Your middle school system isn’t cutting it anymore.
Let me back up.
Now that we’re adulting, we all have a staggering amount of stuff on our plates.
Work projects. Work email. Personal email. Keeping family members alive and sane during this wild time. Personal interests. Sleep. Eating. Childcare. Showering. Laundry. Dishes. All of it.
Think about how you manage all of that.
My guess: events go on the calendar; tasks on to-do lists, post-it notes, phone notes apps, and maybe even an online task management app. And alllll those things like laundry, showering and getting the kids ready are juggled around in your head.
When did you learn that system?
Middle school? With some tech twists over the years – but basically the same format of keeping tasks on lists and the day-to-day activities in your head?
Middle school – when life was far more structured, simple, parents cooked your meals, and you weren’t in charge of others? I mean, you were barely in charge of yourself?
It’s no surprise your middle-school system can’t keep up with you now-much-more-complicated modern working woman life.
And without an effective system, you’re left to juggle and manage it all in your head.
In short, if you feel overwhelmed (all the time or just once a week or so), it’s NOT your fault – but it is your system’s.
And if you trade in that middle school system for a modern working woman’s one, you’ll be amazed at how much of the overwhelm you leave behind, too.
