Being a busy entrepreneur myself, I have put together a short list of what I consider very essential things that you should never leave your house without. This will help you to be more efficient, and also manage the stress better.
We drive ourselves crazy trying to keep up. We move frantically through our days. And as a result, we're so tired. So, so tired. When we get honest, we're haunted by the knowledge that life's most beautiful gifts - like lunches with life-long friends - just can't be rushed.
Every morning, we are out of time. Out of patience. Out of motivational ideas worthy of the pages of glossy parenting magazines. I don't have a bike to throw, but I'd toss my cup of coffee at something if I didn't need it so much.
Life with children, especially with toddlers, would so much easier if you had no agenda. Two hours to walk to Starbucks? No Problem. I have nothing else to do. But that life just doesn't exist, except for, maybe, when Granny visits.
What's your hurry during this lifetime? Now in my 50s, I have realized it is about honoring what is in front of us and not trying to do everything at once. All it takes is five minutes, here and there.
