Whether we sell products, services, or programs, we all need regular doses of inspiration, motivation, and tips to keep us trekking as we work to move efficiency forward. If you’ve taken one of my efficiency sales workshops, you’ve probably heard me talk about Tony Robbins’ best-selling book, Awaken the Giant Within. You may have heard me refer to graduates of the Efficiency Sales Professional™ Certificate Boot Camp as “Sales Ninjas.” Like ninjas, efficiency sales professionals are fearless, quick on their feet, and highly tuned into their prospect’s every move. The adorable couple you see here is my Mom and her husband–they are anxiously hoping that their mission call arrives in the mail TODAY. Some of the kids (and their families) live nearby and are planning to get together for the letter-opening. I know many of you have been through this process too–sending off a missionary does not necessarily mean sending a child. Lately, the focus of missionary work chatter has been all about the age changes, the massive influx of sister missionaries, and post-high school timing issues.

February 9, 2015 by Angela 22 Comments Amidst the morning grumbles and groans, does it ever sound like you are living with a family of bears? It’s important to start any day with a nutritious breakfast full of protein and grains, like Kellogg’s Frosted Mini Wheats, Special K or Raisin Bran cereal and milk. During my first year of teaching, I had to be out for quite a lot of professional-development days during the school year. One day when I was out, my students used my duct tape to tape one another to chairs and uploaded a video of it to Facebook. If you have found yourself suffering from major DABOBLYSWAB, here are nine ways to prepare for a substitute for your tough class: 1. I had to be absent on a day that fell on providing review on a skill that we covered in class.

With winter quickly approaching, it’s important to prepare for severe weather as the temperatures drop. Before the winter snow approaches, check your tires for proper tread to ensure they’re safe to drive on slippery roads. To properly insulate the home and prevent heat loss that can occur during the winter months, check for leaks near doors or windows on the property.
Rain gutters can easily become clogged or damaged if debris is not removed before the winter season. When preparing for the next winter, there are certain steps to take with your property and vehicle to promote safety, and ensure you stay comfortable. Today’s blog on productivity further continues this exercise of reflecting and planning for the upcoming year with a focus on more personal goals.
But the truth is, there’s also a big shift in the number of senior missionaries answering the call to serve!
In the application process you need to know how much you can provide monthly for your expenses.

My son has never been a morning person, and getting him up and off to school was challenging most mornings. Doing things like making a check list, setting out tomorrow’s outfits, packing lunches, and readying school backpacks will help you to get out the door fast in the morning, and with a lot less stress. Create a “must achieve” list for the morning to help yourself stop stressing about those tasks at night, leading to a more restful night’s sleep.


Plan out what to have for breakfast, and nothing is easier than setting out a bowl and spoon for a quick, nutritious and tasty bowl of cereal in the morning. If you’re travelling or on-the-go, making sure to pack a nutritious snack (like a baggie of cereal) in your bag to help you avoid hitting the mid-morning lull and picking something unhealthy.
A good nights sleep and a healthy breakfast will help prepare you for not only a big day ahead, but every day. I was not an effective classroom manager my first year, and I taught several classes of students with behavioral disorders. Getting your child ready for a new school year well in advance is a great way to ease back to school worry and anxiety.
Start establishing a bedtime routine so it is second nature when back to school week arrives. Organize toiletries such as toothbrushes and hair brushes so morning routines can go smoothly. Start establishing a wake up routine, waking children up even an hour earlier than they are use to. Make a list of easy and nutritious breakfast ideas so children can be well fueled in the mornings.
Establish a homework station in the house for children to use each night and to keep their materials organized at. Organize a command center or file for important papers to be kept and filed in for easy access. Be sure you are on all social media sites for the school and on all email lists for any notifications or newsletters that go out.
Make sure all health forms have been submitted to your family doctor so you have them on time for the first day of school. Buy and organize your lunch supplies such as the lunch box, baggies, plastic containers and water bottles. Find a local playground or play spot perfect for blowing off steam after those first few days of school. Take a picture of your child with their biggest smile so you can have it to compare to their end of the year photo. She loves vintage finds, handmade goodness, the frugal life, and the long road to publication.

For many people, this can mean having difficulty traveling or even change exterior house upkeep. Snow tires come with optimized grip with softer rubber and deeper treads that can dig into the snow for more control. This can lead to flooding and other damage on the property when snows pack in and it melts during the Spring, making it important to clean them out before rain or snow arrive. By taking the necessary precautions, it will make for an enjoyable season that doesn’t require having to perform repairs after the weather becomes severe.
In fact, my husband’s parents served a senior mission several years ago, accepting a call to leave sunny Southern California for Duluth, Minnesota. I thought it might be helpful to share some simple senior missionary mission prep tips, so I asked my mom to write up a list! It also gives confidence that couples are all unique and can serve according to their abilities and strengths. Check out the Senior Missionary website to see the broad array of service opportunities available.
I’m quite a bear myself during the early hours of the day, so having a set morning plan and routine has always helped my family to prepare for a big day.
Knowing that you are already prepared for the big day ahead, will also help you get a good night’s sleep. The combination of these factors means that during much of my first year, I was plagued by DABOBLYSWAB, which stands for that feeling of Diarrhea-ish Awfulness Brought On By Leaving Your Students With a Sub. In fact, I was out for a day this past week and received a near-perfect report from the sub, which almost made me cry, then made me skeptical for just a second, but then almost made me cry again.
If you and your students hate one another, don't be at all surprised that when you leave your classroom, the substitute is terrorized.


If you are ready to get your child into back to school mode, take a look below at these 25 ways to prepare children for a new school year. Your local library should have plenty of recommendations of child friendly back to school books. You can find her at The Homespun Hydrangea, the blog for frugalistas seeking simplicity through a handmade and vintage lifestyle. Although there are many disadvantages that come with the wind, rain, and snow, there are ways to prepare for winter weather and have an easier time coping with the changes outdoors. Keeping the gas tank full each month will also prevent the fuel line from freezing as the colder weather descends. You can also protect your home by having an inspector check the strength of the roof to ensure it will be able to hold several pounds of snow during the season. She enjoys hiking, biking, running and blogging about many different subjects including family, home and fitness. I love that the first thing my sister texted after finding out the letter had not arrived yesterday was that it was probably misplaced in a neighbors mailbox! My non-member friends are also excited about finding out where we will go and what we will do.
Think about it this way: Are you more likely to do a favor for a boss that you hate or one you deeply respect? I adore your pink sheet idea - that's definitely something I could see using in my own classroom in the future. These tips will help ease your child back into the transition of school and all of the responsibilities that come with it!
Label items so children can easily find them and get their own clothing items out each morning. If you wish, you can even share with the teacher this list of freebies and discounts for teachers. Show children these numbers so they are familiar with them and see who else they can count on for support. Some teachers have balked when I say I tell students in advance that I will be out, but I’ve found that if everyone knows the plan before I leave (instead of just me), I get a much better sub report. If you know you’re going to be out, hand out assignments to your students the day before you leave so that they can see the assignment, practice (without writing on it) and ask questions ahead of time. This eliminates the "I didn't know how to do the assignment, so instead I decided to jump from desk to desk like a savage" excuse. Make sure you get the assignments back from the students after they preview them so your sub will have them for the next day. I created it the day after the duct tape incident and have never had a miserable sub experience since. A friend of mine subbed for me last year and said my classes were constantly asking what score they were getting.
If more than one class has a perfect Pink Sheet Score, I complain loudly about having to buy so many Oreos, which is, for some reason, even more of an incentive for them because my students are surprisingly schadenfreude-y little humans. If stickers and Oreos are personally or morally offensive to you, feel free to replace them with your own incentives, even if it’s a simple thank-you for good behavior. Class Y does assignment Y which is in location Y and should be turned in at Y time,” and so on.
Special student instructions (students who can be relied on to run errands, students who may need special assistance, etc.). A day when you're out is not the time to be introducing their senior thesis research project or doing a science experiment involving corrosive acids. I’ve discovered that allowing students the option of using personal technology but requiring them to stay seated is good for crowd control after they have completed their work. When students know that they could be immediately accountable for their behavior, they tend to straighten up pretty quickly.
