those free spirits are…you might even be one. If that’s the case, keep reading. Technically, there is no right or wrong way of managing your time. The possibilities are as endless as there are stars in the sky…or people on the planet. Yes, you can do it your way! The question is: Is it working for you?
Do you constantly ask “where did the day go?” or “why does it seem like I didn’t accomplish anything?” If so, maybe it’s time to look at your methodology. I am fortunately right smack in the middle between being structured and unstructured so I’ve been graced with this uncanny ability to understand both sides of the fence.
It really just means that I get mad at myself for twice as much as one who rests on one end or the other. No, it’s cool. I love relating to both types of people. And I know there are pros and cons to being both. The key is finding your balance and what works for you. Being mindful of how you feel throughout a busy day and a calm one can give you clues to that which needs some tweaking. And if you’ve never done it, try keeping track of all your activities for one week and see just how busy you are. Yes, that means even coffee breaks, surfing the web, TV time, and all other leisurely moments need to be included. No cheating on this exercise.
I’ll continue this tomorrow as I’ve surpassed my 300 words for the day. Be well-be beautiful.

the LIST. I could write a book on my intentions being the pathway to my frustrations. LOL I love lists. People have seen me write lists before. Sometimes they work and other times they don’t. Then sometimes I say, forget the list because I am not going to finish it anyway. And that is really not a helpful attitude either. At least something on the list gets accomplished. Maybe the problem is I put too many things on the list for the day… And I love the feeling when something from the list is done. But then I get overwhelmed that so many things are left UNDONE. 🙁 I hate being discouraged with myself but I know I can do better. I need to adjust my attitude. And I know I need to improve the little things that make the big things. I want a clean space to work in. More than just everything at my fingertips in a disaray. Everything should have a space. YET I feel it does not. and where the heck do I put some of it? I need a system. LOL Yet when i put a system into practice, it goes by the way side in a week or too because I am so sporadic. erratic. spontaneous. grrrr. I am still reading. I love the insight. Thank you!
Just keep swimming…
Sunday night I make my list of things to do for the week. And I make sure those things can be done during one day lol. If I don’t get some done i plan it for the next week. I always say don’t sweat the small stuff. Just remember it WILL be there just keep swimming 🙂
I try not to sweat at all…
