I often get told that I’m balancing a lot and I certainly am, but so are lots of other people. And there’s nothing quite like having a baby to put everything into perspective, and force you to get organized.
Here are the major things I have going on, in no particular order of importance:
- I am a mom
- I am a wife
- I am a dog owner
- I run a CrossFit affiliate
- I run a non-profit working on getting girls into working out
- I am a sister
- I am a daughter
- I am a life/accountability/personal coach
I’m sure there are roles I play that I’m forgetting, but in the 3 seconds I thought about it, those are the ones that came to mind.
How do I keep it all straight? Lots of times I don’t, but when I do it’s because I have a notebook, yes an old school notebook. I sit down daily and hand write a todo list for that day of my bare minimum to get done. If I finish those 3-5 tasks the day is a success and anything over that makes me a super hero.
I have ONE notebook for it all with tabs for different sections. From my master notebook I make my daily todo in a separate notebook that includes tasks, appointments and more importantly my NAP!
I tried every app under the sun with zero success, it wasnt until i dusted off the old notebook that life made sense again
