NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS…

How To Avoid Disappointment with your New Year’s Goals and set yourself up for success!

by Claire McFee



One of the main reasons that so many people are unable to stick to their New Year's Resolutions every year, is because they try to achieve too much, too soon and because they do not break their goals down. Something that may help you to achieve your New Years Goals is putting them off until after January all together. Considering what a busy time of year it is, delaying your action plan can help ensure better results. This way, you can relax and enjoy some time with family and friends without feeling guilty about it. This will also help prevent you from feeling like you're behind before you have even started. Once you put pen to paper and get your mind in gear to take action on your goals then here are some tips on how to help make your resolutions a reality, not just a thought in you head. 

                        
1. Get clear on your Goals

Pick a maximum of five areas you would like to work on in your life.  Be it at home/ in the garden/ at work/ to do with the children/ your partner etc, and write them down on an Action Sheet for the year.

2. Clearly write your goals down of course!

Get a piece of paper for each statement with its own heading and break it down into several steps of what you need to do to make it happen. Prioritise which items you need to address first – with the good old 1,2,3 or A, B, C Remember you need to focus on one job at a time, or you risk losing focus and putting it in the 'too hard' basket.


3. Find a good ‘home’ for your Goal Lists/Plans

Put these pieces of paper into the appropriate section of your Organizer/Diary. If you do not have one, it's a must to invest in something that can house such lists. Without one you will end up with scraps of paper all over the place, and this will stress you out and prevent you from reaching your goals.  



4. Read and take action on your Goal Plan

Refer to your Goals list/s regularly, (daily/weekly/monthly - what ever suits you best), ticking off what you do as you go. The more ticks on the page the better!

5. Re-do your Goal Action sheet regularly

As you tick off items on your Goals Sheet the page may start to fill up and become a bit of a mess. When this happens simply transfer the incomplete jobs onto the other side of the page or onto a fresh page until all the jobs have been marked off.

6. Set Realistic Goal Timelines



Be realistic about the timelines you set for your Goals - (to be written at the top of each page also). Estimate how long you think it will take you to complete and then double it! This will be more accurate and the good thing is if you do happen to get the job/so done before your timeline is up, you will feel even better about tackling the next job, rather than beat yourself up for not getting it done quickly enough.



This New Year (delaying) Goals setting strategy works a treat for me and countless others so why not cut yourself some slack and give it a try too?  Good luck and Happy New Year’s!

Hormone problems? Could be Estrogen Dominance making your tierd and overwhelmed


New Organize Your Health and Wellbeing Naturally eBook:- Chapter Snap Shot

Having recovered from depression using various little known natural modalities, I have so much to share with you in my new 33,000+ word eBook chock a block full of info you've never heard of that could help you too.

I cover heaps of important topics such as 'Estrogen Dominance' - a hormone imbalnce problem many women have (and some men)  without even realizing it. I know I hadn't heard of such a thing. Even if you aren't depressed/have depression, what I share may still be very helpful to you if you are constantly tired or overwhelmed.

Estrogen Dominance - Hormones Awry?

Our hormones are very delicate and they can cause all sorts of health issues if left unattended. Many of us are low in progesterone and therefore estrogen dominant. This can cause all manner of health problems, physical and psychological.
Sadly many of us (me included) have had a blood test to ascertain if our hormone levels are in the normal range and are told we are fine, only to find out that in fact they are not normal and are a major reason for the symptoms you may be experiencing -such as lethargy and mood swings and depression. The reason many people get a false reading is that a blood test does not adequately give you the results you are looking for. A saliva test is far more accurate. Alternatively a visit to a naturopath with a Vega testing machine or a Kinesiologist - trained to conduct very accurate muscle testing to diagnose this and many other issues. This one discovery,  proper diagnosis and the subsequent simple, natural remedy changed my life enormously.
Among other things, you can learn more about some of the main causes of estrogen dominance in our modern society and what we can do about it in my new eBook for only $14 Introductory Price
Sign up to our newsletter at our website to get your Free chapter of my new eBook -Organize Your health and Wellbeing naturally to read more about the topics covered that could turn your life around as they did mine.
You can also check out my You Tube videos on the topic of Depression / Hormone Imblanace / Estrogen Domiance / Mind Body Medicine  and everything to do with organization here - with more than 60 videos and over 30,000 views.

Easily Overwhelmed? Highly Sensititve Person Perhaps?


Here is another chapter snap shop for my new eBook Organize Your Health and Wellbeing Naturally about having a highly sensitive nervous system putting you in the Category of a 'Highly Sensitive Person' (H.S.P for short). I was and didn't know it for years!

"Organize Your Health & Wellbeing Naturally is a must read for anyone struggling with their current state of being. Claire McFee writes in an honest, uplifting, intelligent way and shares her research and journey about thriving and becoming your best possible self. Avenues for change include focusing on issues like gratitude, goal setting, relationships, naturopathy and organizing. She takes a wonderfully human approach to living which will surely inspire you." Linda Samuel's, CPO-CD - Professional Organizer & Author of The Other Side of Organized

Looking at the personality type known as the 'Highly Sensitive Person' (H.S.P) is also another interesting topic that will explain a lot to a vast number of you. If you feel overwhelmed by the pace of life; If you can't help taking other people's comments to heart; if you analyse things over and over; if you are tired a lot of the time by the (seemingly normal) amount of stimulation in your life; if your senses seem over active -i.e.; loud noises affect your more than the average person/strong odours really affect you etc - then you may well be a H.S.P like me!

When I read a fabulous book on the topic the penny really dropped. Everything about me and my life started to make sense.  Apparently 15-20% of the population is categorized as a H.S.P. and many of the rest of the population have many H.S.P traits they can relate to of course as well. Understanding more about this trait and how we don't need to be 'fixed' we just need to learn how to modify our environment slightly. Simply seeing that there are many great qualities as an H.S.P is enough to stop beating yourself up for something you may have been told was a negative personality trait since you were young, adversely affecting your self image. As one customer emailed me after reading the eBook said:-
'Your eBook is so good - well done. I discovered I'm a HSP!!!! I didn't even know what it was till I read your book and it was like a light bulb coming on....' Jo, New Zealand

To get your Free Chapter Now and find out more about this and all of the other topics in the eBook go to our website and sign up to our Newsletter..
eBook aailable for only $14! With over 33,000 words - chock full of great advice and 40 recommended resources for you to learn even more.  www.organizeyourlife.com.au

Thanks for the great endorsement from fellow Author Elke Emerald!


Wow just got this unsolicited review from the inspirational Elke Emerald - Author, University Lecturer, Life Coach to name a few. Thanks Elke!



" At a recent Hay House writer’s workshop, in a room of 600 people, I was blessed to ‘happen’ to sit next to Claire McFee of Organize Your Life.



Claire is a talented and energetic mother, wife and business woman. With the arrival of her first child, she perceived the need for more organization in her life. And so was conceived Organise Your Life.



If you are a busy, multifaceted, multifunctioning modern person (find me one who isn’t) the Organize Your Life system may well be a real support for you. Claire has thought of everything: Organizers include Self, Home, Money and Family. Each of these Organizers creates a space for you to consider and record everything from your bank account details and tax records, your holiday plans and sports commitments, to your dream diary and personal goals! Each is a digital document that you can write in and leave in electronic format, or print out for a folder or to stick on the fridge. Claire’s organizers include lots of tips for getting your life together, and there is also a newsletter you can sign up to for more great ideas.



The Organizers will take you a little effort to get set up as you’ll be entering a lot of detail to get started. But once it’s done, it’s done! And like anything – the beauty is in the using – once you are using the Organizers you’ll have all your information and plans and obligations, responsibilities, ideas, dreams, goals … all together and readily accessible. So rather than search through 20 different books and folders and documents and bits of paper with important dates and notes, you’ll have it all together. And rather than losing sight of your treasured goals, ideas and projects, you’ll have a reminder right here. There is even a Gratitude Journal, Affirmations page and a page to note down compliments you have been given!

I encourage you to take a close look at Claire’s Organizers."

Organize Your Health and Wellbeing Naturally - 'Outsmart your Cancer'

Organize Your Health and Wellbeing
with 'Outsmart Your Cancer'

I just had to share details of this amazing book with you I recently found. Although specifically to do with fighting Cancer naturally there is a lot of very important information related to health and wellness generally that we could ALL benefit from.

For example, I used to be Estrogen Dominant, which in large part caused symptoms including depression and was undiagnosed for many years - even with a blood test at the doctors -(turns out a saliva test is much more accurate or muscle testing as I used with a trained therapist.) This condition, how it is caused and how you can rectify it are outlined in the book and is a must-read for all women whether you are pre-menopausal, peri-menopausal or post-menopausal. Many men are also Estrogen Dominant due to preventable lifestyle factors, which are also addressed.

As many of you would already know it's almost impossible to get on top of your life when you feel overwhelmed  let alone depressed - and good organization can feel like a pipe dream. But taking an organized approach to your health and wellbeing can positively effect all other aspects of your life and arming yourself with knowledge is a very powerful way to do this. Bottom line is we need to be proactive in our health and this book is the perfect place to start empowering ourselves with better knowledge.

I have shared this with my family and friends and am sure you will want to too. Read the free Chapter in Amazon to get a feel of the quality of the book. You won't be disappointed. Best  money I've ever spent and that's saying something!

Please share this invaluable information with your loved ones. They will forever be grateful.

Organize Your Petrol Purchases to {Save on Petrol!}

Organize Your Petrol Buying to {Save on Petrol)
I never thought I'd be writing an article on Organizing anything to do with petrol but hey it's part of our lives and that's what I aim to help you with - all sort of things to do with your LIFE - not just how to de-clutter and organize your house. :)

A friend just emailed me this and I thought it was really fascinating. Can't hurt to take the advise into account to save money at the bowser. I am going to apply these Petrol Saving tips that's for sure. More money in your pocket is always better than someone else's.

PETROL TIPS - info!! (MUST READ)
 
I don't know what you guys are paying for Petrol.... but
here in Melbourne we are paying up to $1.30 to $1.50 per litre.

 My line of work is in petroleum for about 31 years now, so here are some tricks to get more of your money's worth for every Litre: Here at the Shell Pipeline where I work in Melbourne, we deliver about 4 million litres in a 24-hour period thru the pipeline..

One day is diesel the next day is jet fuel, and Petrol, regular and premium grades. We have 34-storage tanks here with a total capacity of 16,800,000 Litres. 

Only buy or fill up your car or truck in the early morning when the ground temperature is still cold.
Remember that all service stations have their storage tanks buried below ground.

The colder the ground the more dense the Petrol, when it gets warmer Petrol expands, sobuying in the afternoon, or in the evening....your litre is not exactly a litre.In the petroleum business, the specific gravity and the temperature of the Petrol, diesel and jet fuel, ethanol and other petroleum products plays an important role. A 1-degree rise in temperature is a big deal for this business. But the service stations do not have temperature compensation at the pumps.  

When you're filling up do not squeeze the trigger of the nozzle
to a fast mode.If you look you will see that the trigger has three (3) stages: low, middle, and high. You should be pumping on low mode, thereby minimizing the vapors that are created while you are pumping.

All hoses at the pump have a vapor return. If you are pumping on the
fast rate, some of the liquid that goes to your tank becomes vapor. Those vapors are being sucked up and back into the underground storage tank so you're getting less worth for your money.

One of the most important tips is to fill up when your Petrol
tank is HALF FULL. The reason for this is the more Petrol you have in your tank the less air occupying its empty space. Petrololine evaporates faster than you can imagine. Petrol storage tanks have an internal floating roof.This roof serves as zero clearance between the Petrol and the atmosphere, so it minimizes the evaporation.

Unlike service stations, here where I work, every truck that we load is temperature compensated so that every litre is actually the exact amount. 

Another reminder, if there is a Petrol truck pumping into
the storage tanks when you stop to buy Petrol, DO NOT fill up; as most likely the Petrol is being stirred up as the Petrol is being delivered, and you might pick up some of the dirt that normally settles on the bottom. 

Please pass on to your family and friends. :)

Ever wondered about Traditional Aboriginal Culture and 'Women's Business?"

A brilliant book that I just had to share with you.....
"Under the quandong tree"
by Minmia

Two gorgeous friends of mine - both gifted healers recommended this book to me recently. I trust their opinion explicitly so I promptly bought the book.

I don't know about you but I have often thought about aboriginal culture and what a detrimental effect we as white settlers have had on their connection to earth, themselves sand each other. I was not taught much at school - certainly not anything that showed due respect for their ways or how the Aboriginal way of life and their respect for mother nature could actually improve our lives too. Well 'Under the Quandong Tree' filled in so many gaps in my knowledge and then some. So much so, I think it should be part of every school curriculum so that Australians know more about this countries amazing FULL history. It is a topic we should all take responsibility for to educate ourselves and our children about.  Do you know the difference between 'womens' business', 'men's business' and 'our business'. If not perhaps it's time you did?

Minmia is a very talented author who draws you in to the ways of her people. Thank you Minmia for sharing your knowledge with us so that we may understand your culture better and ultimately have more compassion for one another and respect for the earth we inhabit.

Here is my review:
“Under the Quandong Tree explains so very much. My respect for Traditional Aboriginal Culture has deepened immensely having read this powerful book. I have been experiencing the ‘awakening’ discussed in the book and understand more about where it has come from and how to develop it further to help our Mother Earth – Nungeena –tya as well as others who have been spiritually asleep for so long. Faith and respect for life will triumph. Thank you for writing this wonderfully enlightening book Minmia. It is an honour that you have shared your sacred knowledge with others .” Claire McFee Author Organize Your Life
