Day #7 ….What is your superpower?
My superpower is organization. When things in my life are organized I feel like I have more space and control.
Bad habits are hard to break and it takes the desire and determination to break a bad one.
It takes a week to start a habit….so Let It Be A Good One!
Make any necessary changes that will benefit your schedule and make things easier to accomplish.
These are some of the things I do:
Use a calendar ( I put it on my phone as well) with big blocks of space to write down my scheduled appointments, events, and special days. Each night check to see if there is something scheduled for the next day.
Don’t depend on my memory to keep track of everything. Make a list of things I want to take care of and if it is a long list, do a little at a time.
Try not to procrastinate. Take care of the task I like the least and do it first.
Try to keep my priorities in order and do not delay in making decisions.
Use labels on containers and files. Make a list of items in each container and put it in a file to refer to.
If there are items I have not used for a long time and probably won’t use, I will get rid of it. I have no problem letting go of things.
Women tend to have a lot of shoes and I’m no exception. I keep my shoes in shoe boxes, except the ones I wear most of the time. I take a photo of the shoes and tape it on the box. Then, I know what color, style and heel the shoe has.
I have art supplies in certain drawers or containers. When I use them and finish my project, I put them back before starting another project.
When we retired and downsized, I had to really get organized because space is limited where we live and everything has it’s place.
I’ve spent a great deal of time deciding what works best in our kitchen. I have rearranged things many times in an effort to make it more efficient to prepare meals and put things away.
I love to have things organized so I won’t have to go on a hunting expedition to find what I’m looking for, and that makes me happy!
