Best Laid Plans of Mice and Men ...

Thursday, January 8, 2015

So I have been trying to get back into being on top of things.  You know like packing my lunch, blogging and couponing.  But, honestly sometimes I feel as if there aren't enough hours in the day or at least enough that I want to be awake to get everything done.  Oh and then … I get sick and that totally knocks out an entire weekend. 

Doesn't it always seem like we either have a million and one things going on or nothing {cue the crickets}? So how do I get back into the swing of things? How do I make time to get everything done and keep it rolling? Can I just type that in google and TADA all my problems solved? I think not.  
I guess the trick to getting on track is to start with one task, accomplish it and then move on to the next.  Seems simple enough … right?  Well, also that whole "lack of time" issue really needs to be kicked in the butt.  What are the things I do have time for and are they the best things to be spending my time on? 
Well first things first, (I'm the realist … LOL) I packed my lunch today. Second, just like back in the day when I made a budget, I kept track of everything I bought each day and started to see a pattern of waste, so I will start keeping track of my time. Not to the second or minute but you know generally if I spend an hour doing such and such at the end of the day I can evaluate it and try to see where I am wasting my time. Also, when I was budgeting my money it doesn't happen over night I made mistakes but writing it down helped me stay accountable.  I'm trying my hardest to be all techy about my planning these days. I am not going anywhere near a stationary section of a store until at least April (should be safe right) for fear of buying tons of planners I never write in.  So, I guess we will see how it goes ... honestly I think there is a lot less TV viewing in my future.

So, how do you get back on track or manage your time?

  1. Great stuff! Yes, the TV has not been on since the weekend since I am trying to get to sleep earlier each now. I realized jumping on the net once the kids are asleep is a total waste and I could be getting much needed rest.

    Let's keep each other accountable. I like the idea of one small task, one small victory at a time!

    High 5!
