Creating an Organized Office by Putting Your Keys in The Same Place Every Night - Tami Ross | Living the Dream

I talk about baby steps a lot because sometimes we get so overwhelmed by the project at hand that we don’t do anything at all.  My daughter is learning to play the violin and there are days when she doesn’t understand why she can’t pick it up and make it sound like her CD.  I tried to explain how it’s a lot like walking… once you know you know but you need to get strong enough to do it and it takes practice and determination.  She of course was shocked that she didn’t always know how to walk!

We are like that too.  We expect to pick up a new idea or skill and have it work that day.  We forget we need to practice and create a new habit.  Instead we get frustrated and sometimes quit thinking there was something wrong with us.

YOU CAN TEACH AN OLD DOG NEW TRICKS!

The “trick” is the ritual.  If you want to maintain an organized office; start with one thing.  Put your car keys in the same place every night.  You will be surprised by how much time you save NOT looking for them.  Make a list of all the things you use on a daily basis and put those things within arm’s reach of your desk.    The few minutes you save not looking for things will get you enough time at the end of the day to clear off your desk and get ready for tomorrow.

The ritual of clearing off the desk, especially for those of us working from home, is our “commute” back into the home.  Allow yourself 15 minutes of sanity and letting go time so you can mentally shut down your day.

Take the skill you want to learn and create your ritual.  I mentally prepare for my day by adding a penny to my wealth.  It’s a habit that creates instant clarity and focus for me so I can begin my day.  My daughter bows and gives thanks before starting a violin lesson.  It’s her way of focusing on learning instead of what she cannot do…yet.

What do you want to learn?
