How To Chi in Some Energy With Feng Shui . . .

I have been studying Feng Shui  lately – I would like to add this service to my Home & Office Concierge Service. I suffer from depression, I am looking for a more holistic way to treat it and I read an article in a wellness center over the summer about how Feng Shui has been found to help with people suffering from depression . . . I was intrigued.

Cleaning and Organizing for people in their homes and offices for over 20 years, I do understand the concept of placement – and in other blogs I have written about how a home, office, and/or space has its own “heartbeat”. So, I am beginning to understand placement along with symbols to energize an area. I’m getting there!

If you would like to work with me in this very infantile stage of my learning the powers of Feng Shui – please reach out to me (860)961.6824 (leave me a message that you’re interested in FENG SHUI and I’ll get back to you), we can learn together – it will be very affordable to start out at this stage of the process in  developing an outline for this service.

*Side Note – I chose this video not only because Nancy is simple in her explanation of the process – but I love Olivia Newton-John . . . Who doesn’t right? Enjoy . . . . . . . .

How’s Your Week Going So Far?

You are almost there . . . to the end of your week!

Take today as one-of-those-days, you try to finalize some projects, plans, reports or anything that has a deadline attached to it . . . Reminder next week is going to be a short work week.

If possible,  “don’t leave anything on the desk” – rid your desk of all the unfinished business of the week. Actually, on Friday – clear off your desk, then clean it, and finally  dust it along with all your knick-knacks around the office. You want to be able to enjoy your time with family and friends over the Thanksgiving Holiday, while having a Peace of Mind that you took care of everything . . . no strings untied.

Some music while you’re getting all your projects done – Enjoy!

How a Time Policy Can Help Make Your Day At Work More Effective

Time Policy Chart – (the times are only examples)

7:00am- 9:00am:    (Voicemail, Emails, In-Box Correspondence) *Fill in your own tasks
9:00am – 10:30am:  (Quiet Hour – Priority Tasks) *Fill in your own tasks
10:30am- 12noon:  (Appointments, Meetings, Calls, Correspondence) *Fill in your own tasks
12noon – 12 :30pm:  (Mail, Voice mail, Emails) *Fill in your own tasks
12:30pm-2 :00pm:  (Exercise – Lunch) *Fill in your own tasks
2:00pm – 4 :00pm:  (Appointments – Priority Tasks) *Fill in your own tasks
4 :00pm- 5 :00pm:  (Meetings, Assignments, Calls) *Fill in your own tasks

A Time Policy is a guide to be used in scheduling your tasks, appointments, meetings and other activities. It involves reserving certain Time Periods of the day for specific tasks and projects. The first thing you need to find out is what is your Prime-Time? Me, I’m a “morning person” – I can get most of my task done by 10:30 am. You need to create a policy that will utilize your prime time, and not set yourself up for failure by scheduling appointments, meetings, or making important calls during the times when you’re feeling sluggish. This makes your day more effective in several ways:

    1. The Routine = it will eventually become one . . . I promise – performing the same type of tasks at the same time each day reduces the brain’s “plan-time” – That time it normally takes to get to get your shit together and orient a plan to the task, the plan is already in place by your Time Policy.
    1. Natural Breaks – it allows you to make use of  the natural breaks in a day – use: coffee, lunch, quitting time as deadlines to prevent jobs expanding beyond the allotted time space.
  1. Meetings & Appointments – which tend to take twice as long as they should – A Time Policy  ensures that you use your prime time effectively for priority tasks and assignments.

So, go ahead and set-up your time policy – the first one I made was in 1998 it was written on a piece of 2″x 3″ notepad paper, I promised myself I would write out my time policy every morning (I am a morning person) for 21 days. . . the rest is history. You will have to experiment a few times before you finalize your own Time Policy, of course you can update at anytime according to your lifestyle and work career.

Let me know how it is working for you or if you need help to set up a time policy. If you’d like to schedule a 30+ minute consultation with me to learn how to create a Time Policy to help you use your time at work more effectively – Call me: (860)961.6824 or Email me: cchomeconcierge@gmail.com

What To Do With a Business Concierge

Concierge for Small Business

Businesses sometimes need extra support for specific projects or ongoing tasks without the need for hiring an additional employee. If you don’t want to take on the expense of a full or even part-time assistant, you can still get the help you need . . . just when you need it.

CCHC can serve as a business concierge to assist with:

  • Make phone calls
  • Arrange travel or other bookings
  • Packing / unpacking
  • Provide internet research
  • Complete to-do lists
  • Business clerical tasks (filing, clean up emails and calendars, etc.)
  • . . . And so much more

It’s a cost effective solution to a growing trend of outsourcing your business tasks. Business concierges are playing an important role in today’s business environment by providing cost-saving benefits to both the business and individual. The Business Concierge can perform many of the same services as office-based employees, but without the associated costs such as payroll tax, health insurance, workers compensation, sick and other leave, training, office space (we usually bring our own setup), phone, etc.

By providing a Business Concierge, companies are not only providing a valuable tool for employee satisfaction and retention, but are alleviating the time burden that some business tasks place on the company’s resource.

Something to think about – Offer Business Concierge service to your employees, you will give your staff:

  • Reduced stress levels knowing personal tasks are being handled professionally and confidentially
  • Fewer distractions from work related tasks
  • Increased focus on their work during working hours
  • More quality time to spend on their home and family life
