Brunilde Piazza October 31, 2020 Family Checklist
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.
In the ever widening circles of family and work, women need to reexamine their own lifestyles to manage stress and avoid burnout. Embracing a more balanced lifestyle means reconnecting with yourself and rediscovering the pleasure in the small things you used to do. These seven stress and management tips will help you learn how to create a more balanced life and manage your own stresses. Identify your five most important values which you can use as a "filter" to help you assess how you manage your time. This will help you decide which activities are worth pursuing and which you need to drop.
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.
You can do all this with a Daily Planning Sheet (you may have to create one), a pen, a timer, a calculator and a decision. It is best to do this on a computer and there is no more ideal tool than a Spreadsheet like Excel. You can work up a template (simple or complicated) that will allow you to do all the above points in just a few minutes (literally less than 5).
While this is a basic checklist for planning a funeral, there are many resources available on the web. Do not hesitate to do some research. Though it may seem strange, consider how to handle digital life. And do not forget to consider what will happen to your pets after you pass. It`s this kind of pre-planning that eases the strain on you and your loved ones.
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?
