Time Management

I write many tips and thoughts on effective time management.

Managing our time is important because time is the stuff that makes up our lives. We can never get time back after it’s used. It took me years to learn how to manage my time better so that I have time for what matters most to me.

My posts about time management are not only for those running a business from home, or working professionally. I also write for moms who are chasing little ones all day. These time management tips are written for busy moms of all sorts.

Time Management to Make Time for What Matters Most

I want to help you have time for what matters most to you.

In these posts, I also share my favorite time managing tips for using apps and programs across different platforms. Whether you’re on a mobile phone, tablet, and desktop computer, I prefer apps that keep me synced. In particular, I write about using apps like Evernote, Google Calendar, Google Keep, and Google Drive Apps.

Reader Q: Where to Draw the Line

A reader asked me, Your post on “saying no” hit home for me. I don’t handle saying no well. I say yes and then regret it. I feel like a jerk if I say no too many times to people or events. Then I burn out quickly if I have too much going on. I’ve […]

In Praise of Down Time: Don’t Feel Guilty for Resting
