5 Steps to Efficiency
With the economy in a downward spiral, and at the urging of our new President, it’s time for all of us to take responsibility and work towards being more efficient. At Chaos to Order we have spelled out 5 steps that can lead us to a more efficient and organized life.
1. Spend Wisely – Chaos to Order has developed a Home Efficiency Program (for more information call (847) 825-8400). It’s guaranteed to help you cut costs on household expenses. There are so many ways to economize and now is the time to do it. Trim down on everything from storage locker space to cable bills, Chaos to Order has a step by step guide to help you get the best deal.
3. Create a Time Management System – Two items that are necessary in every household: calendar & filing system. Whatever type of calendar you use, make sure it’s big enough for all tasks and appointments. A working filing system is the other absolute necessity. Have a place for everything, even if it’s only temporary, and stop wasting time sifting through papers and mail.
4. Don’t Overschedule – to avoid overscheduling, I suggest you actually schedule downtime. Our lives are moving at such a busy pace that unless we work to create time to balance out, we will continue to feel hurried and tired. Taking time out will actually make you more productive because you will be relaxed and focused.
5. Create Good Habits – I talk to clients who say that when our organizer arrives, they will finally start to get organized. I tell them not to wait, start right now creating good habits of putting away as you go. Chaos to Order is happy to help you get things organized, but to keep it organized is a constant process!
