I write this as I miraculously got both kids to nap at the same time. (Mom's get this and will cheer!) The toddler was easy, but the 4.5 yr old is a little older and a little wiser. “I don’t need a nap!” was said so matter of fact and if you didn’t hear the tone that went with it you might have believed her.
She is now the queen in my bed. I'll admit though that I did have to fold laundry in the room until she was asleep. Lucky or unlucky for me (depends on your perspective) I had plenty of clothes to put away.
So what do I do with time to spare? Haha! Time to spare? I have a huge list of to do’s and project after project along with two businesses to run. I start with a shower because as soon as the hubby gets in I’m flying down the Sea-to-Sky corridor to lead Dynamic Women™ in Action Squamish. This is the only pocket of time I have to get rid of my ponytail hair.
I now have time to write this blog… the clarity of what to say is pressured by the looming cries of a little one who could awaken at any moment. You know how it is… the days you have to be somewhere they don’t wake up and the days you need to be home and get things done they wake early.
So it brings me to my topic: How do busy parents or even people get things done? How are they super productive? and run one or like me two businesses?
We work when we can.
I’m sure you have figured a lot of this out already, but my goal is not to earn authorship awards for AMAZING new ideas, but to make them more accessible, digestible and unforgettable.
Let me break this down.
Well, I hear the cries of a small child. So which of the six tactics did I use today? The car as we went to Costco, the pockets while the kids finished their lunch, the double tasking with the laundry and soon double duty because this blog will become my social media posts.
Let me know which ones you will put into play and which ones you already do. Have another one? Tell me by commenting below and I'll add it to my list!
And I hope you can find more opportunities to work when you can, so you can have time for all of your priorities. I’m off to play now!
