On the Wednesday podcast, I get to talk with members of the Organize 365® community as they share the challenges, progress, missteps and triumphs along their organizing journey. You can see and hear transformation in action. I look forward to helping YOU learn the skill of organization, too!
In this episode, I introduce you to Kristen M. a mom of three, a teacher, podcaster, and a teacher-prenuer. How does she do it all? Kristen shared that it started with the Sunday Basket®. She knew she had to get her paper under control first. Routines are so important and without her knowing it, she had established an afternoon routine of doing 15 min of paperwork between the end of her work day and when her children would be home. Once she experienced the magic of the Sunday Basket®, she quickly layered system upon system and now is a well rounded Organize 365® member!
Listen in as we discuss the different uses for Sunday Basket®s throughout the year. Kristen used one of her Sunday Basket®s to organize her daughter’s senior year and now her daughter will be going off to college with the Launch Program and Binder. And she will use it differently again closer to the holidays. Hear how Kristen’s children love the magic of the Sunday Basket® too, mind you one is only 8 years old!. The Sunday Basket® helps her to be more present because she is not trying to remember everything. And she can stay aware of her children’s desires due to them contributing to the Sunday Basket® index cards.
Kristen also shared the magic of the Sunday Basket® through her eyes. Once she got the hang of it, it was so freeing. Kristen was already organized so why did she need new systems? The reality is the new systems were freeing up her working memory. Instead of trying to remember everything all of the time, now it was physically in her external brains known to us as Sunday Basket®s. She doesn’t have to remember how the school year curriculum went. She just refers to the Sunday Basket® and knows what she can change or do better for the upcoming school year. She uses her different slash pockets to organize things for her podcast, “The Modern Math Teacher” and her teacher business within each “external brain.” She’s impressed when she looks back and can see all the impact she has been able to have due to the physical systems of her external brains, the Sunday Basket®.
