Simple DIY Organizing Tricks Will Make Your Life Way Cuter Everyone knows it's hard to get anything done when the house (or office, or desk, or anything) is a mess. For one thing, you can't find any of the things necessary for getting work done because everything is a huge pile of old paperwork, food containers, and dirty socks. For another, there's no way you are going to be comfortable perched atop said mound of paperwork and dirty socks and if there isn't room for you, then there isn't room for work. Or play. Or company.

Focus Your Ambitions with the Lifehacker Hierarchy of Goals Setting goals is easy, but prioritizing them is hard. Humans suck at properly weighing what we need to achieve our goals. We take on too much, skip steps, and often, as a result, we give up. Once you commit to a framework to prioritize your goals and cut the junk, achieving your goals gets a lot more realistic. Here's one way to do it.P If you're anything like me you have a ton of goals. Consider this a system of life designing that helps you question assumptions and figure out what you really want.

"It's not easier to move because moving adds expense," said the contractor. "It adds a lot of money that's lost — property tax, your real estate fees. Inevitably that place you're going to you're going to do work to, so keep that in the place that you're used to (living in.)" "It's about growing with the house, with your family and taking a couple of steps back," said designer Mia Parres. Evans and Parres help space-starved homeowners in the new series "The Expandables," which airs back-to-back episodes Thursdays starting at 9 p.m. The families featured in "The Expandables" are faced with individual challenges of living within cramped quarters, whether it's due to the addition of children to the household or ineffective floor layouts that disrupt the flow of the home.

“The Daily Rind”, a Better Way to Plan the Day — A. King in Society Photo: A sample “daily rind” from my notebook For years my task and schedule management lived across various apps — OmniFocus, Basecamp, Google Calendar, and others (and more recently, as I pared down my “productivity” tools, a simple combination of The Hit List + iCal.) But mapping out what to do throughout my day in a reliable way has always been a problem. Really understanding how little time there was and seeing patterns in time usage proved next to impossible, despite all the technology at my fingertips. I think I’ve found a better way. I still track my projects and tasks digitally, and keep a calendar (with online sync + backup) for planning ahead, but for mapping out what I’m going to do in the day ahead of me, I’ve devised a decidedly low-tech system which I’m lovingly referring to as “The Daily Rind.” Re-introducing Analog -or- Can’t Get No Satisfaction? I’d never really been attracted to using a paper-based day-planner. Hacking the Muji Chronotebook 1. 2. 3. The First Rind — Day
