Can You Manage Your Time?


I just spent several hours at my LYS (Local Yarn Store for civilians) KnitKnack in Maplewood, New Jersey drooling over yarn and talking to Meera the owner. We were talking about the need to manage our time. She is a busy business owner with children and appreciates a good time management plan. Many of us in 2011  find ourselves with more unstructured time than we are used to.  Baby boomers retiring, corporate employees downsized, full-time workers cut to part-time all may find themselves spending the good part of the day getting ready to do something but never accomplishing it.

I am one of those people. I only secured one day of  teaching a week for the months of May, June, July and August.  I find myself starting each day without a plan. Some evenings I feel that I didn’t get anything done. After my conversation today I vowed to set up a schedule for myself. This doesn’t have to be a painful task. This evening before you get too tired, think of what you want to do tomorrow. Write it down or better schedule it on your computer, phone, in your planner, whatever. Let’s see how this goes for the next seven days. I have so many things I want to do, how about you?
