When you think of your home,
do you think...
Unless you live in Oz, creating your own home sweet home is going to need some guidance... If you feel like you have no clarity, no focus, and an endless home project to-do list... you've come to the right place.
What if I told you there is a simple, manageable, and actionable system to help you take any and all of your home projects and turn them into stress-free done, done, and done projects?
Well... there is!!
If you’re anything like me, your house is your most prized possession. It’s a place where you spend time with your family, host your favorite friends and loved ones, and your go to spot to snuggle up in your favorite should-have-gotten-rid-of-this-years-ago t-shirt. Your home is a place where you and your family find comfort when life gets to be a little too much to handle.
Similar to the forts you made as a kid, this is a place of your own creation... except it has much more space and you can keep it up all year round. Taking pride in the comfort-ability and stress-free value my home can offer my family is a key motivator for me. If I come home and see endless projects, half-decorated walls, and things out of place because they currently have no place, I feel stressed. If I’m stressed, my family feels stressed.
What this amounts to is stress on stress on stress #mynextrapsonglyric... ain’t no body got time for stressing out all the time, so... that’s where I come in.
Let me give you a little background on how My Homier Home began...
When we moved into our new house in 2015, it was double the size of our old one with a lot of potential. The only way I could make sense of all the ideas I had running around in my head was to write them down. I started making to-do/idea lists in a spreadsheet by room in hopes to find some clarity and focus to the seemingly never ending list. I felt pretty confident because anyone who knows me would agree that organizing is my best skill and list-making is my number one hobby.
Fast forward a year...
Other than having completed mission: de-redify our home (more rooms were painted bright red or pinkish white than weren't... yikes!), we had barely made a dent in the list. I felt defeated and frustrated. The problem I was having was all the lists in the world weren’t helping me bring clarity or focus to what I actually wanted to feel as I entered the various rooms in my home.
I would go to the store in search of one thing only to get completely side-tracked on something else. I would either come home with nothing or come home with everything that caught my eye in hopes something would work... just to go back to return almost all of it wondering what I was thinking. I knew I wanted my home to feel cohesive, warm, cozy, and stress-free, but it was completely stressing me out trying to get there.
After what seemed like endless crying fits and feelings of extreme overwhelm, I found an amazing book that changed how I look at my lists. It was one of those things that you have no idea how you stumbled upon, but you're sure it was written specifically for you.
Getting Things Done by David Allen is the most enlightening read I've read in a long time.
Basically, Allen discusses how to bring clarity and meaningful processes to tackling all the things you need to get done at home and at work. He helps you work through creating a system to deal with paper, projects, and to-do lists. Even though GTD® is not necessarily home-specific, I realized while reading it that my method of list-making for my home projects was grossly inefficient. How could I possibly look at a list of 100 things and know what needed to be done first, what I could afford, or what actionable steps it would take to achieve those dreams?
That’s when I stumbled upon my second favorite tool in my belt... an app called Trello.
Trello is my jam!! It allows you to create different boards for different projects with different lists that have cards with a front and a back where you can add checklists, descriptions, due dates, and so much more!!
[Insert totally excited, deep breath]
With the science of GTD® and the simple format of Trello, the framework for creating My Homier Home was born. By combining these two systems and making them home-project-focused, I started to actually make strides in achieving my goals for my home. Not only did I gain freedom from my lists, but my lists were actually working for me. I felt less stressed because I knew exactly what I needed to accomplish each day and I started to actually see positive change in the feeling of my home.
Because I'm the sharing kind, My Homier Home has a ton of great things to offer including access to creating your own organized, whole-home project list, e-courses to help you with specific projects, free resources, and even one-on-one consulting.
