One of the biggest challenges in my life is finding the time to do all the things I want to do.
I’ve have my day job with its own challenging workload, then in the evenings there’s my writing career to promote and develop.
Add to this all the other stuff to deal with that makes up your life. Family and friends to see, keeping fit (I play badminton once a week) endless amounts of cultural activities to consume. The books you want to read, films and tv show to watch, music to listen to – the list is endless.
I’m always thinking about how my writing committments compete and fit in with the rest of my life. How can I manage my time better? How can I be more productive and avoid the dreaded procrastination.
With this in mind I found this post today on Copyblogger:

Have a read and see what you think.
