Several years ago my eldest daughter began suffering from a debilitating and mysterious health condition and my life was thrown into overdrive. While working, volunteering and taking care of my family I felt stressed out by all the things I need to do, think about and keep track of on a day-to-day basis. It was TOO MUCH. I craved a way to stay focused only on what was essential in my life and filter out everything else.
In an effort to solve my own problem of relentless mental overload, I grabbed some simple home office supplies and over time, a surprisingly simple, yet effective approach to prioritization began to unfold along with a new tool. Not only was I able to figure out what was going on with my daughter, but I also felt much more in control of my busy life. I knew I had to share my secret with others.
In 2015, I started a company dedicated to helping individuals create space in their minds so they can focus on what matters most in their lives. It's called The Little Big Things, LLC. I chose that name because I believe it is often the littlest things that make the biggest impact.
Dashboarding™ is the name of my organizational practice and My Dashboard® is the name of my unique planners.
