Piles of Work (Photo credit: Laura Whitehead) After substituting in kindergarten for the third time this week, I drove home with that relieved, TGIF feeling. I love teaching, especially the freedom of being a substitute, but it makes for a busy day, often with no breaks or time to think. But the...

For a long time, I thought that I simply didn't have enough time to do the things I wanted to. After some time management work, the problem is that I'm spending a lot of time doing things that don't materially contribute toward my goals.   I spend literally an hour and a half each evening...

I spent some quality time last night analyzing all the tings I want to accomplish, then made a list of all the things I'm doing, and looked to see where there was overlap - and where there wasn't! I'm writing a number of blogs - one for programming, one fo rgeneral 'me' stuff, and 6 for various...

Over the past month, I've discovered something annoying and disastrous - I'm horrible at time management outside of work! Of great story ideas, I have plenty.  Tools? Top of the line writing software.  Simplified life? No girlfriend, no major social distractions, small place, maid service...

As a busy mom of two elementary-school children and a professional chef and party planner, I am always on the go. Between the kids' schedules and my own endless list of errands, there is very little down time. My friends and business colleagues describe me as "effortless," but the truth is, my...

  Time is the substance from which I am made. Time is a river that carries me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger that devours me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire that consumes me, but I am the fire. – Jorge Luis Borges Your life is busy. More than usual – more than ever.People...

For me today was the first day of the new work year. This is the year that I am going to learn how to corral all of my work activities into a normal length day, rather than having a long period of inactivity after seeing patients before I wade into writing coherent notes on the visits. It isn't a...

I'm in Portland, with wife, on vacation, to see sister-in-law and neice, away from work. Doesn't seem to be a vacation from writing. I don't do it for a day, it's like the dam feels the pressure of not having any gates open. I squeeze in time for writing. There's several sorts of writing. The...
