Lighten Your Load, Lighten Your Life

Fall Is Finally Here!                                                                                                                                                     September 22, 2017

While it still feels like summer out, fall is officially here and soon enough it will be time to store away those sundresses and sandals to make room for blue jeans and boots.

As you tuck those summer items into bins to make room for warmer clothes, be sure you wore it, loved it, and fit it. If not, add it to your donation pile and don't store it for another season only to hang it back in your closet not to wear it.

Sticky Notes Everywhere                                                                                                                                      September 30, 2017

Do you have sticky notes plastered all over your desk or counter top with phone numbers of people you need to call back?

Do you want to reference an old message but realize you deleted it from your phone and never wrote it down?

Do you sometimes find phone numbers without an accompanying name and wonder who you were supposed to call?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, try the exercise below to keep track of your messages:

1. Get a spiral bound notebook and hook a black pen and a red pen to the cover.

2. When you listen to a message, write the date, name, message, and number with the black pen.

3. Once you return the call, cross through the entry with the red pen and note the date and time you returned the call.

On more than one occasion I have flipped back weeks and even months to find a name or number. This is especially handy for people you don’t speak with frequently enough to add to your contacts in your phone.
