Time Management

How often do we use these words or phrases?
- Can you believe how time flies?
- I wish I had a 25 hour day.
- Father time...
- The sands of time...

And they all indicate the same thing. No matter who, how rich or important we are, we all have the same amount of time in a day.  “If I had six hours to chop down a tree, I would spend the first four sharpening the axe.” – Abraham LincolnSo we are all faced with the same dilemma - how to use our time wisely.

I found this article "8 Tips for Effective Time Management" extremely insightful. If I can just apply half of it I will be such a happy person. lol

1. Know your goals.
2. Prioritize wisely.
- Important and urgent.
- Important but not urgent.
- Urgent but not important.
- Not urgent and not important.
3. Just say no.
4. Plan ahead.
5. Eliminate distractions.
- Your smartphone is extremely useful, but it’s also addictive and among the most insidious time-wasters known to mankind.
6. Delegate more often.
7. Watch what you spend.
- How many productive minutes are you packing in each week? 
8. Take care of yourself.
- Be sure to get plenty of sleep and exercise. An alert mind is a high-functioning mind and one that’s less tolerant of time-wasting activities.

 So I guess the following statement applies to me “You don’t need more time… You just need to decide.” – Seth Godin. Please add your comments below and let us know about your time related challenges and how you cope with it.

Have a super week and happy stitching.

We have quite a few purses on our website and I have a few in my cupboard too. I am certain you can say the same. And you might even have an old purse you inherited as a family heirloom. I was curious to know what the oldest purse was, ever discovered. What an exciting journey that was. What do you think?

1. How old is the oldest preserved purse? 
2. And how far back can purses be traced in history?
