If I am being completely honest, I suck at time management. I have brought so many planners to not use them at all. I even attempted to download a calendar on my phone, but it was still a fail.
If you throw in one extremely active toddler that has a mind of their own, well, terrible fail.
This year, I have made it my top priority to manage my time a lot better, and I feel like I have gotten a little bit better. With the COVID-19 pandemic happening, Chlo will no longer be attending daycare, so we’re back to square one.
On a side note, she only attended daycare for legit three days before the crisis happened.
Anywho, my daughter will always be my top priority, no matter what I am doing in life. However, I am finding that with me building a business and trying to stay sane, I am missing important moments with her.
Chlo, like any child, wants all of their parent’s attention. However, sometimes that’s just not possible. In my case, I noticed that sometimes I am not 100% present with her. For example, when she’s coloring in her book. I’m physically in her room with her and watching her from the side of my eye, but I am mentally creating content for my IG page or creating a promotion to attract more people. Coloring may be simple, but it is a time to bond with her.
My child will only remain little for so long. Yes, I am building a company that will help her in the long haul. However, she is just as important, if not more important than my company. I decided to become more proactive about managing my time and planning my days, so I can enjoy those simple moments with my kid.
What about you!?
