A Change In Schedule Seems To Be Called For

Here’s the haps:

It seems to me that there are not enough hours in a day to get everything done that I want to get done. But we all get the same 1,440 minutes in a day which has been compared, by poets and sages, to different forms of money that we have in our account. It’s all in how we spend them. My time is often divided by things I have to do versus things I want to do along with things that are needful. Very few people, especially responsible ones, have complete control over their time. I feel blessed that I have a fairly balanced set of things I want to do and have to do but there just isn’t enough time.

Or is there?

I think what I will have to work on is changing when I go to bed and when I get up. It seems like it might be more productive if I am, as the saying, attributed to Ben Franklin (but actually he only quoted it in his almanac from earlier, similar sayings), “Early to bed, early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise.” This used to be my habit but I have never gotten wealthy. I’ve often been accused (sometimes justly so) of being a wise guy. I didn’t feel any healthier then or now, just about the same. But I think it will change how productive I am. We’ll see. I don’t think it will affect you guys a whole lot except that I may get to spend more time visiting on your blogs, which will be nice. I’ll try to keep you all informed of my progress.


  1. Our cat doesn’t let us stay up late. My wife and I shower at 8:00-8:30 in bed by 9 (although sometimes I don’t fall asleep till 10) but I am up every weekday morning at 5:50 and leave the house by 7:00 (takes about 20 minutes to get to work) I use my early morning wake ups to play catch-up on other people’s blogs,eat a hearty breakfast and wake up.

  2. I don’t know about Ben but I have an uncle who just retired. He does very little that he wants to do and wonders how he ever had time to go to work with all the errands and repairs he has to do
