2014 A New Year and Time Management
I love a good plan! Ask my hubby he will testify 🙂 Let me tell you I have one already set up to welcome in 2014. Every year I mention that I am not a resolution person. But a plan maker. Well ,that I am. As we make our way into the new year I am creating a time management calender. Isn’t that what is so great about a new year. Starting anew, setting goals and looking forward to new possibilities. Time management my sweet bloggy friends, I believe that will be my key to success in the new year!
Blogging, my shops, my blog design site, answering emails, comments and staying connected through social networking can consume my day ( and night) quickly.Although I love it all. ♥ I do recognize that I need to do it in smaller pieces. Instead of my usual 12-16 hour chunks. Sometimes I just need to go “old school” and put it all down on paper, in a graph or in a cute pie chart.
This is it- This plan is my 2014 plan for Monday, Tuesday and Friday’s only. Being overly regimented, even if its practical ,can be, well…….restricting and a bit boring 🙂 Thank you to my sweet hubby who took my notes and created this wonderful graph. It will be taped on my desk where it will be a reminder. Graph reads bottom to top.
Many of you are probably want to have better time management too, control your calendar, wrangle the clutter and tame the chaos that fills your days. Lets do it together. I invite you to take some ideas from my graph, to make your own and share it. Managing time wisely can be a great way to enjoy and indulge in the things that make our lives worth living. I will hold myself accountable for healthy time management and occasionally post about it and let you know how well I am doing. I believe it will be the key to success in the new year.
I have a sentence in my blogging tips section that reads- “ it’s a blog, not your life. Move away from your computer, live your life. Then sit down and share it with us. We look forward to reading about it.” I already try and do it with my blogging and now I will do that with my shops too.
Do you have a plan for better time management in the new year?
See you at the Thursday Favorite Thing hop ( starts tomorrow night at 8 pm (MST)
