7. Consolidate. Consolidate means to “merge, combine, unite, join”. Look for something in your life that is scattered and consolidate -- group of small bills, hand lotions, hobby supplies. I’m using consolidate in this case to mean either to literally combine as all into one container, but also in collecting like items together. Instead of spreading your collectibles all overrepparttar house, combine them into one beautiful cabinet for impact. Consolidate toys or reading material/bills/papers by type. You’ll be able to seerepparttar 148847 duplicates easily and free up some time and space.

8. Dorepparttar 148848 opposite. If you find that you’re constantly having to run torepparttar 148849 next room to retrieve a pair of (for example) scissors, that’s a clue that you need to *add* a pair where you need them. This isrepparttar 148850 opposite of consolidate. Just be careful with this one, and make sure that you really userepparttar 148851 item enough to make it worthy of taking uprepparttar 148852 valuable real-estate in your home or office or closet.

9. Predictability We can’t knowrepparttar 148853 future. No one can. But about everyday things, it’s usually pretty easy to make a fairly accurate prediction of what consequences of your actions will be. A first ‘mistake’ is simply a learning experience, finding out information that you didn’t have originally. A second ‘mistake’ is not exercising your skill of predicting. Practice predicting, and make informed choices to go in a direction you want to.

10. Assign Value. A big mistake I see in my coaching clients is not assigning a true value to your time, to your energy, to your money, and torepparttar 148854 “real estate” (space) of your home or office. Realize that for each thing you say Yes to -- from a pair of shoes to watching a movie -- you have said No to something else. Always ask yourself - is this *valuable* enough to me to bump something else from my closet, my schedule, my money?

Taking steps one at a time and keeping your plan realistic gives you two important benefits. The order and precision of a plan brings confidence.
