I learned, almost a little to late, that it takes time to be successful. Sometimes it feels I need more time than I have. With my new revelation I've begun managing my time better and believe me, it's a conscious effort. It's worth it.Time management is a skill that's needed to be successful.
I used to blame my lack of productivity on "not having enough time." But I've figured out it's the things I do with my time. Like, when I'm watching T.V.? Which I do a lot. How about dreaming of the future? Instead of trying to build it. Wasting time used to be a hobby of mine.
I've tried to keep a schedule for managing my time but that hasn't worked for me. So I've taken a different approach. There's no reason to play into my weaknesses, right? I instead, have began to take the time I have and use it productively. For example, I'm at the laundromat writing this but I started it at work on my down time. I also posted a poem on Twitter during my lunch break and one while waiting for the coffee to brew. The coffee is to get me through the laundry mat.
I have seen a difference in not only my progress but also in my self-confidence. Improving myself brings a sense of ability. The ability to move forward. Everyday is a new day to succeed at something.
I'm not sure what success will be like and I know it's gonna be a long hard road getting there. And that's OK because, if it's hard then it's probably worth it.
You see the task at hand but the steps to get there you don't understand. You play it off, pretend to know the way. Deep down though you know to stay, to watch and learn. But you refuse to get out of the way. You stumble, crumble to the ground when your lack of knowledge is found. You realize you are not qualified to lead. It's time to sit down, watch and learn.
“Got to follow before you can lead”
It happens to all of us. Tired of your child making a fuss. Taking more than you can handle you resort to anger as your channel to sanity. This takes from the opportunity to bond. Leaving your good parenting feeling like a con. Time passes anyway so you might as well enjoy. A bond brings nothing but joy.
“Enjoy watching your children.”
