Time Management-Fact or Fiction

I think it's safe to say most of us have time management problems. I know I'm always cramming things in here and there, last minute, frenetic and crazy, with no rhyme or reason. I have so much to do I never have time to figure out a schedule and I always feel like I'm behind.

The questions was raised how to do you keep up with your blog posting, networks, flickr and etsy shops without running yourself ragged? I put my networking sites, blog site, both etsy shops and anything else that I need to do daily (or as often as possible) at the top of my favorites list. I don't get to everything every day, but at least it's all in one place, like a check list.

I'd love to have a schedule of what to do when, but I must admit juggling the kids and their activities, creating and sewing, housework, yardwork and other activities, I tend to just toss all the balls in the air, grab a laundry basket to catch them in, close my eyes and hope for the best. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

Am I the only one like this? Are there any of you out there rushing around getting everything half done, so that at the end of the day nothing is completed, you are frazzled and your house is more of a mes than when you started? Please share!

:P I am living just like that, trying to do everything all the time, but nothing get completed! I think what I have to try is focus to finish one thing at a time, but I always get distracted! aaawwww

I have learned that I will never get everything on my "list" done ~ I just try to get the important stuff done. Since I have had my son, vacuuming is not as important!

Ah, the life of a busy mom! I prioritize the top things that I *must* get done by dawn and focus on completing those things. Anything else that gets done is just a lovely bonus to the day :)
