Time: A Great Healer, but also a Great Consumer

As you can see from my last blog, it’s been a while since I put finger to keyboard.  Now in my profession, it’s all about scheduling tasks, prioritising, facilitating and delivering.  Yet all of these things fail when it comes to managing personal workloads.

Why is it that sometimes we stare at our inbox, see that there are a couple of unread emails, open them, then mark them as “unread”, to come back to them later….maybe it’s me and I am lazy.  But having too many “balls to juggle” (all non-work related) only ends in disaster.

You just never have enough time to do all the things that you need to do, and sadly this month blogging has been hit hard.  My mind has been so preoccupied that I haven’t even allowed segments of my brain to think of any writing material, not given myself the opportunity to jot down ideas for later, one of the golden rules of successful and consistent blogging….argh!!!

Anyway, I’ll pick things up and please look forward to some posts!!

Many Thanks to all who from time to time have dropped in and given me a nudge.

Running around like “headless chickens” and having no real notion of time in our lives, where is this all going?  Why don’t we all stop for 5 mins and take a pause….

I hope you like this as much as I did, for some reason this shred of paper has stuck around with me.  So, whoever you are, Thanks for writing this. Continue reading “Do you realise the value of time?”
