Scheduling Time

Today's challenge from 31 Days to Clean was to create a schedule to make better use of our time. I am definitely one of those people who loves to plan, but has trouble sticking to that plan; therefore, I have made my schedule very flexible, left plenty of open space. I have in bold the activity which is the most important to complete during each block of time. I'm going to do my very best to stick to this schedule all week, even if it feels a little unnatural at first, and then at the end of the week, I'll re-evaluate and shift whatever needs to be changed. Thanks for the encouragement and ideas Sarah Mae!

  1. hi, visiting and browsing your notes here... i like the rule of the clock :-)

  2. That's a great schedule Katy Lin! What do you do for work?

  3. Wow - Every time I visit I just LOVE the wisdom you have. I am sorry I've not collected my award but I usually do "drive by" visits to blogs and don't really have a place I go often. In fact just getting an up-date on mine is an act of God:)
    I've just done a schedule for me and my girls and thought of posting it. Maybe if the world can see it I will stick with it.
    Keep rising early to meet with God - it will be the best apt. of your day especially if you have a nest full of peeps one day!

  4. Looks good to me! I actually did my schedule a couple weeks ago. I guess I was ahead of the game!

  5. I love your blog Katy Lin :)Thanks for leaving me such a sweet comment. Take care.Lisa~

  6. Will have to head over to Sarah Mae and see what today's challenge is... since I am so far behind in the 31 days to clean.

    Love your schedule - especially like the idea of blocking activities then putting in bold the most important one for that space of time. I'll be stealing that idea if that's ok - will be useful.

    I love schedules and anything orderly/organised (it runs in my blood) and am always looking for a bigger calander every year with bigger squares for writing things

    In my previous life as a 'career woman' I had my big diary for organising my life, but since having kids I find that a calender works much better... just not as much room for scribbling tasks though - pity.

    sorry for the essay response... I'll go now...

  7. I like your schedule. As I told Sarah, I am great at making the schedule but not so good at following it. All of you are inspiring me to get my tooty tot in gear.


Always great to hear from you! I ALWAYS read your comments, and they make my day!

Thank you!
