entertainment industry coach question 740: With so many commitments, how do I manage my time?

I chose to answer this question today, because it's 11:30 pm. You see, I made a commitment to YOU, to answer a question per day, and guess what? For me, life showed up today. I didn't have time to blog because of my other priorities. Now, because this is a priority for me, I'm doing it before I go to bed.

I'm sharing this with you as an example of accountability and taking one small step.

You can manage your time by:
1. Making a list of what you WANT to accomplish
2. Making a list of what you MUST accomplish
3. Prioritizing both lists

Then # 4 is KEY:
4. Taking at least one action per day on that list

And # 5 will keep you emotionally stable:
5. Forgiving yourself if you can't

There will be days when I won't be able to post because life will happen, and I will choose to to de-prioritize this commitment because something or someone is more important. And that will be okay. I don't aim for perfection anymore. I aim for enjoying the journey. There are other specific time management techniques that I will offer in this blog. For now I want YOU to practice enjoying your journey until it is no longer something you practice it is who YOU ARE.
