What a Way to Start Your Day!

Just back from a three-week vacation in Hawaii, I want to share a little of the Aloha spirit with you.

Two disc jockeys for Kapa radio share their -Bright Spot of the Day- every day at 7:45AM. "Take a deep satisfying breath in for a moment, then let it out slowly. Repeat this several times." The coach says, "What a way to keep your day flowing, and what a way to close your day. Aloha.

Conquer Your Clutter, Conquer Your Stress

Did you know you spend over 150 hours a year looking for misplaced paper and things?

It's not the messes that kill us, it's our worry about them! Worry keeps the stress cycle going, and stress is a major link to discomfort and disease.

Procrastination and lack of focus lead to clutter. Our inability to decide what to do and when to do it causes paper chaos. Some of us hate to let go of anything. Got mystery boxes in your storage are? Got spotted, not- your-size clothes in your closet? Hoping polyester will make a comeback?

Are you afraid of completion, criticism, failure, success or discipline? Bored with your project? Fear creates procrastination and worry is a form of fear, both metaphors for stress.

Are you a stacker? A slinger? A spreader? A stuffer? Does your desk top look like an avalanche ready to happen? Is more than one project on it?

Realize only 20% of your paper and things are important. Why organize the 80% clutter? If it's important (the 20%) we need to put them in special places so we can find them again! Keep papers and projects vertical, and alphabetically arranged for quick retrieval. With only one project on your desk, you can focus and finish instead of being distracted by low priority items.

Quick Solutions

  1. Decide fast. Think all decisions are the same. Mistakes are better than the paralysis of perfectionism.
  2. Prioritize. Do your goals and plans first. Then help others.
  3. Focus. Stress causes poor paper placement. In 20% of the time, focused people do 80% of their work.
  4. Bring in less paper. Change your philosophy. Do you really read all of those magazines or catalogues? Meet your junk mail with your round file.
  5. Get a buddy to help you clean out your closet. Try on clothes and be real!
    Your buddy will tell you the truth.
