Remember I said at one time I had seven different planners to organize my life? Yeah, about that.
When I first started working outside the home full time, juggling work, the kids, homeschooling, and all the other parts of my life, it was so overwhelming, I actually burnt out. I ended up so tired, I was ill and depressed — and I wasn't the only one suffering.
I was ready to just quit. All I wanted to do was curl up and go back to bed.
Instead, I stood in my living room having a full-blown meltdown because I was so overwhelmed!
At that moment, I realized I was letting the drive to find the perfect planner get in the way of actually getting control of my life.
The truth was, it's the process of putting together your schedule, not the planning system you use to keep on track, that's important.
Once I let go of the idea of the perfect planner, things started coming together.
