Time passes quickly – End of the Day for June 30, 2014

End of the day Logo

It seems nearly impossible that it can be the end of June already. For many reason, this year is flying by. I know, as you get older, the years seem to get shorter, but this year is feeling ridiculously short. We’re only 1 ½ months away from the beginning of the next school year, Joseph is taking his Driver’s Ed training and will soon go for his drivers permit test and I have several projects that seemed months away that are rapidly rushing down up upon me.

I have 3 speaking engagements I am preparing for right now and a career book that needs to be edited. I want to release it on the anniversary of my Career Opportunities column, but I have about 50,000 words to edit and formatting to do before then. Tempus fugit, as the saying goes, time passes. To this I will add Time Passes Quickly. Yikes!

Luckily I have finished up a large project and sent my deliverables, so that is off my plate at least for the moment. I was fairly picky about quality control on this one, so I am hoping for few to no changes on the final project. This will open up some time for these upcoming projects. I also been focusing much more on blogging and podcasting and these can take up an inordinate amount of time on occasion. You don’t realize how much time is required for editing and rendering until you start producing, 2x, 3x or 4x the content. The growth in time requirements doesn’t seem linear but rather exponential. To shows don’t just take twice as much time, but more quadruple the time.

Time, time, time. It’s all about the time and the limited amount we have. I was never one to pull all nighters in college, but there are evenings when I find it difficult to go to bed, as there is still so much to. Of course, that is horribly unhealthy and will only make problems worse, but the thoughts still sits at the back of my mind. I just need a few more hours. Really! Just a few more. (LAUGH)

That said, I need to get to sleep so I can rise earlier and gain a few more waking — and working — hours tomorrow. So much to do and so little time — or does it just feel that way?
