Recovering from Hurricane Sandy

Hurricane Sandy

Over the past few days I have felt so many emotions.  Since Sunday I have felt nervous, sad, grateful, blessed, annoyed, irritated, empathetic, compassionate…should I go on?

I am happy to finally be fully operational today and prayerful that you and your families are safe and sound.  Many of us have lost or  have family members that have lost so much from this storm.  My prayers are with you all and I am praying for strength to help you get through this terrible time.

With that said the 50 Days of Gift Ideas for Holiday 2012 series set to begin November 1st will begin November 5, 2012.  See you then!

3 Steps to Help You Get Everything Done During the Day

Productive To Do List

How do you get everything done during the day?

This is a common question for most women juggling a house and home.  If you add running a home business or blog to the mix you may really feel overwhelmed and guilty from neglecting your family.

So if the idea of completing your task list every day sounds impossible the following tips may help you actually complete your list every day.   Here’s how:

Step #1 Create a List

I don’t know about you but I am a list maker.  It’s time for you to embrace the habit of creating a daily, weekly and monthly “to do” list too if you don’t do this already.  A “to do” list will help you keep track of everything you need to get done during the day.

This system of organization will ensure that you stay productive and efficient. I usually create the list for the upcoming day, at night before I go to bed.

Step #2 What’s more important?

Let’s face it, we can all write a 100 item “to do” list but that wouldn’t be productive right?  The first thing you need to do is take a good look at that list you made for your daily, weekly, and monthly tasks and rank them in order of priority.

Ask yourself  “what the most important tasks are for you business and/or home?”  Are there tasks that only you can accomplish?  If you have a home business or blog, what tasks will help you grow your business/blog, make money, and thrive?

Step #3 Scratch it off!

Sound too dramatic?  Not really.  There is a pretty good chance that there are  items on your task list that don’t belong there. Either they can be:

  • Completed by someone else – Delegate or Outsource items that require too much time.  Involve your spouse or kids if necessary, let them take on a few things.
  • Automated – Take a deep breath and embrace technology! There are so many things that can be automated.
  • Put Off – Does everything really have to get done right now?  For example, perhaps errands can be put off and completed on the weekend or in the evening.

The bottom line is that there is only one of you.  If you have too much on your list it ain’t getting done anyway, so consider the things that can live with never getting done and erase them from your mind.

Finally, as you take a glance at your narrow list remember to do the items in order of priority.  Focus on the most important, and money making, tasks first. Then you can focus on the lesser tasks if you have spare time.

Do you use a list to get everything done during the day?  Leave a comment below I’d love to hear from you.
