GON Organizing for Men
Organizing for Men Men: Is Your “Honey Do” List Long? Make Life Easier for Yourself I always have a list of TO DOs for my husband….and since we own a house and have a family, the list can get pretty long. I have noticed that I never have to nag him to get to these items…and although he’s super busy, things DO get done. I’m grateful for that. I’ve secretly studied his “system” for getting things accomplished, and thought I’d share it. 1. Prioritize the list: My husband always looks at the items on the list…and prioritizes them as follows a) Important and Urgent, b) Important but Not Urgent. He always asks me too…in case one of the items is more of a priority for me than it is for him. Good communication is key. He then works on them…number 1 items first, and number 2 items next. 2. Break large projects down: Not every item on the list needs to be completed in one day or one weekend. For instance, a deck that needs staining or leaves that need raking can be broken down over as many days as it takes to finish. 3. Call in re-enforcements: While my husband is a pretty handy guy, sometimes there are items on the list that he’s just not comfortable doing and needs someone with more expertise. In that case, he calls in a professional. 4. Rewards: Guys need rewards for jobs accomplished, just like the ladies do. A golfing adventure, paint ball experience, or concert, perhaps, for the big jobs. Maybe some time out on the deck to relax or time to watch a few uninterrupted episodes of a favorite TV series is in order for smaller jobs.
