How do you manage your time on the computer with the rest of your life? Do you limit your time, have a certain time of day you go on and stick to it?
I need help! lol
In 2010, I want to be more productive, procrastinate less, and stop wasting so much time! I keep putting off my photography goals because of it (not to mention my lack of self confidence but that's another story!) I really would like to make some money with it and not have to work my crummy part time job!
A big part of the problem is my computer time. I like blogging and reading others and finding new online friends, I like keeping in touch with friends and family through FB and a few other groups and social sites I belong to. I don't want to give it all up.....But sometimes it interferes with stuff I should be doing!
You know how it goes......I'm just gonna check my email quick, OK well what's up on twitter, FB? Gotta check out this video, so and so's pics, maybe I'll play Bejeweled Blitz for a bit. Let's check out the google reader and read a few blogs....from there you get 10 other links, books, movies etc. you want to check out. And it goes on and on and the next thing you know hours have passed and you've gotten nothing done! The kids will be home in five minutes and your afternoon was totally unproductive!
Or is that just me? lol
Last week was a bit better. I started putting things I wanted to do in my planner. At the suggestion of my husband who said maybe I need to start scheduling time for things I want to get done instead of just having a running list of tasks or projects. Actually pencil them in at a certain time on my planner. At first I thought he was crazy but I think it just may work for me if I keep at it.
