Good Morning! Today, I wanted to discuss something that has affected me for as long as I can remember. Even though I consider myself to be a creative person with great ideas, I don’t always execute those ideas to the best of my ability. A lot of my issues come about because I’m not organized so instead of setting up schedules and doing specific tasks as specific times, I attempt to do everything all at once and overwhelm myself. This could all be avoided by working on my time management skills.
According to WebMd, there are 6 time management tips that will work for any lifestyle or profession and they are:
1. Make a Time Diary
2. Learn to Say “No”
3. Create a Time-Based, To-Do List
4. Let Your Computer Help
5. Multitask Safely
6. Don’t Be a Perfectionist

Out of all the things on the list that I need to do, creating a time based to do list is number 1 for me. I realize that I not only need to create a to do list but I need to set out a specific time to do each task on my list. That way, I won’t feel overwhelmed when it comes to completing the tasks and I can also schedule activities that aren’t work related and use that down time to re-energize and prepare myself for the next day.
I work from home for half of the day so time management is very important to the success of the freelance work that I do. If I don’t complete a task on time, I’m mainly hurting myself and most importantly my pockets! I am learning slowly but surely that being ready may take some time but planning and being organized will get your further in life.
Progress is definitely a process and I thank you all for being so patient with me. Love ya!
Always remember to love and live luxuriously!
