It’s a little after 10 PM now. Tomorrow and Wednesday I have the longest work days I’ve had in a while: a full day of hours for my lab job and tutoring clients in the evening. I’m excited! Paid work ahoy!
I fully admit that time management is not my strong suit. I can manage it; I just don’t really enjoy it. This week will be the biggest test in juggling two jobs that I’ve had yet, and I’d like to show myself that I can handle it. In the spirit of late-night resolutions (the best kind!), I hereby resolve that this week:
I will be showered and dressed by 10 AM every day.
I will be working on something productive—paid work, tutoring business-y stuff, or my own writing projects—by 10:30 AM.
Today was not a bad day for productivity. I spent over four hours doing work for my two jobs, but I also didn’t shower and get dressed until close to 3 PM. I’d like to be more serious on my work-at-home days by preparing for the day as though I were going off to work. I might even start packing a lunch for myself! I like the security of knowing that lunch is ready to eat whenever I’m ready for it.
For those of you who work at home regularly, do you have any tricks for keeping yourself focused and humming along?
