I used to be great at time management. I was able to crank out incredible amounts of work in short periods of time. I could do 5 things at once and do them well. I kept multiple plates spinning, all my balls in the air and had time to spare. When I had a full time job, hobbies, friends, a house, a husband and a life somehow I managed it all and never felt overwhelmed.
These days? I am completely and totally ineffective at everything it seems. I have multiple customer website projects going and they are all behind schedule. I can barely drag myself out to sell the ads for my part time contract job. My desk is a mess, my house is a mess, I feel overwhelmed that I can't possibly do it all.
What has changed? Theoretically I should have no trouble getting all of this done in the time I have available and yet sometimes whole days go by when I accomplish nothing.
Take today for example. It's 9:15am and I'm in PJ's still and have done nothing productive. I have 2 websites to work on and a whole slew of ad's to call about or actually go visit customers. I could clean my house, mow the yard one last time, do laundry, do dishes. What am I doing? Writing a blog, surfing facebook, and watching old episodes of FRINGE on netflix and telling myself I'll get to the other stuff later.
I have lost my motivation which makes my time management skills suck royally. Maybe I'm depressed? Or maybe I'm just lazy.
