5 Tools For Christian Women To Conquer Their Day and Be Amazingly Productive

Does it feel like every day whizzes by faster than the day before it? And like our to-do lists get longer and longer no matter how many items we check off of it?

As Christian women, we want to be a good steward of the time God has given us.

We know how precious it is and it can be frustrating when we aren’t able to use time as wisely as we know we should.

I’ve always felt like time was getting away from me.

Like I never had enough time. Like I was always running behind and always late.

But lately, I’ve been really getting into learning about productivity, time management, and goal setting.

It’s really helped me look at time in a different way and I’ve made some changes that have really made a difference in my life and I’ll be sure to share some of that in upcoming posts.

I really hope that my tips will help.

Since learning more about productivity, I’ve been on time (more often than not), I have more time to work on my blogs and pursue my goals, and I feel like my time with my family and friends in more enjoyable because I don’t always feel so behind.

If any of that sounds like a good deal to you and you are intrigued then be checking back in the next few weeks as I will be talking a lot more about these subjects.

In fact, I do have a little freebie in my resource library called Chaotic to Calm where I share a bit about my morning routine hack that has revolutionized my morning routine.

No joke ya’ll. My morning routine is like night and day from how it was a year ago and this little guide is just a small taste of what I do now.

Anywho, if you’re feeling like your days are passing you by and your to-do list is stagnant and you don’t have a clue what productivity is let alone how to improve it then you are going to need some tools in your arsenal.

If you’re ready to have some amazingly productive days with less stress and overwhelm then you need these five tools or resources.

5 Tools For Christian Women To Conquer Their Day and Be Amazingly Productive

1) Daily Planners

Why do you need a daily planner? If you feeling like you can’t manage your day and you go to bed every night feeling super frustrated by how stressed and overwhelmed you feel you need a planner.

If you end your day thinking, “Lord, what went wrong? Why does it seem like I didn’t get anything done again today?

Why do I feel like I’m spinning my wheels and never getting anything accomplished?

Why am I late all the time? Why did I miss that appointment?” you need a planner. You need a daily planner so that you can see your day laid out before you.

You need one centralized location where you can see “Okay, the kids get out of school at 2:30. Susie has soccer practice at 4:30, bible study is at 6:30.”

When you have your day scheduled in black and white, you gain clarity.

Now instead of the times for this rehearsal and this appointment and this practice all rumbling around in your head bumping into each other and getting all mixed up, you have all the times right there in your planner, lined up, in black and white where you can see it.

And depending on the kind of person you are, you can use a paper planner, an editable pdf planner or a digital planner of some sort.

There are several in the Ultimate Bundles Productivity pack that are really beautiful (I bought the bundle myself so I have inside information on that). But more on that Productivity bundle later.

2) Trello

My entire life is in this one app called Trello. It’s too the point where, if for some reason the Trello company went under and they stopped supporting the app, I would slightly panic.

Why? Because my brain is on that app.

Everything that I use to have to remember and recall over and over are on that app.

I got so frustrated one time by all the things that I had to remember that I searched for an app that would help me not have to use my brain so much.

I tried a few apps and once I found Trello, my search was over (Asana is another that other people recommend but I personally wasn’t drawn to it).

If you find yourself forgetting stuff (which is basically my life in a nutshell), then this app will let you put all of your “memories” so to speak into nice organized boards and lists.

When you first open it, you might find it a little jarring but don’t worry. There are plenty of tutorials that you can find on how to use it.

There’s even courses that you can take on how to use it. One is called Organize Your Life with Trello by Cara Harvey & Elisa Giorgio.

It was created with busy moms in mind so if that’s you, you should take a look.

3) Systems

Okay so what do I mean by systems? Don’t let the word scare you. What I mean by system is this: There are certain things that you do over and over again.

You get the mail. You cook dinner, You make a budget. You make a grocery list.

You get the picture.

Well, if you feel like you are recreating the wheel every time you do these things then you need to create a system or a rather a systematic way of doing this mundane task so that it just feels like something you can do blindfolded because it’s so routine.

Or put another way, the system is just the simple step by step process for getting this routine task done.

The system will help you get it done faster and more efficiently. Hopefully, that makes sense.

This leads me to my next tool.

4) Checklists

Using checklists makes things so much easier. You just glance at a checklist and see whether or not a task is done and move on.

They are such a blessing. There are tons of free checklists that you can print from Pinterest so definitely search for free checklist printables for the tasks you need to be done more efficiently.

5) Goal Planner

Yes, you might have a daily planner and that’s great. However, sometimes there are things that we want to do that can’t get done in a day.

These are projects, parties to plan, books to write, blogs to run and manage, or anything else that can’t get done in one day and has multiple moving parts.

That’s where a goal planner comes in.

You use these to see both an overview of the goal and all the small details and steps that need to happen in order to make that goal a reality.

 

Not Sure Where To Get These Tools Or What Your Next Step Should Be?

 

Maybe you are starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel of the overwhelm train but you don’t know where you can get these tools.

The last thing you want to do is traipse all over the internet looking for these planners and looking at reviews to see which ones are worth it and which ones aren’t.

And then you might have to wait for a planner to ship to your house.

Or you might have to make a trip to the store to look for a planner (only to find out its not in stock even though online it said it was).

My advice?

There’s a way to get your choice of daily planners, goal planners, checklists, and systems all in one place and for one low price.

It’s really cool.

It’s called the Ultimate Bundle Productivity pack.
