The past two weeks we’ve had a fairly good routine, but it’s still not there yet. And I’ve begun to feel that familiar panic when I have too much to do and too little time. So, I took a moment and ran through all my responsibilities in my head, and the panic went up 3 notches.
Then I realized that I can do it all – I just have to be more intentional and organized!
And here to help me is….(drum roll please…)
This is what it looks like:
If you’ve never used Google Calendar before, it is very simple.
1. From any Google page, you’ll find the link at the top under your address bar. Click on the date and time you want to schedule an event.
2. If it’s a one time event, you can use the small pop-up box, otherwise click on “edit event” and you’ll be taken to a screen where you can add more information about the event and schedule it to repeat daily, weekly (weekdays, on certain week days, etc), monthly or annually.
This is great for keeping track birthdays, anniversaries and holidays, too!
At every event you receive an email reminder.
Plus you can color-code it, too and keep multiple calendars going in one place! I have color codes set up from when I used Google Calendar before – for family events, blogging and ministry events – and I plan to use them again.
The best part is, by keeping to this strict schedule, I get Saturday off. Clean house, laundry done, baking done, blogging done, comments answered, severely neglected emails answered, severely neglected FB page updated, and all my work and ministry done!
On top of that…
When the kids go to bed, I wont have to work.
I can’t wait for next week!!!
