Have you ever needed, wanted, a huge change to happen in your life? Did you ever feel like you were on the brink of something bigger and needed a little push over the edge? Well I may have a way! The gratitude journal is a place for just that – everything you are grateful for. If you can make this seemingly simple book a daily habit for you, there is no doubt in my mind that it will change your life.
I encourage everyone I know to do their gratitude journal in the morning. Think about it… starting… Continue reading
Do you find yourself constantly asking for more time in the day? Are you always running short on the time to do all of the things you need to get done in a week? Many of us have troubles when it comes to time management, so please do not feel like you are the only one!
Time is finite and it is our equalizer. We all only have 24 hours in a day. The thing that sets us apart is what we do with that time, and how we make the most of every second!
Time management is so often… Continue reading
In a recent poll we did of our neighbors we found that the majority of people find their Kitchen Table is their biggest problem area around the home. We want to give you some ideas on how to reclaim your kitchen table again!
Some of the most common items we see on kitchen tables include – mail, food storage, homework, clothes, toys, crafts, and so much more.
Whether you eat every meal at your kitchen table or it is really just there for rare occasions having a clean and clutter free table can make a big difference in your home… Continue reading
Are you constantly in the struggle of too many things to do, not enough time, money, resources, or attention to give?
One thing that many of us struggle with on a regular basis is where our time and attention go. Unfortunately, for many of us, it does not even seem like we are getting to make the choice of where either go. We almost end up becoming victims to our schedules, our activities, responsibilities. Whether you feel chained to your calendar or imprisoned by the 90 million things you are a part of, hopefully you will find a little… Continue reading
The Holidays are wonderful! Good food, great company, and lots of memories to create. But when all is said and done the holidays can be harrowing. New stuff all over the place that you need to find a place for, credit card bills that need to be accounted for and added into the budget, and decorations to take down and stash somewhere for another year.
All of these small little extra tasks add up, becoming overwhelming and before you know it Christmas lights as still up in March. There are general everyday organizing tips that can be applied to… Continue reading
Have you ever sat back and looked at your life, and thought, ” How did I get here?” You had big dreams, massive goals, but somewhere along the way, things did not go as planned. Something happened that set you off-course. Maybe at the time you thought it was just a small adjustment, but it changed your direction exponentially.
If you want to turn 2016 into the year to make forever positive changes in your life, the first step is understanding what you want to stand for and where you want to go. The most empowering thing we can… Continue reading
Do you ever have a to-do list that is 2 pages long (or longer)? Feel like you are busy the entire day, but when you look at your forward motion, realize there was no actual productivity? Far too often we keep ourselves busy. We all have lots of things we HAVE to do, everything is so important and even more urgent. As our world continues to embrace immediate gratification with instant access thanks to technology we have become less and less productive and are transforming more and more “fire-fighters”.
One of the greatest ways we can stop reacting to… Continue reading
Do you have so much stuff in your home, that cozy is beginning to feel cramped? Are you overwhelmed by all of your stuff and just do not know where to start?
Often times we get into these situations because we are constantly bringing in new things to our home — even if they are just “new to us” it is still more stuff coming into the home that we probably do not have space for.
One of the greatest things we can start doing in instituting the “In and Out Rule”.
Simply stated this means for everything that… Continue reading
One of the things that is inherent about responding, is that we did not give the situation or circumstance much thought before it happened. Goals are huge for me in all realms of my life and business. At the top of my vision board are the words that I have used to title this post “Set Goals. Make a Plan. Get Results.” For me this is so powerful because I do it long-term and short-term, as well as daily and for even small projects I am involved in.
As we continue on our journey of trying to stop responding and start being proactive. Last week we talked in more depth about how values play a part and today we will expand on how setting your priorities can make a huge difference.
This week let’s talk about the same three questions we had last week related to values. Why are they important, how do we set them, and where do they come into play with organization?
Why Priorities are so… Continue reading
