Finding a Good working pattern/spilling milkshake on my desk/My desk saying look at me I need cleaning

Having a good work balance is important but if you find your work is beginning to sink then it means that the pattern that you follow needs to be changed, it can often be that you've given yourself too much to do. We find we can't get it all done. You need to change the pattern so you can. 



I do like my work pattern as I am ticking off a lot rather than drawing a cross because I haven't. I do think my work pattern needs to be tweeked, I do think if I had a calendar in view I can use that to set challenges and deadlines, but I like working when things aren't set in stone so I work on the blogs I want to each day. I am not good with repatition, so I like to mix my work up. I do have a routine, because of the pattern of my work has helpled me keep withi it, but I have pattern where I will listen to a Youtube video and then bit by bit work on a blog post or work on a book I am writing. 

Often if you have so many ideas you can end up with lots of projects that are finished and then this destroys the energy to actually wanting to finish anything.Change the pattern. Spend the mornings just going over what needs to be done, and check how each project you have completed the response and STOP MULTITASKING! I was someone who did believe in this, but now when I focus on one item at a time easier, and when we do that, our attention to detail is better and you naturally start to prioritize. 

For me when I start my day I will see what is already open to go through what I want and need to do first. So if I have a Day in a life video to upload, then I will make sure this is done first and doesn't get left behind. If I need to do a video and a post Sponsored that this is done once I have edited that Day in a life video, and its being uploaded and has been. 

If I have any outside appointments then these may be at various times and days. So I will manage my other work either before the time of this appointment or after. If a book is due out and I see that I am getting behind I have a pattern where I can get videos and blogs scheduled and written in bulk, I can then have a pattern of then working on my books and focus on these as I have videos and blogs already set up. 

A good work pattern is not constantly working all day but where I do take more breaks than work. Yes I may still work late some days but rest and recuperation is important too and having a work pattern so you can spend time with family.

Areas where it doesn't work

 I find whenever it comes to Organizing I find that when I plan to organize I don't so is an area where it doesn't work, for me and that I can manage. 

This week I have been putting together a Clean with me video which was filmed over a course of 5 days or so, as I find tidying and cleaning areas one at a time, to be more effective and manageable for me. 

I am looking forward having what I can really call "My own home" to potter around again, as I do enjoy that, and I do have a order in doing this is by, going into each room at a time, and working on the main room I like to spend most of the time to areas I don't. 

When I do this, I don't really set it out in stone but there is a logic in my madness, and that is pottering around is more productive for me rather than sitting down and planning tidying up and pottering around. 

The areas where I do try to organize is my work and I will spend time to work out what I want to do next and what I need to do, but I don't really plan what I am going to be filming but keep tabs on the videos I have done. 

For me the word "Organize" to me, is simple ideas that don't take that much time, and helps me to flexible, making room for not just the things I have to do, but the thing I want to do too.

So just doing bit a day can make all the difference. Check out my New EBook: Things to change one day at a time

Ways in which you can recycle/ How you can save time packing/storing items and make them functional items

If I have a parcel from Amazon who I my go to online shop I will always keep the box, as I am in the process of moving and it saves having to buy a load of boxes as they are there ready. I am also liking that online stores are using reusuable delivery sealable bags, as I have used this to put some clothes in ready to put in a suitcase when my love brings them round, to then pack without it taking too long.

I use boxes for storing certain items too, and I used to love Nigella Lawson as she would have a trunk in her shed where she would keep different frying pans in, of ones she loved using, but didn't use all of the time, and if you have a plastic microwave bowl these are great to use for a Lazy Susan and I have even used a Pot Noodle Pot as a pen holder on my desk.


I use shoes boxes as a bedside organizer where I put spare USB sticks and old bank cards.

I love any item that can be recycled, because it reduces waste, helps clear up spaces and saves me money on having to buy carts all of the time. 

So look at the thing you throw away to see if they can be reused.

Look on Pinterest, which is my go to platform for ideas.

5 Tips on Establishing a Good Work Routine/Being a content creator

Hello and welcome! This week I am giving 5 Tips on Establishing a Good Work Routine, and it is something that if you too wish to be a content creator, writing blogs, books, online courses and create Youtube videos you have to get used to, and so here is a video giving you those tips:


It often means working evenings and weekends too, but if you have a good work routine it helps with balance and creating time for other things you want to do, and so for me it isn't work as it was once a hobby that has stemmed into a career but it also starts to open the door to other opportunities and once you start to develop a good routine it really helps with not getting burn out and to continue to enjoy it.

I am in the process of creating a Content Creators Planner, so stay posted as I will let you know, once this has been completed and becomes available.

Many thanks for reading,

Creating a blog post/10 tips/Demonstration of setting a blog on Google Blogger and Wordpress

 Hello and welcome! So I am now making videos for this blog site now and in this video I am talking about Creating a Blog post, which has 10 tips on creating a blog and give a demonstrating on how to set up one using Google Blogger and Wordpress. Click on the picture below to watch this video: https://youtu.be/BCoddqr2txo


I also do write a bloglovin post about Blog writing aswell as writing books, check this out via this link:  https://www.bloglovin.com/.../creating-regular-weekly...

The majority of my work is brainstorming and researching and developing work balance to schedule my blogs to make my postings consistent and relative. 

Never write about topics you do not know as it will show in your work, but doesn't mean you can't learn about new things to implement them into a blogpost as sometimes being a novice is something can help with building your audience as you are using it to tell your story of a new thing you have tried and this can encourage feedback. 

You want to show your audience that what you are sharing is real as everyone can know when someone has used a template, rather than written off the cuff which alot of it is and is original. 

So I wish you well and gave a good week and see you in the next blog. 

Many thanks for reading,

Managing My Work Load/Having a Simple system

Hello and welcome to another Organize4thebetter blog and I have created a new video for this weeks post, showing the new Notebook I have developed in a more functional system. 


I use a basic A4 notebook and have plenty of pages to Map out my work, schedule in blogs already drafted and scheduled to go live and have pages where I can Brainstorm. 

A Notebook is a functional system that keeps managing my workload Simple and not havin to search through to find items and notes I have written. 

Manage my work is important so I don't write the same content and keep it regular and original, and keeping in touch with what is happening around me. 

So I hope this blog has been helpful, and many thanks for reading,

Brain Storming and how it helps me keep my work some how organised

So I am someone who gives myself too much to do. So I do have to rein myself in to stop doing so and just take a breath now and then. 

Writing blogs, books, online courses and creating video content, I have to manage my workload so it still gets done but I don't get overloaded with stuff to do each day. 

The one thing I do on a regular basis in Brainstorm, because then it helps keep my content original and relevant to keep my readers entertained but help them at the same time. See picture of an example:


I don't clean my desk everyday or brainstorm everyday but do it when I feel I am needing some more inspiration and more fresh new content that is from my own experience aswell as sharing tips that have worked for me too, from other videos and blog content. 

Stick to one notepad for the remainder of your work, as having so many can get you bogged down and like. This is too much and I can't manage all these notepads and becomes a burden rather than a luxury to write for a living. 

I am filled with pride now that I am a full time professional writer and content creater, but also because I love being part of the writing world and be in touch with like minded people. 

So do brainstorm. It doesn't have to be in one go, do some research to help you and doing other things can help you add things to it and then you be surprised with other ideas that come your way. 

You can even get a magnetic wipe away white board to brain storm and some use a Konman board to brain storm with stick notes for a project like a blog series that I often do and other ideas you want to add to your content or projects. 

Also some use a IPad to brainstorm and pinterest to create board of project ideas in, and even create one using Word, Publisher or Notepad onto your phone, tablet or IPad.

So keep going and do what I do watch a video or a audiobook whilst you brainstorm and take a photo if done in a notepad so you don't have to carry the notebook you use all the time and still have it to hand.
