Working From Home a Challenge?

Working From Home a Challenge?
in Organizing

If you are also still working from home and/or schooling from home – finding a quiet place to do what you need may be a challenge. I have heard clients tell me that with kids in school online as well as their own working from home situation – there just isn’t enough space for everyone to do what they need to. This attached article was shared with me and I felt it was worth passing along.

How much do you REALLY need?

How much do you REALLY need?
in Stuff & Clutter

We are all spending a lot of time inside our homes. For those whose homes are a disorganized clutter zone, this could be stressful and result in more anxiety than isolating already brings to the table. If you are constantly tripping over stuff on the floor, and having to look at stacks of papers and magazines on top of various surfaces, or have counters filled with ‘who knows what’ then this needs to change.

in Time & Life Management

We all have to create new ways to stay motivated while working from home. For those who are self-employed and basically alone – this can difficult if you are a solopreneur. However, many people, myself included, have worked like this for years, so there is little difference.

Stuck At Home

Stuck At Home
in Time & Life Management

For most people being at home hour after hour and day after day is maddening. As it turns out however, many who ordinarily work from home (like my#) are not in that camp as this is not unusual. Admittedly, it is a bit unusual not to go out much at all, but working from home and transitioning from ‘work mode’ to ‘personal life mode’ is something I mastered many years ago.

in Time & Life Management

Someone in your office coughed and now everyone is asked to work remotely. So, now you must figure out how to successfully work from home. For many people working in an office environment provides much needed structure and can be a place with fewer distractions – or at least different kinds of distractions. So, how can you create a suitable work environment in your living or dining room?

Airplane Mode People!

Airplane Mode People!
in Time & Life Management

How many times does each of us experience someone’s phone going off in a public place we are at? Often, right? Most of us take the time to click the correct button to make the device not ring, or even vibrate. However, some are uncertain just what button they can or should use to not totally turn off their phone, and then there are those who simply don’t care.

Don’t wait to Downsize

Most people wait until they move before downsizing – or until they retire and move into a smaller place or worse, they leave it for a relative to deal with when they die. Not okay.

This New Years – DON’T make a list of Resolutions!

This New Years – DON’T make a list of Resolutions!

That’s right – you don’t have to be a Productivity Expert to know that those New Year’s resolutions won’t happen anyway – so don’t bother. Seriously. I have a better idea. Like you, I have made list after list of the things I am going to change for the coming year. And like me you probably get off to a great start for the first few weeks (if you are lucky as only 20% stay in the game past 30 days) and then those resolutions are out the window.

Making Time For Everything

Making Time For Everything
in Time & Life Management

Most of us get behind on our plans for the day at some point – and from my experience in coaching thousands on time management – one issue crops up constantly which can become the culprit: NOT making time for everything related to a task. The little ‘extra’ steps are really necessary in order to be truly done with something or to make that task more effective.
