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!
