Schedules: Do you have one?

alisandeMay 2, 2006

I'm not thinking so much of the kind of schedule that tells you to clean the den on Thursday and polish the silver on the 3rd of the month. (Can you tell I never had one of those schedules?) Instead, I'm wondering about day-to-day planning that enables you to get everything done, from the most tedious chores to the most rewarding projects.

Two friends who have home-based businesses have encouraged me to make a schedule that blocks out time for working on my house, writing, paid work (at home), and other things I want to do. They say without a schedule they waste enormous amounts of time. One friend described how she would drift around the house, doing a little bit of this and a little bit of that, always distracted. She called it "fluttering." I can certainly relate, except I called it "spinning." :-)

So I'm going to give this a try. Not sure of the best method, though. Have any of you had experience you'd like to share?
