I think the folks at Staples were on to something when they coined the phrase that dominates their current advertising.
In fact what if we had an “easy” button for our work and our homes. It can be as simple as asking yourself throughout the day how you could make a task or chore easier or more fun.
I recently had a meeting with my “Administrative Team,” Pina & Arlene (mom!). Each time we meet we go through every administrative task and discuss if it’s something we need to continue doing.
Following up when a customer’s credit card is declined…uh yes!
Assembling welcome packets in plastic bags full of handouts and catalogs…no, we switched to a simple one pager with all the pertinent information on . It’s less time consuming and more “green” as well.
Many changes have evolved as a result of these meetings and we continue to become more efficient, plus we’re always looking for a way to mix in fun.
This is a great time of year to apply the same approach managing things at home. Nothing like a New Year to provide a fresh start and bring more ease and enjoyment in your life.
Now that was easy….
