SkillSet Organizing Summer 2016 eNewsletter
What's on the Summer Organizing Bucket List??
So, of course, I made a list. Here are a few ways we can all get back on track:
- Take a day or two (or maybe even three) off. Sometimes you really do need to forget all of the day-to-day stuff and just veg. Staycations are totally appropriate for this strategy (I believe it's why they invented Netflix).
- Tackle the piles in the office. I get them too, and they grew exponentially this month. Try taking one small area a day to re-file, purge, shred, or containerize.
- Delegate. Are the kids home, and more importantly - are they bored? Nothing wrong with giving them some of the jobs you haven't been able to get to lately. If there are no kiddos to pass off to, use your neighborhood community announcement page to see if someone has a teenager that could use some extra $$.
- Prioritize. For some of us, summer is a down time that's perfect for reviewing and setting goals. Get them out of your head and down in writing - or in something like Evernote - so you can follow up.
- Work to the reward. If you can see a happier ending in sight, maybe you'll be more inspired to take on the mundane. For example, before you pack for vacation take time to clear out the closet and assess the wardrobe.
Any time of year is a great time to organize - read on for more great ways to move forward.
