After having several surgeries, where others had to shop for me, I found that I would really try to map out the route so there would not be any back tracking to find what I needed. I find that I continue to do this when running errands myself. Being retired and having far more time than money, time management really does not seem to be a problem.
What I do to manage my time a little bit better is I downloaded a free timer program to my computer and when I'm online I place it as like 1 hour and than it goes off.It sounds like a cuckoo clock and it dose not stop till I shut it off and when I do I reset it for 10 minutes and do a ten minute walk on my gazelle but I only set the 1 hour timer like 2 times a day so I don't get side tracked.I helps a quite a bit that way I know I'm getting in 20 minutes of walking.
Thank you for the article - it puts things into perspective; especially the observation that we don't need to be perfect. And that a little planning goes a long way - I always get slogged down in the morning because I didn't take the time the night before to pack my lunch and other preparations for the day.
Agree about the part being perfectionist. Feel like a never-ending story fixing one tiny flaw after another. In the end, I try to be in between - check everything is fine and keeping things at the basic level.
