Do you have a PC? I’m a PC person.
I know nothing about Apple products except for iPhones, iPad, and iPods.
PC’s have a program built into the windows operating system called “Defragment and Optimize Drives”. From my limited understanding, when a computer is being used it sometimes saves information randomly on the drives. These small pieces of data saved in the non-optimal places slow down the system. It doesn’t happen all at once, but bit by bit the system degrades. When the defragment program is run, it slowly looks at the memory drives and rearranges and optimizes the saved data. It’s a slow process unless you do it often, it searches for errors and at the end tells you what changes were made.
I’m here to say I need to defragment my life.
It’s full of all the right things, maybe too many right things. I need to pause and rearrange and delete error clusters.
I notice my operating speed slowing down, I feel stretched too thin. Data is saved in the wrong places, my time is spent compensating.
Instead of my time being used to create memories, enjoy people, and do the good stuff in life.
So for the month of May, I’m showing up here to assess, defragment, and optimize. You can do it too, I can’t be the only one who feels slowed and stretched. I can’t wait to go through this with you, I know that together as moms and women we can show up and be more focused on the things that are best.
Here’s the plan so you can join along, I’ll add the links when the posts go live.
