Time Management

❤️ Love Your Boundaries

In the world of self-help and self-care, the term "boundaries" is often used as a personal tool. I think of boundaries as life jackets used for saving sanity in what can sometimes be the rough ocean of life. These boundaries we build for ourselves can be extremely transforming if one is looking for a sea change. The idea of personal [...]


A Holiday Thought/Gift for You

Giving yourself the gift of time is just as important as giving gifts to others this holiday season (which hopefully includes your time with them as well...). Without adding time for ourselves to decompress, we subtract from our own quality of "the most wonderful time of the year" and turn into grinches. Personally, I love the week between Christmas and [...]


What To Do For Me in 2023: Organize Your Calendar by Putting Yourself First

I hope you all had a less stressful year than I did in 2022! I thought I had implemented enough "self-care", but if I'm being honest with myself I'm not so sure. So, this year I want to ensure that I block out all the time and activities that make me feel whole and balanced. I'm thinking that if I [...]


Easing Our Way Back into Good Time Management

Here are three main points that will get your productivity flowing again this fall: 1. Think & Drink There is nothing like a cup of coffee, a glass of wine or even a water with lemon and undistracted time to get our organizational brains thinking about goals, tasks, to-do's and follow-ups. Like Oprah says in the opening to her podcasts, "Give [...]

Let me share some of my private PPE practices [...]


The Perks of a Paper Planner

I have been using a paper planner my entire professional life. Ok, don't laugh at me but I can remember getting excited each fall as I picked out a new one for the following year. This particular purchase really does make me happy (and productive). I did try to go digital over the years as I was feeling behind and [...]


Boost Your Inbox Immunity (especially during a pandemic!)

I was in a recent Chamber of Commerce meeting and we were discussing the increased number of emails that we receive. It appears that many businesses and personal communications are being delivered via this platform due to our stay-at-home order. So, this month I bring you three tips to keep your email inbox healthy based on your personal and/or business [...]


We All Need to Delegate!

I remember when I just started my business almost 15 years ago. I was attempting (poorly) to create a monthly newsletter. I could write it easily and joyfully enough, but my technology skills were not up to business standards. Ditto for my website. Actually, what I was finding was that many small business skills were popping up that I was [...]


Don’t Touch Me Unless You Mean It

Last month I presented my Clutter Busters class to a couple of different audiences. Both times I used the picture above in my presentation. Now time management usually isn't quite as exciting as a romantic, candlelit dinner for two so I needed to grab your attention.  But, just like you might not want to start an intimate relationship without knowing [...]


Fatal Distractions (for Mass Destruction of Your Time Management!)

I remember watching the movie Fatal Attraction. I thought it was very scary and that it taught me don’t ever have an extramarital affair! Nowadays what scares me as a professional organizer and a mother and wife, is the amount of time people are on their devices outside of work. […]
