First of all, I want to apologize to my readers/followers for my absence lately, the last few months. I have just been a little overworked and have not had time to sit down to come up with and write topics for this blog here. But things are better now and hopefully back on track.
Time is something that seems to always eludes us when we need more of it and drowns us when we want less. There are countless methods “out there” to allow us to manage our time better, some better than others and some not so much. Time still eludes us no matter what.
The Best thing to do is to make and keep up a regular and constant schedule.
Once you set a schedule, you need to keep to it with discipline and not deviate from it too much if at all and if you do return to it ASAP! We have problems with the time available to us only when we do not stick to and support our set schedules to the “ninth degree.”
Another vital element of better managing your time is to have some flexibility in your schedule so that if and when you do deviate from one thing or another on it for whatever reason, that deviation will not mess you up too much with the rest. At the same time do not take the flexibility of your schedule as an excuse to deviate a lot from it. Even with said flexibility, any deviation should be avoided as much as possible. The flexibility is there only help you to support your schedule even when you from time to time deviate from it not to urge you to do so.
The worse thing that you can do for your time management is to set a schedule, maintain it for a time but suddenly you deviate two or three times and then another two or four, and suddenly your program is all messed up, and you are struggling to keep up with everything.
What is a life full of work but no “play?” We all need to be able to enjoy our sleeves just as much we need to get things done. Otherwise, if all of our time is full of just work but little to no fun time for us to enjoy we tend to “burn out” at some point and can no longer keep up our busy schedules very well if at all. Personal relaxation time is a crucial part for managing one’s busy schedule and the time available for everything in it.
To not have to fight with “father time” and your schedule, you need to stick to it and deviate from it. You also need to make sure to have time set aside for your own personal “me time.” The best organize schedule in the world would be great and all but will do “Jack” if you do not take time actually to relax as well and to enjoy yourself. Time is indeed an elusive thing, but it only causes you any real trouble when you are not consistent in your maintaining of your schedule and you do not take time to have fun as well as to work. You do those two things, and you should have “all the time in the world!”
