The juggling act

Why Balance is a lie

Today, we were having a discussion in a Facebook group about balance. Most of the people in the group are small business owners trying to find the perfect balance of work, family, faith and community. We have all been told it is achievable and we all feel like failures because we can’t find it. Well, I’m here to tell you a secret…


Do you ever get that feeling that there is not enough time in the day to get everything done? My to-do-list never seems to get shorter. Each time I knock a few things off the list, it feels like there are even more items to add. I’ve got a house to clean, grocery shopping to do, projects for work, mowing, laundry, some flowers to plant, repairs to do and a ton of organizing that needs to be completed.

Today, I’m going to make a list of all those things and just try to start knocking them off. I’m also going to make a list of things that need to be purchased or replaced and a space for things to sell or donate. The organizational journey starts today but I need your help. I need your best cleaning and organizational tips. I need to know how you keep your house in order. I’ve read a ton of books on the subject but none of them have ever gotten me organized or motivated to get organized. I’m sure you guys can do better.

Do you ever get that overwhelming feeling? How do you get past it even when you still have a long to-do-list? I don’t think I’m the only one who has too much list at the end of my day. Come vent with me!
