You put what where?
As a life time student it feels like keeping up with my things is a constant battle. To make it even more complicated I have 4 little ones ranging from 7 months to ten years of age. I'm always looking for quick and easy ways to constantly keep projects going. From washing 2 loads of clothes every morning to organizing mail as it comes in the house in a mail sorter every step helps make life a little easier.
I was determine to pick my top five time savers. Number one really has nothing to do with the actual process but it is so important for success.
#1 It has to be important to you.. whatever section of you life you feel is out of control ask why you want to do better and let that be your motivation.
#2 Stop the blame game...with six people in our home it's easy to blame someone for things not being done, reverse that energy and start delegating.
#3 Fun moments can be organizational fun moments....while your watching your favorite show you can cut coupons, load the dish washer, mate socks, review home work during commercials.
#4 Put it in writing.... you hear it all the time children need to see a goal chart and be able to check off when things are completed.
#5 Life is not perfect so don't sweat uncompleted task be excited about being closer to your goal.
The latest little quick read I've read is The One- Minute Organizer by Donna Smallin. She has lots of great tips and it is a quick and to the point helpful guide. When you feel like your always running great bust of information always help.
Make getting organized your goal for the holidays. What a way to step into the new year motivated and in control.
