Scheduling Time

There are days when I think I have everything together and then realize that I'm three days behind. How does that happen? Sometimes I feel like a ditz. But here in Florida it's easy to lose track of time. The weather is great, the living is easy, and we have our senior moments.

So how does a person keep on track? I have no idea. Maybe some of my readers can come up with ideas on how to make a schedule work. Maybe a little insight into what it takes to handle changes without losing track of where a person is headed.

Here are a few website that I found that might help us all. Just click on a site below and see what they have to say. Maybe some of their suggestions will fit your way of life.

Niquenya Fulbright suggests that the easiest way is to buy a good weekly planner with time slots that fits your lifestyle. He says that to-do list are ineffective. gives some good suggestions about working at home, tracking your time, but be realistic about your schedule.

wikiHow has steps set up to help a person manage time more efficiently and effectively

Come visit these sites. See what they have to offer. Then leave a comment on how you keep your schedules straight, on time, and/or organized. I'd love to hear from you.

Gwyn, I thought you were going to tell us! As a mother of 4, I had to have some kind of schedule to get everything done. My life has gotten easier; for instance, with modern fabrics I don't have to iron on Tuesdays, but I still pretty much stick to a schedule when I'm home. Of course, I also don't have 4 kids at home anymore. Still, each day represents a certain task for me.

Telling someone how to schedule their life would be very tricky. I left a few hints on my blog so that others could make a selection. Scheduling all depends on interest, family, and job. Being a mother of 7 adult children, I am now retired, sort of. Downsizing to two makes life much easier. Everyone asked if I hit the empty nest syndrome. Nope. . .It was time for me to spread my wings and I have for the past 11 years. Having a ball and enjoying life.
