With summer being over and kids going back to school many of us are back to trying to juggle our time. If not for family, than to write, read, or even have a moment to ourselves.
I won’t deny it, I’m a list person. Even now as I type this I have a notebook next to me with a list of things I must do and I have my trusty highlighter next to it to mark off the stuff I’ve finished.
Can I live without lists? For sure, but I find them a lot more easier when it comes to spreading out things I have to do that day or that week.
I have noticed that as more projects come my way I sometimes struggle with trying to get everything done. It feels like there are not enough hours in the day. Not enough days in the week.
It is not easy to manage time when you are trying to balance life, family and a career. As authors we are not only writing the books but we are responsible for everything that comes along with our career. We have to find some kind of balance between responsibility, life and career.
At times it can be a bit overwhelming and we feel like no matter how much work we do we have barely made a dent in the pile that grows larger and larger.
I have come to the conclusion that there will never be enough time to do everything that we want to do so the only thing we can do is take it one day at a time. We also have to learn not to take on so much and make the pile grow so high where it is ready to tumble over. I know myself that sometimes I have a hard time saying no and take on way too many things at once.
Unless we discover a way to clone ourselves we have to try to do our best when it comes to time management.
I will continue to work away with my list and try to plan and work my time around so that I can get the most out of the hours I do have.
Do you sometimes feel overwhelmed with your work? Do you make lists to try to manage your time?
