Time Management?

I indicated when I began this blog that I would try to write every week or so. The next thing I know I looked around and it was well over two months later! Now that could mean that I haven't had any thoughts in that length of time. But that's not really true. What is true is that I just haven't taken the time to write them down. I apologize for not laying them out there as regularly as I'd hoped. I'll try to do better. That's what I always say to myself (or my wife) when I haven't been doing too well at managing my time in getting certain things done according to my intention. This business of time management has always been (and alas, probably always will be) a challenge and at times a struggle for me.

There sure has been a lot going on I've been reflecting on lately - election of a new president (the first African-American, at that), what seems to be a cascading financial crisis/meltdown/depression/catastrophe (descriptive term used depends on which pundit you happen to be quoting), and just my usual hectic fall schedule. Actually fall is my favorite time of the year in many respects. I love the weather (when we actually HAVE fall weather). I like a lot of the holiday activities. And October contains my birthday (actually I need to write a whole entry on that particular subject, since on this last birthday, I turned 50!). I will endeavor to try to write about some of these things in the next few weeks. Meanwhile, I will continue trying to manage my time, rather than have time manage me!
