Happy New Year everybody. I only have one resolution this year but its a biggy. This is the year I get organized. And not just in a tidy up my desk and buy some nice stationery kind of way which is what I usually mean when I tell myself I need to be more organized. I mean learning what it takes to be properly organized and developing habits that make it happen again and again.
The lessons I learnt (that’s what I’m calling it) last year about being a mum and running a business all boil down to this one thing. If I was more organized it would be easier to cook healthy meals. It would be easier to get everybody out of the house in time for playgroup, nursery or just to walk the dog before it gets dark. It would be easier to jump between the kids and work, and all that is bound to make day to day life a lot easier for everybody. Sounds to good to be true, right?
I don’t think I’m a lost cause, its just becoming clear that my old ways aren’t cutting it anymore. So no more staring into the fridge hoping for inspiration I’m going to make meal plans. No more running around the house looking for one welly boot there will be a place for everything. And all appointments and goings on will go on the calendar (Ok, yes I did buy some nice stationery). I’d love to hear how you keep organized, what apps do you use? or what habits do you have that keep you on track? I feel like I should know all this stuff already.
I have printed out the above image and stuck it to the wall to keep me on track.
