Simple. Organized. Life-Changing.
Forte Organizers helps individuals and families stay organized at home, as well as teaching business people organization skills at work.
In The News...
Three articles were published in Lori’s Dayton Daily News column which may help when trying to reduce the amount of clutter in your home or office as well as reduce holiday stress.
Tackle Your To Do's...
As I observe people while working with them, I notice they spend a lot of time managing their to-do lists and less time doing the tasks on the list. They constantly answer to reminders, putting tasks off for another day only to be distracted by an electronic  reminder for a different task. It’s a constant battle of alarms and rearranging tasks. Is keeping your to-do list electronically the most efficient way you could be doing it or should you consider going back to pen and paper?
With pen and paper your to-do items stay on the list until completed, eliminating the need for alarms and moving items to different days.
Corner Wrap Up...
This year when your children get new games for the holidays, reinforce each corner of the game box with shipping tape before they start playing the game. This will help keep the box in better shape throughout the year and keep those small pieces safely inside.
Happy Holidays to My Past Clients...
I am thankful to have such wonderful clients over the years, who often touch my heart in more ways than one. It has been a privilege to work with each and every one of you.
