I need more of it.
I have so much I want to do - short term, long term, everyday and yet there is never enough time to do it all.
I have come to the realization that I need to delegate my time. Really consider and determine what I want to do, plan for it and then make it happen.
I am taking the next week to truly plan my goals. Some are fun or enjoyable (like I want to keep enough time to read the morning news, read books and learn new things, tennis) then there are the things I have to do (grocery shop, maintenance on the house, laundry, cook & clean) then there are things that I need to do (spend time with my family, go to work, write a novel). I am trying to really determine what it is that I need, delegate time and days for each thing and make it happen.
I admit, I get sidetracked on some things that I enjoy, I spend a lot of time doing more than I need to, but I also am a very driven person. I feel achievements from creating a list and crossing things off.
So, now I need to focus on creating a realistic, plausible list. Not a "do everything that pops into my head" list, but a legitimate list with my responsibilities and my goals.
Phew. This has not been easy, just coming to this point. I remember a time in my life where I thought I had the whole world ahead of me and time was not a major consideration. Yes, I had deadlines and accomplished them, but this is a little different.
