Jann: Well, Barb, how are you doing in Kittyâ€™s on-line Time Management class?
Barb: Not so well. Canâ€™t seem to find the time to get assignments done.
Jann: I know what you mean. I did my first two assignments and posted every day what I loved about my writing, then fell off the wagon on Sunday.
Barb: Weâ€™ll get back on track. Whatâ€™ll help is when we get down to the nitty gritty and mark up our calendars.
Jann: Calendars? Last night I counted five: my Smart Phone, my Franklin, my day planner, my pocket planner and the cutest Mary Engelbreit calendar, if I could only find it. I want to settle on only one because itâ€™s driving me crazy. I might miss a hair appointment if Iâ€™m not careful.
Barb: And we canâ€™t have that. Iâ€™m afraid after I fill out the calendar or calendars with all my appointments, working full time, yada yada, there wonâ€™t be enough time to write.
Jann: Thatâ€™s what weâ€™re taking this class for, Barb. Where are your priorities? Is writing even among them?
Barb: Okay, mom. I am getting some writing done, but thereâ€™s only so many quality pages one can do in the bathtub.
Jann: Thanks for that picture. Seriously, itâ€™s all in how you figure out your goals and prioritize them. Youâ€™ve got to take a hard look, decide what you really want.
Barb: Well, baths take a long time. I could cut them out, but showers will get my paper wet. Yeah, yeah, I know. Iâ€™m following the class. Iâ€™m working on Lecture Four.
Jann: Hate to tell you, but Kitty has just posted Lecture Five.
