    Hey there success amama we are on module five, and phase two. So we just talked about
    starting up setting the calendar, whether setting up your calendar, whether you picked paper
    or digital.
    Patricia Sung 00:16
    Now we're going to assess what you have. What are you doing right now? Before I touch on
    that, just as a side note, a lot of people ask about like work and calendar and personal
    calendar, if you are working, do you keep them together separate? Either one is okay. What I
    would ask is, are you clearly separating work and home life, then you would want to have two
    separate counters that make more sense. If you are not, then I would combine them together.
    Patricia Sung 00:44
    So as an example, when I was teaching, very clear separation, my job was at the school, when
    I'm home, I'm home. Right, it was granny grading papers, but it wasn't any appointments that I
    was going to add home, outside of school hours. So it's a very clear separation. And so I had a
    separate work calendar and a separate home calendar. Whereas now I work from home, and
    working in like the mom cracks. And so everything's mixed together. And it's a lot more in
    meshed. So I keep everything in the same calendar, I just color code them separately. That's
    what works for me. But again, it's whatever makes sense for you. If having two separate things
    to keep up with sounds terrible, don't do it. But together, if trying to combine those feels
    uncomfortable, keep them separate, either one is fine, it matters more what fits your brain and
    what's going to make sense for you.
    Patricia Sung 01:33
    Okay, so in assessing what you have, you are going to gather up. Right now it's like kind of like

  2. your research phase, if you will, I want you to gather up all the calendars that are involved in
    your life, school calendars, daycare calendars, any kind of extracurricular activities, sports
    storytime, at the library, family events, any schedules that you are keeping up with, I want you
    to pull them all together so that you have them in one place as we do the next step, because
    you'll need those all in phase three as well. So we're going to pull all that together. And then
    we're going to remind ourselves, phase or sorry, step one of our process is writing everything
    down. So you're gonna keep this next to you as you take a look at your calendars. This is all the
    questions we're asking ourselves as we get ready.
    Patricia Sung 02:26
    And what I want you to do is for your activity is look at your calendar for the next week to two
    weeks. And think about do you do these things that are on the previous slide? All those
    questions? Are you writing down? The Who, what, when, where, how items? What are the
    things that you don't write down? What are the things that are missing? Look for patterns and
    things that you both do well, and the things that you don't write down.
    Patricia Sung 02:54
    And then I want you to jot down those patterns that will help you assess like, Okay, I'm really
    great at writing down my work things, but I'm not so great at write down my personal things,
    that's fabulous, because that tells me you already have those skills, you're employing them at
    work. So we can just take those and apply them in your personal stuff. Or, Hey, I'm really really
    good at writing down my appointments, but I forgot to write down the addresses. Well, that's
    great for anything that you know, don't automatically just know how to get to, you got a little
    mental note of Alright, I need to make sure that I'm putting down the address for that hospital
    that I've never been to for my colonoscopy, what have you.
    Patricia Sung 03:30
    So this is a pretty I would say probably five, maybe 15 minutes, depending on how much
    hunting you have to do for your stuff. You may be on the larger, longer end of finding all those
    calendars and then just do a quick skim. That should be like a two minute thing of looking
    through and being like, what am I what am I doing? What am I doing well, what I want to work
    on, so that you're prepared for when we go into step three of actually putting everything in,
    you kind of know Hey, this is where I'm, this is where I want to work on things and give yourself
    a little pat on the back. Good job for the things that you were doing. Wow. All right. Remind
    yourself of your why. And I will talk to you in just a minute for phase three.
