The Best Laid Plans...

Life does have a way of interefering with all the things a person wants to do, doesn't it?  This year, I've been deliberately focusing on what I want to do.  Unfortunately, no one else seems to be sharing my passion.

Time management has always been one of my strengths.  And the key part of the previous sentence is its tense:  some version of the past.

So, realizing I need to work on self-improvement in this area, I took a hiatus from my Author Exchange Blog, arranged stuff at my day jobs (I own two businesses) to help me meet my goal (which included a move of location and some rebuilding to include an on-site conference room to save me lots of travel time), and am in the process of getting down and dirty with my schedule to accommodate the time my bank book requires me to attend to my businesses and commercial writing and the time my heart requires me to spend on my fiction.

Your positive thoughts and prayers are most welcome.


  1. You know you've got my good wishes, Linda, but I'm going to say something obvious, too. It's a self-evident bit of advice I gave myself many years ago. It led to me changing jobs 3 times, each one involving a drop in salary, but it was absolutely the right thing to do. As I said, the advice was simple and self-evident - it was just this: remember that time is worth far more than money. Bon courage.

  2. Thanks for the reminder, Bill. I'm following your good advice!
