Time Management and My Life as a Nontraditional Student: How I Did It
What Time Savers I Draw On?
First, having been a single parent of 4 for many years I was already a home time management expert. I'm talking like 10th degree apron belt here.
Second, I had the best behaved children in the world. Now that was a lot of work all through the years but it was so worth it.
Third, my children had always had chores so everything wasn't on my shoulders.
Fourth, I had taught the kids early to cook. So, if I had to study I simply told them (well in advance) they were Chef-for-such-and-such-night and they planned what they wanted to cook including making their ingredient list and making sure we either had what was needed or the items were put on the weekly grocery list. Also, we used things like leftovers and batch cooking.
Fifth, while this may not seem a time saver at first if you'll follow my reasoning you'll see it actually is a very big one. I really got to know myself. I had to learn, and quickly, what worked for me and what didn't. What pushed me forward and what held me back. What energized me and what drained me.
However, None of These Things Were Overnight Endeavors
I'm sorry to tell you but all of these not only took work but they were processes. If you'll look up the word "process" in a thesaurus you'll see equivalent words such as: procedure, course, development, progression, method, practice, manner, and activity. In other words, something that's ongoing... as in takes years and years and years.
