Lists Will Organize Your Life

I think I may have met my list-making match! Sarah Welch from GetButtonedup.com is a task master, productivity expert and organizing guru. Her site gives tools to get everything in your life in check. I’ve guest blogged for her and really admire the empire she’s built on being on top of your game!

If I try to get through the day without a list, I lose my ability to concentrate. I feel overwhelmed because my short-term memory is trying to “remember” things on my list by endlessly looping tasks at random, which ultimately makes me feel I have more to do than I actually do. When I start the day or week with a master list (which I sync up to my calendar), I can crank through things like nobody’s business. I feel sane, productive, and never worry for a second that important things are falling through the cracks. Read more

Tips for Cutting Down on Email Clutter

I want to share a fabulous website that I recently found for organizing tips.  It’s called GetButtonedup.com and there are lots of tricks and advice for getting everything in your life in order.

I’ve met with one of their founders, Sarah Welch, and she really knows her stuff!  I’m going to guest blog on their site later this month. But for now here’s one of their videos for those of you who are scared of your email inbox!  I know how difficult it can be to sort through all the mail — but these ideas can help reduce your inbox anxiety.

Still feeling overwhelmed? Check out my course Take Back Your Inbox, which I created to help you get control over your emails!
