I've decided to get back to the daily to-do list. I think I'm a lot more efficient when I have a list to check things off of. (I hope I'm not the only one that puts things on the to-do list that have already been done, just so they can be crossed off) I have a lot to get done in the next week and a half, so I really need to be more efficient. Hopefully this will help. I NEED it to help, Dudes. Seriously. I fail lately. And if I'm getting things done more efficiently, then there's more time for the fun things in life, and boy do my kids need some more fun in their lives. I'm ready. I'm quite sure they're ready. Let's do this thing! (don't remember where that quote is from, but it fits quite nicely, don't you think?)
I think that if I'm going to become more efficient, I'm going to have to set myself some limits. Particularly with internet usage. I'm going to give the timer method a go. Set the timer, and I have to get everything done in that time or it waits until tomorrow. Yikes. That's going to be a little tough. It's so easy to get sucked into the computer and all it's secrets for, like, hours. Yeesh. That's not happy. I'm not sure yet what my limit will be. I DO have some things that HAVE to get done, so I need to leave enough time for those things, but not too much more. Hmm.... I guess it'll take some trial and error to figure out a good amount of time. But hopefully it'll help me like I'm hoping it will. We shall see. Let the games begin.
