You’ve probably heard that, “if you want something done, give it to a busy person” but if you’re like most of the 100’s of women I’ve talked with over the last few years, your organizing systems leave something to be desired.
Here’s why “if you want something done, give it to a busy person” works and what that looks like…
Most women are great at taking on a lot of responsibilities and commitments, and find a way to follow through on everything they commit to.
BUT, if you ask her how she gets it done, she has absolutely NO CLUE! She will probably tell you she is overwhelmed by the state of her life.
She is constantly running from here to there and she never feels like she’s getting anything accomplished.
And, she definitely isn’t taking any time for herself.
This means that if you ask a busy woman to do something for you, it will get done, but she is giving up a piece of herself to do it.
Maybe you’re one of those busy women, or you know one.
Imagine how much happier you or she could be if you were on top of all the random things that come at you every day, and you knew whether or not you had time to take on any other tasks.
The easiest and most effective way to stay on top of your daily stuff is to keep up with things on a routine basis. Then you are able to make quick decisions and changes when needed.
A good rule of thumb for maintaining a routine is to break things down to their simplest acts and do them on a regular basis.
With a working routine you can:
● Respond to emails in a timely manner
● Put your hands on any piece of paper whenever you need it (no more hunting)
● Rely on your calendar/schedule to tell you if you have time to add something new
● Know that if you were ever sidelined, your home would not fall apart, your family would know exactly what to do
Getting help to build your routine is like taking advantage of someone else’s trials and errors. The sooner you start working on it the better. And the longer you work at it, the more YOU it will be.
To quantum leap building your routine, I recommend participating in the Conquer your information Overload in 3 Easy Steps Virtual Workshop.
What would it mean to you if you were able to take action on the information being taught right away. I know for me, it was the key to success in making a positive change. That is the benefit of being on a LIVE virtual workshop.
