When we're short on time, we don't have time to waste.
We can't spend time on things that don't really require our attention, and some things just need to be pushed aside so we can start reaching our goals.
What is it that you want to achieve? How can you make sure that you're giving yourself some time, whether 10 minutes or 4 hours, to work on those things that you enjoy? What is most important to you and how can you prioritize your tasks so that the things you care about are getting done? So, how do you get started managing your time better and figuring out your schedule? It's all about getting your tasks coordinated in a manageable schedule.
For some people, creating a manageable schedule that also supports their goals can be tricky.
I have found that trial and error works the best for me.
My schedule is constantly changing, mainly because I manage a free range egg farm with 500 hens and there are a lot of variables that affect the "farm schedule".
The good news is that you don't have to get it all figured out right away; that's the beauty of trial and error.
Your schedule can evolve as you learn what works for you.
So, when figuring out your own schedule, develop one and see how it goes.
Make adjustments as you go.
What time of day works best to write? When are you most productive and focused? If something isn't working for you, change it.
You're not married to your schedule; it's not written in stone.
Decide what you think will work best and how much time you can spend on writing, researching, and revising.
Also, set aside time to connect with other writers and readers on social media.
Now is the time to start building your writer's platform and developing relationships with others who share similar writing and reading interests.
Try out your new schedule for a week and see how it goes.
Keep in mind that doing something new will be difficult and strange at first, but once you have developed a habit with your schedule, it will get easier.
You'll see it as part of your routine rather than another chore that needs your attention.
