Time Management

Tuesday, December 10, 2013

I think I'm finally getting better at managing my time. I actually started doing what I've been threatening to do for awhile. I got my kitchen timer out. I set it for 15-30 minutes and see how much I can get accomplished. I then decide whether to continue working on that project or to start on another. Sometimes I stop the project until later in the day and then go back to it. Sometimes I wait until the next day to work on it.

I feel like do this keeps my mind a little fresher. I think I'm getting a little more done. I haven't kept track of times yet. I really should start doing that tomorrow. It will give me a clearer idea of whether or not it really is working.

    I use the 15 minute timer and love it! There are some things I don't like to do and knowing I can time it, helps me. emoticon

    Have certainly heard about this, but never really tried it myself, let me know if it works.... You think about it that is what Leslie Sansone does with her workouts too, they are about 30 min...which reminds me, I should go up and do one now... I gotta make this a regular event in my day again, now that the white stuff is down and the temp with windchill is about -16C, so no outside walking, poor little Buddy's toes would freeze off...

    That's too bad Sherry didn't feel she got any info at the doc.... What tests is she having done? I remember when dh was going for her appts with Mya, she never felt she had any comments, just her weight and blood pressure and that measurement done each time. At one point, she got there and he was away making a delivery, so after an hour or so, she left and never saw him again till delivery time.

    As for Birthday Blast ice cream, being kind of an ice cream officianado, I don't think we have it in NS, maybe she's luckier in Halifax, but I got Fiddlers Chocolate Reel yesterday, only did 2 bowlfuls.... realized I hadn't even had supper. With my appt, I got lunch about 4pm , so when I realized it, I had supper (leftover cornish game hen and salad) at 10:30 after I walked and kicked with Leslie....

    how long is Sherry home?

    Using your kitchen timer is an excellent plan! I did the exact same thing several years ago - I'd set my timer for 20 minutes faithfully three or four times a week and gave my undivided attention to a project. If after the 20 minutes I felt like doing more, I would. It really helped me learn how to focus - I don't multitask very well & get very little accomplished when I feel scattered & pulled in too many directions at once. I use the timer for exercise sessions, as well.

    Good Luck to you! emoticon
