Raise your hand if your busy. Who isn't these days? Our society makes it seem like if you're not multitasking, you're not doing enough. With everything we put on our figurative plates it's amazing anything gets done.
I have a time management problem. I don't have enough of it. Between being a wife, mother, nurse, student, writer, and blogger it's amazing I get anything done. Thus the fact that I haven't written a blog in a while. My goal when I started this was at least one a week. Failed. When I started writing my novel my goal was for one chapter a week. Failed. My house is sometimes messy and sometimes I take my kids to McDonald's for dinner because I don't feel like cooking. So what! It doesn't mean I'm a failure. I am doing the best I can.
I think that we all strive to be this perfect ideal person. Do they exist? In who's definition of perfect? I have a really good friend of mine who does this. She is a wonderful friend, mother, and wife; but, nothing she does in her eyes is ever good enough. When in reality she just needs to cut herself a little slack.
I have to remember that. When I am feeling bad because I didn't get my blog done, a chapter written, or my house is a little messy. Sometimes you just do the best you can.
If you have a great time management tip or something that has helped you, please share it with me in the comments! I'd love to hear from you.
