So many things to do, so little time. At this day, a lot may boast about doing a lot of things altogether like playing different devices and watching the TV, while doing a bunch of homework. But despite everybody multitasking, nobody can argue that among the different kinds of people across all generations, only the mothers have mastered the art of multitasking. This is helped further with the rise of items like swaddle blankets which make the multitasking so much easier!
They said that once a woman becomes a mom, she gets an upgrade. She will turn into mommy mode and will inevitably learn how to juggle endless combinations of chores, teamed up with crying babies, persistent children, a career, and a whole house to manage. Multitasking to moms has become both a blessing and a curse.
So how do moms do it without going down with the pressure, compromising anything or predisposing something to error?
The answer: Priorities
A mom knows by instinct which tasks they should focus their energy on. A mother can autopilot the main chore. For instance, before dinner, a mother doesn’t just cook. During the preparation interval, like waiting for the water to boil or for the food to a simmer, the mom is wise enough to squeeze in other pending tasks. She can empty the garbage bins, set the table, tend to the babies, and answer emails. It may seem that mothers’ workload never stops, but in reality, they are just productive enough to juggle pendant chores. Because a mother knows what to do first and give an important chore the focus it deserves.
A multitasker-supermom can handle everything by proper planning. This won’t mean interruptions won’t happen periodically. But a priority-centered plan helps moms manage the most important things first while taking the anticipated needs into consideration.
Truly by focus and priority, mommies can transform chaos into great family moments.
