Time Management Tuesday: A Real Life Time Management Experience That May Not Be That Helpful

My primary work goal today was to write a 53-word story about a shell-shaped noodle. That's how I got caught in my bathrobe out in my deck garden reading about food writing when a delivery truck pulled into my driveway. I had to duck behind the gas grill.

That was a half-hour ago. I now have my 53 words on the conchiglie and can get dressed.

This, people, is what we call staying on task. Also, since I got a blog post out of it, milking an experience for all it is worth, known, too, as a multiplier

I love it! Staying on task has been hard. Had to set an alarm to make sure I am dressed, and have done a to do list every day since March 15. Some days are more successful than others, but I think those two things help me to get a little more done. Congrats on your story progress!

To-do lists are a huge help. I do them for the week, with some things assigned to specific days, some things just to get done in the 7 day period. Sometimes someone will want me to do something, and I'll think, Ah, that's not on this week's list.
