To change a life, make a move. Small moves will allow for big changes in the long run. Remember that we need to make these incremental changes to progress toward our goals. I am sharing incremental home organizing challenges incorporating small daily tasks you can accomplish each month.
Some of these tasks will take you 15 minutes to do; others may take a little longer. A few challenges will be pretty detailed, and you may work on the entire challenge during the month. Others may take you just a few weekends to do. Stick with it, and by the end of the year, you will have completed and transformed your life.
Why should I do these monthly life challenges?
If you are at a loss on what to do to get your life more organized, this challenge will help you not have to think about the things that need completing. All you need to do is to click through the ebook to each month's challenge, and you will have all the information you need for that month's challenge.
Almost every month, there is a specific topic that will give you the motivation to clear out that area. The steps are very straightforward and easy to follow.
I organized the monthly challenges by the most likely monthly activity. So, in January, you may want to jump-start your life organizing so smaller tasks are scheduled for that month. Short 15-minute tasks will give you the confidence to move on to other, more detailed tasks. Some projects may take you more time, like the ones that involve getting all your bank accounts into one master list. While gathering the names may be easy, getting the contact information and account numbers may take more time.
Benefits of starting to plan now for the new year
I'm sharing this ebook before the first of the year, so you can plan and prepare for January's challenge.
Some benefits of planning ahead are:
- You can foresee what your future month has to offer and plan for it.
- Scheduling time will be easier if you plan at the end of the previous month for the next month.
- You will have more freedom to enjoy life and not worry about what needs to be done next.
- It will also help you focus on what each month will involve.
I hope this entices you to get your new year organized! Let me get into the nitty-gritty.
