As a teacher and a mom of 5 kids, I get it. If you are like me, your "To Do" list is long and never ending. It can be overwhelming after awhile to even look at it. And.. getting all those things done - forget it, right?!
Well, here's the cure.
Get more accomplished each and every day with this simple fix.

- Turn your long list into tasks on your calendar. Give everything a tentative date.
- Then, take 5 minutes to make a small list for the next day each night before you go to bed.
- Put on one cleaning chore and 6 other items on your list, no more. Each item should be a specific, detailed, "micro task" (think bite-sized).
For example: If I put "make phone calls" on my list or "call Doctor", it might happen. If I put "Call Dr. Russell- RE: appoint. for Bob's knee (phone number)" on my list, it will happen. Why? I made it easily do-able in the midst of a busy day.

All you teacher moms (and dads), take time to get your "to dos" at home under control this summer. Once Back-to-School hits, you'll be so glad you did. Besides, it feels great and reduces stress to accomplish something every day and to see that list shrink!
