Wait, Before you go, Check out the 4 Step Simply Organized Planning System to organize your busy mom life.
I started using this 4 step visual planning system to simplify and optimize my time and it’s been a true game changer.
Here’s the breakdown…
Step 1 – Brainstorm
Brainstorm a list of things that need to get done for the week. Use the questions on the left hand side to get evrything thats overcrowding your brain onto paper. Seeing a visual of your to do’s reduces stress and overwhelm and puts things into perspective.
Step 2 – Categorize
Take your brainstorm list from Step 1 and separate them into categories. Breaking down your to do’s visually simplifies the work load making things more “doable”.
Step 3 – Prioritize
In this step, you’re breaking down your categorized tasks even more by applying it to the ABCDE Method. This method is a simple and effective technique that places priority on each of your tasks.
Step 4 – Schedule
In this final step, you fill in your schedule using your prioritized list.
Before you do that, you would fill in any non negotiables first – appointments, meetings, deadlines, etc. and then fill in your tasks from step 3.
The more detailed you are in your planning, the more successful you will be at getting everything accomplished without stress and overwhelm.
Since implementing this planning system, my stress level and overwhelm have decreased drastically. Mom life is TOUGH, being organized is half the battle.
