Time Mastery – How does a busy mom become a time master? By mastering her emotions, her boundaries, her schedules and her distractions. Time mastery is not really about mastering time at all, but about mastering the things you allow to fill your time. The biggest mistake many moms make is trying to manage time.
Creating a Plan – Creating a plan keeps you from living in what I call O.P.P. *Other People’s Priorities* When you have a clear map on what you want your day and life to look like you’re less likely to fall into the trap of getting caught up in needless drama and distractions. Having a clear plan based on how you want to feel and why keeps you focused and using your energy in a way that serves you.
Applying Boundaries – This is often a toughie for moms. We’re great at setting boundaries but we aren’t so great at making sure those boundaries get followed. If you’re already stressed, all it takes is a rough day or a child asking you the same question over and over while passing out on the floor kicking and screaming that will make you break through any boundary. How does a mom keep her boundaries intact? By knowing how you want to feel and why you set the boundary in the first place. When you are clear about your boundary endgame, you make sure that the boundary is clear, that you are consistent in applying it and that you are compassionate when you need to redirect others to stay on track.
