The kids don’t want to eat breakfast. The whole family is running late. You have a quarterly report due by noon. Somehow, all three kids have different extracurricular activities this evening. And your task list is a mile long. Where is a mobile planner and organizer when you need one?
We know as a Mom, you. are. busy! From managing home life to chasing after your own dreams, it feels like there is never enough time in the day and you find yourself wondering, “How can I be more productive?”
Some days it feels like your to do list is driving your day, but YOU can be the one that is in control of your day with The Arena App.
Keep reading to find out 3 ways The Arena App can help you.
Plan Your Day The Night Before
Too often we get bogged down with the big picture instead of taking it day by day. Sure, you have to be aware of all projects and commitments, but looking at your task list on a micro level will help you be more productive.
You don’t have to be a professional organizer to plan your day the night before. Instead of feeling overwhelmed by your task list and unsure of where to start, you can make a game plan the night before for the next day. You can read more about planning your day the night before, and some additional productivity tips here by Honey We’re Home.
In The Arena App, you can add the projects and tasks you want to complete for the next day and see how they fit with your other time commitments.
Surprises are going to happen, but controlling the things that you know about will help you out in the long run.
Be Realistic With Your Expectations
Let’s face it: we want to be Superwoman, all the time. But the truth is, there is ONLY so much time in the day, and it’s up to you to make the most of it (Superwoman-style). That means…it’s time to practice those time management skills!
One of the best ways to do this is to know what your commitments are for the day, and how they line up with the time you need to make progress on the projects you are working on. With Arena’s calendar overlay feature, you get an at-a-glance look of your day. This helps you visualize if there is enough time to get everything done, and if not, you can prioritize the things that MUST get done that day. The rest can be scheduled for the following day. Never underestimate the importance of time management.
Stay On Task Using a Mobile Planner
Distractions are everywhere. Whether you work at home, in an office, or at a coffee shop, distractions are unavoidable.
Using a mobile planner will help you stay on task. When you overlay your calendar with your tasks and projects, you can visualize how long you have to work or something. Each project in The Arena App has a timer feature, which you can set for a specific amount of time and then commit to working on that project during that time. This will help you stay focused and serve as a reminder that those distractions can wait.
The Arena App: Daily Planner Will Make You Feel Good About What You Accomplished
It’s important to feel good about what you’ve achieved each day. Even if you don’t get everything done, it’s okay. Arena puts you in control of your day and helps you succeed along the way. The sense of accomplishment and peace of mind at the end of every day is what The Arena App is all about.
Remember, you can’t be Superwoman all day, everyday. But you can always feel good about what you’ve accomplished. Progress, not perfection.
