Key Ideas

Don’t Rely On Your Memory

If you want to remember things, don't rely on your memory. Put it in writing or in a digital notebook.

Make Back-Ups Of Everything

  • Make sure to back up your computer files.
  • Make duplicates for your car and home keys.
  • Scan your IDs, passports and bank details, and put it all in a secured folder on your computer.

Keep all your financial records, birth certificates, land titles and insurance in one folder, preferably in a safe.

Scan Your Photos

Scan all your photos to save space and ensure that you don’t lose these precious memories. 

Clean Up Regularly

Schedule a time every day to de-clutter and to clean up.  15 - 30 minutes should be sufficient.

Keep The Hotspots Clean

Take note of the places at home or at the office that collect clutter and tidy them up daily.

Get A Money Management App

Use apps to record your monthly accounts and spending.  

This will help you to know exactly where your money goes. The app can also send notifications to remind you when accounts are due.

Recycle

Donate all unused books and clothes to a charity or sell them.

Declutter

As an experiment, try to donate or throw out something you don't use before buying something else.

Alternatively, throw out one unused item every day for a month.

Check Expiration Dates

Dispose of expired canned foods and medicines to minimize the clutter and make space for new supplies.

Learn To Delegate Tasks

Create a list of responsibilities for each family member. Review the list with them weekly to ensure that all tasks are being attended to. De-cluttering is easier as a team effort.

Put Things Away Immediately

Practise keeping your home and life organized by packing things away immediately after using them. It may take a few minutes now but will save more time later.

Unsubscribe

Unread magazines, catalogues and email are just a waste of time, money and space. If you haven't read a single email from a newsletter or other publication, just unsubscribe. 

Make An Inventory

Create an itemized list of home or office supplies so that you don’t run out. Don't overstock.

Label Stored Food

Minimize food wastage by labelling all items in your fridge. Include the expiration date.

Organize your cleaning schedule

It is tiresome to clean everything on a single day. Rather create daily, weekly and monthly schedules for cleaning, distributing the tasks evenly.

Developing Habits

We all have habits ingrained in our lives. Most of our good habits (if any) take us to eventual long-term success, and our bad habits take our time, health, happiness and money. Make a list of what all you do as a habit daily and see which ones are good and which ones are not.

Habits like spending hours on social media, binge shopping, and lying on the couch are a few examples of bad habits.

Planning Ahead

Life is unpredictable, but planning is still important. Use your phone's calendar and to-do list, or install an app to create daily and weekly plans:

  • Plan even for small errands.
  • Keep in mind that things take longer than you expect.
  • Block chunks of time, or an entire day for a task.

Not having a plan

We are spending more of our time in environments that have their own agendas. Most of the entities in our lives really want us to make mistakes in their favor.

Control your environment

... or it will control you. We can’t control our environment everywhere we go, but we have more control than we usually choose to exercise.

If you banish distractions and control your calendar you can make sure your environment is ripe for productivity.

Write everything down

We all know how fallible our brains can be yet we routinely trust ourselves to remember and follow through on things.

If it’s important, write it down. Reminders, post-its, and calendars are all good tools.
