Full-time moms know, better than just about anybody, how to keep to a schedule. Because they know if they don’t, a miniature world war 3 could break out. And the chaos that would happen could lead to panic in every room. So, a day in the life of a mom can be a model of precision timing. At least if they’re doing it right.
And here’s how a day in the life of a mom can look.
At 5 or 6 a.m. the alarm goes off. And don’t dare hit that snooze button. Put on something that resembles clothes, make the bed (if hubby isn’t still sleeping), head to kitchen, and start something that resembles breakfast.
Then, wake up the kids. And “nudge” them into their own morning routines. And if you’ve never had kids, you might not realize how difficult it can be to get sleepy-eyed boys and girls to start moving. Plus, you’ve gotta make sure they understand they can’t wear their Spiderman or Frozen pajamas to school.
And then, the rest of the day looks something like this…
7:00 – 9:00 a.m. – Get everyone to school and off to work. And run errands like groceries, banking, post office, etc.
9:30 a.m. – If there are toddlers, this is a good time to take them outside. To the park, back yard, etc.
11:00 a.m. – Lunch, a little reading, and nap time for younger kids.
11:30 a.m. – Load and start the dishwasher. Make the beds. Dust and vacuum. And clean the bathroom(s).
1:00 p.m. – Grab lunch for yourself before you wake up the rugrats and spend time with them on creative projects.
2:00 p.m. – Head out to pick up older kids from school
3:00 p.m. – Coordinate the timing for dance lessons, gymnastics, martial arts, ball games, etc.
5:00 p.m. – Go home and prepare the evening meal while the kids burn off some energy outside or inside.
5:30 p.m. – Serve dinner.
And there’s still hours to go.
For homework, bath times, kitchen cleanup, some time with the hubby. And other family time activities.
Then mom finally gets to bed to rest up and start it all over tomorrow morning.
So, imagine if you’ve got all that to do AND you wanna start your own business. Yikes! It could feel like there’s absolutely no way. Not enough hours in the day. But still, a lot of moms find a way. And I can tell you this. They don’t do it by accident.
And I know, from experience, how it can feel. That’s why I built my RondaReady System. To help moms (and other hard-working people) who wanna start a business, get things going better and faster. It’s all about System Thinking. And it’s basically the ONLY way anyone can even remotely have a chance at success.
