Sound familiar? The first thing to do is to determine where your time is being used up. An easy way to do that is to use a pie graph to represent your priorities. Draw a big circle and divide the circle into your time chunks. Follow the link for an example time management pie chart http://hopechoice.com.au/images/file/Time%20pie%20chart.pdf Make sure your pie graph represents all the different ways you fill you time between family, friends, work, hobbies and commitments. You just completed your “yes” pie with all the things you agree to do even if you don't want to or had planned something else.
