Don't Rush!

Rushing into important decisions can be a total recipe for unending disaster. Rushing in general is bad, it makes you forget, not think things through and can lead to upset. When you rush you only usually think about why you are rushing, and not at all about the wider implications. Being able to take a step back, look at the bigger picture and plan things out makes the world of difference and can stop you doing some crazy things. There are certain decisions which rushing makes worse than others, so be sure never to rush these.

Getting Married

Rushing into getting married can foreshadow untold problems. Just look at the huge amount of celebrities who rush into marriage only to get divorced a few months or even weeks later. Rushing into marriage firstly means an expensive wedding to pay for, but it could mean an even more expensive separation. You’ll have to pay for a Divorce Mediator to make sure you get a good deal and ensure it all goes well and fairly. But this and the expense could all be avoided by simply taking longer before rushing into marriage. It isn’t the same as it used to be years ago, marriage is no longer needed to certify a relationship or a family, so make sure you take your time and make sure it is right before rushing into it.

Buying A Car

Rushing into buying a car can be problematic, especially if it is a used car. You need to make sure the car is okay mechanically and that all the papers are above board and correct. If you fail to do so you could end up shelling out in the long run. You should check if the vehicle is stolen first, and then always take the car on a test drive to ensure it is running smoothly. You may not be a car expert, but by doing this you’ll know if something is wrong.

Again,investing is something that should never be rushed. You may feel you have a legitimate tip that you need to exploit, but failing to properly research anything yourself can lead to a huge disappointment if you lose your capital. In investment everything should be researched and checked. There should be an informed reason behind every purchase you make, and this applies to everything, whether it's the stock market or fine arts.

Purchasing A Home

Again, when purchasing a home you need to ensure that you are taking the relevant checks. Don’t be bullied into parting with your cash early by threats of multiple offers. You need to check it out yourself, and then get a builder’s survey done to check for any serious structural issues which could become a serious problem down the line that cost a fortune to fix. You should also strive to ensure you research the area properly and any council plans, because they could be planning to build something that drastically reduces the value of the house or area. All of this is food for thought and should encourage you to research properly before parting with any cash.

Need Some Help Planning Your Days? Here Are A Few Useful Tips

In life, preparation is key. We all have things to do every day, and how we get through them depends, in no small part, on how prepared we are. When you have a job interview, you're more likely to get the job if you show up well-groomed, answer questions coherently and are positive. That's just one example of how being prepared helps.

Of course, being prepared and organized is easier for some than it is for others. I know only too well that there are areas I struggle with. But if you're going to get through a day then you - we - need to look at how to approach it for the best results. From morning through to night, having a plan of action helps.

Get Up, Get Out And Get Things Done

Writing things down helps you store them in your memory

The night before you know you need to do something, it's good to make a to-do list. It's ideal to do it then, particularly if you're not a morning person (this applies to a lot of us). The day that's just gone will be fresh in your mind, and things you need to buy or arrange will suggest themselves more easily. Also, it gives your mind the chance to bed that information in.

Carry A Kit Of Essentials

Whether you carry a handbag or a briefcase, you should always make sure it has some vital items inside. Your phone or iPad, of course, as well as any medication you need to take. A purse or wallet is essential, as are your keys.

Make sure your bag is packed before you start your day

Some other items that aren't so obvious include a bottle of water. How else will you swallow any tablets? Also, a power bank as recommended by iThingum. You might not be near a socket when your iPad or phone needs charged, after all.

Group Your Tasks Together

We all know that some tasks are higher-priority than others. This doesn't mean, though, that the lower-priority ones should be left for later. If you have to attend a doctor's appointment (vital), and the surgery is next to a post office, then take the chance to buy stamps. Even if you don't need them right now, it's better than waiting until you do. It will also save you crisscrossing the town and using up more time if you plan tasks out geographically like this.

Keep A Week Planner

If you plan your week, you can make amendments where necessary

If you plan your day in advance, you will get more done and have a more organized life. But we all know that sometimes, events overtake us, and we can't get everything done. By keeping a week planner, you can bump some of the non-essentials to a day later in the week. So you can say to yourself "there's no time today to buy milk, but I'll be in town on Wednesday anyway. I'll pick it up after my meeting.

Of course, as we know, sometimes all of the above is more easily said than done. All we can do is aim to plan things out better. And hopefully, before too long, it will become a habit.
