We’ve all heard of Prime Time TV, the time of day when there are the most TV viewers. This is an advertiser’s favorite time of day. Maximum viewers means maximum revenue. It’s the time of day they get the most outof their advertising money, and they use that time to their advantage.
We have Prime Time too – our own daily peak performance
times. We just need to understand our bodies and minds in order to get the
most out of those times. When is your Prime Time for concentration
Are you an early bird or a night owl?
Do you come back from lunch fired up or sluggish?
Do you get a second wind at night or are you wiped out in the evening?
Your Prime Time hours are unique to you. Consider taking a few days to figure out when you are at your best, so you too can get the most out of every day. On page 17 of my book, You Can Be Clutter-free and Organized – Fast, Easy Organizing Solutions for Paper Piles and Your Office, there are more strategies to help you use your time effectively.
Once you understand your Prime Time hours, try and use that time well. Let phone calls go to voice mail and mindless work wait. Instead, use that valuable time to work on challenging tasks that need your concentration, problem solving or creative skills. See what happens when you embrace your Prime Time and use it well.

When I am not sure whether to keep something or not, I ask myself the Golden Question: “If I saw it in a store today, would I buy it?” When I work with clients organizing their closets, 90% of the time I get an instant “NO”.
Remember to WOW yourself after you complete each section of your closet!
Give yourself permission to cross some items off your list, or at least say, “Not this year”. One of my clients used an expression that I love. When she was working on one area and became concerned about another, she just said to that area, “It’s not your turn!”
Writer and linguist Lin Yutang says, “Besides the noble art of getting things done, there is the nobler art of leaving things undone.”
A snowflake is tiny, but many of them together can have a huge impact.
If done regulary, little organizing projects can also have a huge impact on your life!
Each day, pick one small item to do and see the difference!
What will your snowflake change be today?
I would love to hear how you benefit from your snowflake changes.
