…the Organic Solar Cell course on Coursera.
It takes up far too much time to get things done, and it’s not particularly interesting to me at this time. I have 3 courses ending soon, and a couple others that I am very interested in that I’m falling behind in. I need to cut what I’m not prepared to work on.
There are a lot of things going on these days. I have the writing challenge (#3 is ending in less than 3 hours!), my own writing, 5 online courses, work, family, reading, and blogging. I also have a vlog which I have barely started, and need to figure out how I can get the time to do it and in a place where I won’t get interrupted.
Sometimes I give myself too much to do. I think I need to simplify. What I need to do is this:
- Limit myself to only 3 online courses at a time, preferably 2.
- Write for at least 30 minutes a day (flash fiction, my book, short stories).
- Read on the train, during my breaks, and for at least 30 minutes at home.
- 1 or 2 blog posts per day.
- 1 or 2 videos a week.
Achievable? I hope. Since I have 3 courses ending soon, I’ll be down to 2 courses, but another one starts at the end of this month. Then 2 end and another starts, so that leaves me with 2 courses for much of summer. I need to sort out which courses to drop that start in September and October. I’d prefer to keep the courses related to science and history.
And I need to clean up. My daughter makes a mess every day. Need more organisation at home. It’s quite difficult with so much clutter and a small apartment. In 2 years, we’ll be moving to Canada, where we should have a lot more space, and hopefully I can have that office/studio I’ve been wanting.
So, how busy are you?
