Making Time


This past week has been a busy one filled with work overload (at college) and stress at work too. I have been struggling to get things done on a schedule specially since I’m in final exams. Things have turned out pretty well but while on the process I noticed that I was lacking time. Specially to cover the study material for my exams. That’s when I reasoned about time and told myself: well, I can’ slow time, stop it or even reverse it. And I certainly can’t create time but I could make time. How? Making a few adjustments. So this is what I did:

1. First I needed some quiet time to put my thoughts in order and decide how to make time. So I listened to music while relaxing.

2. Then I paused blogging so that I could finish what was at hand first but never giving up on ideas to blog about. ( Blogging and learning about blogging can be really time consuming :p).

3. I started to go to bed early so that I could wake up earlier and be more productive ( I tend to be productive after a good rest early in the mornings).

4. I did what I had to do when I had to do it, to minimize the acumulation of work.

5. I rewadrded myself after completing the tasks, not before.

Now I can relax and go back to my normal rithm. So what do you do when you lack time and feel like everything is accumulating and you won’t be able to finish it properly and on time?

Here are two links to posts related to this subject. They offer good tips on how to manage and organize your time:

    It is always a problem…time. Yet we have so much of it. I suspect, as you say that we most probably waste it on things that do not add much to our greater good. Or we just damn lazy 🙂

      We do have much of it, it’s just that sometimes we don’t know how to organize the things we have to do, in order to use time more effectively.
