The consulting work has been going well. We are currently in the midst of our first fundraiser. We have mailed 3,000 pieces and will be following up with potential donors this week.
This year my New Year’s Resolution was to be in the moment when I am in a moment by not thinking about everything else I could or should be doing. Since I am working at home, I am finding that it is a bit of a struggle to manage when I should be working and when I should be just a mommy. Also, I am having trouble remembering that I need to take a least 1 day a week off from work.
So, this week my goal is to find a work schedule that will work for my family and me. Since school is back in session, I am working while the children are in preschool. Also, I have set the alarm clock early to have time in the morning before the rest of the house wakes up.
This makes for a 6 hour work day rather than an 8 hour workday. I will have to be as productive in those 6 hours as I would be in 8 hours. I think I can do this by focusing on what I am working on rather than thinking about what to cook for dinner or thinking I should be playing with my children.
Hopefully, setting these boundaries by adjusting my schedule will help me be in the moment whether it is work time, mommy time, or me time.
