It’s been a wild few days. Bought an Apple Mac because so much of the University course I am doing is based on using it. Another change after twenty years of being a PC user. Such a sad and funny sight, me squinting over the keyboard, losing the page and my place every other minute. A metaphor for this new world I find myself in. The main focus for me is getting a handle on time management: What to do and when? My homework, helping my daughter with her HSC homework, getting my column in each week? Eating? What should take priority? Trying to read time management guru Tim Ferriss’ best seller and Blog, The 4 Hour WorkWeek but who has time??
The murderous beast
On Sunday I planned to work the whole day. My cat maimed a bird. A beautiful proud magpie crying with a broken wing, so I spent the day driving around with the bird in a blanket looking for a vet, in tears knowing the bird’s ultimate demise. Tonight I planned to work. Daughter wanted fish for dinner. Rush rush burned my hand. Sitting here wrapped in ice, typing with one hand. The sound of one hand clapping. Can someone tell me how to do this time management thing? Or as my naughty cat might ask: How do we take on more than we can chew and swallow it?
