I've got a diary and things are slotting into place!
From sitting in front of the PC or a blank piece of paper and having so many hundreds of things to do, and achieving none of them - I've got a diary, I've identified spare time and I've given specific tasks to these times to ensure that I'm better organised and I'm actually getting things done.
And, do you know what? It feels like a massive burden has been lifted from my shoulders. I'm still using spare time like this, sat on the park and ride bus, to write blogs and respond to emails. But I'm happier in the knowledge that I have other things in some sort of controlled order and this time can be spent on things like this.
Each time slot has been given it's own specific tasks, linked to my start of the week list of items I must get done. This week is-
*risk assessments for my photography course and the new business
*move photographs from memory cards to disk and format cards
*get completely up to date with all pending surveys and cash in where I can for Christmas presents
*fully research and contact small business/new business grants providers in my area
*hair cut (I know it's trivial but it's been far too long)
These and a few other things have made it to my "to do list" and I intend to keep using it to ensure I hand a plan, and I can sleep at night.
