Why You Should Get It Done Early

I’m over on Life Your Way talking about Why You Should Get It Done Early — a concept that has revolutionized my productivity and helped me to be a lot less stressed about life. Here’s a snippet of the post:

Get it done early. Such a simple concept, but it’s revolutionary if you implement it. I know, because I’ve experienced the fruit in my own life!

You see, for years, I’ve struggled with being on time. I was always waiting until the last minute to do what I needed to do and then I’d breathlessly rush out the door barely making it to my appointment in one piece — and late again, as usual.

It wasn’t just getting places on time that I struggled with. Getting things done on time was also my constant nemesis.

Oh, I always had great intentions. But inevitably, something would come up that seemed to need my attention more. Or I’d get distracted and put things off until the very last minute.

    This is such a simple concept, but so important. I love your suggestions about getting ready for church on Saturday night, right down to putting the diaper bag into the van. Duh! Such a great idea, because more than once we’ve forgotten it in the rush.

    Also, I recently started a blog. I love your idea about posting all of next week’s posts this week so I don’t feel rushed and behind. That’s going to be a big help to me! Once again, a perfectly timed post. 🙂

  • I need to start putting out my keys and fully packed purse by the door several hours before I am expected to go out, those two items are always the things that I end up searching for last minute and cause my family to be in a rush .

  • Great post! I am going to start, NOW!!! I struggle in the same areas you used to and look forward to becoming more efficient! 🙂

    Thank you for this post. Amazing how God knows exactly what you need, when you need it.
    Today I needed to be reminded to get things done early!

  • So funny that I posted about a very similar topic that same day! Giving yourself more time (so you will be early!).

    It really does make a wealth of difference. The days I am ahead of schedule go better, I feel better, I treat my family better, get more accomplished, etc.

    Definitely a goal worth pursuing!

    I *loved* Mandi’s post from last year – I even printed it off and saved it in my homemaking binder in the “inspiration” section.

    Your post was great, too! I really enjoyed the practical application and suggestions for specific situations.
