Where does all my time go?

I have so many ideas but not enough time! I feel like the time flies by most of the time. I don't think there is enough time in the day, do you? For everything that I want to do, from watching movies, to blogging I never have enough time to do it all. What about you? Do you have enough time to do everything you want in one day? Especially on days when I have a lot of work to do, then I really have no time to do all the things I would like to get done. Maybe I want to do too many things in one day! I think there are some things in this world that are too time consuming. I love going on the computer but I think it takes up too much of my time sometimes. I can get on the computer and BAM 2 hours are gone! How does that happen? I get so involved and concentrated on everything that I am doing on the computer that the time just flies by. Even if I just go on the computer to just check something, I will end up doing 10 other things and spending an extra hour than I planned on. It's not only with the computer though, it's with a lot of things. I'm amazed at how quick the time can go by! Aren't you? I have ideas for quite a few blogs. I think blogging takes up a lot of time as well. If I was to do all the ideas I had for different blogs, I think I would be blogging my whole day away! Does anyone else feel like this? Do you have a lot of ideas but don't have time to do them all? Or do you just feel like time passes you by?

Time really flies! Maybe you should do less things in a day,and give yourself more free time to relax.Life is short,you wouldnt be like to cherish nothing but hard work when you are old ,though you seem to enjoy your life here.As for me,I just focus on what I must do today and leave something unnecessary tomorrow.Maybe thats not a good habit,but work can never be finished. Have a great day!

"Work can never be finished" I like that saying. I think it is something that I need to remember because I feel like I need to get all my work done before I relax. I think I need to get into a routine or schedule and get what I need to get done that day done so that I can relax and not focus on tomorrow or other days. When I go to relax it's like in the back of my mind I am thinking about everything that i need to do. I will remember that saying, maybe it will help me out some!

I can so relate! My biggest wish is more time in my life; I think I wish for that more than money! I am responding to your discussion at a time where I have to re-evaluate what I do with my days. I am a writer and I have a blog that since I joined MyLot has not been updated as much as I would like. Because I want to monetize my writing I know something will have to give and it may have to be the blog as I've only made about $8 from it in 6 months. I belong to several writing sites and I'm considering writing for Today.Com. I don't know if that is any better earnings wise though. My time on MyLot will have to be cut back too. I have spent entire days here! Yes time flies and it is so frustrating to never have enough time for all you want to do!

I am glad somebody can relate. I have decided to delete all the blogs except for one. I have decided to keep my blog about making money online because I think it is helping me to get referrals. I have tried other things to get referrals and the blog seems to be the best one. I think I can keep up with just one blog. Making money online is very time consuming so I think I am going to cut back on some of my time that I spend on making money online all together. I am going to limit how much time I spend making money online everyday. YES.... it can be frustrating to never have enough time for everything that I want to do. I think one thing that will help is if I can manage my time better.

I have discovered something which I think is going to help me with my life. This might be helpful to you and others as well. I decided a while ago to simplify my life. I will no longer go after everything that comes to my mind. As an example, I have decided not to pursue my websites anymore. I made a thousand or so websites and I have nothing to show for it, just the expense. I will drop this and do something that is sure to make money for me, like concentrating on my farm. Cheers!!

It's funny you say that. I deleted all the blogs except one. I am doing well on that one and I have decided to focus my attention on only things that need to be focused on. Such as college, and other things. I think I have a problem with wanting to get too much stuff done in one day. I have anxiety and my mind tends to run constantly. Usually I am stressed but I think here lately my anxiety is causing me to not be able to relax. I am not stressed just want to get a lot done here lately. Thank you for your response and your tips. I think they will help me, as long as I remember them.

There are so many old sayings about time, such as "time is money","time is life" amd so on. They all show that time is important for us. In my opinion, time is fair to everybody, the important key is how you spend your own time. If I do something I'm interested in, I always feel the time goes very fast. On the contrary, time seems goes so slowly if I do something boring. In a word "how time flies", so we should cherish every second we are spending. Let them become meaningful.

We feel short of time only when we have something interested to do. One hour seems only half when mylotting. Either the infrastructure or the computer is too slow, which make the waiting longer, and photo uploading impossible. Earlier, I jumped from one thing to another, idling all day, with TV on. I seldom sit and watch. I had plenty of time then. According to the great scientist of relativity, time is flexible depending on who or what you are with.
