On Time Management and Discipline
If I really want to turn my dreams into reality, I need to be a master on time management and discipline. I need to put on extra effort and get more willpower to act on the plans that I have in mind.
Being a stay-at-home mom to a spirited toddler and having no helper at all (it was a conscious decision), I need to find time for writing, studying, research and marketing. How on earth can I do work stuff alongside my chores and mommy and wifey duties? I must confess that I was overwhelmed at first with crying and self-pity episodes to boot. I talked to my husband about it so it would be the two of us who would assess the situation. You see, it helps a lot when you let your spouse know how you feel about things. You get to see a problem from another perspective. I have also found inspiration from the other mommy bloggers that I follow. I have discovered that most of them would either work on their laptop late at night or very early in the morning. I have tried the former and was dizzy the following day. I tried the latter, writing at around 5am and it worked for me. My only problem is consistency. I have yet to wake up that early on a daily basis. This is where I need discipline to be my friend.
I know I can achieve more if I try harder. With time management, discipline and constant praying, I can be who I want to be. Allow me to share with you my favorite motivational Bible verse:
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. – Philippians 4:13 (NKJV)
Let’s all aim for the best!
