This is great information! Thanks Spark!! By the way, Flylady has been a tremendous help for me in learning how to focus my day on the important tasks, including time for myself. She taught me that the hard things you think take forever to do actually can be done very quickly and painlessly. Her method of simple routines has me going to the laundry room to do clothes and being shocked to find they are already done, BY ME!! Routines become an ingrained part of your day and give happiness and freedom.
I adore this article...it seems everyone needs more time and this is such a good article on how to organize and fit thing in. I especially like the idea of doing the yucky stuff first-great idea. Get the yucky stuff over with and then you are free to do the fun stuff!!!
Wonderful article with great suggestions to keep things organized n running smoothly.

I printed this out to use for a quick inventory this evening. I've read time management articles for years but rarely applied the suggestions. Instead I've tried multi-tasking until my life became chaos. Those days are behind me now: I don't want my tombstone to read: "Only place she ever arrived early!"
Great article. It reminds me of "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People" which I've used. Starting a job for 15 minutes when the whole job takes 2 hours is a great idea.

Suggestions about vet school? I have never been so hard pressed for time, and my health has certainly suffered for it, particularly regarding sleep, meal choices, and exercise. Oh how I miss having a life!
