How to Choose the Ideal Living Room Furniture for My New Home

If you’ve just bought a new home, you probably don’t want your old, worn-out living room furniture in there. Just like you, your living room needs a fresh start.

Most homeowners worry that buying…

Birthday Celebration Ideas - 6 Things To Do On Your Birthday

Birthdays are a very special occasion that one should bring in with innovative and unique ways that make it a memorable affair throughout your life. Although it is said that we should live each day fully, for birthday’s, you should go beyond full and live it in a…

So, I took a training on time management last Friday, and I am just now getting to post about it.  The training itself was enjoyable, and I'll tell you some of what I learned- but first - can someone please explain to me how I'm supposed to manage time that doesn't exist?

Maybe that's a bit dramatic, but it's really how I feel this week.  Too many things on my plate, all of which seem pretty important.  It stresses me out and makes me feel more disorganized than I already am.

Ok, I'm back.  The training was based on the book "The seven habits of highly effective people", which I haven't read, but I plan to now.  The trainer gave us the tools to overhaul our day to day in order to accomplish the things that are most important to us.  The first step in all of this is to figure out what your "roles" are in life.  Role #1 has to by "myself".  My list looks like this:

Myself
Mom/Wife
Employee
Businesswoman
Family Member
Friend
Blogger

Once you have figured that part out, you then have to assign goals to each of the roles.  This allows you to make goals that have meaning to you and are valuable to YOU.  I'll break one of these down as an example:

Friend - Goal 1: Improve relationships with Friends.  Goal 2: Make new friends.

Now that I know what I want to do, the next step is to create tasks that will help me reach my goal.  These should be measurable.  In this example, in order to reach my goal of making new friends, I will

1. attend a mommy meet-up through one of my on-line groups twice per month.
2. I will accept 2 invitations per month from acquaintances. 

The last step is to figure out the time commitment that each of these tasks carries, and then add them to your very detailed daily planner (which I don't really have, but I plan to get).  So here I would block out Saturday evening twice per month for accepting invitations from would-be friends.

Make Sense? I felt very confident after leaving the training that I could implement this into my life.  So far I have made some lists and I have a good understanding of what I want to be able to accomplish, unfortunately I just don't have enough time to do EVERYTHING at the same time.  I will be working on figuring out which of my roles/goals are most valuable to me currently and going from there.

Has anyone else gone through this process?  How did it work for you?
