The first two weeks of lockdown I embraced with a flurry of excited activity. I was just moving in to my new home office in the garden #THEHIVE which as it happened was such great timing. I had a long list of jobs to do around the house which we’ve just finished renovating. At the same time, I got sucked into some sort of ‘skills-acquisition’ black hole. Loads of courses on writing an on-line course (something I have wanted to do forever), Live sessions on finding your tribe on instagram, what hashtags to use, how and when, how to write engaging content, video for Instagram, coaching masterclasses, Pinterest tips and tricks, Zoom calls on how to pivot your business, IGTV on flipping your business to on-line....
I signed up to them all - and then started to feel exhausted and overwhelmed. I spent the next week of isolation not doing very much other than worrying constantly that everyone else had attended all of the above sessions - and were now actually applying all of this new found knowledge to their sparkly-over-achieving-recently-flipped-now-online-business. I also assumed they were doing Joe Wicks' exercise class in the morning and baking banana bread in the afternoon. *Very large exhale.
It can be difficult to get organised if you don’t have the right sort or amount of storage in your home. If you are in your home more often than usual right now you could certainly be noticing the areas that aren't working for you! We all want our homes to work like clockwork and be easy to keep clean and tidy. Ultimately, this will make your life easier and could save you both time and money. How often have you bought a replacement for a lost item only to find the original days or weeks later? And of course, you can’t put a price on the lost hours spent searching for elusive items!
