Procedure checklists are the perfect solution for overwhelmed moms. Checklists are even more helpful when the steps they list out are for bite-sized routines, routines that are not themselves overwhelming or perfectionism, but small and doable.
October’s topic inside Convivial Circle and here on the podcast is procedure checklists. When it’s hard to get started because there’s too much to do, a procedure checklist is the shortcut to momentum you need.
This episode is an excerpt from a member-only mentoring session back in April, when we were working through Sweep and Smile. It’s on bite-sized routines, and bite-sized routines definitely need a procedure checklist.
So, let’s think about how small routines serve us in our housework more than cleaning frenzies do.
Build bite-sized routines:
When we want to do better and we’re trying to do better at homemaking, we get caught up hunting for or trying to create the best, final, once-and-for-all perfect solution.
That dooms us to the boom and bust cycle.
Instead, we need to begin with baby steps and doable routines. Bite-sized routines will help us build true traction in our day-to-day lives.
