Do you sit and wonder how anyone can be on time when they have children? Us too! Thought Id never go anywhere again, for the rest of my life! I mean really, they are the most unpredictable creatures on the planet. It was a MAJOR issue for me to remember where I had to go, let alone get there on time. Id try to lay out clothes prepare for the next day or even the next week and something would always go wrong. Trying to wrangle FIVE girls that all want and feel something different proved to be a feat, fiasco, freighting and all the F words you can think of! ( except the curse words, because I don’t cuss) HA! After, being late + forgetting so many things that should have been on the schedule; I set out on an organization mission. Here are 4 tools to scheduling like a #momboss!
My Most Precious Scheduling Tool: Is My Planner!
Bar None, my planner is the Holy Grail of knowing where and when I’m supposed to be somewhere. Being able to just jot down an appointment or even a quick thought makes me feel like I’m a #momboss already! But, actually going by the schdule and seeing and doing things on time
Close Second: My Phones Google Calendar Tool!
The second, tool to
Note: You can add the Time, date, location W/address that you can click on for google maps to direct you to your location. + you can invite those who also need to be there! Love Google!
Third scheduling tool: Folders Tool In My Email Inbox!
Third scheduling #momboss tool, folders/labels on my Gmail dashboard. How many of us have five daughters with emails coming from all the places that you need to remember to read? (just me huh?) Not to mention the emails that are important to you or your livelihood!? I mean really how do you keep track of them? Well, Its easy and simply done! Create a folder/label for each of your children or business names or anything that you deem as important and make a folder/label. You can watch this Folder/Label video for more detailed instructions.
Fourth Scheduling Tool: Most Important Prayer!
Fourth and Final and most important scheduling like a #momboss tool is prayer! Yes, it sounds cliche but, if I don’t pray and take some time to meditate and clear my mind I won’t be worth much to anyone. I’d be out here like the mean girls, telling people “they can’t sit with me”! Prayer changes things and gives me a chance to reflect on what I need to fill myself and those around me with! Believe it or not, prayer is a game changer to becoming a #momboss.
In short, I will never be perfect and I may still get to places late or miss them altogether! Don’t beat yourself up, remember your the boss! Nobodys perfect, but we have tools to help us along the way to make life with the most unpredictable creatures on the planet but they are OUR creatures and we love them! #bigfacts. It takes a village of moms to lift each other up, let me know what helps you so I can be a better #momboss
