Organized Mom on March 30th, 2009

Sometimes you need a real kick in the pants to get going on a project. Ever notice how you find time to clean when company’s coming?

Well, that’s exactly what we did last week. Sister-in-law came over to babysit so we could go out. We spent the day cleaning. We had been planning to anyway, but her arrival gave us a deadline.

No matter how hard I try, I don’t always find the self-motivation I need. Like I may set myself a deadline for a task, but deep down I know it’s a deadline that I have set. And I apparently don’t care so much about my own deadlines. But if someone else needs something, or I have company, or some other outside deadline, I will plan out my time to meet it.

So why do we have so much trouble with our own deadlines and motivation? I’m not sure, but I’m working on it.

In the meantime, I may just need a babysitter every week so hubby and I will attack the house together prior to their arrival. :)
