Join the club! It’s so easy to think you have time for everything, but you really do have to prioritise! I doubt your time management skills are crappy, or at least not crappier than most of us. We tend to delude ourselves that there’s enough time to fit it all in, when there really isn’t. Then you end up doing everything a bit worse than you want to.
One of my problems is that I feel guilty when I can’t do it all. Like right now, I’m not doing photography (one of my hobbies) much at all because I haven’t prioritised it. Every time I see my camera bag, I feel guilty. Made worse because I just recently sold a photograph, which brings my lifetime total to a whopping two! But I’ve got too much going on right now to focus (haha) on photography.
So, I’m spending a load of time on trading (learning, that is) and making sure I have time for my work-from-home job, looking after house, garden, husband and cat, and piano practice. And sleep. I like my sleep. And playing nethack, yep, and I’m on the team designing a tournament for November. And quiz team once per week. I think that’s about it. Oh, and exercise (not doing too well on that one at the moment.)
But aside from that, not busy at all, why am I not heading out with my camera every day?
Nope, I don’t think you’re crappy at time management. Time is just a right royal pain in the neck for everyone.
