Simplify + Live in 2015

Macro Image

I’m writing again! For over a year, I’ve been involved in a program for my day job that has consumed me with wonder, challenge, excitement, pain, frustration, and growth. I’ve been faced with tough calls, had my ideas come to fruition, and seen way too many midnight oil burning nights (and weekends). Oh, and we moved to Washington, then bought a house and moved again. Needless to say, writing has been a tough one to prioritize. Despite all the life changes, the job demands have actually been the most time consuming and I’m anxious to get back into my personal life outside of work.

I had these grand visions that when I moved to Seattle, I’d write every day about my adventures, home projects, and simplified life tips and tricks, but I’ve barely even had a chance to explore!

I’m excited to say that I’m finally turning a corner in my working life in which I don’t always have to say “yes” and I don’t always have to be the one to perform everything that has to be done. Hard lesson to learn for someone like me (a controlling perfectionist; self-proclaimed!), but I’m finally getting there.

This means that I plan to carve out some intentional time to write. In my role on the program, I had to write process for the entire team. Everything from “do this, then that” to detailed checklists. I enjoyed writing for the team as one of my responsibilities but I’m excited to have the chance to share on this blog again in much the same format but with a greater (and more fun) reach.

I’m kicking off 2015 (in mid-May?!) focusing on only two categories: Simplify + Live.
> Simplify is anything from time management to organization in any area of life. For anyone who wants to be more productive at work or around the home to spend more time with loved ones, these posts are for you!
> Live is anything from our adventures in Seattle to general life awesomeness.

My word of the year in 2014 was “Simplify” and I was so successful in that effort, letting go of lots of stuff and simplifying my routines and life. I have even more ideas for improvement to implement through this current year.

My 2015 word is “Calm” and getting focused again on simplifying my life and actually living it always calms me.

Stay tuned…I’m so excited for what this year has to bring!

productivity for working moms

welcome!

I'm Jessica!

I used to glorify "busy." If I wasn't busy, I wasn't doing enough. But when I became a mama, my entire outlook shifted.

 

The only way out involved a complete overhaul of my time, money & communication systems.

 

Today, I'm doing LESS and achieving more.

It's a productivity dream!

I'm still learning (and always will be!), but my purpose here is to help YOU achieve this level of space in your life too.
