Here we are in our second week of summer. Yesterday as I rolled into work late for the second day in a row it occurred to me that my time management skills are el sucko! Actually, not so much that it’s my time management skills but that fact that I haven’t made a successful transition to our summer schedule yet. Nor have I even tried. Therein lies the problem. And then I remember, for some reason it usually takes me about two weeks to make the transition to a new routine……..WHY?!??!!?
In the mornings I am now finding myself with a surplus of time and that is the foundation of my time management rearrangement challenge. With all this extra time I feel I can do so much more, neglecting the clock and then rushing like a madwoman in the last 5 minutes and leaving late (BUT…..still managing to get it done….just late!).
Last night I looked at my morning and mentally readjusted my “plan” allotting myself a set time for my Quiet time in the morning with a definitive END time to my Quiet activities, thus BEGINNING my daily routine of getting the girls up, ready and out the door. ON. TIME.
Here we go. Day 1 of readjusting the summer clock. Wish me luck!! Anyone else have problems adjusting to new changes in schedules, i.e. summer, back-to-school?? Or is it just me?
I definitely also have this problem. If I sleep in an extra hour one day, it throws off my whole schedule for the next week! My poor schedule is so delicate
you and me both! Made it “on time” today…woot woot!
My kids don’t get their summer holidays for another week. So I’m still in full blown work & school mode. I think I might take some inspiration from you for re-organsing my mornings from July onwards though. Thanks!
If you can learn from my lack of organization, by all means….carry on!!! And if it doesn’t work….ah, there’s always the next day, and the next….
