Organization Tip of the Day

Take out your day planner and if you use a computer calendar print out the week. Now look at your upcoming week and ask yourself this very important question: “With the way my week is scheduled now will I be moving toward achieving any of my goals?” This question is key. If you wonder at the end of the day/week/month why you always feel ‘behind’ and why you don’t feel like you’re getting anything done it’s because you aren’t looking at your goals daily and taking steps each day toward your goals. If your answer to the above question is no, look over you goals for the year and plug in some appointments with yourself to take some action steps towards your goals.

    This is a great organizational tip. However, I can’t right now, Liz.

    I was in a hurry last week and didn’t take the time to put my used checkbook in the drawer with the others. I thought I’d do it when I got home. Now it’s days later…I need to check a “still out” check and cannot find the carbon check pads.

    ..I feel I’m having a “messies” relapse moment!!!! So a task that would have taken no more than 30 seconds – now leaves me checking places until I find the little cove it’s in waiting for me to win Hide and Seek. I did NOT have time for Hide and Seek games today 🙁 🙁 🙁 The moral of this story is… … …. ….

    Liz, I’d been in such a frenzy looking for the checkbook I mentioned in above posting.. … …I finally sat down and made myself be really still…I prayed, again, Lord, please help me find that checkbook…. … … I sat there a little longer and then felt I needed to check my purse with too many pockets..for the third time!!!!!… … … .I went through each pocket very carefully…then remembered the ‘secret compartment’ – type pocket which I seldom use…guess what had been sitting in there the entire time…????? I finally won the Game Hide and Seek that I did not have time for today!!!! Haste does certain not only make waste (wasted energy and time) but the emotional frenzy mode one can slip into looking for something is so not the way the Good Lord wants us to spend our days… Now, I can really think about your organizational tip for today!!!! Praying for your dad, Liz. I’m fortunate to still have my dad and mom around. We are both blessed!!!
