Brunilde Piazza October 31, 2020 Family Checklist
Effective time management can mean all the difference in your overall quality of life. For instance, do you get to the end of the day and wonder where the time went? If so do you find that you are distracted all the way home by the tasks you know you should have finished? Most people have some kind of experience like this, but it does not have to be the norm. Let`s take a look at strategies you can use to make the most of your professional time so you are not carrying those tasks around mentally during your personal time.
Approaching your housework in an organized manor will make it both more complete and easier in the long run. You do not have to create checklists like NASA or anything, just use them to remind you of all the items that need attention, and so that nothing is left out. These checklists will help you to stay accountable to yourself and your family, and help you provide them with the beautiful home you want them to have.
Think of the many areas where you could develop a checklist and make your life safer, easier, and more predictable. Is it tech failure? (What to do when your hard drive crashes) Health Problems? (If you or your child is really not feeling well, what to look for and do?) Family Emergency? (Who calls whom, where are the healthcare proxies, and who is in charge of what?) Workplace Emergencies? (Weather issues, security problems, and accidents.) Would not it be easier, under these circumstances to pull up a sheet then try to figure out, in sixty seconds, what you are forgetting?
Next establish which Goal-Oriented Tasks you want to finish this day. Each must be specific. These can be complete tasks or milestones which are part of a larger program. Estimate the time it will take to FINISH each action. As you do this, write each task and its duration on a Daily Planning Sheet. A well-managed day must be realistic. There are always unexpected actions. You Daily Plan should set aside a definite amount of time (30, 60 or more minutes) for the UNEXPECTED. This will also give you the awareness so you can control these events.
