Practicing What You Preach

While checking out YouTube I ran across this video from Bob The Teacher, who makes an interesting point and gives a little history lesson as well.

The thing that we should consider as we run our home businesses and households is this: Are we practicing what we preach?

I was challenged with this yesterday as I did a teleseminar and gave the time management tip of “prepare your weekly meal and shopping list at the same time and let it center around one item”.  As an example: buy ground beef and serve spaghetti, chili and tacos for the week.

To be fair, this is something I practiced for about 8 weeks in our life; but I felt hypocritical when I taught it because it’s a great idea and a time management practice that I should be utilizing right now. However, at this stage in our lives my husband does the shopping and usually just runs out and buys something for a few days without consulting me.  Yes it’s financially ludicrous, however it’s 3 less responsibilities for me (trying to figure out what to eat, writing up the list, and shopping) so I’ve let it slide for several months now.

Wow! As I typed this out I realized that I am practicing what I preach. I also preach about going with the flow during whatever season your family is in.  This is where my family is right now, in terms of time management and it works.  Maybe in a couple of months the family, kids and household will be in a different season and I’ll utilize the “prepare menu” time management tip.

I’ll post Bob The Teacher’s video anyway…because he’s cute.

How To Go After Your Dreams

jennyisemanNursing her cranky baby “almost 24 hours a day!” Jenny Isenman wrote funny articles about him just to stay sane. She wanted to be a published writer and so she kept that in mind as she wrote her articles in columnist style.  She also used Facebook to help her keep sane and quickly realized the power of social media!

So she started Suburban Jungle and “harassed” her Facebook followers to go read it. She went after her dreams.

In less then a year, she has a bi-weekly column  at IVillage and is a contributing writer for Sunsentinel and Citymommy.com. She’s also featured in the book See Mom Run
