January is Organizing Month

If you are reading this blog-Id make a guess you might not be as organized as you would like to be.  Want a few tips and tricks to getting organized.  Here is the biggest one--when you have a chore to do and have to be somewhere at a set time--the way to do the chore and get their on time is to Count Backwards to see if you have enough time.

I learned to count backwards when I worked in radio.  Yes, I have a voice for radio. I loved it when I was on air.  Just talking about what my listereners wanted (and the weather and news-every hour) excited me. Every hour I had to count down to make sure their was NO DEAD AIR when the radio station changed over from local to national.  When it was my shift, I would always count backwards to make sure I would switch to national with no nasty silence going from my voice to the national voice. I prided myself on no dead air ever---and usually I succeed.

So, that is my secret to being on time for everything--count backwards and know how long something will take. Google if you need to know how long it will take for the "average" person.

Have an Organized month!
