The Trouble with (My) Time Management

I have missed my blog in the last week that I have been absent from it and it was not my intention to not post anything for that length of time but I know that my problem is my many issues with managing my time.  As I told you guys before I recently started my Masters program in Psychology so I have been trying to adjust my time to fit my school work in which makes it harder to find the time to write the way I want.  

However, that is not a good enough reason for the lack of writing on my part lately because this is my dream and my passion and I know that if I want it bad enough (and I do) then I need to put in the work and the time to get it done without all of the excuses.  

In a previous post I said that a writer must show up everyday, even when they do not necessarily feel the inspiration to write.  Especially those writers that consider writing their business and career as well as their passion.  I had intended to practice that but you know what they say about good intentions.  

And just as I start to feel so guilty about not writing as consistently as I had planned to and I start using even my lack of writing as an excuse of why I feel too depressed to write, I start to think that I can’t be the only writer who has time management issues when it comes to trying to fit the whole world into the small window of 24 hours.  

Well if any of my fellow writers out there have figured out the secret to managing their time and maintaining a decent level of productivity please clue me in on it because I am seriously losing the battle of managing my time over here.

  1. I don’t think there’s a secret to solving that problem. Sure, you can have some kind of day planner to help you with that, but then that’s not motivation enough.

    That really is it, though. You have to force yourself to write, even during the times you feel down, depressed, hungry, sleepy or tired. You’re supposed to write even when you don’t feel like it! Imposing yourself over your laziness, depression and other troubles like that is the best way to tame them.
