One of the ways I organize my inbox is to create a to-do folder where I place (after reading) any tasks that need to be completed or I must follow up on. The problem with this organization method, which used to work wonderfully, is that since my husband left his job back towards the end of August, all organization went out the door. I was tossed into juggling not only my blog to-do’s but my business, the kids and while doing all that I had to take on a bit more of the responsibilities of supporting my husband in a time of high stress.
I am finally at the point where my head is on straight again, my stance is strong and my smile is getting stronger! The reason is … my husband is returning to work on Monday … YAY! Not only am I happy because this will help financially but I am happy because now I can finally work through my to-do list and hopefully find that I didn’t neglect anyone’s needs.
I will give you an FYI; most of the to-do labels within my gmail account are from my blog, they are not necessarily my VA clients, all of whom never get tossed into the to-do file for the reason I know they just may get lost during this crazy time of my life. All my VA client work gets tossed into a separate folder so that I know each day what I am responsible for doing for that client.
I must admit I started stressing out a bit, looking at over 50 emails in my to-do folder, luckily it appears I simply forgot to “remove the label to-do” from the majority of my emails in the to-do folder, so that’s been a sigh of relief for me. I would hate for anyone to think I was the absent minded mother
Oh well … life happens and then it happens again and all of a sudden something hits you and BAM you are back on a roll … which is the point of this whole rambling by Brandy post … I am BACK and BETTER THAN EVER!!
Make it a Happy Day!
