Have you ever met someone who just seems to have it all together? They always look great, seem to be happy, organized and not nearly as frenetic as what’s going on in your brain. Even their hair looks freshly colored, cut and blown out. And then there’s you. You look pretty good on the outside, but inside you feel up and down, one minute on, one minute off, one minute organized, the next, well, not so sure. How do they do it? (you ask yourself). Those women. The other women. The truth is, believe it or not, YOU probably are one of those women from the perspective of someone else. Guaranteed there are at least a handful of women out there who are looking at you and wondering—how does she do it—get dinner on the table, the kids shuttled to their activities, her business up and running and time for an afternoon jog—believe it or not, you are likely more THAT WOMAN than you think. So take a deep breath, relax. Once you get it together inside, life will be a little more seamless—you’ll feel like you’re coasting about 2 inches off the ground, watching yourself—the observer of perfection—and a giant sigh of relief.
And, checklists are awesome! Plan your work and then work your plan. It’s so worth it and you feel so accomplished when you get to check something off. It’s amazing the rush of confidence you feel when little by little you are reaching your goals!
