Time is a currency..
... was the slogan of todays class. The discussion we had showed that only a few of us are good with time management. All had different complaints and problems,but the essence was one : we all wish the day had more than 24 hours.
Paul asked us to make a plan for the upcoming week and estimate average time for all of these activities. And there I understood that I really did not know how to make that. It has always been so strange for me to do so,as I have thought it is possible to do anything as it comes. I think this is the main reason why I am always rushing in a hurry,because there is so much to do in one day. Scheduling your week may help you to check if you allocate right time to your activities. On the other hand,I still do not believe that everything would be as you scheduled before,because it may take longer or less. Anyway, I think it is worthy to use the papers distributed by Paul and start planning,and who knows may be that is really effective?
The other point was that all activities can be classified in 4 groups. It is in my nature that very often I switch to things which are less important and this is my main problem(butterflying). In my opinion,it would be hard for me to change my habits and stop watching,reading and doing stuff which has no importance,but it would be useful to try to estimate the time needed for every category of activities. I think, one of the tasks of the class today was to show how we can keep up everything if we find the balance.
Let's see if it works for me.
