30-Second Productivity Strategies Half a minute is all it takes to make each day more productive. 1. Take 30 seconds to set the stage for awesome success. Here's how: Before you start doing something, answer the question, "What can I do to make this awesome?" That's basically what Mike Williams of the David Allen Company (the Getting Things Done folks) asked me. At first, it sounded cheesy. Keep in mind this applies just as much to your personal life, too. Don't just move blindly on to the next task. Answer that question, and whatever you do, you will do a lot better. 2. Unfortunately, all too often you forget what happened. Don't. Then you will remember what's important--and be able to act on what's important. 3. That's a shame, because meetings involve people--and that means there's a lot to think about ahead of time. Terrible meetings are all talk and no action. 4. Feeling stressed? Need to switch from quiet mode to outgoing and engaging? Find little rituals that help prepare you for stressful or unusual situations. 5.

Alongside great systems and routines, habits are key to becoming and STAYING organised. Habits will become part of your life without you even thinking about them. We all brush our teeth each morning and evening – it takes a few minutes and then is done. My organising philosophy is:- Systems + Routines + Habits = Organised Habits underpin everything we are trying to achieve, and can be so simple to implement. I have written down my top 52 for you here – 1 for each week of the year. Its a great challenge to see how far you come in a year – thats enough time to really change your life and set a way forward that you can really achieve and stick to.

Eat 5 a day – at least!

50 Ways to Organize Your Home When you have a home, you have a need for home organization. Fact is, we all have “stuff”. And “stuff”, can end up slowing down our day, and ruffling our feathers in the evening. “Stuff” quickly becomes clutter, and who wants that?

The Brain-Based Secret to Personal Productivity By now, you've probably already broken most of your New Year's resolutions. You're not alone: Only about 8 percent of those who make them keep them. But it may not be that you'll never lose weight or learn a foreign language. If you aren't being productive or if you feel off track, it could simply be because you haven't set yourself up for success in a way that suits your individuality. Take a typical New Year's resolution like running. The overall goal is to lose weight. Let's apply this to work. In my work, we've uncovered four ways of thinking that every person exhibits. Here's your challenge: Find which way of thinking (or what combination of ways) fits you. Structural. Analytical. Social. Conceptual. In all four scenarios, the goal is the same: getting things done. Imagine Jack vowing to "be a little less rigid this year, maybe a little more like Natalie."

Organize Your Whole House with One Trip to the Dollar Store There are any number of excuses I can make for why I haven’t taken the time to organize our house: not enough time to do it all, don’t know where to start, organizational supplies are too expensive, etc. It’s easy to get discouraged and quit before I am even started. But the truth is, the supplies to get an entire house in order don’t have to cost a small fortune. Most of them can be found right at the local dollar store. To prove this to myself, and to you, I took a trip to my local Dollar Tree. ONE trip, no going back for forgotten items or things they didn’t have in stock. The uses for some of the supplies are obvious; you use the drawer organizers to organize drawers and the laundry bags to hold dirty (or clean) laundry. I have compiled 100 ways you can organize your whole house using items from the dollar store. 1. 14. 19. 22. 26. 28. 35. 37. 40. 42. 49. 54. 58. 61. 63. 64. 66. 69. 74. 78. 80. 82. 83. 86. 88. 90. 91. 94. 97.
