Sometimes I have a lot of free time and I don’t know what to do with it. Other times (like now) I don’t have much free time and find myself very busy and rushed. I like it when I’m busy because I become more productive and learn to manage my time better.
But I’ve neglected something this week that’s very important to me. My blog. Apparently I’m not managing my time as well as I should be since I haven’t been able to find the time to write any new posts. I’m not going to blame this on school or work because in reality, I probably could have written on my blog if I had managed my time better.
I also noticed that I’ve stopped using to-do lists and David Seah’s Intermittent Task Tracker for projects. I had been using these for months with great results and when I started to have more free time I stopped using them. I don’t know why I stopped using them but I’ve printed off a fresh batch of the Task Trackers and I’m going to use to-do lists again. I guess we’ll see how it goes.
I sure it’s just a season. Everybody goes through dry times. Think about it: how many times do you read entries titled “I’m Back”. It’s nothing weird.

Yeah but I hate reading the “I’m Back” or “I’m Sorry” posts and I really don’t like writing them.

I’ve noticed that I don’t manage my time as well and that I goof off when not using David Seah time management tools. Remmember to give yourslef time to goof off and play video games or watch the “telly” without interruption.
What I do for a living is “play” with graphics and code all day. But sometimes your brain needs a “reset”.

Very true. I play on the computer all day but I play soccer at night to help my brain “reset.” I find it very helpful.
