Monika Kristofferson is a professional organizer, but she's also just a busy woman like the rest of us. In this episode she shares her tips for managing a busy life as a single mom with two teenaged daughters.
Guarding Your Time
Monika's main tool for managing her busy life is being very selective about what she says yes to. Of course, that means that we have to be willing to say no, and Monika has blogged about how to say no gracefully.
She encourages us to take the time to think about what our goals are and what we really value–this makes it easier to guard our time.
Don't miss the rest of Monika's smart, practical suggestions for managing time so we can accomplish the things that matter most to us.
