Listen with full attention.
This is how I feel when I listen to Lorrie Flem do a presentation.
My life right now is not allowing me to do so.
Maybe yours won’t either.
I decided what I really needed was to take the nuggets that caught my attention and focus on just those.
Lorrie’s messages are so loaded with practical wisdom I would have a list far too long if I wrote it all down. Trust me I have taken notes on her talks, they’re loaded!
This month I was sent the mp3 of Lorrie’s message 12 Simple Time Saving Tips for Mom for review as a Gabby Mom. This means I am giving you my honest opinion on this message I received from Eternal Encouragement.
The 12 simple tips are more like 12 areas where you can save yourself time and therefore stress. I’ve listen 3 times, all while doing something else (one of Lorrie’s tips by the way- multitask when it’s reasonable).
The nuggets I caught were:
- to create a realistic schedule with ALL my responsibilities and buffers
- add approximate times to complete a task when I put it on the “to do” list
- take time to plan, but don’t just plan, do the plan. I don’t know that Lorrie said that last part but I know I must add it for myself.
As with any of the talks I have heard Lorrie give this one would be well worth the investment. She recommends several of her other resources as they relate to the tip she is covering. This is done to offer more resources and detailed information if there is one area you are really struggling in (like I think I need to get the one about building a brain).
I encourage you to visit Eternal Encouragement and look at the resources Lorrie offers. There’s something for every mother, wife, homeschooler and Christian woman.
