Who needs to manage their time more effectively? Do you think time is money? Do you put things off until tomorrow? when tomorrow never comes. Do you think when relaxing you could be doing something else that will save you having to do it tomorrow? Let me know your thoughts on this and how you manage your time.

Well there are never enough hours in the day for me, I have to admit that! I'm not so bad at time management at work, - I do what I have to do, but at home I can sometimes drift off into something very time consuming (like MyLot - LOL!), when I should be doing housework, or shoppng or something.

Yes I do try to manage my time more effectively, and I do things that need to be done on time but there are some things which I have to get around to doing as I keep putting them off mainly due to the weather as if it was not so humid I would be able to do it more effectively, and not put it off as Autumn in Australia I do sort my home out more before the winter months come so that I have everything else done in my home and do not wait until tomorrow then.

Yes time is money, time well spent is one thing that really gives you happiness. Relaxing is also important so as to work hard later on. I manage my time by writing out the schedule of the day first thing in the morning or before going to sleep at night and try to stick to my plan but somedays I am not able to do so due to some emergent need. But I feel I manage my time wisely.

I do need to manage my time more effectively as I have a tendency to put things off, which makes it harder to get other things accomplished. I have tried in the past writing down a schedule each day of things that I need or want to get done so that I can make sure everything gets done and I don't keep putting things off. Sometimes this schedule works and sometimes it doesn't due to other things happening, like family emergencies, that need immediate attention. I definitely could be getting things done around the house right now instead of being on the computer. :-)

I know I need to manage my time better. I have a Anatomy and Phisoloy test tomorrow and I haven't studied at all for it. What am I doing? Posting on mylot! Like that is going to help me pass my test!

I pretty much have a routine and try to stick to it the best I can. It's not an easy task, my 2 year old daughter is notorious for distracting me. I find myself lying on the floor with her coloring or building house with blocks. If we happen to go in the backyard, I can pretty much kiss any plans I had for the day goodbye. I really need a laptop. I have a schedule I like to keep with my money making programs but my daughter will always be my top priority. My husband will just have to work harder. LOL
