    Since retiring time seems to slip by without realising it, making me feel busy and wondering how I found the time to go to work. Organising the day helps a great deal, it is getting the rest of the family to keep to pre-agreed times and arrangements which drives me mad!

  2. Thank you for commenting it is sometimes difficult to keep other people to stick to schedules!

  3. Planning my work and working my plan is such a timesaver for me. A day without a written plan seems to go nowhere fast.

  4. I know exactly what you mean with a day with no plan! Thanks for visiting Rose:)

  5. “Plan into your daytime to read emails, answer the phone, or deal with social media.” I hear this tip so often, but can just not abide by it! It’s very hard for me, but I need to make a change on this!

  6. It is an extremely difficult one to manage Emily! Thanks for visiting:)

  7. I think knowing our limits is SO important to managing our time. Saying NO to things is important 🙂 Stopping over from Fellowship Friday

  8. Thank you Misty for visiting:)

  9. I agree planning is SO important for managing your time effectively. I struggle with managing my own time effectively. I find with blogging I would rather work on the back end stuff than writing new content so I have to set aside time specifically for writing to make sure that important part gets done. That way I am not always finishing a new post the same day I plan to publish it.

  10. Hi Dawn thanks for visiting, I love the writing side better rather than the back end stuff myself!

  11. As a full time work from home mom #5 is the one I struggle with the most! I need to get better at passing off tasks to the rest of my team and trusting them to handle it!

  12. Organizing my time was so much easier when I worked a job outside the home because I had to be organized to get everything done. This is something I am attempting to do as I work from home. Thanks for the tips Sharon. Popping over from Equipping Godly Women.

  13. That is a hard one sometimes to manage Aimee:)

  14. Thanks for visiting Patricia and I agree working outside the home is easier for organizing your time!

  15. I really like the idea of planning into day the email/social media tip. That can be a total time suck. That Is one thing that I love and hate about the new smart phones. Thank you for linking at Snickerdoodle. Great tips!

  16. Great tips! it is so easy to get bogged down with emails and social media. So distracting! Off to get something done!

  17. Thank you so much:)

  18. You are welcome:)

  19. I love the planing part…it’s the follow through I struggle with. Great post with very useful tips.

  20. Thanks for taking the time to comment it means a lot:)

  21. Stopping by from Monday Madness. Having an end-time for tasks is critical for me! Maybe just because I’m a perfectionist. My husband and I like to argue with each other about how the saying actually goes, “Better is the enemy of good enough” (his opinion) and “Good enough is the enemy of better” (mine.) In short, I’ll keep tweaking something forever if I don’t have an end-time.

  22. Great tips! I especially love the tip to schedule in checking social media! Blogging can become pretty life consuming if you let it as I’m sure you know! Great post!

    Thanks for sharing this post over at the Ladies Collective Linkup! Sure hope you’ll be back this Wednesday to share what else you’ve been working on!
