Go Big or Go Bust: Day 44 (on the art of scheduling and Scarlett O'Hara)

So full disclosure ... this whole schedule thing - I'm really doing it.

Step 1  Underline any 'jobs' that have cropped up in the three-sides-of-a-page of morning free-writing. List these under a category along with anything unfinished yesterday:






Step 2   Prioritize.  (This, my sister Lee once pointed out, is the Achille's heel of getting on top of your life.)

Step 3   Make up a schedule.  (I haven't gotten up my nerve to tell my dear sister that both of my heels are Achilles heels, the second one being *a realistic sense* of how long things take.)

After 34 days, my husband is no longer annoyed with my obsession with this schedule- he's laughing out loud.  I'm generally running behind by somewhere between two and a half and six hours by mid-afternoon and showing no signs of improvement.  A Scarlet O'Hara attitude about the carry-over from day to day feels like denial but I don't know what else to do.  Suggestions??
