If I gave my husband a dollar for every time I uttered this phrase to him, well, yes – of course he would be rich. Like, really rich. I definitely think my clock ticks faster than his and that’s why I am always begging him for a few more precious minutes as we are hustling around the house trying to get ready for whatever is planned that day.
Time management. Ugh. Something I used to be pretty good at. However, since giving birth to my beautiful daughter last year that phrase “time management” has begun to haunt me. Now those words look like some sort of ancient hieroglyphic phrase that I can’t quite decipher the meaning of, no matter how hard I try.
The bottom line is that there is just so much more “stuff” to do now! So, what to do? How do I add more hours to my day? Impossible. I must start eliminating things on my day’s agenda that are not of great importance, things that are time-wasters, sucking up my valuable minutes. That way, the important things still get done in a timely matter. What are your time-wasters? If yours have to do with your morning routine then check out this fantastic piece on some ways that you can salvage your time in the AM – and gain it back when you really need it!
Ok, I’m off to wash & fold laundry, feed the baby, make dinner and vacuum – all in a timely fashion! 🙂
