getting things done, managEAble, to do list

Getting back to ORDER…(once again)

After being away for four weekends in a row the house is back in the usual chaotic state it seems to prefer and there is a constant battle going on between myself and the house to get it back into ORDER.

To correspond with the sections in my Filofax these are the areas I have divided my life, goals and tasks into and under each of the headings are the minimum amount of tasks I need to complete in the coming week to get back on track.  It is also a list that I  can use again in the future should the same situation arise – which it no doubt will.

If I can get all these tasks done by the end of the week I should find myself more up to date.
