Time Management Tuesday: A Pop TM Quiz

It's 1:30 PM Monday. You've been to a run-of-the-mill doctor's appointment and the drug store. You've started dinner, because late afternoon is always a time bomb. You've put in a load of wash. You've made some calls. You ate lunch in front of the computer.

What do you do now?

  1. The day is more than half gone. What the Hell? You might as well continue to read about last night's Oscars and go to some more of those sites with pictures of celebrities whose outfits failed them.
  2. You have only a couple of hours left to the day. If you spend them doing home-related tasks (cleaning that bathroom you haven't touched since Christmas, vacuuming), you'll be in a better position to go back to work tomorrow. You can always do a whole lot tomorrow.
  3. You have only a couple of hours left to the day. You should spend them on short-term tasks that don't require deep concentration, like researching submissions and planning where you'll submit. Submitting work is Goal 1 for this year.
  4. You have at least two units of time left.  Finishing a draft of Good Women is an objective for Goal 3 for this year. You are trying to underpaint as many chapters as possible before May 1, so that you can do a NaNoWriMo-type project with your May Days group. Only two months left until May. You did not get far with this last week.
Work quickly and carefully. You may share your answers with others.
