Moms: Want to Get More Stuff Done? Don’t Write a To-Do List Each Week: Try Doing This Instead!

Want to get stuff done in the most positive way possible? When you begin your week, write a "Goal List" instead of a "To-Do" list. Goals are a more positive spin on the several tasks you must accomplish during the week, rather than calling it your list of drudgery. Don't set specific finish times to accomplish each "goal," as you never know what to expect each day. 

A flexible parent runs with the tides. Moms that are working from home in a busy environment often need to reshuffle their days due to a cancelled sports game, long-running music lessons or sick kids. 

Above all, be flexible. Life is so much easier when you roll with the punches!

Love phrasing it as a goal! I'm going to start doing that today!
