How Busy Are You?

This has been one of the longest stretches of time I’ve gone without posting here.

Life has been busy. Teaching adult ESL Monday and Wednesday evenings. Exploring writing/biz projects outside of work. Weekend engagements. Evening networking. Dinners have consisted of a quick box of Pasta Roni, macaroni or soup. Or leftovers stolen from one of our parents’ houses. I have stacks of unopened mail to go through. 

I’m in the process of becoming more efficient.

The first few months of married life were amazing and luxurious because on plenty of days I could come home from work, plop on the couch and watch TV with Sajan. We spent multiple nights a week socializing and abundantly enjoying ourselves.

Now it’s back to having a fuller schedule, and I’m readjusting. 

Some key questions I started asking based on a recent presentation at work about managing priorities: 1) What task will have the most impact or visibility? 2) What task most interests me?

Lifehacker recommends looking at how important and how difficult a task is.

Can you recall the one of the busiest seasons of your life? How did you prioritize? What mistakes did you make? What lessons did you learn?
