Makers Refresh & Fixing Time Leaks
To the Point, A just-in-time newsletter published by Lisa Kellogg
How Do You Fix a Time Leak?Do you ever feel like your clock has a leak?
If you're ready to unwind that twister, try logging your time.
You may be saying, "How could I possible do something so picayune? I'm already overwhelmed!"
I said as much, when first presented with this tool. Then, I tried it and to my surprise and relief, it was quite helpful.
I have discovered where I was wasting time without realizing it (then you can do something about it). Also, where I wasn't giving myself credit for certain important but unglamorous tasks.
This winter during a spell where I was feeling derailed, I found it helpful to use a computer calendar instead of a notebook. I had one already for scheduling ahead and created one in another color, just for logging. Comparing the two was insightful and I now have a logging calendar which I can use as needed.
Working for myself, out of my home with many business and creative ideas in the works, boundaries get blurred and effective use of my time can be challenging. Using this tool periodically, helps me fine tune my daily rhythm, keep my focus, and shift a drab mood when I feel like I've gotten little done. It's a relieving check on ones inner critic, as well as, a revealing way to evaluate and make changes with what you are doing in order to be more effective.
May you have surprising and fruitful discoveries as you experiment with it.
