Eliminate the Frustration of Home Remodeling Planning with This Very Helpful Checklist!
Make A List of MUST HAVES.
Many people fall head over heels for the latest apps and gadgets. But I have found that so many people do much better with a simple sticky note or day planner list. It doesn’t mean you’re lazy or unintelligent. All these different tools can leave you spending much more time trying to organize or consolidate your list, leaving many of your items undone.
Keep an Idea Pad. Paper, phone, moleskin, iPad… whatever. little things you remember, ideas & responsibilities should all go to one place. You can reference this list at the end of the day an organize them accordingly.
Group Your Needs and Priorities.
Many times though our list has 10 things on it, it’s likely they can be grouped into 3 (or 4) groups. Home, family & work. That’s the first step. Once your list is organized into categories, you may find that you can narrow it down even further to your top 3 priorities and then another list of 3 secondary things to do. At the end of the day – you’ll likely get 6 things done! But at the very least, you’ll get the most important things done first – leaving you feel accomplished and at peace with your performance.
Make Life Binders
It’s a VERY good idea to have different binders for each major part of your life. Keep a shelf for them to live on and label their spines with titles like, home, family, work & creative. Those folders can have tab separators within your family folder, you can have a section for your partner and each child. In the home folder, you can have sections for utilities, repairs and even cars. Get the idea? Additionally, you can even take it further and keep a plastic pocket in each to hold receipts and invoices for an easier tax season at the end of the year.
The biggest suggestion we can give is to do one thing at a time. Mult-tasking here can be really overwhelming, so give things proper attention.
