Blessed are the List Makers

It’s been two weeks since Easter and here in Australia, the kids are going back to school. As much as we love the little dears, we can now turn our attention to more pressing things like getting some semblance of a routine back.

Whilst we lament that God gave us only 24 of those precious hours, we have also been given the smarts to organize our busy lives around it.

Here is a great tip for doing that-all you need is a pen and a piece of paper and if you are technologically savvy, use your cell phone.

Every morning as you are sitting down to your first cup of coffee, WRITE DOWN EVERYTHING you need to 1) DO (client/business phone calls), 2) GET (groceries), 3) BE AT (meetings or dropping the kids off or picking them up) and 4) PAY (power, phone bills) for the day.

Yep, it is that easy. You see what happens is that you are focusing on task completion. This means less stress because you don’t have to REMEMBER everything and it allows your brain to address other more interesting problem solving issues like how to have better relationships with your spouse and children (I kid you not).

Try it for a week and see how much more relaxed and serene you feel and if you don’t like it you can go back to where you were before.

Yours in health, wealth and happiness
