I have two big time management problems: I give myself far too many “To Dos” in one day, and set out to do a super job on everything.
My spouse has said to me: “Adequate on time is better than superlative late.” She’s right, and when I heed her advice I do a much better job overall. But my lengthy daily to-do list ends up putting me way behind. I have tried organizing weekly, but too many things come up unexpectedly for that to really work.
Like piling more on your plate that you can possibly eat, how do you manage to avoid putting more on your work plate than you can handle….particularly if there are many things to do, plus many more things you would like to do or see need to get done?
