Dale Carnegie Training

This morning I went to Dale Carnegie Training in Time Management in Bellevue. I am always trying to learn and work hard to do better to forward my goals. After listening, this is the schedule I wrote for myself. The important part to finish every day is the writing. If I have a great Zumba class to go to at 9:30 then I will bump my reading to later in the day when I am done but this is my idea of how to balance my goals of working on my writing, learning Zumba choreography, and doing necessary writing about writing craft and reading for AFAA. I figured out a schedule of working 50 minute hours balanced by a 10 minute chore or 3 Zumba songs so that I am not sitting for three hours straight.

5:00 to 5:50 a.m. write
5:50 to 6:00 a.m. chore
6:00 to 6:50 a.m. write
6:50 to 7:00 a.m. chore
7:00 to 7:50 a.m. write
7:50 to 8:00 a.m. chore
8:00 to 8:50 a.m. write
8:50 to 9:00 a.m. chore
9:00 to 9:50 a.m. read AFAA
9:50 to 10:00 a.m. 3 Zumba Gold songs
10:00 to 10:50 a.m. read NESTA
10:50 to 11:00 a.m. 3 Zumba Gold songs

12:00 to 12:50 p.m. read Screenwriter’s Bible

12:50 to 1:00 p.m. 3 Zumba Gold songs
1:00 to 1:50 p.m. read Your Screenplay Sucks!
1:50 to 2:00 p.m. 3 Zumba Gold songs
2:00 to 2:50 p.m. read ACE
2:50 to 3:00 p.m. chore

This schedule allows me freedom to move it around but keeps me moving every hour doing a chore like taking out garbage or something that keeps me moving or practicing Zumba. I also can move the reading block into the evening and spend blocks of time interviewing people for research for my screenplay or going to Zumba classes or something else. I can add more writing time but the basic formula allows for movement every hour which is healthier than sitting for solid blocks of time writing or reading.
I highly recommend Dale Carnegie Training. They offer a variety of workshops to learn and grow.
