Parenthood is Making Me a Better Time Manager

I’ve been a time management fanatic for a long time now.  I need to have things scheduled, bring closure to tasks, treat others’ time like gold and expect the same of my own time.

I’m quickly finding that becoming a parent is forcing me to up my game.  Tasks or projects that might have acceptably languished for a few days now must be completed between newborn feedings (a matter of hours).  Elevating my own productivity is turning out to be one of the many joys of being a father.

When it comes to personal time, everyone had told me that I would have none at all.  That’s not entirely true.  I do have a fraction of the time I had before becoming a father, and I need to prioritize what I do during that time and manage it as carefully as I do my family/baby time.
