If you were an early reader of my blog yesterday, you stumbled upon a MESS. When I left for the gym, I didn't realize that the completed file did NOT get uploaded. It was a rough draft full of spelling errors and terrible grammar. Sigh... When I returned and realized what had happened, I had to edit it and finish writing it. Oh well --- I need to be more careful next time.
Yep, even though I started the customer quilt earlier, it was almost bedtime by the time I finished it. I never even made it to the garden. As I reflected on yesterday, I was trying to think about how I spent my day? I did have some paperwork to do - I have to prep the presentations for the next two weekends - as much as possible, so I don't have to do it on the road. So that took some time, and I have more to do this morning.
By the time the dogs got walked, it was lunchtime. The hours just slip by - I am getting stuff done, but man -- it takes way longer than you would like these things to take.
I came across a list of 12 time management tips.
I've got Number 1 down pat --- start each day early and give yourself time to wake up. Thankfully, I don't need time to wake up, and I've been getting up early for years.
The second one is to assume everything will take longer than you planned. YES -- I know that, and I'm getting better at realizing that. Case in point, I'm leaving on Monday, and I've been working and planning, so I don't have to do everything at the last minute. I guess Sunday night will be the test to see how well I fared in my planning process.
So -- I've got two of 12 under my belt. I'll talk about a couple more tomorrow.
I should have noted that my driveway was up for grabs much earlier than I did! This section had been untouched the night before!
