Luck is a Myth
I just discovered that Google has a Calendar function. Imagine my happiness when I learned that I can have a calendar on my computer that tells me when I should have stuff completed by. Technology is amazing, I know.
All kidding aside, I've scheduled my next week with not only real life stuff like parent teacher interviews and eye appointments, but I've set goals for my writing and set deadlines to have other tasks, like questions for upcoming author interviews, completed. (I also have to find 6 stunning book covers for our next indie author cover art contest, so if you have any favorite's drop the links in the comments to nominate them.)
At this point, you might want to ask me why I'm rambling on about this nonsense. Well, it's simple. I want to be successful at what I do, at everything I do. And I think that proper time management is key to this. No. I know proper time management is key to this. You see, there is no such thing as luck. Luck is a myth. Luck is when preparation meets opportunity. I'm not going to miss out on my opportunities because I didn't manage my time properly and set constant goals for myself so I could be prepared.
After you read this, do me a favor. No, scratch that, do yourself a favor. Make time for your joy because no one will hand it to you. You must scrape it out of every place you can. You were not put on this planet to simply be another cog in the machine. Chase your dreams, follow your joy.
Well, that's all the time I have scheduled to write this post. (kidding)
Do you have any time management tricks you can pass along?
