How To Manage Time When Nothing Is Going Your Way

You’re already 5 minutes late when the tire bursts and you spill your coffee on your clothes.
 
What do you do? How do you manage time in a situation like this?
 
Simple answer — you don’t. You’re already too late in this case.
 
That’s what would usually happen to me. I would be late, some emergency or another ruining my day, my clothes, and my appointments.
 
It seemed like I attracted trouble everywhere I went.
 
You know that U2 song lyric… ‘like an accident waiting to happen, a piece of glass left there on the beach…’ I was that person.
 
I felt like a lost cause. But the funny part is that I’d tried everything.
