Working Mums (Calm the Chaos)

Calm the Chaos
by Lee Stemm // June 22 // 0 Comments

I responded to that menu in my head. Sometimes I forget that others cannot read my mind. I’m working on that.

Working Mums wear a lot of hats and have lots of things on our mind every day. Do you think sometimes that you simply get caught up in the Chaos? Juggling between running those important meetings, getting caught up on putting out those bush fires, chasing up information that was supposed to be on your desk, however your desk is so piled up, it has completely disappeared. All day you seem to be chasing your tail, and on top of everything you start to notice two of your team members are not playing together well in the office.

Catching your Breath .......

You catch a couple of moments in between all the drama and then you realized that you never hit the send button on that important menu, that came into your inbox earlier in the morning. Now you need to explain to your manager, why you missed yet another deadline.

You take a deep breath and think to yourself, wouldn’t be great if people could just read my mind? Okay maybe that would not be a good thing, as some thoughts probably are best kept to yourself. Right!

You attended last month the Time Management Course, so you have the knowledge, however you simply are not applying these skills consistently into your everyday activities. Your life is in Chaos and you take a moment to reflect on what happened to you.

Chaos begins before you even enter the office

It all started when you woke up.  Chaos in trying to meet the needs of your family, whilst getting to the office in time. You are running as soon as you wake up, looking for items that seemed to disappear into the abyss. Looking for your IPAD that you put on the corridor table, and yet someone has moved it, yet again.  As you dash past the kitchen, you grab your piece of toast, followed by your suitcase, grabbing your coat, and quickly calling out Bye honey have a good day.

Immediately you enter the office, and the chaos starts all over again.

Believe me I know exactly how you feel. Did you know that you cannot manage time? We all get 24 hours a day to make choices of how we want to use this time. Yes, that is right, we can calm the chaos through making good choices and implementing good early morning habits, that will support us for the rest of the day.

Create your Structure First

Having a structure and routine at home, is just as important as at work. Those time management skills that you use at work, can be applied at home as well. How your day starts out will dictate the mood for the rest of your day. It is time to put some time aside for you.

What are your morning rituals that will set you up for a productive day, feeling energized and focused? Take some time out and put in place a routine that will support your needs along with your families. Set yourself up for success before you even enter the office.

There is a favorite saying of mine, Talk Care of Self First, Before Taking Care of Others.
