Let’s Get Organized: Practical Ways to Declutter, Organize, and Take Control

04/11/23

Presented by Gail Parsons, KGA Partner

Did you know that the average person will spend a total of 3,680 hours or 153 days searching for misplaced items? That there are 300,000 items in the average American home? That nearly 25% of us are late to school or work at least twice a week as a result of searching for lost items? Combine these statistics with the disruption of your home, work, and/or work-from-home routines over the last couple of years, and it’s not surprising you feel disorganized. This class will help you take charge of the clutter in both your personal and professional life. You will learn how to get started, get organized, and get things done.
 
Attendees will:
  • Think about what exactly is clutter and why we hang on to things
  • Examine the real-life benefits of decluttering and getting organized
  • Learn how to apply strategies for tackling existing clutter at home and at work
  • Identify basic principles of getting organized and find what works for you
  • Review practical tips to organize your space for greater productivity

Finding More Time in Your Day

08/24/23

Presented by Katherine McHugh, KGA Partner

The mindfulness approach to time management. Most time
management systems quite rightly focus on goal setting, prioritizing and interruption management. There is a lot of good in this strategy. And yet, it doesn’t allow for the certainty that everything doesn’t often go according to plan! Many of us wish we had more time to get it all done. While adding more hours to our day may not be possible, recent studies suggests mindfulness practitioners experience time as passing more slowly and feel less rushed as a result. Remarkably, they saw this effect after just a single 10-minute mediation. Come and check it out yourself!
