Becoming a CEO
One of the most important things in your life is going to be how you organize and manage your time. Being a wife and caring for a home can be about as big of a job as a CEO of a company. You both have three important roles to fill:
- Leadership—making the home run effectively.
- Management—making the home run efficiently.
- Innovation—being able to do “new things” improving upon old ways.
The definition of a CEO is:
The leader of an organization(family). This title is given to someone who is occupying the highest position in an organization(family) and is solely responsible for the success or the failure of it.
The definition of time management is:
The act or process of planning and exercising conscious control over the amount of time spent on specific activities, especially to increase effectiveness, efficiency, or productivity. (source Wikipedia)
**please note, yes your husband will be responsible for the home life as well, but majority of the work will rest on your shoulders.
As a teenager, this is an important time of your life to learn this principle as you plan and prepare for your future…..
Be an effective organizer of your time
After living on this earth for 40 years, I have come into contact with many women who run their homes. The ones that do so effectively and easily, have a plan. The ones that struggle with not having enough time to get things done, or the ones whose homes are in disarray most of the time, those are the ones that have not learned to effectively organize their time.
This principle is key for you to learn to be a successful wife and manager of your home.
Another note, that ALL moms, go through seasons in life. We have babies, we have many little ones, we are bedridden in pregnancy so there will be times when the home will be in disarray and things just can’t get done. I am not talking of those times. I was there many of times in my 20 years of marriage and 10 children. My prayer for you is to learn to be an effective manager of your home most of the time. I don’t want you to make excuses your whole life that you just can’t get things done. If you were to work at a career or job outside of the home, your boss would expect you to make the minimal steps to complete a task, and do things effectively and efficiently
