tips

We get it.  We know you wake up every day … and conquer the world.  So we’ve reposted some helpful hints on how to streamline all of that  just for you.  
  Ok maybe not, just for you … share it with someone who needs it just as bad as you do.

 Working part-time or full-time from home is a big adjustment if you’re used to working in an office full-time. When I made the transition, my biggest challenges were keeping to a schedule, staying organized and not becoming distracted by my surroundings (laundry! dishes!). (Here are  some general tips I wrote a few years ago  about working from home.) I’m constantly tempted to stay in my pajamas all day.  Leggings may not be a far cry  from pajamas, but  at least they’re not my pajamas .  
 In the past three years that I’ve worked full-time from home, I’ve discovered a few helpful tools and wanted to share: 
   A designated office space . When I first started working from home, we turned our guest room into a guest room/office, but that guest room/office is now a nursery. We struggled about the best place to move my office—we tried a corner of the living room for a while and that was great when Isobel was a newborn. Now, though, we made a spot in the corner of our bedroom for my desk, chair and a rug and while I hate staring at our bed all day (I want to get back in it, please), I do feel like I have a designated “work" spot. When I’m sitting in my chair, I feel like I’m at work. It feels different than if I was to take my laptop and sit on the couch. It doesn’t have to be a big space or a fancy space, but it does need to be  your own space .  
   A headset  . I sit on a lot of conference calls and like to use a USB headset in conjunction with my Google Voice account. A headset will usually have a clearer sound quality than using a phone on speaker.  
   Russell + Hazel Acrylic Stapler  . I originally didn’t buy a lot of standard office supplies but soon realized it was better to have them than not have them.  
   Martha Stewart Home Office Accordion File  . Once again—I didn’t expect I’d use/print a lot of paper at home, but I ended up needing several accordion files to keep it all organized.  
   Greenroom Eco Planner  . I live and die by my paper planner. I use my iPhone too, but nothing will ever truly replace a paper planner for me. When you work from home, there aren’t the typical reminders you might get an office environment (“don’t forget—meeting in 15!”), so you have to stay on top of all your shit yourself. Google Calendar is great, but I always record meetings or other items in my paper planner too. I find that the smaller the planner, the more I use it. If it’s not easily portable, I tend not to use it as religiously. That might not be true for you, but something worth mentioning! 
   Martha Stewart Home Office Trays  . I always find I have these little knick knacks floating around my desk and I don’t necessarily want to stick them in a drawer. Trays are good for keeping these organized and visible.  
   Rifle Paper Co Journal  . I keep notes two different ways: on paper and electronically (more on that later). If I’m using paper to keep notes, I prefer to use a hefty journal (in a compact size) so that I can look back and easily find notes from a call two weeks ago, for example. I date each page and write a title at the top—the name of the meeting or project. I use paper to take more general notes—ideas, who said what.  
   Hello Fax  . People still rely on faxes. I do not understand this. But inevitably someone, somewhere will need something faxed to them and that’s where Hello Fax comes in handy. Another great thing is the ability to sign and edit documents electronically. (Makes processing invoices or expense reports easy.)  
   imo app  . My office uses Gchat for internal IM and I connected my account to imo on my iPhone so I’m accessible even if I step away from my computer.  
   Pencil/pen cup  . I hate when I can’t find my good pens. I hate using bad pens. GOOD PENS STAY IN THE CUP.  
   Simplenote  . Some people swear by Evernote, but I’ve never been able to find a way to seamlessly integrate it into my workflow. Simplenote, on the other hand, is something I use all day, everyday. I use ResophNotes on my PC and Notational Velocity on my Mac and have the Simplenote app installed on my iPhone. All the notes sync across these apps and are searchable. The no-frills, minimalist appearance is really great. I use this to take the electronic notes I mentioned above. I use this for more in-depth note-taking: actual action items, to-do lists, general information I need at my finger tips to do my job effectively.  
  Google Drive . Google Drive has really transformed the way I work in the past three years and I love being able to access work documents from whatever device I’m using.  
   Rifle Paper Co. To-Do List .  Keeping a list-type notepad around is handy. I’ll often stick one in my handbag so if I am out and about and need to take notes or get a few ideas, I can jot them down quickly. Once again, I can do this in my phone too, but sometimes paper feels best. Later I’ll either transfer my paper lists to my Google Calendar, paper planner or Simplenote—whichever is most appropriate.  
  Basecamp . For more complex projects, using a collaboration tool like Basecamp can really simplify things so conference calls don’t have to happen every three days to catch people up. It’s invaluable to me as a remote employee because I can write notes, keep track of files and manage projects—and other members of the team can see these edits in real time.  
  Google Voice . I don’t have a dedicated work landline phone but instead use a Google Voice number. When it rings, it also rings my cell, our home phone and Google Voice in Gmail.  
  Dropbox . DO I NEED TO EXPLAIN WHY THIS IS ESSENTIAL? Dropbox is the sun, moon and stars. It is all-power and all-knowing.

National Simplify Your Life Week: Tip #3 Buy Timeless Pieces  
 
 (A message from our intern, Emily –> We think she’s spot on.) 
  Rather than following all the fashion trends that change with each season, I like to keep my wardrobe simple by choosing more timeless attire.   
  I may choose one or two more fashionable items (because it is fun!) on an annual basis but they still remain in my color scheme. I love denim skirts and pants, and assortment of black and brown which never grow old!  
 
   You  can choose as many fun prints as pieces as you’d like … but the key to having a workable wardrobe is keeping staples simple.   
  Do you have what you need for every day work attire?  Do you have denim?  Do you have a timeless jacket?  Shoes that work for any season?  
 The key here is to shop smarter not harder.    Let us help you.

You can choose as many fun prints as pieces as you’d like … but the key to having a workable wardrobe is keeping staples simple.

Do you have what you need for every day work attire?  Do you have denim?  Do you have a timeless jacket?  Shoes that work for any season?

The key here is to shop smarter not harder.  Let us help you.

National Simplify Your Life Week –> Tip #1 “NO IMPULSE BUYS”  
       You don’t need to buy every single gadget, or shoe, or book, or watch just because it calls your name while you’re shopping.  
  It’s not personal.  It’s just doing it’s job.  It’s designed to get your attention.  
 The only personal variables in this situation are your  needs and wants . 
 Do you need the new pair of Jimmy Choos? Or do you just want them?  Do you need a new pair of J. Brand boots + the Fossil wallet + … Or do you just want them? 
 Do not misunderstand us. We know that shopping itself can seem like a list of wants when all we really need to be “clothed” is a large enough piece of cloth. 
  But when we say know your needs vs. wants, we mean:  

     Think about what your days demand.      Does your lifestyle sustain multiple pairs of 6-inch heels?  Or do you really need an arsenal of classy flats to make it from meeting to meeting each day?  
    Think about each you you present.    Are you a teacher/writer/artist/farmer/dream analysis consultant?    Cool with us.  We just hope you’re getting enough sleep.  But while you’re not sleeping, you should be thinking about the fact that these multiple “yous” probably have varying life uniforms.  So, you may not need to purchase the newest floor length gown, but rather, and arsenal of teacher cardigans,   writer bags  , artist/farmer overalls, etc. …  
   Decide whether each purchase is adding value.  You are adults.  You can spend your money on anything you want to … with very little side-eye from us.  However, the key to living a great life is ensuring that every contribution you make to it is just that, a contribution, an enhancement. No purchases that empty your bank accounts and never get worn.   
    So … yea … NO IMPULSE BUYS.  Got it?

Sustainable Spring 2013   has us redefining our lives in SO MANY ways! 
 We&rsquo;re trying to get even more efficient around the office &hellip; and really looking for  (read: hunting down)   all the tips we can get.  
 Today we wanted to share  NINE THINGS SUCCESSFUL PEOPLE DO DIFFERENTLY.  
 
  1.  Get specific .  When you set yourself a goal, try to be as specific as possible. &ldquo;Lose 5 pounds&rdquo; is a better goal than &ldquo;lose some weight,&rdquo; because it gives you a clear idea of what success looks like. Knowing exactly what you want to achieve keeps you motivated until you get there. Also, think about the specific actions that need to be taken to reach your goal. Just promising you&rsquo;ll &ldquo;eat less&rdquo; or &ldquo;sleep more&rdquo; is too vague — be clear and precise. &ldquo;I&rsquo;ll be in bed by 10pm on weeknights&rdquo; leaves no room for doubt about what you need to do, and whether or not you&rsquo;ve actually done it.   2. Seize the moment to act on your goals. Given how busy most of us are, and how many goals we are juggling at once, it&rsquo;s not surprising that we routinely miss opportunities to act on a goal because we simply fail to notice them. Did you really have no time to work out today? No chance at any point to return that phone call? Achieving your goal means grabbing hold of these opportunities before they slip through your fingers. 
 To seize the moment, decide when and where you will take each action you want to take , in advance. Again, be as specific as possible (e.g., &ldquo;If it&rsquo;s Monday, Wednesday, or Friday, I&rsquo;ll work out for 30 minutes before work.&rdquo;) Studies show that this kind of planning will help your brain to detect and seize the opportunity when it arises, increasing your chances of success by roughly 300%. 
  3. Know exactly how far you have left to go. Achieving any goal also requires honest and regular monitoring of your progress — if not by others, then by you yourself. If you don&rsquo;t know how well you are doing, you can&rsquo;t adjust your behavior or your strategies accordingly. Check your progress frequently — weekly, or even daily, depending on the goal.   4. Be a realistic optimist. When you are setting a goal, by all means engage in lots of positive thinking about how likely you are to achieve it. Believing in your ability to succeed is enormously helpful for creating and sustaining your motivation. But whatever you do, don&rsquo;t underestimate how difficult it will be to reach your goal. Most goals worth achieving require time, planning, effort, and persistence. Studies show that thinking things will come to you easily and effortlessly leaves you ill-prepared for the journey ahead, and significantly increases the odds of failure.   5. Focus on getting better, rather than being good. Believing you have the ability to reach your goals is important, but so is believing you can get  the ability. Many of us believe that our intelligence, our personality, and our physical aptitudes are fixed — that no matter what we do, we won&rsquo;t improve. As a result, we focus on goals that are all about proving ourselves, rather than developing and acquiring new skills. 
 Fortunately, decades of research suggest that the belief in fixed ability is completely wrong — abilities of all kinds are profoundly malleable. Embracing the fact that you can change will allow you to make better choices, and reach your fullest potential. People whose goals are about getting better, rather than being good, take difficulty in stride, and appreciate the journey as much as the destination.

We&rsquo;re in the upswing of Sustainable Spring 13, so trust us, we GET that spring cleaning&rsquo;s a lot easier said than done!  We&rsquo;ve been seeking a little help ourselves these days &hellip; so &hellip; we thought we&rsquo;d share a few tips with you!  
 Obsessive- Compulsive’s Guide: Top 12 Organizing Tips, Plus Resources 
 
 Is your life in disarray? Do you have trouble finding things? Do you constantly forget stuff? If so, don’t worry — you’re like most of the human population. 
 Disorganization is a natural state of order. It takes an obsessive-compulsive (like myself) to get the chaos of the universe into some form of organization. 
 If you have a desire to get organized, here are my favorite organization tips … stuff I’ve learned along the way, from other sources and from experimentation. And a list of some useful articles at the end, for those who need more. :) 
  1. Everything in its place . If you just followed one tip on this list, this would be it. Practice this, and you can skip the rest of the tips and articles listed in this post. Seriously. 
 So how do you do it? It’s simple. For everything that you own, designate a place for it. You can even label some of those places, to make it easier to remember. Find something that doesn’t have a place? Designate a place for it. Then simply put things back where they belong when you’re done using them. It sounds simple, but it actually takes a lot of practice to get this habit down. Read  this article for more .   2. Start small. If your life and your home and your office are all incredibly disorganized, don’t try to conquer all of it at once. Choose a small chunk (maybe the top of your desk, or at least one part of it?) and organize that. Then come up with a simple system to keep it organize, and try to practice that system until it becomes habit. Now expand your “zone of organization” further, to a new area. One chunk at a time, you can get organized. 
  3. Create routines . One of the best ways to keep your life organized is to make routines for everything — for errands, laundry, finances, etc. And if you do this one at a time, and make it a habit, you can optimize your life this way. 
  4. Clean as you go . This is a great habit … instead of having big cleaning binges, clean things as you go. Done using some dishes? Wash them right away. Clean the toilet when you finish using it, so it never gets dirty. Read more . 
  5. All info in one place . Use a text document, a wiki, or some other type of system to keep all the information you regularly use and need in one place. You’ll never look for it again.  Read more  and also see how to  organize your family with a binder .
