Juggling a full-time job, children, exercise, friendship and a healthy relationship with your better is among the challenging things that you will have to do as an adult. The thing is that those very organized people that you see and admire were not born that way, it is something that they had to learn to do. When you learn the art of juggling the adult responsibilities and the daily routines that you actually have then you will be left with more alone time. As any Life Skill Instructor will tell you, there are a few basics that you will have to pin down.
From the play dates of the children to the dates with the friend, a big part of being an adult is actually remembering all the dates. Make sure that you write the events and the important dates somewhere whether on the diary or on the mobile phone calendar. For the activities that you want to do before the day ends like getting the milk, write them and pin them some place that you will see and remember before the end of the day. Making a list at the beginning of the day and ticking off the goals that you have achieved is a way that you can tell if the schedule that you have is actually working.
Make time for your personal time as you schedule. I know that you have a lot to do in 24 hours but your time should be among them. The other thing is clearing the mess that might be in your house of the things that you do not need. There is no need of you renting a storage unit for the things that you do not actually need.
Being a responsible adult includes the fact that you are able to stick to the plans if you actually commit to them. Do not think for one moment that there is anything wrong with saying no because this is actually better than giving excuses. In fact, this shows that you are responsible and able to choose where your attention lies. Last but not least, be consistence and hence reliable because this is what organized adults do. Showing regard to people’s time will show that you are responsible and care about other people. A full grown adult that has absolutely no regards for people’s lives and do stuff like show up on a meeting late without apology is not a responsible one.
