Time to...start managing time!!!
I'm NOT a morning person. If I could choose when to work I'd start at around 4pm and work until past midnight. But I can't because I have children and my work day has to fit around them. Because I'm in a sort of fog for the first few hours of my work day, I start later than I should - around 10am - and don't make the most of my time. This is going to change - I'm going to sit myself down at 9am every day! I've also started keeping track of my work hours and am amazed at how sporadic they are - stopping and starting, changing from one day to the next! That is also going to change. I'm going to try and keep set hours! What else? Ah yes - I've had a strict policy of working on ONE thing at a time, then clearing it all away before starting the next. I love working like this - it keeps my brain tidy. It's not possible anymore. I'm going to have to start multi-tasking!!! Eeek. But maybe I will manage to post on my blog more often if I get used to switching from one thing to the next.
Lastly - I have to get up at 7am every day for my kids. But I often don't go to sleep until way past midnight! That's another thing that will have to change and may even lift the morning fog a bit.
I'm memorializing all this here! I would add in a plan to exercise regularly but I've been threatening to do that for twenty years and it hasn't happened yet so I'll tackle the other big changes first.
