Life seems full of ever-increasing invisible work and unpaid labour, for instance, paying bills, making appointments, signing forms, or organising carpools. Columbia Law School professor Elizabeth Emens calls this work "life admin."
It's the kind of work that managers and secretaries get paid to do in an office, but we all do invisibly and for free. However, we can take control of these tasks.
Recognise that these are important tasks and deserve your attention.
Find your own administrative personality to find a strategy that will work for you.
Admin temperaments consist of four groups:
The one you will show up for the task is the way you should go. It will make the job less unpleasant.
Since we all have these tasks to manage, we can make it social.
Invite a group to come over with paperwork they had been avoiding. Add something to snack on and make it more memorable.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
