Time Management

Is it just me, or are there others out there that have grandiose ideas and goals for productivity for the day and they never, ever pan out? I have been trying to keep track of how long it takes to lay out, cut out, pin and sew items, for time management and pricing (but the pricing thing is a story for another day). However, I still can not quite manage to accomplish what I think I can in the time allotted.

Sometimes the kids throw a monkey wrench into the schedule, sometimes I royally screw up and have to rip out a seam and resew it....or, like the other day, an important piece of equipment (my iron) dies or is lost. Yeah, I hear everyone saying, well, if you were just more organized.....but who has time to be organized when there isn't enough time to get things done to begin with?

Anyone have any suggestions for organizing, time management, etc?

nope, sorry, I have the same problem!

Uhm. No. Sorry. You would be asking the wrong person :)

But I totally feel your pain.

I am so with you on this one! Time management begins with organization and focus, both of which I struggle immensely!

Organization - what's that? Yesterday I was taking some photos and the babe got to my pincushion. I dropped everything and ran to him. I couldn't find my camera for three hours! I finally found it in a bag of fabric - how did it ever get there?

Thursday I sewed a collar on a toddler apron. Friday I went to press the binding out for the final stitching and realized I sewed the collar on the wrong side! I had to take both seam and zigzag out of knit and terrycloth. :o(
