Today on the podcast, I am going to share with you how being organized and living an organized life allows you to be more productive and be able to handle those unexpected emergencies and events that come into every person's life.

Change is inevitable. Unexpected events are going to happen. They are guaranteed, but they're unexpected.

A few weeks ago, I had a series of events happen in a matter of just two to three days that cost me 80 hours out of the next two weeks of my life. Some of these were good changes. Some of these were bad changes. All of them were unexpected.

I'm going to walk you through those 16 days, how those events unfolded over that time, what ended up getting sacrificed out of my schedule, and how I got back on track.

So what did I do?

#1 - I managed my expectations.

#2 – My systems are rock solid.

#3 - I used my phone for almost everything!

#4 - I remained calm so that the kids and Greg remained calm too.

So this getting organized thing, it's a big deal. It's a really big deal. It has a huge impact, not only on your space and how your space looks, but on your ability to drop everything and take care of your kids or the people that you work with so they can go and grieve or do what they need to do and you can pick up the pieces and not be a hot mess or all stressed out about it. It's important for your marriage if you're married. The more organized you are, the more time you have for those people that you love and for yourself.

The quickest way to get to a productive life is to get your home organized. Join me in the 100 Day Home Organization Challenge and let’s do this!
