Balancing act


I have so many items I want to do have to do, or whatever. How is one to balance all the activities one needs, or wants to do when there are only so many hours in a day?

I work full-time (I have decided to retire early, so I only have less than four years to work), I am learning French, and I need to return to writing my second book but how to balance these activities bin the allotted time of a given day? It’s tricky because I get “Dory,” or “squirrelled” (forgetful or distracted).

I read on the bus (sometimes I write on the bus). If I read, then I get into the book, and I must I find that I must finish it, so then I end up wasting more of my precious time on reading that everything else gets pushed aside.

I have many items I wish to complete, but I spend my time writing for my blog. I haven’t really figured out a way to accomplish all I wish to complete. Instead, I procrastinate. I spend hours surfing the net: Facebook, YouTube, and news sites. God, I am pathetic. I should just concentrate on that which I would have something to show for all the time and energy I put into it, but I don’t.

When I finally do concentrate on what I wish to do, I still have difficulty balancing all the stuff I wish to accomplish.

Sometimes, I feel like a struggling juggler.
