Making The Most Of The time We Have

thsowTo me, time management is a big deal. It’s how I plan my days. By keeping track of how we use our time, we’re more apt to finish old projects and start new ones. However, it takes a huge amount of self-discipline to use our time constructively.

I’m easily bored and if I’m not writing something that gets my creative juices flowing, I tend to become complacent and easily distracted by other things.

At some point I’m knowing what I must do to get the job done, but it’s so much more exciting to watch a testy debate between the women of The View or zero in on a Wendy “how you doin?” Williams segment instead of getting work done…yep, a waste of valuable time.

It’s so easy for us to put off what we could accomplish today for what we plan to do tomorrow. In REALITY we’re wasting more than a day’s worth of being productive contributors to society. I know for me, it’s the dang boob tube! and because I’ve identified my one true work from home vice, I’ve worked out a plan to manage my work time more effectively… and you can to.

Change your mindset to manage your time wisely and you can become happily productive. And when the day’s work is completed…

Remember to “treat yourself special.”

  1. Clara, sometimes I have to take my laptop and remove myself from home so I don’t have the distractions of laundry, dirty dishes, etc., to keep me from other work that needs doing. I can easily feel scattered, but find way to get into rhythms. Summer is always a bit more discordant than the school year but even in that, I have found ways…for example, taking the kids to the pool and using the time while they’re exerting energy to read or jot down some notes for work later. I also don’t have the TV issue anymore. I quit watching for the most part a couple years ago and really don’t miss it. It’s been very freeing.

  2. Thanks Roxane,
    You’ve given me food for thought here. I’m going to have to nix the TV thing in some areas, but, I don’t know about all:) Baby steps right?

    Peace,
    Clara.
