Planning Big Events

Beyond all the fun parts of DIYing aspects of your weddings, there's also just the nitty-gritty legwork that goes into ensuring that you've thought through every last detail to make sure you have everything you need at the event and that everything runs smoothly.

I'm reminded of this process as I prepare to attend my first community event as a representative of Magnolia Montessori For All. We'll be at the Austin Earth Day Festival this Sunday. You should stop by if you're in town!

We'll be helping children plant lima bean seeds in recycled cups (labeled with stickers that have our website). We'll also have a Montessori puzzle about the parts of a seed and a book about seeds. I made a plan to ensure I thought of everything, but now I actually need to execute the plan!

I made the plan by visualizing everything that would happen that day and then making a list of what we would need to have with us. The visualization process also helped me generate a few more action items related to my list, such as e-mailing volunteers instructions to make sure they're on the same page.

There's lots to do, but I need to stay focused on taking it one step at a time so I don't get stressed.

REMINDER: The last Purposeful Conception Course: Preparing Your Mind, Body, and Life for Pregnancy starts May 7. Register today! We'd love to have you join us!
