Time Management and Procrastination

When Google does something they usually do it very well. Sometime within the last week I tried out Google Maps. My first thought was “oh great, another map thing”, but after using it for a few seconds I became extremely impressed. I played around with it for a long time. I love the real time map dragging. I was able to “drive” to a friend’s house just by dragging. So cool. Check it out if you haven’t already.

So why did I take so long to post about this? The normal excuse of course! I’ve been too busy. Seriously though, between working three jobs, swing dancing, and procrastination I’ve managed to become way too busy. I recently bought Time Management from the Inside Out by Julie Morgenstern (audio download) from amazon.com/audible. I never would have read the book had I just ordered a real copy. I’ve already listened to it 1 12 times with it on CD. I drive way too much. I’ve spent over $80 in gas so far this month, and the month isn’t even half over! Anyway, I’ve really been enjoying the book. The problem with listening while driving though is that it’s very hard to write notes, so I don’t. I’ll probably listen to it over and over again until it sticks, or until I get a new book to listen to. I really like books on tape/cd.

Anyway, I hope to be able to take control of my time and have time for all the important things I need to get done! If anyone actually reads what I write here, what do you do? What have you done to take control of your time? Please comment.
