522 - Lisa's Organization Story 2007
The year was 2007. And I was ROADKILL. Unexpected life events had run me over. Divorce had unexpectedly hit my family. My father was in poor health. I was raising young children with medical diagnoses. I had attended one HUNDRED and ten doctor’s appointments. I came unglued. I reached my breaking point. There I was, standing in my kitchen, not making sense and tapping on a cabinet. Greg swooped in and got the kids out of the house. I stood there pleading, “You’ve got to get it together, Lisa!”  I went upstairs to my room to figure out why I felt falling apart. At the time, I had a physical planner. I flipped backward through my planner and realized a pattern. I was spending so much time at doctor’s appointments. I started to tally it up and found that I had gone to 110 doctor’s appointments in the past year. Doctor’s appointments are not only time-consuming, but they are expensive. So at the same time, I had become a “jill of all trades.” I ran my Creative Memories business, cleaned houses, organized, tutored, worked for Scholastic book fairs, and did several other direct sales-related jobs.  No wonder I was falling behind and apart. When it rains, it pours. My Sunday Basket® became my umbrella. I was overwhelmed. And I was being pushed to new limits. But I wasn’t disorganized. I cannot even imagine what this phase of my life would have looked like if I had not already had my Sunday Basket® system and routine in place. I was not home much during this phase of life, but I always had my Sunday Basket® with me. This meant I could still be productive while waiting at the doctor’s office or in the car pick-up line. This helped me keep up when life started moving way too fast. EPISODE RESOURCES: Did you enjoy this episode?
