This past weekend, the eastern portion of the country experienced a noreastern storm that broke many records. In Philadelphia, they received over 28 inches of snow.
It got me thinking about organizing, of course.
Being organized is more than just keep your household under control and having good time management tools. It's a way of life.
When this large snow fall began, I quickly decided that I would be breaking the project of snow removal down into smaller, more manageable pieces, just like any other larger project, in order to get it done and make it easier for me to handle.
Therefore, I decided that the best way to handle it was to shovel the snow in intervals. When my son and I woke up, we took care of most of it, but with the storm still not over, we knew that we would finish the job when it was. So, instead of waiting until the entire storm ended, we began chipping away, as it were, at the project. This made it easier later in the day when the temperature started to drop and the surfaces became more icy. I am quite aware that many people just stayed in all day and procrastinated and now, Sunday morning, their cars are still buried in the snow and ice. That decision will now make it harder for them to dig out because now they will have to deal with the more difficult conditions.
There is a lesson to be learned here. When taking on any type of project, including snow removal, create a plan of action as to how you will take that project and break it down into smaller, more manageable pieces and you will find that you get the whole project completed much more easily.
We are expecting another large storm by mid-week and you can be assured, it will be managed the same way. One portion at a time.
If you love the snow, enjoy. For me, I can't wait til Spring!
Have a great week and remember, if you are overwhelmed with the prospect of getting organized, contact A BETTER SPACE. I will be glad to help.
