She is doing a yearlong challenge to help us get better organized! Instead of doing a month long challenge, she is breaking it down into 52 week long challenges. Each Friday she will post a new challenge. I’m not only looking forward to her posts but also all of the comments from her readers.
While reading her post from January 6th (here) I followed her link to a previous post she had on brain dumping (here). Her post on Making Lists and Batching Tasks aka Brain Dumping is a must read!! I’ve always been one to make list, but lists like this…..
- Wash laundry
- Pick up living room
- Clean kitchen
- Change linens
Laura talks about breaking each task down. List what needs to be done. I broke down my “Pick up living room” task. You can see my PDF for January 9th here. Why haven’t I thought of this before!! Seeing all of the little things written down in my notebook makes it feel like it is easier to do. I can take an easier task and assign it to one of the kids. My kids don’t do much of anything around the house. One is 3 and the other will be 7 in May. I want to start them off slowly so there isn’t too much a fight J I want to raise them to be good adults not someone that expects someone to do everything for them.
