In addition to these tasks, I have homework to read / review in order to gain a better understanding of one section and lab I did really poorly on. I have a book to finish reading for tomorrow as well as comments for a debate in class we are allegedly having.
When I get to work early, I plan to leave my door closed until I have the scheduling done. I’ll have it unlocked but closed in the hopes no one sees I’m in so I can focus on the task at hand. After the schedule is entered – at least the first swipe at it – I’ll register for classes and tackle my emails.
People ask me all the time how I manage to do all that I do – I schedule it. I woke up this morning with my alarm and started with I need to shower, dress, and then… it is just what I do in an effort to prepare myself for what needs to happen and hopefully not forget anything. If I outline what needs to get done then it stays in my head and I try to work on those things. Now to be honest there are a number of times that I don’t accomplish what is in my head because other things come up but I do the best I can to be organized and get things done.
I have confidence that I will accomplish what I need to – both with work, school work, and home stuff. It may not all happen today but it will happen – even if I have to put in extra time here and there.
