Staying up until 3 in the morning is not the best way to manage time.

I did manage to get the house clean and post many meaningless comments elsewhere, but not everything I did was what I wanted to do. The downside to such poor management is the total lack of self discipline. I ended up very tired at work.

I ended up very tired at work, relying on venti peppermint mocha’s to get me through the day. Here, miraculously,  is where time management works. I know exactly how many documents I can review in one hour. I know how many I can do on a bad day and on a good day. I know the other projects that are on my desk waiting to be done.

I do data entry. Great place to work, great people. Not so great half asleep. But knowing how tired I am, I choose the lower quota for the day, and spend the last two hours of my work day doing projects that do not tax my brain. Yeah! Time saved, projects worked on.

Now, I have in all of this insanity of staying up until 3 in the morning, managed to complete a writing assignment, start a plot, research writing material, books, authors and what not. I have not managed in time for sleep.

I simple believe that there is not enough time in the day to do everything I want to do. But I have come to realize that time is like a void, or the vacuum effect found on California highways. If there is more than half a car length between two cars, another car automatically gets sucked in there. If there was more time, I would have more things I would want to do, and less time to do them.
