I recently got a facebook message from my cousin asking if I’d mailed a check for something I had purchased from her shop when we were visiting out of town. I said, of course I had mailed it! I mean, I’m organized. I remember writing the check and setting it in the ‘to be mailed’ [...]

The times I’m late & frazzled are the times when I think I can get so much more done than I have time for. Just one more load of wash, one more email, tweet an oh so witty observation, run just one quick errand before I have to be somewhere. Just one last thing before….oh [...]
A few months ago, I got really irritated with my husband. He put something in the microwave to heat up and then just, well, stood there. Waiting for it. I just wanted to say, ‘you know, it’s not going anywhere and while you are waiting, why not fill the dog dish?’. Ok, I did say [...]
Liz talks about how planning out your day, your route and your activities ahead of time can save you time and headaches.

I work with a lot of clients who have trouble remembering things, or misplace their stuff. I always tell them that it is pretty normal to do this – even us <professionals have had this happen. But the longer I do this, and the more I streamline my life, the more I realize that the [...]
I’ve been invited to join Facebook about a dozen times over the last few weeks. “Friend” me, they say. Some actually are friends, some are business acquaintances, some relatives. I keep wondering – do I give myself a “face” or not. At this point, I”m thinking not. My friend, Angela, keeps asking why not so [...]
Anyone that I’ve ever worked with in their office knows that I love project folders. I’ve had many clients say “well, I don’t have any projects”. Oh yes, you do. Everyone has projects – you just call them by a different name. It can be an event you are helping with like a charity auction [...]
