IDEAS FOR THOUGHTFUL PARENTS
To Inspire Creativity, Deepen Connections, & Have More Fun

Parenting comes with a lot of responsibility and stress but it can come with even more fun and hilarity if you let it. Nina Coslov and Tara Keppler, both Organic Structures, offer great advice for all types because above all else they stress the importance of finding your own way.

It's easy for an Organic Structure • NFJ to find meaning in their daily life, and Tracy Zalit Davidson's musings on the beautiful distraction that is life do just that. Ahh.

Tame Your Coat Closet

Spring has sprung, allelujah!! I was reading Martha Stewart Living's March issue last week when I came across an article about how to clean out your front hall closet for spring — Declutter the Coat Closet. There were some useful ideas for all personality types — hooks and baskets on doors — and then ideas certain personality types should never attempt — color tagged hangers for each family member's coats. I think the latter would last maybe 30 minutes in an Organic or Smart Freedom household. Although for that matter, it really would only work for an insanely uptight, organized, unemployed Classic.

For Clueless Classics

You are forewarned that about half of you will think today's tip is a fantastic idea and the other half will eye roll. Remember the movie Clueless with Alicia Silverstone? If yes, then dig even deeper into your cranial cavities and try to remember that scene where she uses a computer that picks out her clothes. Well, it exists and almost for free if you've got 3 hours and a smartphone.

Ransacked by Rouge New York

I try to live by the advice I dole out to clients and frequently purge things — clothes, shoes, paper, doodads and whatnots. Keeps clutter at bay and me happy. Makeup is the only thing that's impervious to these purges. What thwarts me is incompetence, "Maybe I could wear that bright blue eye shadow if I knew how to apply it," but also guilt over buying blue eye shadow and never using it and then worry that I might desperately miss the blue shadow if I toss it. So when new, uber-hip make-up salon, Rouge New York, came up with The Ransack service — you bring your make-up bag to them, they tell you what to toss, what to keep, what to add and how to accomplish a look with the remainder — I was sold.

Death, Taxes & Procrastination

You know the saying, "The only two things in life that are certain are death & taxes." I think it's time to edit this saying because procrastination is also a certainty. ALL personality types do it. Everybody. Some types — Funs (SP), Organic Freedoms (ENFP & INFP), and Smart Freedoms (ENTP & INTP) — are just better at it than others. Today's tip is why different personality types procrastinate plus a helpful tip to make your next tax season just a little easier courtesy of our favorite bookkeeper, Marlene Cantor, at Executive Bookkeeping Services who spoke at The NY Network breakfast meeting a few weeks ago.
