It is fantastic to know when it comes to work life balance you can ask a mom how to do it.
The internet, bookstores, newspapers and even grocery market lines are always full of people talking about how hard it is to balance work and life. I am always amused by the “experts” who are full of advice on how it can or cannot be done. These alleged experts talk about which side is more important and why we are all doomed because work life balance will never be achieved. Today I encourage you to stop listening to all the experts who tell you that work life balance is impossible. Instead, I want you to go ask a mom. Look around at your friends, family members and co-workers, somewhere in that group is a mom who is making it work.
When you find that mom who is making it work, that mom who is working crazy hours and still getting dinner on the table, the laundry done, and the kids to school on time each morning. Find that mom and talk to her. Ask her what she does. She may be hanging on by a thread and tell you she is barely getting it all done. If she does, ignore that part and still ask her to tell you her system. Ask her how she does it, does she use an app? Is her day planner full of post its? Ask her if she has alarms going off on her cell phone every thirty minutes reminding her what to do? Just find out what it is that she is doing to get it all done.
