Two Ways to a More Effective Day

Tick Tock Tick Tock, time's a-wasting!

Today’s post is short and simple – precisely because this is what the topic is all about: productivity.

1) A good tip is to track how you spend your time throughout the day by writing down what you’re doing every 15 or 30 minutes. The idea is that you’ll find what you’re really spending your time on and identify your time wasters (ie reading too many blogs!)

2) Another good tip is to have a mantra, using positive self-talk to help push you through the difficult situations (such as decluttering!)

So what makes a good mantra? One that’s short, positive, instructive, and full of action words. Here are a few mantras that could work for someone embarking on an uncluttering and/or organising project as suggested by Unclutterer.com:

  • One box at a time.
  • Less stuff, less stress.
  • Love it or lose it.
  • A place for everything, and everything in its place.
  • Five minutes or less? The answer is yes.

Do you have a mantra? Could using some positive self-talk help you to achieve your uncluttering and organizing goals?
