While it was annoying I did manage to get a few things done.
It gave me the time to sit down and think about how I was going to start managing my time better. Since there seem to be so many others in the same predicament as me, this is what I came up with.
Write Things Down
I need to use one tool to track all the tasks I need to do. While I still plan on using the reminderfox tool, I will also write things down on paper.
Every evening I plan to sit down and write my to-do list for the next 24 hours. I’m going to break this list down into two parts. What needs to get done and what I would l like to do.
Once I have my lists written, the next step is to go through them and prioritize them. Writing #1 beside the most important task and continuing through the entire list. Then I will tackle them according to importance. Not everything might get done but the most important ones will.
By working smarter instead of harder, I will get more done in less time.
I don’t know about you, but I tend to put off the big jobs which can result in more pain than it’s worth. The best way to tackle the big jobs is to break them down into bite-sized pieces that are more manageable. I’m working on this!
I may have lost Internet access and missed chatting with all my buddies but I gained the insight I needed to grab control of this crazy blogging life I’ve thrown myself into. I do love it so!
This should help in maintaining some balance in other areas of my life.
While losing the Internet was a royal pain, I did reap some benefit from it. Have a few more things to do but as soon as they’re done I will be visiting my blogging buddies to see what I’ve missed.
Now there is nothing bugging me today!
Quote for today
Forget past mistakes.
Forget everything except what you’re going to do now and do it.
