There is a certain sense of irony that I’ve been a really inconsistent blogger ever since releasing my eBook on Time Management. Whoops.
Realities of Time Management
But to be fair (to, uh, me), and important part of time management (and one that serves you in all parts of life, not just blogging) is realising that as things change, so do your goals, time, and energy.
The first half of this year was taken up by a new full time job, which is usually a busy enough thing on its own. But I went and added a double-weighted postgrad uni subject to my workload. I’ve never studied anything in that much detail and at that level before.
So, when your plans of blogging weekly (which were blogging daily when the blog started) have been drowned in neo-liberal economic development theory essays – well, that’s when you just do your best. Your best might not be the goal you set. But it is your best.
And your best changes with what you have on your plate. Life is not static, so don’t expect your time management to be static either!
How do you cope with changing priorities? Do you give yourself permission to accept the change and everything that goes with it?
