Pretend You Had the Time…

If you had time—the time to write your book, the time to work on a proposal for a new book, the time to promote the book you just published, the time to go to events and the time to sleep enough hours a night, the time to tackle the laundry pile, time to clean and time to focus, time to make sure you don’t ruin your relationship with the one you love, time to be productive, time to work harder than you’ve ever worked to prove you’re worth it… if you had that time, how would you keep yourself organized?

With all the time in the world I’m realizing there are more and more ways to waste it.

I have a lot to do. The most important deadline of my life is looming—and when I have the time to face it I want to be ready.

I could make a list. But I have a way of writing lists in random places, then losing the list and starting a new list somewhere else.

I’ve tried making lists on my computer—then I forget I made them.

I’ve tried reminders in my online calendar—I ignore them.

Should I plan out each day like a school schedule? Should I save certain days for certain things? Should I wing it and hope for the best?

So… pretend you have the gift of time. How do you make the best use of it?
