Does it ever feel like time is speeding up? I definitely feel that at times the hours, days, weeks are SPEEDING by...

When I get to feeling like this I remind myself: I control my schedule! Me, not someone else (granted I don’t have little kiddos at home)...

I’m losing track of dates and times. I have a progressive degenerative brain disease that affects my personality band executive functioning, so for me it’s my disease.

Hello Lizard Man! Thank you for sharing. Sounds like you are having to adapt to new ways of working. Sounds challenging.

The best habit I use for me to feel in control of my schedule is my weekly meeting with myself. I have it planned on my calendar, I get a notification that says “Plan Next Week!” And so I do. I plan as well as I can what’s coming up for the next 7 days. Does it always go according to plan? Nope, it does not...but at least I have an understanding of what’s due, what is going to take some attention, and what fun events I have to look forward to.

And every once in a while I ignore my Plan Next Week message, and boy oh boy, my week does not feel as well executed as it could be. I have made my weekly planning a personal commitment to my future self. I want to help her (um, me) accomplish her goals and live with less stress, so the planning is key!

Here’s another planning habit that helps me a lot: when there is an event or project that has a very specific deadline and there will be multiple parts to fulfill the assignment I create more than 1 reminder on my calendar. I set up a reminder 1 month, 1 week, and 1 day before the due date. The 1 day before I put in BOLD RED to really get my attention.

I’m a gal who loves tech but also loves old school paper and pencils and a paper calendar. I literally use both simultaneously. Everything going in my electronic Google calendar and then I transfer the info each week onto my paper calendar during my Plan Next Week appointment. That really helps me to see the relations between different projects and goals.

I hope you borrow some of these habits for yourself. Remember, it’s not about being perfect all the time. It’s about getting better and better at arranging your schedule and project processions.

I hear ya...years ago I had to give up being a roller derby ref for the same reasons. It was SO hard the first season I wasn’t skating. One of the reasons I work so diligently in my field is so that I don’t feel like I’ve given up something (skating) for no good reason. We make changes when we have to Jeremy. It’s part of maturing.
