Reclaim your Free Time!

May 14, 2012

Life is short… the phrase may be overused, but it’s certainly true.  Even if we live to a ripe old age of 90 or 100, it still goes by so quickly, and, well let’s face it, it’s short!

I was reminded it of it yesterday for Mother’s Day, standing next to my kiddos who are now 16 and 23… when did they get that old?!

My heroes:  my son Brandon and my daughter Cara

So, how are you spending your short life?  Are you able to enjoy each moment life brings you in a peaceful, simplified environment?  Or, are you constantly fighting the battle of the clutter, spending precious moments looking for that misplaced bottle of Elmer’s Glue or stepping over piles of laundry to get to the one clean t-shirt left in your closet?  Wouldn’t it be great to have more time to do things we want to, instead of wasting time that we could use for other activities if we were *gasp* organized?

Business statistics show that the average employee loses 1 hour per day due to disorganization.  Using that scenario to roughly calculate how much you are losing due to disorganization–take your hourly salary rate.  Now, multiply that number times 365 days per year.  (For example, if your hourly rate is $20, then $20 x 365 = $7,300 per year.)  I’m betting the results of your own estimation will be pretty staggering!  Considering that this estimate is for an employee, my guess is that it’s not even close to the amount of time lost due to our clutter at home!

So often we find ourselves saying, “if only I had time I would _______.”  What would you place in that blank?  Vacation?  Read a book?  Sleep?  Just have some good old-fashioned fun?

Getting organized can help that dream be a reality.
