On my way home from Mexico, I missed my connecting flight due to customs taking a looooooong time. I was frustrated, of course, but took advantage of the situation–I purchased a book at the airport bookstore in order to get some insight to share with you!
There were many suggestions that the author made, but the most important thing I took away from it was to make a plan.
A plan doesn’t always have to stay the same. It doesn’t have to be perfect. But when you make a plan, you have thought ahead, and thinking ahead gives us structure.
Another tip? Get the kids involved. You can talk with even the littlest kids in your family about your plan, even if they can’t be part of the entire planning process just yet.
Planning is going to look different for every family. Try mapping out your next steps (for organizing or otherwise) with your kids, spouse, or just for yourself. See what happens and how it helps you reach your goals.
