Schedule, schedule, schedule

Standard

I’ve been working from home for the past few weeks and I learned an important lesson: it’s really important to schedule your life when one isn’t made for you.

I woke up each morning knowing I had to put x number of hours into this project, finishing writing x article, take photos for x, respond to emails, clean my apartment, get groceries, make dinner and do a dozen other tasks.

So I’d wake up each morning, make myself coffee and breakfast, and then panic about how to finish everything. I’d start one task then partway through jump to another. I got frustrated and scatter brained and got nothing done.

And then I did this.

blogI schedule what I’m doing each hour of the day between 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. From working on freelance articles to getting ready for the holidays, every hour I know what I need to be doing.

Here’s hoping this week goes more smoothly than the last few!
