Simplify - Prioritise - One Step at a Time

It can be so easy to get overwhelmed with modern life. There always seems to be so much to do, so many things to deal with, so much *stuff*. These are some tips to help.
  • Simplify, get rid of the things that are causing clutter, both mental and physical. Weed out the non essentials, they won't be missed and you will feel much clearer.
  • Prioritise what is truly important.
  • Deal with all the absolute *must do's*
  • List all the *want to do* things, in order of priority.
  • Take the thing from the top of your list and do that, immerse yourself in it.
Just focus on the task at hand. Take things one step at a time, deal with the actual moment. By only tackling the thing right in front of you, it will prevent the avalance of *shoulds* from hurtling down the hill of tasks and swamping you beneath them.

Remember - Simplify - Prioritise - One step at a time - Good luck!

"The ability to simplify means to eliminate the unnecessary so that the necessary may speak." -Hans Hofmann

Nice post...

Over the years, I have focused more on multi-tasking...but I think it's better to just prioritize and do one thing at a time.

When we are functioning well and *are up to date* with all that we perceive we need/want to do, then it is fun to multi task.

I often do it myself, as done well, you can get a lot achieved that way.

Just got to watch the tendancy to slip into *overload* when we stat to get overwhelmed again! OR . . "Oooh no, here comes that avalanche again - Aaaaah!" :-)

Thanks very much for dropping by and for your comment, much appreciated.

I so need this reminder right now! I have a mountain of put-off paring down to do, yet I can do it with vigor when I keep the goal in sight that this lightens my load on every level. From my understanding of the law of dynamic prosperity, we also need to clear out the old to allow the space for needs to be full-FILLED. Hard to pour new prosperity into a cup overflowing with stuff we don't need. Thanks, Susannah!

Hi Joyce,
"Hard to pour new prosperity into a cup overflowing with stuff we don't need" - that's a really good reminder about clearing out the old to make space for the new - (certainly makes spring clutter clearing more appealing!)

Thanks for coming by, It's always good to hear from you.

I just posted this to my best friends FB page, because her mountain of To Do's threatens her all the time.

What an inspiring little world you've created! I just love :)
