I started Career Mom Community (CMC) out of a desire to see purpose-driven women of faith balance, grow, and succeed in all areas of their lives. I believe that moms have extreme potential to be successful when equipped with the knowledge, tools and base of support to do so. Read more about CMC here!

Today’s post is about one of my favorite topics, planning! As purpose- driven women, I am sure you wear multiple hats and have various endeavors. Planning is an essential practice to add to your working mom success toolkit. It serves as:
- An organizational tool
- An accountability system
- A growth tracker
It is also a great way to establish routines, maintain goal momentum, and keep households running as smoothly as possible.
Here are 3 quick tips to help you plan more effectively
Start with prayer. It is important to anchor yourself to something bigger than you. There’s also wisdom and revelation that you will receive in your prayer and Bible study time that is beneficial to your life.
Plan with consideration of the interconnected pieces of your life. Purpose is fluid and we have to be prepared for the journey as purpose-driven women of faith. As you evolve and grow, so too will your task and responsibilities. Consider all things when you are planning your day, weeks, and months.
Leave room for flexibility
Listen, God can shake things up sometimes, after all his plans are higher than ours. Not to mention, as mothers, we must leave room for life’s shifts. Having children is unpredictable no matter what age they are. Understanding the need for flexibility can help to minimize frustration and help you to pivot in real time.
Leave room for growth
The goal of Career Mom Community is to help women to balance, grow, and succeed. I encourage the women I coach to not get so caught up on their plans that they miss opportunities to stretch themselves beyond their comfort zones in various seasons of life. In addition, it’s important to account for learning time in our daily routines. Don’t forget to plan and prioritize yourself in your plans.
