Scaling my tasks

Since I often try to get way more done in a short period of time that is even possible, I am really working on scaling my tasks to the time I have available.

This morning I had a big plan for my day of all kinds of things I was going to get done, and when I looked at it, I realized I had a lot of errands on there. They were all over the place. And I was planning to do some in the morning and some after lunch.

That would mean my whole day would feel frazzled and hectic, and I don’t want to feel that way.

So instead, I crossed a few things off my list and then I looked at how much time I had in the afternoon and planned errands for that amount of time.

For some people, this might not be a big deal, it might be ordinary planning, but for me, this is huge.

My brain hasn’t often let me do this, it won’t do this kind of work in advance because it feels like a waste of time.

Today, though my brain felt cooperative, and I think it will be rewarded for its efforts.
