5 Time Management Tips


grass-1140817_960_720Effective time management… that’s one of our regular prayer request.

Working at home with a toddler is not a joke. Cooking while answering emails,  breastfeeding while talking to a client on the phone. Going back to our home twice because we left important documents or hubby’s driver’s license.

Those are some unseen stories that we have in our everyday journey.

I am always on search for ways that will help our family manage our time wisely so we’ll be better stewards of the gift of time, because we know that God doesn’t want us to always cram and rush. Time is a precious gift. That’s one of the things we cannot bring back right? Time.

Here are some of the ways we’re trying (yes, we are still in the process) to manage our time:

1. Planning ahead – having a calendar and/or a planner helps a lot, scheduling all field transactions so we can just work at home for atleast 3 days in a week and saves us gasoline expense, planning the menu for the week, by having a grocery list so we won’t have to go back to the store everyday.

When to Start & When to Stop

As a WAHM (work-at-home-mom) without a helper or a house companion it is really challenging to balance time from being a hands-on mom, wife and a mompreneur..

But this devotion from Joyce Meyer brightened my day.
I saw this devotion screen shot on my close friend’s facebook wall.
(Jenesis Paredes,hehe)

Sharing this to all people who are always cramming, exhausted with so many tasks and people like me, a mom always praying for inner peace because of round-the-clock responsibilities..

It is true, we should learn when to start and when to stop..
And learn to rely on God’s timing in terms of our career breakthroughs, miracles, dreams and plans in life..

“God is never early, never too late, He is always on time”

Still praying for a well balanced life and effective time management :)
Go multitasking moms and people! We can do this!
