Lessons Learned

Thursday, December 18, 2014
I'm making some basic planners as Christmas gifts.  My mom says she is going to call hers "The Brain" and when I consider how important my planner has been to me, I can see where that would be an appropriate name.

This morning was an overwhelming one for me.  I checked my calendar, had my to-do list in place but it seemed like thing kept getting added to it while I sat there.  My tech-less hubby needed me to (all of a sudden) text members of the basketball team he coaches.  I was in the middle of school, my sister called me needing something, and just about exploded!  Sometimes you can't write things on the to-do list fast enough.

I started receiving messages (numbers not names) from the team member parents for my hubby.  I even thought I was going to be overwhelmed with that as well until I told myself - "you have a planner, what is the best way to deal with this?"  I wrote "Basketball Notes" at the top of a sheet of paper and filed it behind my "Current" tab.  Done.  Planner Peace.

During all of that, I had almost forgotten an online banking task I needed to do and I had to stop and write that simple task on my list because I very well nearly forgot it.  That, I realized, was a very important lesson for me.  Sometimes when everything is crazy around you and an important thought pops into your head, you have to just stop everything and take 3 seconds to write it down - you might find yourself in a bigger mess if you don't!


  1. Oh man do I need this! I can't tell you how many times I've misplaced it'sms due to my memory lapses! Kids toys removed during arguments, Christmas presents, important paperwork! Thank you for sharing!!

  2. I bought some gift tags last year in an after Christmas sale and "put them up" and now that I need them, I can't remember where that was! I soooo need this!
