On Priorities

Just a quick post to apologize for my highly irregular posting lately.

The good news: I finally have a day job that’s interesting enough not to make me sit around bemoaning the fact that I’m not a writer all day. I’m working for an interesting, dynamic young company, doing their social media and best of all, running and writing for their blog (hooray for getting to professionally write stuff longer than a tweet!)

The bad news: having to use your actual brain at work leaves less space in your head for all the other things. From forgetting to RSVP to things to being late on birthday presents to forgetting my keys—I’ve been kind of a mess lately. I haven’t been writing enough, I haven’t been exercising enough, I haven’t been cleaning enough, and I definitely haven’t been blogging enough.

But I will figure it out. I always do. So if you are reading this, I want to thank you for bearing with me on this journey that is being a full-time professional, part-time writer, part-time blogger, and full-time human. It’s hard—but I wouldn’t give it up for anything.

If you have any time management tips—please let me know!

  1. I use my phone and google for everything… google calendar, google reminders, google keep lists. That way things aren’t forgotten!

  2. Pick the ONE most important/most urgent item on your to do list and after work just do it. (Or at least steps of it if it is a huge task.) You will sleep better with the accomplishment and unimportant tasks will just go away. I have discovered much of my to do list pain was self-inflicted and that items that really need to get done, do get done and on-time too.
