I'm asking. I wish I had an answer, some sort of inspirational idea of how to solve the problem of not having enough time. I have all of these projects I want to work on, a novel to finish and this pretty awesome family that I like to spend time with. Add that to the daily or weekly errands and chores to keep the house from becoming completely filthy and I'm trying my best to do it all.
It's not going so well.
Time management is such a tricky subject. I see these people who can get so much work done and I'm envious. Though at the same time, I know I need time for rest and self-care. I am focusing on how to eliminate distractions, but sometimes those distractions are worthy of attention. Playing a game with my daughter is a distraction very much worth pursuing. Also, some of the random idea rabbit holes produce great ideas to develop or progress my work.
I've been trying to boil my day down to the baseline priorities. I look at the calendar and start there. Then I add my novel and one household chore. I try not to overbook myself so I can still get some meditation or a yoga in as well as have some time with my family.
I am trying so hard to make it all work - to be more productive and really get some big things accomplished this year. All I can do is work with that intention everyday and do the best I can with the time I have.
I am trying to figure out how blogging works into all of this. Over winter break, I had time to really focus on my blog and develop the thoughts in my head to share. Now that we are back to school with a full, structured week it is harder to set aside this extra time. I am doing my best and I ask for patience for those of you reading my work. I thank you so much for your support.
How do you manifest time? How do you get it all done? How do you set your priorities?
I wish you all the best in whatever you are setting out to do this year.
