How to Get a Grip on the Details in Your Life

By Sandy Schroeder

We all live in a world of details. Sometimes everything lines up beautifully. Sometimes crucial details just fly away or hide. Important receipts, phone numbers, or instructions wind up missing. Then life gets complicated.

If you are still looking for the best way to corral all of the details in your life, these tips that I have seen work, and some from Lifehack, may help

Start with you – Pulling everything together comfortably is the goal. Think about the times of the day that you are the most effective. Think about how you work, on the go, or at a desk, with your computer, smartphone or written notes. Consider ongoing deadlines, commitments, family needs and job demands.

Pin down dates and times – A lot of time can be lost if you have to hunt for meeting or appointment details. Start with a master calendar that works for you and update the details on a daily or weekly basis. Enter key family, work, and personal dates and times.  When you do an overview, you will avoid double bookings, and spot open times. The more you use your overview the better projections you can make to get the work done, and plan for the future.  

Keep good notes – As you move through life, list everything: meeting details, grocery lists, birthdays, anniversaries, medical notes. You may have an excellent memory, but why load yourself up with all of those details? List them, file them and move on.

Pick spots for everything – Use one set of files at work, another at home. Label everything and file the accumulation daily. At home you may have a system in your kitchen, and another at a desk. The secret is finding a slot for everything, and putting it there.

Extend the organization – Consider what needs to be decluttered in your life. Workplaces, kitchens, family rooms, home offices and garages just seem to attract continuous clutter. Pick the spot that needs the most attention and start sifting.

Keep what you value and use – Everybody has priorities. Single out the things that are meaningful to you and your family at home. Pull together the things that are the most effective for you at work. Store things that you will need later.

A friend of mine inherited a family home that was filled to the brim with antiques and memories. He singled out an extra room as the holding and review area, working his way through everything. Keeping, sharing, discarding, donating and selling all sorts of things worked for him.

Start with what works for you and make the effort to get a grip. Be prepared to be pleased.
