As a work at home mom, I am really lucky that I don’t have a boss looking over my shoulder.
Some days just don’t go according to plan. Things can get a little sketchy when you are juggling kids, housework and a business.
So a post titled “Should You Get A Raise?” on another WAHM’s blog caught my eye. Beth uses a tactic she calls “minute mapping” to keep her day under control. She says:
I have a chart that starts at 7 Am until 11Pm. It is in 15 min. increments. I map out my day to the minute… I map a shower in and all grooming, breakfast, calls, playing and cleaning… I run my business like I am working for someone else, that’s the mind set that helps me stay on task. Every so often I ask myself if I were working outside the home would my boss give me a raise. If I answer that question with an honest no I rethink my map and get moving!
Personally, not only wouldn’t I be getting a raise – some days I might get fired!
Thanks for the tip, Beth.
Whether you are a stay at home mom, a working outside of the home mom or a work at home mom, getting everything done is always a challenge.
