At the end of the day if you feel as if you could have accomplished much more, and find that chores keep piling up, it is time to take a look at your daily schedule. This way you can tell if you were spending too much time on one thing, and ignoring another.
Write down everything you do in a day and how long it takes you to do it.
Start with the time right after you wake up. Figure out how long you stay in the shower. If it takes you too long, then try to understand how you can shorten it. Do the same for each chore and each thing you do. Note the time you started , and the time you finished.
How long does it take you to get to work or school? How much time do you spend in front of the television, clean the kitchen, or make lunch for the children?
Look at the list, at the end of the week, and see if you have done all you needed to do, or if you wasted too much time doing them, or had no time to do more important chores.
Make any changes necessary to accomplish more, or realize that perhaps you just were doing too much.
Prioritize or categorize what you need to accomplish or want to accomplish. Try to change one thing at a time and not everything. Maybe start with items that will be easier for you, like watching half hour or an hour less of television each day.
As you keep making the smaller changes, it will become easier to add more or fit what you really want to do in a day.
Don't try to do everything all at once; it takes practice to get into a habit of following a schedule
As you improve on small things or easier stuff, it will encourage you to make bigger changes
Unexpected things are part of life, sometimes you are just not able to do what you want to do so go with the flow on those occasions
Strive to do as few things as possible and choose them based on impact, not (perceived) urgency
In this process, don't get entangled with lists and prioritizing. Try to go with what you desire, but also keep others (family and friends) in mind.
