Mommy, You Just Need to Be Wonder Woman

Time management is an excellent super power to have

It sounds like I am actively against planning, but I am really not.  I am actively against unrealistic planning. I have found that my own system works best for me and my business:  I write down everything I have to do each day prior to starting my work day, and  I put everything in one of three categories: things that must get done today, things I could get done today, and things that can wait.

I made a promise to myself that I will be proud of myself if I just accomplish the things that must get done.   If I have time, I get to the could ones -- but that is pretty rare.  As for the things that are in the can wait category, well, they wait and that is OK.

My advice for everyone reading this article: Do the best you can, set realistic expectations taking into consideration your responsibilities, and hide two matching bracelets in your desk for the times you need to repel evil clients!

  • The good thing about superheroes is they are "regular people by day" and only use their super powers when called on! I think being a working mom the super powers are needed especially when the plans go out the window and you have to wing it. So enjoy the regularness as much as the superness and you won't feel you are not reaching an unrealistic goal: but rather you are being a super mom!
