After yesterday of getting nothing done but work and school, I am ready to start back today on scheduling my life a little better. I'm still making my lists. But I am really trying to watch the clock and see how much time I spend on each project I list for myself. Since I am busy from the time I get up until the time I go to bed, I feel that somehow I am not making the best use of my time or I am just being too unrealistic on what I am able to do each day. (Or maybe a little of both!) By jotting down notes as to the time I spend doing things, I am hoping to shed some light on my processes each day.
I have made an observation already. Many times, I have the tv on mostly as background noise. I have been shutting the tv off more. I found that I'm not stopping to see what's going on, therefore saving some wasted time this way. It sounds trivial, but the extra minutes can be used to finish up what I want to get done. Then, at the end of the day, I may have more time to actually sit down, watch tv, and relax a little before going to bed - something I have really not allowed myself to do much of lately. I do try to watch the news to catch the weather and find myself dozing on the couch and missing the weather. The bed is so much more comfortable and I sleep so much better. One thing noted and being worked on!
