Every successful woman uses some kind of organizational method. I’m not saying that she uses something complicated. But, unless she’s got a photographic memory or a million hired hands, the with-it woman has her ducks in a row, and someway to organize them.
And I want to be a with-it woman.
(True confessions: I set up a notebook at least once a year, but somewhere along the way, it falls into disrepair and ends up dusty on a shelf. Then I revert to planner sheets on a clipboard.)
I’m still fine-tuning a system that truly works for me. And what I found out about myself is that

Over the weekend, I printed out calendars, to-do sheets, and 92-different kinds of forms. I dug up some lovely green cardstock – eight sheets were left, exactly as many as I needed. And today after our library trip, I hauled all six kids into Fedex to get my new planner bound in a coil binding.
It was a happy day. I came home and started planning my life. I even made doctor’s appointments that I’ve been putting off because I didn’t have a good place to write it all down. I think that this might actually work to help me stay motivated and organized. Here’s hoping!
