It’s back to school time. This didn’t mean much to me when I didn’t have kids or my kids weren’t in school yet. Our oldest child is starting school tomorrow. I must admit I am sad for all the same reasons every other mom is sad when their first child goes to school. But what does this mean for my business?I remember thinking… when my kids are in school I will have all the time in the world to work on my business. I equated kids in school with freedom to work my business. Though that might be true I didn’t seem to get the whole picture of more kids following the first. Thus with my first starting school, we still have a toddler walking around learning to talk. So I’m still not truly home free yet.I can’t work my business on a future schedule. I need to work my business on today’s schedule. I also never considered when school starts a whole other world begins. School activities like PTA, conferences, volunteering, sports and the list goes on.
This is what I see very clearly the night before my sons first day of school (sniffle sniffle).
Never put off today what you need to do in your business to move forward.
Time will fly by and before you know it, my kids will be graduating from high school (sniffle, sniffle).
Time is always being eaten up by something, so carve out the time to work your business and get it done.
Keep your eye on the prize because something will always try to steal that spot light.
Enjoy every moment of every day because it can change instantly.
As our families schedule changes so does mine as a stay at home mom. My schedule works around their schedules. I plan how many hours I will work for the week and what I need to get done. Then when it’s time to work, I work. I don’t do laundry, I don’t wash dishes, I don’t clean the house, I don’t watch television, I don’t fill in the blank. I work.I’m still not perfect by any means. Its progress not perfection and I have come a long way! Managing my time and being disciplined are so key here. After I take the first day of school pictures, kiss my son good bye, cry for a little bit, I am then going to get to work. I have some amazing goals for the next two years and it will take daily action. They might even take massive daily action.What I can say for sure is I am the luckiest mom in the whole world because I am able to see my son off to school and not have to ask a boss for the day off!!! How cool is that! If one of your goals is to be home with your kids, sign up for my newsletter to learn more about how I am doing it at [http://www.lessworkmorefamily.com/].
