Ravens writing assingment (Time magament Experiment)

Friday, January 10, 2014

This I KNOW so far.....doing research on my patterns why do I have issues on time magaement
What: Time Magament 
ISSUE : structuring my time .... 
General Information...: I have a different lifestyle than those who work everyday 9_5 m through friday... this more for those who for various reasons need a flex schudle--- stay at home types trying to starting thier own buniess or empty nesters or or semi retires, or have a disabity (hard to find jobs that is the right fit).

Ok i have a flex schudle but not quite mastered it... i would Bring awarenesss on why does it work how can change it.....the issue IS FILLING IN THE TIME....soo...people have said general advice you can do what you want.....
me I wouldn't know what to begin.... what projects??? or fun stuff or work on Important ones??? which goes first proactive ...important tasks or bit of fun stuff .. emoticon

situation I get sometimes: your Inner child IS SCREAMING at you when have FUN?!?!?! When you have an important assaingment.?? What would any one do..suggestions??

Here another: sometimes I have a flood of Infomation coming at worse time and I don't have a notepad or phone tablet etc i hate forgetting an insirpied ideas for an Importent angle for a story.... what would you do.

PRO  emoticon
i can foucus on my work a little more
Having setup my schedule as a guide or flex mode..i can mix various projects to get a bit more progress on my goals that has been on hold....
leaving it blank I can fill certain things in my schudle 

CONS emoticon
I can be bored doing the same routine.
If i put in stone I would not be able to adjust for unexpected emergies...
not sure if left anything out.....

Various hidden TRIGGERS: 
Trigger1. flex schudle to me is like a blank canvas..not sure where to begin... "havent learn to fill in the colors or time or various projects on hold" soo. I know there errands sometimes..other days I stay in...um..what do I do? 
What can do to vary my routine so that I do not get bored..??

Trigger2 Other times I worked too much on a task which I'm learning let go a little more... i would like time so do well and hate to disappoint myself and others, afraid other reaction from others in the past (not hogwarts) 
Maybe that why I wait a bit before I do something, not sure how to write this.
Once I see a few then i know what to do.

Trigger3 another issue is creativity comes at wired times.or racing issues in my brain wired up can't relax........ like at 1130 pt Ideas bubbling like crazy .. have to write down ortherwise keep me up talking to myself which bit crazy since I can't hear!!!
I need child rebels at struture or big time pressure..

WHOA-HO! NO WONDER I have a struggle with time magament!!!!!!!!!!! What the solution or asnswers???? emoticon

What the right balance of play and work or struture or something else..... or that the right answer what is these things if not the right one?????

Type of schuldle (experiment to if it works....) emoticon

    If you have a mixture of fun and not so fun things to accomplish, you might spend X number of minutes (15, 30, 45, 60 - whatever you set up) on a not so fun task. When you have done that, reward yourself with a more fun activity.

    Hope this helps a bit!

    Maybe you can schedule things to do outside your house 3 times a week to break the schedule up: classes to take; volunteer opportunities; time out with friends or other family members, for example. That has helped me. Also, write a list of goals you want to accomplish other than Hogwarts and set goals to do them. It will be fun! Good luck. I have faith you will find the way. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Wow you've put a lot of thought into identifying the issues that are causing problems - good job!

    I struggle with many of the same things - I have a completely free day but I don't accomplish what I want to accomplish - I get sidetracked on SparkPeople or email or something.

    As far as keeping notes of ideas - I keep pads of paper and pens in every room (except the bathroom!) If I think of something I write it down immediately BUT then I take it and put it in ONE place (inside my planner/binder) so I know where to look for it. I end up with a lot of scraps of paper but at least they're together when I want to find them again.

    I've been reading a lot about time management - the one thing that I'm trying to do is to do the most important things first (my writing and exercise) BEFORE I check my email or SparkPeople or other forums where I get distracted. One idea that I haven't tried yet was don't have coffee (or tea, or whatever "treat" you start your day with) until you've gotten your most important thing(s) done.

    Block out a section of time, say 2 or 3 hours, to use for your most exciting ideas - but don't fill it in - just have the time marked out and fill it in with whatever is most appealing or most urgent for that day. That way you have the time but you aren't forced to do something you don't feel like doing.

    Those are just some of my thoughts - I'm trying to figure my schedule out like you! emoticon emoticon
