Time Management

The following is an exercise to expand your awareness of how you spend your time now and how you might spend your time to have more balance in the activities you are currently doing or would like to do. There is also a planning sheet to record target dates for certain goals you have in mind, so progress can be recorded. It also allows for deciding how often and how much time you will set aside time to work on these goals. The planning sheet is just an example of something that can be used to keep you focused and aware of target dates. I encourage you to design your own in format that will work even better for you. There are various time management planners available in stationary and bookstores to purchase and use, or get ideas from to design your own unique system.
