I love to organize and I want to make it easier for you to feel, stay and be organized.
I’m ready to share my secrets of how I remember to do everything. And how I usually get everything done in record time with personal, detailed follow-up. It’s not rocket-science, it’s literally one simple tip: I write it down. This strategy will revolutionize your tasks, make you more accomplished and remove so much stress from your mind – it will change your life. I’m going to share my best ideas with you for how I make this happen in any instance to ensure I get the job done.
Simple tips when you’re trying to organize anything:
- Use the strategy that works best for you.
- Be clear with what you write down – you need to understand it when you reference it again – even if it’s hours, days or weeks later.
- Have a start-to-finish system to turn your task from an idea to a completed success.

It’s been a while since I’ve focused on what I enjoy. Life seems to keep getting in the way. And I’ve had my focus in other places – growing family, life goals and work. I’ve come up with excuse after excuse and labeled them reason after reason – everything seemed valid for pushing what was important to me aside to get other things done.
But no more! I’m proud to say, I’ve made great progress this year in many areas and the goal I’ve been working toward is within my grasp. Even when you feel like you’re at the starting line, I encourage you to make a plan to make progress. Here is what I did:
Focus on small goals.
I had a baby in December and I gained a lot of weight (ok, it was a normal amount, but it felt like a lot). I’ve been working steadily since then to lose weight, build muscle and eat clean. In the last 6 months, I’ve lost all the baby weight (hooray!). It wasn’t easy, but it certainly was doable. I will write about the details later, but the short story is – I focused on a small goal to make it happen. I watched each meal and each day with a goal of losing 2 oz to 4 oz. It didn’t seem like much, but it adds up to about 6 lbs per month and over time, that makes a big difference!
When you have a major goal that you need to accomplish, break it down into tiny pieces. Seriously, tiny bite-sized (like 1 oz) pieces. The smaller your goal, the more realistic it seems and the closer you get to your overall achievement.

I woke up this morning knowing I needed to get a lot done. We just finished one of our busy seasons at work, I have people coming over tonight and I’ve let my house cleaning and cooking take a back seat in my priorities. I got up ready to start working on everything and hit the ground running and after about 15 minutes, I realized I wasn’t making much progress on anything. Every time I got started on one task, I’d start to see something else I needed to do and I’d switch to this – I was running in circles.
And then I stopped, got some breakfast, and sat down to make a list (and I do love my lists). Here’s why you need to follow my “list first” strategy:
When you’re traveling, it’s important that you’ve got exactly what you need for your trip, no more and no less. By using these easy strategies, you’ll be able improve your trip by being well-prepared in your packing and traveling experience.
Before you’re planning to travel, purchase a durable travel bag and travel-sized toiletries or travel-sized containers. Make a list of items that you’ll keep in this bag and pack this bag now, even if you’re not traveling soon. Keep this travel bag separate from your general use toiletries and store it near your luggage. Your travel pack will always be ready to go with everything that you need for traveling, eliminating the potential for last-minute forgotten items. After you return from your trip, refill and replace empty items so your travel pack is always ready when you need it.
