Home Time Management Step 3: Figure Out Your First Area of Focus
Today we're going to focus on Step 3 of your home time management plan. Figuring out your first area of focus.
It seems only logical to pick one to start with.
There are several reasons for this:
• It Gives You a Good Solid Starting Point
• It Keeps You from Feeling Overwhelmed
• It Keeps You from Overextending Yourself
• It Keeps You Focused
• You Can Accomplish Your Goal Quicker
Let's look at each of these just a little closer.
It Gives You a Good Solid Starting Point
Many people have great ideas about what their problems are and what they'd like to see change but never pick that starting point and so never actually start. It would be like walking around and around in the grocery store because you couldn't figure out what to take home for dinner.
It Keeps You from Feeling Overwhelmed
I don't really need to tell you that you'll feel absolutely overwhelmed if you try to tackle too many changes at one time.
It Keeps You from Overextending Yourself
This kind of goes along with feeling overwhelmed except that you may feel comfortable with tackling several major changes at once. If you do so, you'll likely be overextending yourself and not able to give your full time and attention to any of them.
It Keeps You Focused
Speaking of attention… focus is a powerful force in the whole "change" equation. Without focus you're not going to accomplish much even if you've followed all the other steps.
You Can Accomplish Your Goal Quicker
It shouldn't come as any surprise that when we devote all out time and attention to a single task we can accomplish it much quicker than if that attention is shared among several tasks.

  • Home Time Management Step 3: Figure Out Your First Area of Focus
  • Today we’re going to focus on Step 3 of your home time management plan. To quickly review, the first is to examine (briefly) your current problems. The second is to identify what changes you want to make. Figuring out your first area of focus is the next logical step.
  • That's because out of the several problems you listed and the several changes you'd like to see, it seems only logical to pick one to start with.
  • There are several reasons for this:It Gives You a Good Solid Starting PointIt Keeps You from Feeling OverwhelmedIt Keeps You from Overextending YourselfIt Keeps You FocusedYou Can Accomplish Your Goal Quicker  Let's look at each of these just a little closer.
  • It Gives You a Good Solid Starting PointA good solid starting point is essential in… well… starting. Many people have great ideas about what their problems are and what they'd like to see change but never pick that starting point and so never actually start. It would be like walking around and around in the grocery store because you couldn't figure out what to take home for dinner.
  • So, picking a single area to tackle first helps ensure that you get started on something.
  • For instance, if you spend way too much time picking up around the house and trying to keep it looking good while your kids are busy messing it up and laying around playing games… that might be your first area to tackle. If, however, you feel severe pressure night after night with mealtime madness, and end up serving… I'll be nice here and say not the most nutritious food… then you may want to start with directing your energy towards creating weekly meal plans.
  • It Keeps You from Feeling OverwhelmedI don't really need to tell you that you'll feel absolutely overwhelmed if you try to tackle too many changes at one time. And, I don't know about you but sometimes when I would feel overwhelmed I'd end up on the couch watching TV… and I didn't even care for watching TV.
  • That feeling just drains you instead of energizing you. So keeping yourself from feeling overwhelmed is one of the best things you could do to ensure your success.
  • It Keeps You from Overextending YourselfThis kind of goes along with feeling overwhelmed except that you may feel comfortable with tackling several major changes at once. If you do so, you'll likely be overextending yourself and not able to give your full time and attention to any of them.
  • It Keeps You FocusedSpeaking of attention… focus is a powerful force in the whole "change" equation. Without focus you're not going to accomplish much even if you've followed all the other steps. Let's be honest… it takes focus to tackle that house that hasn't been cleaned in a good long while. It takes focus to create those weekly meal plans. It takes focus… and a whole lot of patience… to teach a child to clean the bathroom from the bottom up. And it definitely takes focus to teach them how to do their laundry.
  • You Can Accomplish Your Goal QuickerIt shouldn't come as any surprise that when we devote all out time and attention to a single task we can accomplish it much quicker than if that attention is shared among several tasks. If you're working on creating those weekly meal plans but your 6 year-old keeps asking questions about what he's supposed to do to clean the bathroom and your teen keeps interrupting with laundry questions… well, you may as well try again later. Your attention is probably shot for the time being.
