The purpose of the IWSG is to share and encourage, posting on the first Wednesday of each month. You'll find writer doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Support and a common understanding spread throughout the group as many fellow writers can relate. Feel free to JOIN in anytime.
I'm on a constant crash course with time. When I chase it, it flees from me. When I give up, it dangles itself in my face, smirking and whispering, "Whatchya' gonna do with me?" Bet you can picture what happens in those moments - I reach for it and it says, "Psyche!"
Matters not whether I write up an elaborate digital schedule that chimes each time I'm needed, or whether I post sticky notes all over my house, office, and car. I never can accomplish all I set out to do and the culprit is time.
Bad time. Bad time.
But is it? Could it be that I really don't understand how to live successfully? Take time to focus on the little things in life and let those replenish me. Prioritizing has always been a big deal to me. I'm a list maker. Yeah, one of those people. But the older I get the less my lists help me. Frankly, they stress me out.
Maybe the real lesson here is in recognizing new pathways to accomplish our goals whether how big or small they are and bask in the fact that we're still here to do so.
What are your thoughts on time? Are you better then I am in managing it?
