Having to manage your time and tasks can either be your closest friend or fiercest enemy, depending on your organizational abilities, discipline, and execution.
As a busy working stay-at-home mom, business owner, wife, friend, neighbor, sister, daughter, (and numerous other roles), there were many times in my life where I ran on pure, raw energy, jumping from task to task with no real (or clear) control over my day.
Much like a puppet on a string, I allowed my life to be controlled by an invisible force called responsibility. Let’s just say that Mr. Responsibility and I were NOT friends, and we clashed on many occasion resulting in stressful, joyless, and exhaustive days.
Fast-forward to 2015 and the snapshot of my life paints a much more balanced, happy, and controlled existence.
So what am I doing so differently today that allowed me to become a puppet master, pulling my own strings?
