How can I organize my whole life?

My house is a mess and I can't get anything done bc I get so easily distracted. And I am looking for a live in nanny job. So I'll go from just my kid to at least one more. So I need a daily schedule and a cleaning schedule and how knows what else! Oh and I know about flylady and I really don't like it. So any other advice?

  • Flylady has helped me out. I dont follow her routines exactly, but it helps to remember if I'm feeling overwhelmed to pick one thing and work on it for fifteen minutes. I can handle fifteen minutes at a time. Write everything down that needs to be done, then prioritize. Write a schedule on a white board. If you know you have a dental appointment at 9 am, you know how much time you need to get there so you can plan accordingly.
