Next, prioritize your daily tasks by putting the most important first. I can tell you my number one priority every day are my kids. They win every time. My number two is my writing. My number three is housework. This does not mean my house is a crazy, rat-infested, disgusting place to be. I actually keep my house quite neat. What it does mean, is I make sure my kids' needs are met first. If it's my writing time, and someone had a bad dream and needs snuggles. I snuggle my baby and don't feel guilty about it because I pre-determined what was most important in my life. This also means if I have a busy day with lots of errands and it comes time to write and my laundry isn't done...I'm going to choose writing. Again, without guilt. The laundry will get done. But not until I put in my time first. Because that was what I determined was most important for me. And you know what? Once I made these priorities, and once I made writing one of my top ones, I found it actually happens. And everything else happens that needs to as well. When you make the time for those things which are most important to you, they actually get accomplished, and everything else you once thought was important but really isn't just falls away.
