Times Flies and Doesn't Come Back

I don't need anything to remind me that time is passing at breakneck speed. At least, it is in my household. But time may be standing still for you. . . or maybe you just think it is. If you need a reminder that time is valuable and can't be replaced, invest in this cute little clock. Hang it in your office, right over your desk, and then sit yourself down and finish that novel. You can price it/order it HERE.
Now share some of your time-management tips with me.

I make a schedule for myself, and try to keep to it. When I sit down to schedule, I break up my days into blocks, so I can do one thing for as long as possible. And everytime I have a big project due, I break it up into "how much do I need to do every day" and then set a goal. Otherwise, my time gets away from me, big time.

I really like this. Thanks, Rebecca. Breaking days into blocks so that you can do one thing for AS LONG as possible makes good sense. My time constantly gets away from me. In fact, visualize this: a 61 year old woman chasing TIME down a busy interstate. That would be ME!

I love this clock. I don't know that I'm a good time manager. There are days when I feel all I do is waste time...

Angie said...

JESS, no way are you 61!

Jess said...

Erica, you are one of the best examples I know of great time management!

Angie, why do you think I look so worn out all the time? Because I AM 61. I'm ready to pull a Benjamin Button. :-)

Neat clock. And, at $369, a real bargain. Time organization? Who has time to figure that out!

Time management rule #1 - you can't 'find' time to write - you have to make it!

Schedule & set aside a block of time - be it 10 minutes or 2 hrs - to write, open your WIP and just write. You may not get anywhere the first few times but as your butt (and brain) get used to sitting there with that silly file open the words are bound to start moving.

JMHO :-)

Pam, my butt is too used to sitting. :) Sometimes I feel like I'd write more if I could stand. :)
