1.  Write it down

Do a brain dump and write everything down that’s on your mind. Writing reduces worry and organizes your thoughts.

2.  Prioritize or Die

You need to prioritize or you will have a clean garage but get fired from your job.

Decide what is important and do that first. Otherwise you may never get to what really matters.

3.  Make things automatic 

Things that are habitual don’t tax your willpower. The more activities you make into habits, the less overwhelmed they will make you feel.

Build routines and habits so that you’re not deciding, you’re just doing.

The secret to getting more done is to make things automatic. Decisions exhaust you

4.  Work like an athlete

We were not designed to go 24/7. We were designed to sprint, rest, sprint — just like an athlete.

You sleep in cycles and your mind naturally works in cycles. Alternate hard work with breaks to be at your best.

5.  Switch to Single-tasking

Forget multitasking. That’s what causes the feelings of burnout and it’s not effective.

Discover what your peak hours are and protect them.

Focus on the most important thing of the day. No interruptions, email or calls.

6.  Live in OHIO

Not the state. It’s an acronym: Only Handle It Once.

That email you’ve opened sixty times today, unsure of what to do with it?

Make a decision. Reply, trash it or set a time to properly deal with it.

Revisiting unimportant things over and over is a huge time and energy thief.

7.  Have leisure goals

Most of us think about “leisure” as doing nothing. But that’s a dangerous way to view it.

Research shows we’re happier when we accomplish things (playing tennis with a friend vs. flipping TV channels.)

And given our habits, we’re prone to start checking email and firing up the usual 17 things we multitask on.

So set a goal for leisure. When you have a fun thing to accomplish, you can singletask on relaxing.

Mother’s Day is right around the corner. But don’t feel like you have to break the bank to show mom how much she means to you. After all, the savvy woman who taught you how to make good choices of how to spend your money wouldn’t want that, right?

1. Breakfast in bed. Always a classic, making mom breakfast in bed is sure to be a hit. Add a hand-picked flower in a tiny vase, and you’re good to go.

Dad, if your kids are too little to cook by themselves, drag yourself out of bed early on Mother’s Day to help. While moms everywhere appreciate the effort behind a 100 percent kid-made breakfast in bed, they’d prefer an edible meal to burnt toast and cereal with orange juice.

2. Handprint crafts. What mom doesn’t love to have the memory of her little ones’ tiny handprints? Handprints – whether on paper, in plaster or on a flower pot – make great gifts for moms and grandmas of little ones. Just search Pinterest, and you’ll come up with dozens of handprint crafts. Turn those adorable hands into flowers, butterflies and more. You can even find cute poems to go along with these crafts.

3. Do chores. Whether the mom in your life is a stay-at-home mom, a working mom or an empty-nester grandma, she is busy. So this Mother’s Day weekend, spend Saturday doing chores without being asked so she can enjoy her day, Sunday in that clean house.

Clean the house – including the toilet. Wash the dishes. Do the laundry, and put it away. Just taking these chores off mom’s hands the day before can make Mother’s Day more relaxing for her.

4. Write something. If you have a way with words, consider writing mom a poem, or putting one of your favorite childhood memories to paper. If not, make a list of the things you love about your mom, or jot a note in a handmade card. When it comes to little kids, ask them what they love most about mom, and record their answers.

These are the kinds of things moms treasure, and you can bet she’ll keep this gift of words and read them again and again over the years.

5. Give her time. Some moms – especially in-the-trenches moms of babies to high schoolers – just need a little time to themselves. Ask her about this before Mother’s Day. Maybe she prefers to spend Saturday alone and Mother’s Day with family. Or maybe she’s the opposite.

Either way, try to carve out time for Mom to have some space for herself. Encourage her to go out to lunch with a friend, read a book in bed, SLEEP, or just enjoy having the house to herself while dad and the kids vacate the premises.

6. Make a coupon book. Coupon books are always a hit around Mother’s Day, and the Web abounds with cute printable books for kids of all ages to give to their moms. Or you could make your own coupons.

Need some ideas for coupons you could give your mom or wife? Here are a few:

  • One Movie Night
  • Two Loads of Laundry
  • Help with Gardening
  • Get Out of Bedtime Free
  • Mom’s Choice Chore
  • One Bear Hug
  • One Car Wash
  • One Breakfast in Bed
  • One Night Off Cooking

7. Teach her something. Does your mom want to learn something you’re good at? Maybe something about using her computer, taking good photos with a smartphone or even a craft you know how to do?

Give her a Mother’s Day coupon for a few learning sessions with you. It’s a great way to spend some time together, build memories and teach Mom something new.

8. Trash-to-treasure crafts. The Internet is full of great ideas for crafts made of things you probably have around your house. Help the kids make mom a Shrinky Dink necklace from a plastic container, a desk organizer from cereal boxes or other creative trash-to-treasure crafts.

When you’re choosing a craft, just try to pick something useful or something that won’t take up a lot of space. That way mom can display this work of art without feeling crushed by clutter.

9. Digitized photos. If you were born in the 90s or earlier, chances are that much of your childhood – and your mom’s pre-motherhood life – is captured in printed photos. 

There are photo digitizing services you can use if you’re not completely strapped for cash. But if you have more time than money, you can do it yourself it with a basic home scanner.

10. Time together. Whatever you decide to give your mom or wife this year, be sure time together is on your list. On or around Mother’s Day, plan a family outing with mom. Go to the park, or go on a bike ride if the weather’s nice.  If your a teenager staying home all day is much appreciated for your Mom who wants to be with you.

The time you spend together will be worth more to her than any expensive gift. 

I hope you all enjoy your day with the Moms in your life.
