The Familyman

Todd Wilson, Familyman Ministries

This should be short . . . since my idea of a schedule is to bookend the day with waking up and going to bed. But my wife has different plans, and she loves to go into the new school year with a finely detailed schedule, breaking her school day into small, bite-size, time chunks.

Here’s the deal: I know that by lunch time on the first day, I will find my wife sitting on our green chair staring off into the distance. I’ll ask, “How was the first day of school?” but I know what she’ll say before she answers.

“I can’t do it; my schedule doesn’t work.”

That’s how schedules work. You write one out, throw it out, write another . . . tweak and tweak until you finally get a good one–one that works. Of course the school year will almost be over by the time you get to that point.

But that’s the way real life works, and that’s okay.

So don’t be surprised and threaten to give up just because your first schedule doesn’t work. Get back in there, plan another schedule . . . and then tweak, tweak, tweak!!! Take comfort that you’re not alone.

Be real,
