Mind Organization For Moms

Many years ago my brother tried to tell me that Dave Ramsey could change my financial life.  I didn’t believe him at the time.  In fact, it wasn’t until we had paid our last car payment and could scream “we’re debt free” that I was truly a believer.  Fast forward a couple of years and my baby brother was at it again.  This time telling me that David Allen’s Getting Things Done program could help me gain control over my mind and paper clutter.  Just like with Dave Ramsey, I bought the book and tried to master the organizational principles.  If my brother likes it, I’m usually an easy sell.  But truth be told I could never quite get it to work.  No matter how hard I tried I couldn’t combine the mom-worker-wife-homemaker-blogger into the neat little program that David Allen had packaged.

Enter ‘The Power of Moms.’  Using principles from Getting Things Done, ‘The Power of Moms’ developed the program Mind Organization For Moms.  In short, they took David Allen’s program and made it doable for moms.  Real moms.  Ones with backpacks full of artwork coming home from multiple kids every day.  Ones with voicemails, messages, emails, and papers coming at them from every direction.  Ones who crave being organized but don’t have a system in place that really works.  Real moms like me.

Don’t get me wrong.  I’ve always been an organized person.  But having four kids has stripped me of all of my natural organizational tendencies.  I’ve met my match.  My children.  I didn’t actually try the program until a few weeks ago.  I had heard about it a while back and wanted to, but I didn’t think I had the time to implement the strategies.  Not true.  I had plenty of time.  This program is worth every penny it costs and every minute it takes to get it started.  In fact, it has the potential to reorganize your mind and in the end, your life.

I now have a physical inbox that is truly empty, email inboxes also at zero, and a system that allows me to truly have a place for everything while forgetting nothing.  Nothing short of amazing.  The picture for this post is proof.  I wouldn’t dare post what it looked like before!  The Mind Organization For Moms program is available for $50 and honestly that’s a steal.  For $28 more you can get extra coaching on the program that walks you through its implementation step by step over two weeks.  Check out their website for all these programs have to offer.

I’ve been blogging now for almost two years and have never done a give away.  That’s right.  Never.  But I’m making an exception today.  I have one free Mind Organization For Moms program to give away to one lucky reader.  Just comment below by June 24, 2012, and one of you will be randomly selected to win the program.  It’s that simple!  And in the meantime, check out Mind Organization For Moms for more tips on how you can get organized.  For good.

Update:  The Mind Organization For Moms giveaway is now closed.  The winners have been notified.  Thanks to all who entered !

    This sounds like something my wife might like to try!

    Get Organized, with kids?!? That would feel great!!

  3. Glad to be of help, sis! I guess I have to opt out of your contest, but it’s great that you are helping others with the giveaway.

    These programs really work, if you are willing to make a change. It sometimes takes ‘being sick and tired of being sick and tired’ or hitting a wall, but once you do, programs like these can really get your life on track for success. It is AMAZING what a little focused intensity will do.

    I am not a card carrying GTD’er, but many of the GTD principles I have implemented have been a tremendous help. Especially the filing system, inbox zero, and ‘tickler file’ system. I’m now studying a program called “Zen to Done”, which is a simplified GTD methodology, to see how I might take better control of the projects, constant input, and idea flow.

    These are the sort of things that they should teach in high school and college. IMHO, It is a big failure on the part of our education system that an overwhelming majority of kids have to learn the hard way (or never learn at all), a long time after they have left home and have families of their own, to really take control of their finances, careers, and lives in general.

  4. Elizabeth Yost says:

    Yes, Keven’s wife needs something to help get this chaos under control!

  5. Misty Cheshire Risner says:

    Hi Polly, this looks like something I can use. I try my best to stay organized with three active boys and running the family small business but sometimes I have to put a reminder on my phone so I don’t forget to pick one of the boys up somewhere!

  6. Amy Parker says:

    Judging by your picture, this must be amazing! I was extremely organized as a teacher. As a mom – not so much:)

  7. Oh, please, PLEASE pick me!! I could use some organization BIG TIME!

  8. Nicole Gaillard says:

    You have no idea how much I need this!! HELP!

  9. Angela Fitzmorris says:

    Four kids here too, and boy do I need help containing chaos!

  10. Boy do I need this. My house is likely a fire hazard with all the stacks of paper around here.

  11. This definitely sounds like something I could use.

  12. Leigh Owen says:

    I love organization, but I never feel completely organized! I am looking into this for sure!

  13. I had looked at this a while back, your story of how it’s working for you makes me realize I need to get it back to the top of my list – the list that is out of control and driving me crazy :) A new way of thinking and managing my thoughts and tasks would be wonderful. I guess I’ll have to buy it if I don’t win :)

  14. Kim Whitehead says:

    I’d love to win, but don’t know if I can wait this long to check it out. :)

  15. Polly – you know I need this with my 2 little ones :) Thanks for the resource recommendation! I’ll definitely be investigating this one!

  16. Angie White says:

    What amazing concept! We are still working Dave Ramsey, but this sounds like a great addition!

  17. I am an organized person…but I need some help. You had me at the ‘four backpacks full of artwork…” Would love to give it a try. :)

  18. Will it help the type Z personality?

  19. Jen Thurow says:

    This is definitely what I need. I’ve been trying to create a desk of my own in my closet for months now. I’ve gotten all the necessary organizer tools, but I’m still battling large piles and chaos. HELP!!!

  20. Thanks to all that entered the Mind Organization For Moms giveaway! The winner (and runner-up) have been notified by email. Best of luck to everyone in getting and staying organized!
