Notice when you're busyworking

Hey Mama! This is Robin Camarote with your Working Mom Tip of the Day.    

Doing first things first means knowing your priorities and working in that order. We all know this but still don't do it.  Get more aware about when you're going to easy, busy-work kind of tasks on your "to do" list instead of focusing on what's most important. Acknowledge to yourself what you're feeling when you do that. Are you avoiding something? For me, opting for busywork is often one way I avoid the fear and uncertainty associated with my more important goals. For today, the tip is to just be more aware of when you're doing this by asking yourself, "Is this the most important thing for me to be doing right now?" each time you start a new task.

Thanks for listening. You got this! For more, head over to my blog at
