I’d like to think I manage my time well. I make lists. Lots and lots of lists then mark off the items once they are done.
It doesn’t seem to help. I don’t seem to make any progress.
I get up every morning at 5 or 5:30 at the latest.
First thing I do is let the dog out.
Feed and water the cats.
Feed and water the dog.
Clean the cat litter.
Let the dog back in the house.
Do the dishes.
Do the laundry.
Sweep the floor.
Laugh at my attempt to dust.
Pack lunch for dinner.
Walk on the treadmill for 15-20 minutes.
Then go to work at 7 or 7:10.
I then read emails at my lunch and breaks.
I get home at 5:15 to 5:30.
An hour to make supper.
A few more minutes to eat and talk with hubby (who then goes outside to do ‘man’ things.).
Read emails. Get up to let dog out. Read an email. Get up to let dog in. Read an email. Get up… you get the idea. Sigh.
And then I loose track of my day. This is my writing time, and I never seem to get any writing done!
My son and hubby come home and we talk for twenty minutes. When I look at the time, it’s 11 or 11:30.
I’m giving myself 1 hour on the internet then it’s time to work. I cut 5 shows that I DVR.
I can’t cut my reading time down anymore as I hardly read anymore.
So, we’ll see how it goes.
How about you? What is your biggest time suck and how do you break the habit?
