Absence makes the...

Okay, so I've been busy, hence my absence.

First of all, to finish off the title: Absence makes the...

  • heart grow fonder

  • reader wishing for more

  • regular check in to see if you've been active

  • casual observer forget about you quickly

  • all of the above or

  • none of the above

  • others...

In any case, my absence from this page is due to 2 things that I can name off the bat:

  1. I cannot access the page when I am behind my primary clients' firewall and

  2. I've got a lot on my plate.

Let's talk about the second, only. I recently read a 'gift blog' written by a close friend of mine She spoke about not being able to say 'no' with regard to her volunteer activities. This is a syndrome from which I suffer too. My advice to anyone suffering from not enough time on their hands is to create a time budget. Take the number of hours we all have in one week (168 hours) and subtract out the all the things you know you do each week (work, commuting time, dining, bathroom time, sleep, etc.). At the end of this analysis you should find the extra time you need to do those things you don't have time to do. Now use them wisely.
