As you can see, I'm late with my post.
Time management. Mine stinks as of late. Sure does. Why?
Ah, that's the question. You see, no matter how much balancing I do, the more I feel like I'm dropping all my beans. I get one task accomplished and fifteen more show up. I'm a mom, a wife, and about twenty-seven other things at once. Some days, I'm not sure if I'm coming or going (ok, really I know about the coming part, but that's another bowl of fruit). I want to say I felt guilty about taking time to read, but that would be unthinkable. I make sure to take time to read every day. If I don't read, I honestly think I'd shrivel away. It's almost as good as sex (but that's off limits topic-wise right now.).
I'm one of those people who once they start something, they can't just walk away. I see it through...til five a.m. if I have to. It's not always pretty, but it's my style. Been that way since high school, eons ago.
So I'm looking for help. I know you are all busy, too and this isn't a new question, but anyone have any thoughts on better managing time? I'd be thrilled to hear about it. Might even work a couple ideas into my daily routine so I can be more productive (which if you tell me crit partner/writing partner, she'd flip. She swears I remind her of a bouncy terrier dog...bounce....bounce....bounce...She'd be right.)
Thoughts? Ideas? I'm open.
