If you come from a broken home or a very large, close family, you probably have had a few holidays of bouncing around from place to place… If you are new to the multi-house holiday you are in luck!
Let me first explain why I am so good at these things, then I will let you in on some of my tips on how to make this jammed packed day run more smoothly for you and everyone else you are dragging along with you.
Some of you may already know that when I was 2.5 my… Continue reading
Are you already planning your New Year’s Resolutions? Have you decided that next year will be THE YEAR! Change is going to happen, it will stick!
We spend all Holiday Season hyping ourselves up for the big changes we are going to make. The new life we will create for ourselves. We cut ourselves slack in so many directions because when it is all over we will make the big changes. We will get our act in gear. Become the people we were always meant to be.
Then New Years rolls around, we try to take on way more than… Continue reading
Have you ever struggled with getting stuck in moving forward because you needed everything to be just right?
Maybe you stayed at a job too long? Are you sticking out a relationship because it will be too difficult financially to go it alone? Perhaps you haven’t started a project because you don’t know where to start or not sure what you need?
Often we find ourselves in a holding pattern waiting for perfection to strike before we take action. We freeze up in anticipation or fear of failing, doing something wrong, or looking silly. When we act like this,… Continue reading
Often times we let life happen to us. Sometimes it is because these things happen, we get busy, family members get sick, work is too demanding, etc. Sometimes, however, it is because we do not know any better.
I am here to help you know better so you can take control of your home and life — when life allows it.
One of the most helpful things I have seen put into place for my clients and others is the Command Center. By setting up Command Central in your home you take away a lot of the excuses, a lot… Continue reading
How often do you take time for goal setting? Is it an annual thing? Perhaps you do it quarterly? Monthly, weekly, daily? Where do you fall in with your goals?
Some people, like me, LOVE setting, chasing after, and accomplishing goals. Others do not enjoy anything about goals. And then there is a whole host of people in between.
So what is it that we are supposed to do with our goals? How are we supposed to set them? What do we do when we accomplish them?
Goal setting can be fun, simple, and rewarding. However, it can also be… Continue reading
Setting up systems is by far one of the most important and best benefits of getting organized. It is especially wonderful when you have already been tracking your time. When we track our time it can be monumental. It helps to see where we are wasting time, where we can be more efficient and effective, and how setting up routines and systems can benefit us.
Often times in time tracking we tend to see patterns — good or bad — that need some addressing. The negative patterns we need to learn what creates them and how to break them.… Continue reading
As many of you have been following I am putting myself through my own time management process, and well, it is going a bit slowly because one of the most important things you need to do is track your time. I had tried multiple options for daily time tracking and came up short. Then I was gone for about 3 weeks, which always requires another week to get back into the swing of things. Alas! I believe I have figured out the way that works for me!
I have created a template for one day from 12-12 and printed it… Continue reading
Hello!! How are you?!?!
It has been a wonderfully eventful last month around Time Order Purpose Organizing. First, please let us apologize for having not updated you sooner, but we are here now, and want you to be able to share in all of the fun.
Part of the reason we have been missing in action the last few weeks was that we were off becoming a nation wide company! After officially serving clients in Boston and Connecticut we can boast a national company claim. This is super exciting it opens a lot of doors for us to help more… Continue reading
Storage closet organization seems funny to talk about as an organizer. You would think that I would have absolutely no need for a storage closet. This is not the case. Of course, my closet is small, and there is a good amount of room left in it. Plus, everything in the closet has a use or purpose.
To me a storage closet is a closet specifically used for less used or accessed items. Also, it is often not in the main areas of the home. For example, my storage closet is located outside of my condo.
What is… Continue reading
Sometimes practicing what you preach is easier said than done. Over the last couple weeks I have had every intention to tracking time, but I have yet to find the best way for me to do it continuously.
This gave me the brilliant idea, that if I, the organizer, can’t seem to do it, how can people a little less structured manage this seemingly simple task. Therefore, I want to share with you the ways that I tried to track my time and some ideas I have moving forward. Hopefully, you’ll be able to take some of those ideas… Continue reading
