Perhaps you have heard the statement, "people make the world go round." People are the essence of social networking. But just what does a person do when they are doing their best and things just do not seem to be working out? It is amazing how huge a challenge seems when we are living through it.

No matter how things get, it is so important to stick to your schedule. In fact if you don't have a schedule you're subject to get off track and stay off track for a long time and not notice that you re drifting from your intended assignment. For years I had intentions of doing things during the course of a day but I would find myself floating all over the map. It's not that I wasn't busy.
