Time is out there. The thing of it is this, where do we find it? There are days, sometimes too many of them in a row, when we have no time to do everything we want or need to do. Are we spreading ourselves too thin? Are we choosing less important tasks over more important ones? Are we spending too much time on something that doesn’t need it? Maybe. Whatever then answer is, learn to focus yourself. Pace yourself. There are times when things slow down and we have all the time in the world. This is when the waters are the calmest. We can wade and relax. Meditate if need be. We should be doing this in the rough times too because it helps in gaining focus.
I think it has much to do with the “Oh no!” effect. This is when everything in your life comes rushing at you at one time. Your schedule changes. Everyone wants something. How should times like that be handled? In my estimation it’s different for everyone simply because we are all different. What I do is focus first and foremost on the most important events that need to get done. Then go from there. Sometimes we just need to say no to somethings. Others will live on if you are not the one doing whatever it is you were asked to do. If you’re a writer, write. Let that be your most important task. Fit it in even if you only get 500 words done. At least you’d be doing it.
