How did life get so crazy??

We juggle work, family, downtime, and most times, we just don’t have enough time in a day to get it all done. And if you run your own business, well, that’s more time needed when you factor in social networking, social media, and blogging to help bring in more business!! Then there is family. You are taking the kids to practices, games, and whatever activities they’re doing. Holidays come around, family parties that you must attend, spouses that are feeling neglected, friends that haven’t seen you in a while. Can we PLEASE get some downtown?!!! How did life get so crazy??

Especially now during this COVID 19 pandemic. Things have gotten out of hand!!

So what can we do about it?? A long time ago, I was a real estate agent. I had to take a continuing education course. I can’t remember the course, but I got the best advice anyone has ever given me. The instructor gave us some advice on how to juggle all our commitments. This is what he said. Write down every obligation you must do every week on your calendar, Monday through Sunday. These are you must-haves. If your kids have practice every Thursday, write it down. Meeting on Tuesday morning, write it down. Are you getting the picture? Then whatever slots are open/free, you can fill in with whatever you want. Has it helped? You betcha!! 

Here is an example of my schedule. I even color coordinate the events!!

It takes commitment to do this at first, but I promise it does work and it will make a huge difference in your life. Organizing your life doesn’t have to be crazy, it just takes a little bit of planning and some commitment on your part. So worth the effort!!
