Scheduling, what me?

The very word brings me out in a cold sweat. You need a schedule! Your talking to me, nah I don’t need a schedule. I am me on me time, jam-packed to the brim with all sorts of juggling of things.

My children have never been late for school, I have only missed a couple of dentists appointments (it’s the dentist!!!) in my life so why would I need a schedule, but….

Okay so if you think your right let’s try it.  Now we have mentioned the diaries (!) but that is not quite a schedule. Most of my work time now is spent at the lap top so let’s give the Google Calendar a shot!!! You know, if you really think I need a schedule!

Monday, day one of the google calendar. London between 10-11a.m and again between 2-3p.m. Whilst getting excited that I was actually missing something fab that just happened to be happening 6 hours away from my home, was quite frankly pointless. I mean what had I actually scheduled between this time is quite frankly a mystery. Yes I confess I need to schedule in some time for working this whole thing out. Erica from Ace Inspire mentioned you could schedule time out in pretty colours. That is the only reason I really went there!

Via the Handmade Horizons course which I was so luckily to have won the scholarship place for #happy, there was a resources link for the ‘Time Machine’. It is in fact about making time or quite frankly learning not to waste it or at least learning where you do actually lose it!!! Here is the fab link to, The Square Peg Blog check it out if you want to find some time.

I also have to confess I have actually ordered a book about organising and you know getting more well organised really. Yep it isn’t me but look I sometimes get dizzy chasing my tail, and a few people think I am dizzy enough!!!

So watch this space, while the new, organised and scheduled me emerges but top tip don’t hold your breath! ;-)

    I need to organise all the things I’ve got to help me organise my life!! It’s probably time that I need the most! ;)

      I am with you on organisation of my organising things, how can that be? I think you born organised or your not, obviously I am not but I am determined to be a little bit!!! :-) Get on that time machine, 60 days is so far the record to be got back!!! x

    Tell me about it! I have so many ideas about things I want to do just organising my thoughts is hard enough let alone organising to do any of them!!

      Someone after my own heart :-) I keep telling myself it’s being creative though creating what I am not quite sure :-) Thanks for your comment.

    I keep wanting to be more organised to fit more in, but never get organised enough to get there! Good luck and let me know what works, maybe I can adopt it then!

    1. Ali says:

      Of course I will schedule you in to be the first to know! :-) Believe me if I crack it I will be writing my own book about it #dreams x

    Hi there – this sounds like an exciting adventure. I hope the book you bought was Time Management for Manic Mums by Alison Mitchell.
    I bought it after the Little Chap was born when I really needed to get my organised mojo back. It worked. I really can’t live without the bring forward system they recommend for tackling paperwork. Even if I haven’t actioned said piece of paper yet, I know that it will be in one of only a few places. All I need to do now is remember to use my diary EVERY day (!) and also to get the DH on board – LOL!!!
    Good luck with the scheduling and organising. I’m sure you’ll be fab – just look at how organised your blog is!

      Another book to add to my list :-) Yes my favourite trick is to lose paperwork but so far so good this year I think I am getting better(positive thinking and all that jazz!!). I think I have wordpress to thank for my organised looking blog but lovely comment x :-)

  5. I used to be super organised at work. I have found it doesn’t work for me at home. I just get stressed when chaos takes over. You can not control everything and I have learned to go with the flow a little more, it makes me a better person to be around

      I can totally say I have never been super organised and am quite sure I never will be. Going with the flow I am a big fan of but sometimes life at the moment seems to be one long white water raft race! :-) But I agree being less organised makes a more relaxed person though some people are only relaxed when organised, of course that isn’t me!!!
