Reclaiming my life, bit by bit

So I've been working on getting the Mind Organization for Mom's program implemented in my life.  I'm taking a little longer than I probably should have, because it was really hard to focus on getting it completely set up during spring break for my kids last week!

I would say I'm doing the system about 70% right now.  That's not due to the program being hard to follow (because it's surprisingly simple once set up), only that I don't quite have all my crap sorted out that I needed to go through in order to get it all "plugged in" to the sytem.  <----- I know that doesn't really even make any sense, since ("sense since"?), you don't KNOW the system.  But I am already seeing big changes in my life.  I am still following the email system I told you about, and it is working like a charm!

I can't wait until I have the program fully implemented (like within the next couple of days...woohoo!), and then give you guys a review and also give a copy of the awesome program away to one of you!

One of the things that doing this has really helped me with, is seeing exactly where I commit my time.  It is all laid out before me as I categorize all the projects I am involved in, and it's been interesting and a little embarrassing to see how much time I spend on things that really aren't as important as they seem when I obsess over them - in comparison with the things that truly are important and meaningful.  It's really helping me prioritize my time and my commitments.  I think it is really going to bless my family.

That's about it for an update on my organization tackling...I'll have much more for you soon though!

Linking up with my girls!

I'm looking forward to learning more about your organizational prowess - I used to be mega organized until I had a kid, then Mommy Brain took over and organization went mostly out the window. ;)

I could stand to be more organized. Looking forward to seeing what this system is all about.

Organization just makes me happy! I'm glad it's working out for you. Did you have to program in our date nights? We have two this week and I couldn't be more excited about it. =)

Thanks for linking up! You know we love your face!

I am excited to hear about it. I am, however, a little afraid that if I did the program, I would realize just how much time I waste on the unimportant stuff.

I do NOT want to see where I spend my time. I'd die of embarassment I bet.
I can't wait to see how it all works!

This is awesome! I agree that I'd probably be a little embarassed to see where all my time goes, eek!

I've been trying to de-clutter our space here. When we first moved in it was so nice an simple, now, not so much!

I know if I take a good, hard look at where I spend my time, I'll find that I waste a lot more of it than I realize.

I love being organized but that scars me a little. Does it take away the opportunity for spontaneity?

I know where my time suck is, this darned computer is my best friend and my worst enemy!

Thanks for linking up with us we love our X!
