The Daily 300
Welcome back to our discussion about time management. The question at hand is a rather important one to ask yourself if you want to get to the next level in any area of your life. You can either do what you have to do to keep your time in check or you can let it walk mercilessly all over you. And you wonder why you always feel exhausted and brain-dead…
Please trust that I am no stranger to the trampling feet of the twenty – four – hours – gone – terribly – wrong syndrome. In fact, I’m somewhat taking a beating right now as I’ve added some challenging projects to my schedule. I haven’t quite nailed down the best way in which to handle all of my responsibilities. The important thing is that I’m working toward it by practicing what I preach.
Why You Lose Control of Your Calendar
When things get horrifically busy for mom, you know it’s gonna be bad for everyone. So we kind of have to deal with the core of the problem which could be a number of things. Here’s just a few culprits that get the best of mommies everywhere:
• Inability to say no – It’s nice to give of your time but you need boundaries for your own sake and that of your family’s.
• Inability to delegate tasks or ask for help – Even Super woman has her limitations.
• Pride, Status, and Money – Oooh…she did not just go there! Yes, I did!
• You thrive on chaos and don’t want to change – It’s messy but someone has to do it, right?
Whether you have any or all of these issues needling you or something different altogether, it still boils down to YOU and YOUR willingness to make some changes. Let us know how you do. And that about says it for now. Be well-be beautiful.

so true. 🙂 I am full of joyful chaos. 2 dogs. 4 cats. a lot of kitty litter and more of sweeping the floors. I started a checklist this evening. just for tonight. 16 items on the list for today. 3 items I have been able to cross off. But it is a start.
