Ready or Not!
Schools back. That means work, school lunches, PTA meeting, soccer games, ballet recitals.
So what does that mean for your to do list?
Don't let it overwhelm you.
Here are 5 questions to ask yourself about your tasks to keep yourself prepared.
1. What do you need to get done today?
Make a list. What do you NEED to get done today. Write it down. Seeing your list will help you accomplish everything you need to get done.
2. What on that list will you skip over?
There is inevitably always something on that list you know the moment you write it, that you are going to skip it today. Maybe its making a Dr's appointment, maybe its your work out, maybe its making your grocery list. DO NOT SKIP IT. Move it to the top of your list and get it done today!
3. What if you only had 2 hours to complete your list instead of 5?
If you only had 2 hours to complete your list instead of the 5 you told yourself you have, what would you HAVE to fit in to your schedule today. Move those to the top.
4. Where will you waste time today?
We all do it. Maybe you talk to your coworkers at the coffee pot on your break for 15 minutes when you don't even like coffee. Maybe you wake up and scroll through Facebook for 10 minutes before getting out of bed. Look at your list. What can you do in those 10 or 15 minutes that might be more productive?
5. What can you delegate?
Do you need to make PB&J sandwiches for the kids lunch tomorrow? Make it a family event. Grab all the lunch items and put them on the counter and have the kids help you put the lunches together. Need to pick up toilet paper? Have a teenager that drives? MAKE THEM PICK IT UP! Let your family help with your to do list.
