Back in the day before I was “just a mom,” I was a career woman like most others. In addition to doing my normal duties at work, I was obsessed with personal productivity and doing the best I could do at everything. I fell in love with David Allen’s Getting Things Done and used it to be able to deal with the massive volume of tasks that my bosses kept adding to my workload. I loved it!
When I made the career switch to mom, I was devastated. I couldn’t get it together. I couldn’t figure out how to do stuff and care for an infant who was ALWAYS on my breast. So I didn’t do much of anything. Once she got older and I learned more about her and babies in general, it got better, but I missed my days of Getting Things Done! I tried Flylady and SHE and other systems but none of them really worked for me.
That is, until I found Mind Organization for Moms. I read about it on a blog and was ecstatic to find someone who had taken the beauty that is Getting Things Done ™ and created a how-to guide for mom’s! It had been so long since I used GTD that I just didn’t have the energy or brain power to figure out how to do it myself. The ladies at The Power of Moms have laid out every step of the GTD system to work for busy moms, from having a single inbox, to managing your paper & even how to work on projects, which has changed. My. Life. Seriously. In fact, I was so blown away by what seems like a simple idea, that my husband laughed at me. It never occurred to me to handle projects the way she suggested. That one tip alone was well worth the $40 program cost. Especially since I can’t have my projects out all over the place while trying to sell the house!
She says that setting aside a few days to make it a priority works best, but with a 4 month old & a 3 year old, that wasn’t going to happen. I took a little over a week, slowly working through each section to make it work for me. I made one $90 investment on drawers because it fixed the most broken part of my existing system and I wanted something functional AND pretty for a change. Technically speaking, I really already had EVERYTHING I needed, I just wasn’t using it to the best of its ability.
The full Mind Organization for Moms program includes:
1. The Short N Sweet overview – a short, 20+ page ebook that shows you the whole plan–start to finish, complete with diagrams, checklists, a shopping list, and the basic instructions.
