Stay Organized - Tip of the Day: The URGENT vs. The IMPORTANT

From Payne to Gain Organizing is presenting a daily tip in January - Get Organized Month. Follow full blog at www.frompaynetogainorganizing.com.

I have been reading a sales and marketing book called "The 21 Laws of Sales Success."  It hit on a topic that speaks loud and clear to me and is near and dear to my heart.  Many people operate in the URGENT mode - dealing with things once they are "on fire" and not in a methodical manner using a priority and planning system.  This goes for both at home and in the work place. 

The reality is and what I try to help clients with, is that "ONE HOUR OF PROPER PLANNING SAVES FIVE HOURS OF ACTUAL DOING."  It truly is as simple as that - just a bit harder to put into practice at times.  That is where I come in! 

Do you find that you are hitting drive-thru or grocery store too often because there's not a dinner plan? Running out at the last minute to grab school/household supplies for a project since there's not a "supply" at home or you aren't sure what you have?  Struggling to keep up with household chores let alone clean out/re-org projects? Paper piles taking over because there isn't a office filing/operating system? Have you found that you've ended up buying something only to find you already had it but didn't know since things weren't sorted and organized?  Have lots of clothes in your closet but "nothing to wear"? 

Many of these issues can be solved and improved for the long run when you work with a professional organizer.  Paying for one session with me can save untold $$ over the long run as I help you become more organized and productive!  During one garage clean out job - we found so much of the same bug/lawn products becuase they kept buying more since not sure of what was at home - the cost of the extra buys would have paid for my 4 hour session!  Let me help you from getting the fire hoses out and operate in the IMPORTANT mode with peace and calm!
