Hi. I’m Brenda. Welcome!
Planning Your Time is the place to help busy women find ways to get that to-do list done and still have time for themselves.
While I’m a grandma now, I remember those crazy days of raising three kids, running from here to there, trying to remember everything, and then get it all done.
I had one memorable Christmas Eve (after midnight, so more like early Christmas Day), when I realized that I had to feed ten people a Christmas dinner in just a few hours, and I had literally nothing in my refrigerator!
Did you know that it’s not possible to buy Christmas dinner at CVS?
I found that out the hard way.
That’s when I started changing my ways, learned to manage my time, and start using a planner to write things down instead of trying to keep it in my head.
I’ve learned a lot since then, and if I ever forget how busy moms are, I just have to look to my daughter and her life for a reminder.
Some Things You Might Like to Know
First, I have ADHD. I was diagnosed when I was 42.
My husband and all three kids have it as well. Maybe you can imagine how crazy our house was when the kids were younger; maybe not.
The reason that I mention it is because people with ADHD have more trouble than most people when it comes to time management.
And because I desperately needed to learn about making time work for me, I studied everything I could. I’m kind of a nerd about it, actually.
For several years I worked in Learning Assistance at a community college in Michigan, which is where I’m from.
Since I was also an ADD Coach, I helped many of our students learn to manage their time more effectively and be more organized. (Another nerdy thing I love.)
Let Me Help You
Life is too short and too precious to waste on crossing things off your to-do list.
Of course, things need to get done, but you need time for yourself as well.
I learned that the hard way this year, and I can’t stress enough how important time for you and your self-care is.
I’m big on mental health and self-care, as well as creativity.
Let me show you some ways to:
- Prioritize what needs to be done
- Focus on your goals
- Find time for yourself and loved ones
- Take better care of you
I can’t wait to get to know you!
