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.
