@Janet, great to hear how you shape your day. When I work outside of the office with clients, it's tough to keep any kind of schedule. But I have billing to do and blogging, too. It's tough to keep up. Last thing I want to do after a long day is work MORE! After 10 years in business I feel like I have earned the ability to put some of it aside for a few hours... Again, thank you for the comments! Can't wait to hear what others are going to say about their schedule! John aka OrganizingLA
