Letting Time Work for You

July 22, 2013

Do you ever feel that there just isn’t enough time to get everything done?  Do you ever wish that you had two or three days to work on just one or two projects?  You really do have that time available if you just schedule it and make it happen.

We often begin our talks by asking how many people spend 10 to 30 minutes a day looking for lost things.  Now, 30 minutes does seem excessive on a daily basis.  On the other hand, wasting 10 minutes a day may not seem like a lot of time…until you start doing the math.  That 10 minutes translates to 61 hours a year; a full 2 1/2 days!  By the same formula 15 minutes ends up as 3.8 days, and the 30 minutes is almost 7 days.

We suggest that you set aside small amounts of time on a regular basis to focus on one project.  While you may be able to make headway on some of those projects in 10 to 30 minute spurts, they often require a bit more time and focus.  If that is the case then set aside one, two or three hours a week of dedicated time; whatever works best for you.  During that time, stay focused by eliminating interruptions and distractions.  Try setting a timer for a short work session or determine ahead of time you will not answer any phone calls – these are both great ways to stay on task!.  Also remember that you won’t complete the project in one or two sessions, but you will be that much closer to completion.

Have some photos that need to be organized?  Still trying to catch up on all the reading you have set aside?  What about all of those emails?  Schedule some time, put it on your calendar and slowly get through it.

Let us know if this works for you,

JoEllen & Muffy

OK, so now it is October, and you know what is coming soon...lots of cooking and entertaining. So perhaps now is a good time to get the kitchen in order. The benefits will be the ability to find everything when you need it, and you won't be purchasing...
