Angie here: Have you ever wondered how all the balls were going to stay in the air while you juggled underneath them? Sometimes I'd rather stick my head in a bag and let them all drop.
|Sometimes sticking your head in a bag seems better than dealing with reality. But really, there's some better options even if #Muse would rather play with the bag.|
With articles, events, books, coaching, family...you get the picture. I'm sure you have quite the list too. So how does it work?
It takes a bit of trial and error to find the perfect fit for your lifestyle. But calendar options for juggling time management is a great way to get mentally free of the juggling stress.
For mine, I work off of a series of calendars and lists. My favorite tools are Google calendars (coaching schedule, family, and appearances), a large desk calendar for client projects (edits, virtual assisting, and specialty appointments), and my day timer (personal appointments, notes, and medical/other). I do also create a working to-do list for most daily work or things I have to remember.
Why so many calendar options?The Google calendars are accessed by completely different people.
The large desk calendar keeps the variety and volume of projects managed with notes and billing cycles.
The day timer manages private appointments I don't want accessed by others or hanging on a wall. I do include a back up of work, coaching, and appearances in case online access is unavailable.
So these are a few of my time management and project management tools. It works for me. What are some of your tools and ideas?
