When I left my 9-5 desk job to pursue a job in self employment I thought that having flexible hours and getting to work from home would give me so much time to get more accomplished. Not only with my job but I imagined myself being so organized that I would blog every day, grocery shop at Whole Foods during the week, cook (healthy and delicious) dinners nightly, pick up my dry cleaning on time, and have lunch with friends at least once or twice a week.
I was wrong.
In reality it seems that I have less time and I am constantly running out of time. I work later hours, I get to the dry cleaner after its closed, I've barely cooked this summer, my blogging has sucked, and I feel like I have zero time to see my friends for lunch or even after work because I'm usually working late. I can't figure out if I'm busier than I was at my last job or if I just have AWFUL time management skills and now that I don't have a boss looking over my shoulder I don't stay on task.
This is how I feel every night:
So tell me how do you schedule your time? Do you have a strict after work schedule? Do you have pre plan blog posts or schedule them before hand? When do you find time to work out? Do you cook every night- any quick dinner tips?
Any advice would be much appreciated!!
