Managing time... or am I?

Today I heard someone say they were really busy and they listed about 3 things they were/needed to do. I had to laugh a bit. Not that anyone is interested or even cares because I am doing it to myself. But, let me just vent a bit and you can tell me how you really feel in the end.

First, I am a father of a ten year old who is Dyslexic and very, very active. Second, I am married, do I need to say more? Third, I am a fourth grade teacher with 24 ten year old children, with report cards due Friday. Fourth, I am a high school track coach with a combined team of 85 athletes, required to practice everyday and host two track meets on Saturdays. Fifth, I am working on my Doctorate in Educational Leadership, while filling out my ECP to become a principal. And on top of all of that I am creating my own online business business with my own websites and using Worldprofit to grow my list.

If you are still reading, I thank you for not falling asleep. So you would think with all of the above, I would forgo writing a blog post and focus on getting something of value completed. As I always tell my wife when she is whining about being busy. It is about priorities, although I love everything I am doing, there is one thing I lack and it is FREEDOM.

There are so many things I want to do and so many people I want to help. Having a job, even as rewarding as being a teacher/coach, is limiting. I am only able to do so much with my time and money. I am not satisfied with doing just that.

Alright, I really need to go work on something to keep my job and get a good grade in my class, but first I have to upload the results from yesterday's track meet. See you on the other side. Please feel free to add to this topic below.
