I had a couple of super crazy days at work and completely dropped the ball on days 6 & 7. I am disappointed, but, c’est la vie, right?
Day 8 is 5 minutes on the prompt: Time
This seems particularly apt since I lost all track of time in the last two days and failed to carve out time to write. I think the biggest lesson I’m learning about time is that you need to make time for the things you really love to do and the things that are important to you. Otherwise, no one else is going to ensure those things happen.
I have a pretty firm grasp on time management at work – although lately I’ve felt kind of overwhelmed and disorganized and like I’ve lost a bit of control of my time. I think a lot of this has to do with the fact that I’m still trying to find my way in my career and discover which path I should be on, and where I will truly serve the most good.
It’s difficult when it comes to my personal time and balance because when I’m not at work usually all I want to do is sleep/read/snuggle with my cats/hang out with Travis. I don’t always want to actually do anything because I’m so wiped out from work. I’d like to get to a point where I feel like I have my energy back, and hopefully by the end of this year, and going into 2014 I’ll have found that.
I think we all take time for granted a lot too -not always, but for most of us, having another day, and “more time” to accomplish things just seems like a given. Obviously, it’s not. Not for anyone. You never really know when your time on this planet will be up – so I guess what I’m trying to say is, the rest of this year and next year I want to really learn to make my time count.
