Making list has been one of my favorite tools to stay on track and prioritize. Not much gives me more pleasure than to cross off duties one by one and to see.

You've got the time!

The word planning and time management can call forth images of restriction and control. You might visualize a prune-faced Scrooge hunched over your shoulder, stopwatch in hand, telling you what to do every minute. Bad news
Good news: You do have enough time for the things you want to do. All it takes is learning to plan. Planning is about
time, and time is an equal opportunity resource. All of us, regardless of gender, race, creed, or national origin, have exactly the same number of hours in a week. No matter how newsworthy we are, no matter how rich or poor, we get 168 hours to spend each week---no more, no less. This is also an unusual commodity. It cannot be saved. You can't
stock pile time like wood for the stove or food for the winter. It can't be seen, felt, touched, tasted, or smelled You can't
sense time directly. Even scientists and philosophers find it hard to describe. Because time is so elusive, it is easy to ignore. That's doesn't bother time at all. Time is perfectly content to remain hidden until you are nearly out of it. And when you are out of it, you are out of it. Time is a nonrenewable resource. If you out of wood, you can chop some more.
If you're out of money, you can earn a little extra. If you're out of love, there still hope. If you you're out of health, it can be restored. But when you're out of time, that's it. When this minute is gone, it's gone. Time seem to pass at varying speeds. Sometimes it crawls and sometimes it's faster that a speeding bullet. On Friday afternoons, lunchroom clocks can creep. After you're work a 9-hour day, taking your last 15 min break its time to go back. There are moments when you are so absorbed in what you're doing that 15 minute disappear like magic. Approach time as if you are in control.
Sometimes it seems that your friends control your time, that your boss controls your time, that your teacher or yours parents or your kids or somebody else controls your time. Maybe that is not true. When you say you don't have enough time, you might really be saying that you are not spending the time you do have in the way that you should.
