In a previous post, we examined the reasons for creating routine in your schedule. This month I’ll give you some practical tips on how to create your weekly schedule.
There’s no universal cure-all for disorganization. Despite the international sensations that some tidying gurus have sparked, the truth is there’s no one method applicable to every single situation. But diverse needs aside, there’s one common issue at the core of nearly all disorganization: Clutter. This infographic from MakeSpace shows how much clutter can ruin your life – on a psychological, physical, relationship, professional, and financial level.
So you’ve tried to help your messy kids be more organised so that you could stop arguing over clutter and tardiness and restore a more harmonious atmosphere at home, but haven’t got much luck so far. Let me guess… You’ve tried to appeal to their common sense, it hasn’t worked. You’ve tried to threaten and remove privileges, it has worked for a while but it all started all too soon again… So how?! Below are the 5 most common mistakes I see parents make – and have caught myself making at times!! – when it comes to trying to get their messy kids more organised and what can be done instead.
Can’t fall asleep at night because you keep going through your list of to-do’s in your head to make sure you won’t forget anything? Finding your to do list so intimidating that you are paralysed and procrastinate? Don’t fret, there is a way to write a to do list so things get done.
Of course, you have a filing system in place! Except it’s not up-to-date… You got married, had children, bought a house, signed up for new insurance policies etc. but never revisited it or maintained multiple filing systems in parallel. Or you never purged your files and are no longer able to fit another piece of paper in it so it ends up in a pile or is randomly filed. So how to refresh it so you can instantly find anything you need, without even arguing with your spouse?
No matter how well we plan our days, we all face those days when we have too much to do or when an unexpected event throws our plans off – whether it’s a boss or client having an urgent request or a child being down with high fever and who needs to be taken to the doctor. So how to handle those days without the stress building up, but instead experience a sense of accomplishment?
