Forgetting Things, Mom? Why You Should Take Notes, Notes & More Notes! by Charlene Torkelson
We forget things. Due to busy schedules, we have times when we can’t recall ideas. They disappear. Here’s a thought – take notes. Jot it down. A list ensures quick success in completing tasks.
Grab paper as you walk out the door. Tucked into a pocket, this allows more organization. At day’s end, it feels good to complete your list! A shopping list not only means we won’t forget items, discovered when at home, but saves us from buying items we don’t need.
As a new mom, my schedule became a bit more relaxed – not stress-free relaxed, but loose and unstructured relaxed. I was asking each day if I completed anything. The difference in a career schedule and a parenting schedule is not always seeing what was accomplished. I began to write down goals, and was able to check off items, feeling a sense of productivity I hadn’t had before. It put a smile on my face rather than an urge to burst into tears.
Notebooks are great for making lists and jotting down ideas and phrases. One word can make a big difference in your day and your life. Today I wrote, “Negative thoughts will not be tenants in my mind.”
