So how the heck do people manage it? I'm the queen of meticulous planning when it comes to trips away or events, but when it comes to planning and organising my day-to-day life, I find I'm falling short so often. I'm not drawing as much as I'd like to be, I'm not blogging as much as I'd like to be. Dreams of making Youtube videos, practising my accordion more, or actually maintaining a healthy balance of, well, anything, seem very fleeting! I've had my hours increased at dad's cafe as I cover for a girl on maternity leave, and while I'm finally able to chip away at the credit card I've very much 'enjoyed' over the past few years, I'm finding it very hard to balance my creative pursuits around the extra work. Of course, the first thing to suffer is my blog. Sorry guys!
I bought this lovely big planner from Paperchase, which unfortunately is far too large to use as a portable diary, so I'm going to use it as a personal planner for projects, plans and creative pursuits. I think actually listing out everything I want to do and setting myself a bunch of mini deadlines is the best plan of action, for me.
What about you guys? How do you stay on top of everything when you've got a billion different things you want to do?
