I want readers to know that these are my experiences about my own time management. What I've done to "fritter time away" and how I've come to change my behavior.
Here are my time wasters: 1. I find things to fix around the house. 2. I have to do errands away from my work at home business. 3. I get tension headaches on occasion from using my time unwisely. 4. I'm surprised at the end of a week, about how little I accomplished in 5 days of work. 5. I want to give up. 6. I blame others or my circumstances for not getting my work done. 7. I go around in circles with myself, flitting from thing to thing.
Wait! I've found a better way to not waste my time in "frittering". 1. Plan, plan, plan. 2. Nothing has to be done all at once. 3. I take time off to do only what is necessary. 4. Have fun. 5. Get things done, one at a time. 6. Make a list and prioritize it. 7. Give myself a reward. 8. I "lighten up".
For all of you who have felt and lived through these time wasters, may you devise your own list to be a time management achiever.
