I, like most people am busy and probably like most people, my time management sucks. I have to get better at it, others wise my ambitious year, will be again a year of should have, could have and would have beens…. Sigh, if only I had the time.
I am thinking of strategies to reclaim some lost time. ie, get off the computer, or when I am on it, use it as a tool and not as strictly an entertainment device.
Multitask better…. if I am waiting for something to finish- laundry, dinner, chores, rather than turning to the computer, do something creative.Pick up my sketchbook, embroidery, sewing project or photography.
My second biggest time waster and probably the number one reason I don’t finish many projects is: I don’t know where stuff is. When it comes to creative projects and I want a certain tool, supply or material, I can not find it, I spend 5-10, 30 minutes or more looking for IT… and then my time, the time I have allotted myself for the project is nearly over. Give everything a home and put everything in it’s home [when done with it put it away].
One list down.
I’m pretty impressed, I used my drippy painting practice that I would have thrown out, while giving my kids their after school snack and thinking about ways I could save time (3 things is about all I can manage when it comes to multitasking).
