TIP OF THE WEEK #4

SET DEADLINES - Setting a deadline encourages you to work towards it. Set a definite date and time. Saying, 'When I get a chance' or 'Sometime in the near future' is deferring a decision.

TIP OF THE WEEK #3

PRIORITIZING YOUR TO DO'S - The last two tips have led you to this week's tip--Prioritizing Your To Do's. I often hear people say, "I make a to-do list, but I never seem to get anything done." If you don't plan when you are going to do your tasks they won't get done, they will just stay on a list. Schedule your tasks into your calendar just like an appointment. Now you have a plan, a dedicated time, to complete each task.

TIP OF THE WEEK #2

DEFINING YOUR ROLES - Last week's tip was determine your goals. Goals determined by your roles. For example my roles are; spouse, mother, business owner, teacher, friend, self (not necessarily in that order). For each role determine your goals. For each goal, each week, determine the tasks that will lead you to completion of each goal. Look for Tip of the Week #3 explaining how to pull it all together to get things done that are purposeful to you.

TIP OF THE WEEK #1

DETERMINE YOUR GOAL - Before you organize anything, determine your goal and vision for the space. If you don't know where you're going, how will you ever get there? Set mini-goals and reward yourself for successes.
