― David Allen
“Sometimes the biggest gain in productive energy will come from cleaning the cobwebs, dealing with old business, and clearing the desks—cutting loose debris that’s impeding forward motion.”
No one ever died from sleeping in an unmade bed. I have known mothers who remake the bed after their children do it because there is wrinkle in the spread or the blanket is on crooked. This is sick.
What these mean to me in in a nut shell.
- I can do a bunch of stuff in a day, but I cannot do every single thing that the world would have me do, otherwise I will not be a momma, I will be a broken robot with bad hair.
- If my desk is clean I am probably having a rocking day, if my desk is a mess, my plate is too full and something is going to be undone at the end of the week. Usually that means me.
- If my house is not perfect, but my kids giggle in bed at night while hiding under the covers with a flashlight reading a good book, I have won.
What helps your through your days as a busy parent? What keeps you productive even in the midst of family and life chaos? Would love to hear from you!
Have a rocking Friday.
-Momma Groove is my little blurbs and shares from around the web of what helps me to Get Things Done around the house, the office and my volunteer work. I am not alone in this quest and we the busy, busy moms and dads are holding this fort down the best we can. Momma Groove is meant to inspire us to take care of our families and ourselves while being the most productive and efficient along the way.
P.S. I am always inspired by David Allen from Getting Things Done… he is my hero.
