Thanks for the article. It was a helpful read. I’ve actually been working at my local airport and putting my ground instructor certificate to use working with student pilots to help them with the FAA Knowledge Test (I’m a private pilot myself). Another flight instructor and I have been working for months to put together PowerPoints for once a month seminars to help students with the FAA Knowledge Test. This has required me to put together daily to-do lists to get materials together for the seminars. I’ve also been helping a little in the maintenance shop pulling off inspection panels for aircraft inspections and I’m looking to wash some airplanes for a little cash. It isn’t a *perfect* schedule, but finding activities out there has motivated me to be more proactive in getting up and not sleeping until noon. Plus, most of my friends are out there, my spouse instructs there, and aviation is one of my main interests and hobbies. I’ve also been making lists of things I want to accomplish, too. I usually put no more than five down so I don’t get overwhelmed, and I do my best to prioritize. I’m also trying hard to maintain a sleeping schedule.
