I’ve been working diligently on trying to update my website (I’m not ready post it yet, but am getting there) so wanted to redesign the look of my blog a bit to match. I like it much better!
Today is Saturday!
My kiddos are watching cartoons and Mommy (even though she should be cleaning house) is working on her book. Well, her book and her blog and her business card and her onesheet. I’m having a hard time managing my time. I want to get EVERYTHING done, but I think I’d get much more accomplished if I focused on one thing at a time. But, my blog is checked off the list now.
My rule of thumb when I get overwhelmed is 1.) delegate (i.e. I bribed Karalynn with payment of $2.00 if she would *watch* Lacy and Gabby this morning, meaning keep them entertained) 2.) Get the easy stuff done first. If you have 10 things on your plate and 5 of those are simple, get those done first. Then you’re already half way through your list and 5 seems much more manageable. 3.) After step, I get the thing I don’t want to do, done. If out of the 5 left, there is one thing you are just cringing about and don’t want to tackle it, DO THAT! Once it is out of the way, the rest of it isn’t so bad.
So what about you? Anyone have any time management tips to share with everyone? When you have 10 things that you want to work on, how do you pick which ones to do first?
