362 - The 4 Kinds of Work Part 2

This week, we are continuing to look at the different kinds of work. Having labels for things like types of work allows us to see things differently and sometimes leads to better communication. Prior to founding Organize 365, my entire life was reactive. Everyone else got to tell me what to do - the economy, my family, my stuff. I just kept reacting to what was happening in my environment. In 2011, I drew a line in the sand. Sink or swim, I am in charge of my life from here on out. I started by taking care of my home and began proactively attacking my life. Unless you actively decide to do planned work and work to create a life where the majority of your work is planned, you will remain in firefighting mode and continue to be reactive. Until I read The Phoenix Project, I did not even have a mindset for types of work like this. I did not realize the two other kinds of work we are talking about today were a thing that existed. Last week, we explored proactive and reactive types of work. Today, we add in maintenance and change orders. Work: Maintenance - maintenance is the repeating tasks that result in the care and upkeep of your home and life. Many people ask Organize 365 for a cleaning checklist or a home maintenance checklist. There are tons of them on Pinterest. However, if you are using the internet for a list consider how often you need to do the tasks. Are you sure everything you are doing on your checklist needs to be done (at all) or needs to be done as often as you are doing it? Your standard and comfort level is unique to you. Maintain at the level at which you want to maintain your home. Make a list of the tasks you want to be done - daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, and yearly timeline. Make sure that the frequency you assign each task matches with the home you want to have. Work: Change Orders - anytime things change, it creates work. When a person, assignment, or locations changes, you need to think through the new situation, and you need to do the work to make the change happen. Change is part of life - try not to add a lot of drama. Pivot, adjust, and keep making progress. Often, these kinds of change orders are reactive. Tip! With meetings, book 5-30 minutes after them for your change order work meeting. Follow up as immediately as possible - adjust the agenda (maintenance), and then get your to do items into your Sunday Basket or Friday Box, make decisions, give approvals, or adjust deadlines. At home, you may need to adjust to new dietary requirements or adjust for your energy level or adjust to someone else (sick kid, spouse stuck late at work, etc.). I have learned to proactively adjust my plans based on my energy levels. As I analyze my own patterns, I have learned that I need to have a certain kind of energy in order to be effective at content creation - writing books or recording podcasts. Other kinds of work I can do no matter what my energy level is at a given moment. I adjust my schedule each evening for the next day based on my energy level. I am giving you permission to make your own maintenance checklists and your own change orders. Just because we have work to do in our own homes, does not mean that we need to do it at a certain time or in a certain order or on a certain day. I give you permission to loosen the standards you have set for yourself that are so high. They may be robbing you of your joy. Do what is right for you. Try it without worrying. There is no failure, it is just an experiment.

ReAir 086 - 3 Things to Consider When You Are Saving Your Kid's Memories

This week our #Throwback Thursday Podcast is Episode # 86 - Saving Kids' Memories. For years I just "organized" my piles in cuter containers, better systems and a larger house. But organization is not about containers or beautiful systems. It is about keeping what you want and love so you can enjoy those items now and in the future. So today I want to talk about the items you are saving for your kids. Specifically - kids artwork, clothing, school papers, old toys, pictures, cards, books, old sporting equipment, etc.

361 - The 4 Kinds of Work - Part 1

I have recently been enjoying parable based books to learn new things and to gain confidence that my own analysis and plans are “right” in the world of business.Reading a fictionalized version of important information helps me to apply learning and see nuances rather than just read dry facts. Recently, I listened to The Phoenix Project by Gene Kim and learned how they describe four different kinds of work. In this podcast, I will introduce you to the first two kinds of work. I then also share my thinking about how these kinds of work are also present in our home and household lives. By thinking about these kinds of work, we can get better work patterns and be more effective in the work we do. Constraints - constraints are limits that are difficult or impossible to change - in this episode, I give examples of time, money, and space. When we do not have enough of these things, it can be a limit on our organization and productivity, and changing our situation can require a major effort. Bottlenecks - are problems that can be analyzed and solved - in this episode, I give examples of time, money, and space. I explain how we are not using what we have effectively. It is vital to discern whether you are facing a constraint or a bottleneck - many times there are effective changes you can make. Work: Firefighting - reactive work that has deadlines, stress, or feels like a crisis. This work shows up unexpectedly and causes us to pivot, iterate, and adapt rapidly. In the home, the Sunday Basket contains and then puts out fires. Firefighting is reactive by its very nature. Work: Planned Work - Planned work is proactive. When you plan your work, you use your time, money, and space more effectively. Organize 365 members accomplish large goals without stress, overwork, or being hurried. The 100 Day Home Organization Program focuses on planned work. Each day is planned out for you and you make progress in 15 minute chunks. Try it! For the next 10 days, every evening I want you to write out your plan for the next day in the order you will accomplish your tasks on a notecard. Write down your appointments, any household tasks you need to accomplish (pick up a prescription or clean the oven or do laundry). When you write out a plan for your day in order, you can see if you days are smoother. Bonus: the evening before, also add to the index card what clothing you will wear and write down what you will eat. Spoiler alert - there are no perfect days and no perfect plans! The goal is to move from reactive to proactive. You can learn more about using notecards in Episode 310: Ditch Your To Do List with Notecards. Listen in next week for the other two kinds of work!

360 - New Organize 365 WFH Products!

Today, I want to announce and introduce some brand new Organize 365 products to increase your working from home productivity. Organize 365 believes and teaches that organization is about changing your mindset, decluttering, and focusing on what’s functional. I am announcing some new products today, but they are not needed to get your home and paper organized. You need a Sunday Basket, the 100 Day Home Organization Program, and the four basic binders to establish your foundation of organization. We have had those products for almost 3 years now. We continue to make improvements and add value to your purchases, but these core pieces have not changed.. I have promised you for years that once you get organized, you will have more free time, and many of you are finding that to be true! And, now, you are asking, what do we do with all of this time? Today - I have answers for you! All of the products I am sharing with you today are specifically designed to equip you to do the work you were uniquely created to do. I have been able to adapt the Sunday Basket into various Friday Workboxes to empower me to have a multi-passionate life - I homeschool my daughter, run a corporation (Organize 365), volunteer, and pursue my other hobbies and passions without dropping anything. Organize 365 App - I appreciate your patience in getting this app out there in the world. There are no organizing emergencies, so we continue to work on this so it is 110% ready for you. It will be completely integrated with the Organize 365 website, and once it’s ready, we will be sure to let you know. Winter 2021 Planner for the 100 Day Home Organization Program - changed out the beginning pages of the planner to better focus on setting goals, figuring out your time, and establishing your morning, afternoon, and evening routines. I haven’t removed any of the pages, but I want to continue to add value and support your success. (If you have already ordered this planner, we are mailing you the updated pages as our gift!) Friday Workbox Planner - This is designed to be used with any Friday Workbox you use to earn an income. (It is not designed to be used with the Teacher, Homeschooling, or Volunteer Workboxes at this time). The planner will walk you through taking all of your ideas and to do items, organizing them, and then doing the work to make progress and achieve your goals. This is an undated, quarterly (3 month) planner. Workbox Planning Day - Our first ever Workbox Planning Day will be Saturday December 5, 2020 from 10am-3pm EST. For work related planning, I always spend the month before the next business quarter setting goals, prioritizing my projects, and making my plan. This gives me enough time to really think, analyze, and plan so I can hit the ground running and start making progress as soon as the new quarter starts. This will be a guided time to deep dive through your whole Friday Workbox and to set up your planner along with me. Colored Lattice Binders - At times, you will find that you have slash pocket information that need to be held for reference or as archive information. We now have colored lattice binders to match the 2.0 slash pockets - pink, purple, blue, and green are now available. Since you can order them individually, you could also order them for your kid’s Lisa Binder for school. Income and Expense Binder - Organize 365 now has a complete and ready to use binder to track your income and expenses. Every year I have been in business (23 years and counting), I make a binder like this for my own business finances. It is a game changer and a life saver! This keeps my business expenses separate from my personal (home) expenses. Every year, I can send my accountant my paperwork in early February and have my taxes done. This binder has 3 sets (15 individual) green slash pockets and specialized printables for each month. This binder will hold your expense receipts, your income trackers, and has a mileage log. Using this, you will be able t

ReAir 252 - Endurance is Not Stopping

This week, we are featuring Episode # 252 for our #ThrowbackThursday Episode - Endurance Means NOT Stopping. Just keep swimming. But that doesn’t have to mean we are constantly in motion, or that we never get our tasks completed because we’re always looking to the next task. In fact, one of the things I’m learning is that endless to do lists can actually deny us that great feeling of accomplishment that comes from finishing something. The podcast episode today is all about doing one more thing. Just one! I want you to increase your organization endurance, and the only way to do that is to press on. Keep going. Move forward. It doesn’t have to be a life-changing task. In fact, it shouldn’t be! Pick something small and achievable, and push yourself to get it done. Just one more thing!

WFH Productivity - Interview with Emily - Workbox Additions & Retreat day

2020 Declutter Entertainment

These weeks between October 1st and Thanksgiving are typically the most productive weeks of the year. I want to help you make Octobersuperproductive by helping you declutter. I want to give you tasks you can complete in 15 minutes a day so you can declutter some different areas of your life. I am focusing ondeclutteringonly, not onorganizingorproductivity. Have you been listening, or have you been taking action this month? We’ve talked about files, hot spots, and hot mess rooms. Today, we are going to talk about decluttering entertainment. This pandemic has taught me that Americans are entertainment hoarders. We have long lists of things we pursue for the sake of entertainment like kids’ activities, restaurants, shopping, TV shows, sporting events, and even travel. We have become so used to consuming entertainment that the pause in novelty during the pandemic has led to boredom. There was even a meme that said: “I finished Netflix today, what’s next?” Today, I want to share my thoughts about decluttering the entertainment we have inside of our homes. Those games, puzzles, and hobby materials that you were keeping just in case - have you used them? Can you plan to use them this winter? If you have entertainment you no longer wish to keep, clear out your house and make more space for the things your family does use. Listen to the podcast as I talk with you about board games, video electronics, that mega box of cords, and even analog entertainment (waffle makers, for example). I want you to use the entertainment you do have and enjoy to make memories with your family. And, for the things you no longer need, can you pass them on and bless some other family? I bought a bunch of puzzles when we first started staying safe at home. I have passed them along to people who passed them along to others - the puzzle train means that many families get to enjoy spending time together working on a puzzle, but do not have to keep storing a puzzle they have already used. I’d love to hear what things you have passed along to others on Facebook or Instagram!

These weeks between October 1st and Thanksgiving are typically the most productive weeks of the year. I want to help you make Octobersuperproductive by helping you declutter. I want to give you tasks you can complete in 15 minutes a day so you can declutter some different areas of your life. I am focusing ondeclutteringonly, not onorganizingorproductivity. Have you been listening, or have you been taking action this month? We’ve talked about files, hot spots, and hot mess rooms. Today, we are going to talk about decluttering entertainment. This pandemic has taught me that Americans are entertainment hoarders. We have long lists of things we pursue for the sake of entertainment like kids’ activities, restaurants, shopping, TV shows, sporting events, and even travel. We have become so used to consuming entertainment that the pause in novelty during the pandemic has led to boredom. There was even a meme that said: “I finished Netflix today, what’s next?” Today, I want to share my thoughts about decluttering the entertainment we have inside of our homes. Those games, puzzles, and hobby materials that you were keeping just in case - have you used them? Can you plan to use them this winter? If you have entertainment you no longer wish to keep, clear out your house and make more space for the things your family does use. Listen to the podcast as I talk with you about board games, video electronics, that mega box of cords, and even analog entertainment (waffle makers, for example). I want you to use the entertainment you do have and enjoy to make memories with your family. And, for the things you no longer need, can you pass them on and bless some other family? I bought a bunch of puzzles when we first started staying safe at home. I have passed them along to people who passed them along to others - the puzzle train means that many families get to enjoy spending time together working on a puzzle, but do not have to keep storing a puzzle they have already used. I’d love to hear what things you have passed along to others on Facebook or Instagram!
