Organisation – Day 4

1 Comment

How many times have we heard that time management is the key?  I believe that statement is so true.

Organisation is not all about putting things in boxes/shelves or spending hours labelling and colour-co-ordinating our stuff.

Managing or organising our time is just as important, if not more so.  Many years ago, when I was a stay-at-home Mum, I remember telling The Duke that if I didn’t get things done by 9am they did not get done.  What I was saying was that I am a morning person and I am much more likely to effectively achieve my goals if I start early in the morning.  I also know that lists are my best friend.  I write shopping lists, lists of jobs I need to get done when I get home, lists of phone calls I need to make, lists of gift suggestions, menu plans and so on.  I could probably make a list of my lists 🙂

I frequently surprise myself at just how much I can achieve.  For instance, I may put rice on to cook in the microwave for 18 minutes and in that time I can take a load of washing off the line and fold it, hang out another load and come back and the rice is still not finished cooking.

I have been writing this while I have dough for hot cross buns mixing in the breadmaker.  It is nearly finished so I will go and turn the oven on to warm as they need to rise for another half hour before baking.  I also need to empty the compost and wash the dishes.

I am taking the buns to work tomorrow to share for morning tea.  I will take a photo of them when they are out of the oven and show you tomorrow.

So, what are your best tips for organising your time?
