Tuesday’s “Little Bite” Tip!
This is for Melissa and for all of the other “go-getters” out there!
Melissa loves her children and loves what her children do - Melissa is a soccer mom who helps a soccer organization in her community. As all of us know - sports programs (or any program) do not just happen by magic, it takes a lot of time and energy from people like Melissa to make these kinds of services possible. But beyond her volunteer time in her community Melissa also takes care of her family, and helps her elderly parents who live near-by. She home schools her children and manages her house. You see Melissa is like you and I - she is a “go-getter” - but even Melissa can become overwhelmed with home and office projects, because Melissa is human - a human being trying to balance it all.
I want to encourage Melissa and all of us that we can enjoy life while getting things done when we do not try to do it “ALL” at once. When we trade in B I G plate portion projects for “bite-sized” productivity we can make our “ALL” “small” which helps us to bENCOURAGEd Today!
One of my favorite “bite-sized” tips is to…
Name the Day!
This tip was born out of frustration and my family feeling overwhelmed.
I used to create elaborate charts and spreadsheets for home chores and projects. While they looked clean and professional hanging from magnet clips and framed on my kitchen wall - the assignments were not being completed like I had envisioned. My family was overwhelmed by my ultra type A order - this frustrated me - they did not comply - cycle continued. This was until I made the decision to throw out the charts and simplify the system. This is when I decided to…
Name the Day!
Now - we do not have to check a chart, because we know what to do on a certain day. We have fun coming up with alliterations like - Saturday/Sunday Sheets & Floors on Friday. In my business I use Website Wednesday and Financial Friday to keep me on task.
While Melissa and all of us will still have projects and tasks that need to be written or typed into a calendar, with Name the Day! - we can eliminate the clutter of charting repeatable chores.
When we apply Name the Day! we will increase productivity and reduce stress helping us to…
