Image: Time Is Ticking by Petr Kratochvil
It’s been awhile since I’ve posted. I have so many things on my plate right now. However, I am still passionate about expressing my thoughts and encouragements related to supporting families as I like to do with this blog. I have been pursuing my writing career (and other things), which has brought up new feelings for me. There is so much that I want to do, but it seems like there is so little time. The new feelings that I am experiencing are related to trying to continually explore who I am and what I ultimately want to do in life. I feel compelled to work as a mental health therapist as well as pursue a good-sized freelance writing career.
I won’t go on and on about me, but my point in writing this to you is to express how I have reminded myself of the importance of time management. Time management is so important in these busy days as most people are well aware. However, we need to give ourselves a break and know that we can only do what we can do in the 24 hours of the day. Plus, that has to include sleep time. I am excited to be writing this blog, but I know that I do have to sleep at some point tonight. Although there are many things that need to get done or that I just want to get done, my internal voice is reminding me that I should moderate myself. By this, I mean
- I should keep my sleep schedule fairly on track,
- keep my expectations of what I can do in a day reasonable,
- and manage my time so that I balance my time wisely rather than spending so much time on one or two tasks that I let go of other things that really need attention (like the dishes that haven’t gotten done today ;o) ).
I wish you the best in your time management efforts. Feel free to leave a comment about how you struggle or what you do well with regarding time management.
Thanks for reading.
