Common time wasters and tips on how to better manage your time.
Nashville, Ark. – Now that school is back in full swing with ball games, after school
band practice, dance practice, cheerleading practice, and the list goes on and on,
do you find there are not enough hours in the day? If you do not manage your time,
it will be managed for you. It will be scheduled and stolen by others who need you.
In order to be at your best, you must learn to slow down and take time for yourself.
To sit on the porch and watch the sun go down may seem unproductive to some – but
if it leaves you rejuvenated and ready to give your all to a project, then it is time
One of the reasons we do not accomplish all we would like to is that we allow time
wasters to steal our precious hours and minutes. Some common time wasters are:
Learning to manage your time is a useful leadership skill. This and other leadership
topics are offered through the Extension Homemaker programs in Howard County. The

the second floor of the courthouse to learn more about EHC! The Cooperative Extension
Service is part of the University of Arkansas System Division of Agriculture.
The cooler weather we experienced last week encourages me to use the oven more often
to prepare “comfort foods” for my family. This recipe is easy to prepare but will
make your family think you spent hours in the kitchen. If you find a tenderloin on
sale, buy it. I like to divide them into serving sizes for my family of two, while
saving a couple larger portions when the kids come home for the weekend. Wrap, label
and freeze portions for the later use.
Marinade for pork. Recipe below.
2 (1 pound or a larger 2 pound) pork tenderloin
Non-stick cooking spray
½ cup apple juice
¼ cup Dijon mustard
¼ cup chopped fresh rosemary
8 cloves garlic, minced
¾ teaspoon ground pepper
Make marinade by combining all ingredients in a large mixing bowl or gallon size plastic
zipper type bag.
Add tenderloin to bag and seal. Turn bag to coat pork. Refrigerate overnight.
Drain and discard marinade from meat.
Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and place pork into the dish.
Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees F until an instant read thermometer reaches 160 degrees
F (about 40-45 minutes).
Let stand 10 minutes before slicing.
