I work with busy moms, helping them feel less overwhelmed. I’ve been there. I get it. I have 2 kids, a business, and occasionally a social life.
I don’t buy that we are as busy as we say we are. Or, maybe we are but are we focused on what’s important or just putting out fires? We are always going to have items on our to-do list. We will always have laundry to do, dishes to put away, and many other tasks for work and house. But we also need to make time to read a book, take a hike, spend time with those we love, and even get a good night’s sleep!
I’m not saying my house is Martha Stewart perfect. As I write this, there are toys throughout the living room. There are likely a few piles of tasks on my desk. And there are definitely post-it notes on the kitchen counter full of reminders. I like my post-it notes.
There are also systems in place to get the house picked up, and everything has a home so things are easily dealt with. I know where things are so it’s easy to find what I need when I need it.
My task list sometimes feels overwhelming. I have days where I add more to it than cross off it. But I know that I do not have to tackle everything today. I make plans each week to tackle the tasks that move me forward in my business and my personal life. My task list is a work in progress, just like me.
I want this for my clients. The ability to not feel so overwhelmed. Working together, we can tackle any time management project you have!
