People often ask me, “How do you do it all?” To which I respond, “What makes you think I do it all? I don’t. I can’t remember the last time I cleaned, for goodness sake.”
Here’s how to clear your calendar! Draw a line down the center of a piece of paper. On one side of the paper write ‘to do’ list, and then on the other side of the page write ‘not to do.’ Now, write out all you have to do on the to do side of the page. We really do have ridiculously long ‘to do’ lists, don’t we?
Here comes the fun part! Take a good look at your ‘to do’ list and take anything on it that someone else could do for you and move it to your ‘not to do’ list. For instance, take the laundry. Either find someone else in the house who is capable of tossing it into the washer and drier to do the laundry or send it out. Is food shopping taking up too much of your precious time? Order on-line or call-in a standing delivery to your neighborhood grocery store. Cleaning? Forgetaboutit. I’m lucky. My husband has a much lower tolerance to mess than I do. I can count on him to clean up!
Lighten Your Load. Write out your Not to Do List today and get ‘busy.’
