Today at the bus stop we were talking about all the things on our plates, kids, work, housework, extracurriculars(our own, and our children's), and then all the things that we would like to do that gets pushed aside by the things that we can't drop. We also all know at least on person that does manage to get it ALL done, and well, and with a smile on their face as well as their kids faces. So how do they do it?
They have prioritized, is my guess. They have, possibly innately, the ability to prioritize all the items in their life. Somewhere along the way they have decided what items are really important and have culled all the rest. This isn't just about the big stuff, like how many sports their kids will be involved in, but the little stuff like loading the dishwasher EVERY morning before leaving the house instead of checking facebook.
And there we touch on my weakness...Electronics, especially social media. The amount of time that I waste in a day checking facebook, and twitter, and reading blogs, and checking e-mail is FRIGHTENING!
The things I could theoretically get done if I culled ALL social media. So this week I will be restricting my "connection". This week I will spend 15 minutes, twice a day catching up on my social media network. Oh boy! This is going to be a challenge. I wonder what I will get done this week?
