01: John Gottman - How to Be a Master of Relationship. Welcome! My guest today is Dr. John Gottman, one of the world's leading experts on how to have an amazing relationship. He and his wife Julie currently operate The Gottman Institute in Seattle, offering numerous resources and training. Join us for a deep dive into their work! Dr. Gottman’s findings are largely based on the conclusions he has made over many years of research and observations of couples. He and his team have how to be a master (and avoid being a disaster) at relationship. Dr. Gottman discusses the following topics: “The Sound Relationship House” - what is the foundation for a relationship that lasts? Learn the importance of having high expectations in relationship, and also uncover ways in which what you'd *think* would be good for your relationship is actually counterproductive. Dr. Gottman identifies Styles of Confronting Conflict: Volatile, Validating, and Conflict-Avoiding. All of these conflict styles can lead to successful relationships. Learn what to do if you and your partner are mismatched in your conflict style. Dr. Gottman discusses “bids” we make with our partner as an attempt to connect. Are you a "yes" to your partner's bids? Are they a yes to yours? “Bids” that fail are often the beginnings of conflict. How do things change if you start paying attention and responding to your partner's bids in a positive way? Mindfulness is the key to noticing these bids and avoiding conflict. “Small Things Often” - a reminder to turn toward these bids in the small moments of life. Dr. Gottman's concept of startup is a way of thinking about what you bring to your interactions with your partner. Do you start in a place that's already positive, and thinking highly of your partner? Or do you start in a place where you are suspecting the worst of your partner? Build up your emotional bank account with small compliments (deposits). According to John, there are three phases of any relationship: Falling in Love (initial), Building Trust (middle), and Cherishing Your Partner (long-term intimacy). What phase are you in? The key to success is using strategies that are appropriate for where you are in your relationship. The key to more sex is having the freedom to say "no" without being punished for it. If refusing sex can actually have a positive payoff, then it will actually lead to a couple having a more satisfying (and frequent) sex life. Do you ever wonder how to make a good relationship GREAT? Focus on cherishing your partner. What if YOU are the only partner who wants to make changes? Can you make a difference? Absolutely. Learn how shifts in your approach can have a profound affect on your relationship. The key to success in a relationship isn't that nothing bad ever happens. It's how well you as a couple learn how to repair after those things occur. John discusses how you can learn to repair, and the positive effects that has on long-term relationships. Do you know how to decide if you’re in a bad relationship? When you're with your partner, are you at your best? Or are you veering off towards your worst? Gottman offers this simple guideline for how to know whether to stay or go. Also what to think about BEFORE you decide that you're on the wrong path. Join us for these topics and more. Dr. Gottman has practical information that can improve your relationship TODAY!

Positive psychology—with Martin Seligman. During the 1960s the field of psychology focussed on the science of how past trauma creates present symptoms, and how to reduce people’s misery. Professor Martin Seligman wanted to change that focus. He’s become known as the Father of Positive Psychology, and he’s had a profound influence worldwide. In Part 1 of our 2 programs with Martin Seligman, hear him address an exclusive audience in Australia on happiness and human flourishing.

Rank #1: 295 - Organizing - Answering Your Questions. As I tell you all the time, getting organized has 3 steps - decluttering, organizing, and increasing productivity. Today on the Podcast, I deep dive into organizing. Sometimes, people get stuck in decluttering mode and get rid of too much instead of moving forward in the cycle. Organizing is matching like with like and then ensuring everything has a home. Today, I answer your questions about organizing including: How do I get organized when I don’t have enough space to sort, group, and categorize my stuff? How do I get organized if I don’t have a traditional storage area like an attic, garage, or basement? If I am in the 100 Day Home Organization Program, and I am “falling behind” (PS - there is NO falling behind when you are getting organized!), how do I know if I should keep working in an area or move along? How do I handle items if I’m on the fence about keeping vs discarding? How do I make sure I get the most important areas of my home organized efficiently? If you have been around here for more than a few days, you know I love teaching you how to get your home and paper organized! Thank you for submitting your questions. Keep making progress! If you are ready to share your story of success with Organize 365, you can apply here to be my special podcast guest.
Rank #2: 294 - Declutter - Answering Your Questions. As I tell you all the time, getting organized has 3 steps - decluttering, organizing, and increasing productivity. Today, I deep dive into changing your mindset to get better at decluttering so you can move towards a more organized home and life. I teach you how to adapt your thinking in order to be more successful in your decluttering. I answer your decluttering questions including: How do I stop bringing things I don’t actually need (like those pesky just in case items) into my home? How do I get rid of the clutter associated with all the projects on my to do list? How do I keep book clutter under control without having to eliminate my entire TBR pile? How do I follow through with my decluttering plans and actually get stuff out of my house? What is the thing that is holding me back from getting rid of things I no longer want or need? And, at the root of all of this, how do I move from a scarcity mindset to an abundance mindset? I am here to help you get your home and paper organized in one year with functional systems that work. I help you figure out what questions to ask yourself to get some of your most difficult clutter out of your home and move towards a more organized life. I share some of my own challenges in clearing out my house. I also teach you how I was able to adapt my thinking to move me towards the organized and productive life I am living today. I look forward to helping YOU get Organized! :)Lisa

Rank #1: 001 - Why A Basket And Why Sunday?. Why A Basket And Why Sunday? I’m so happy launch my second podcast – The Sunday Basket® Podcast. If you are brand new to my site, allow me to introduce myself. I’m Lisa Woodruff, a professional organizer and productivity expert. I have another podcast called Organize 365, and it’s been going strong for almost three years. I decided to start a second podcast because, as a homeowner, you have two different and distinct things to organize – your home and your paper! I LOVE to talk about paper organization. It’s one of my favorite topics. I could talk about paper organization all day long! But I’m aware that not all of my listeners of the Organize 365 Podcast want to listen to me talk about paper organization… or at least not as much as I want to talk about it. And so, the birth of The Sunday Basket® Podcast! The Sunday Basket® Podcast is an actionable podcast. I hope to inspire you to take action in order to get your household paperwork organized. In my first podcast episode, and in this post, I’m going to explain to you what a Sunday Basket® is. Why a basket? Why Sunday? Let me explain... Where The Sunday Basket® Idea Came From Going back 15 years ago, when my kids were 2 and 3 years old, I was running a couple side businesses that equated to full-time jobs. I was a wife, mom, caretaker, homemaker, cook, laundress… sound familiar? I had a lot of paper. Plus, I had an addiction to these beautiful baskets made in Ohio called "Longaberger." You can already see where this is going! One particular evening, I decided to tackle the 12-inch pile of paper on my kitchen counter. The paper stack was disorganized and there were a lot of actions for us to take within that stack of paper – including bills to pay, adoption paperwork, invoices to send out, orders to place, etc. The first action that I took was to sort the paperwork into piles. I had 40 different actionable kinds of piles. I found I’d been paying bills late simply because I didn’t know where they were. Being disorganized can be demoralizing and you start to question yourself. It can feel like your life is out of control. This is how I felt with my 40 piles of paper. I was overwhelmed, but I knew what I needed to do. I created a plan to tackle each pile of paperwork one at a time. Well, that was 15 years ago and that’s when I consider the Sunday Basket® System to have been created. During the 15 past years of having a Sunday Basket®, I’ve gone from having just a few bits of paper in it, to having an overwhelming pile of paper. It ebbs and flows, but I always have one. In essence, it was a basket that I sorted through on a Sunday. Sunday has always been the day of the week for me when I manage to get some time to myself and I have the most energy. Your Paperwork Changes Throughout The Year When people start having a Sunday Basket®, the same thing always happens. Sometimes, their Sunday Basket® is overwhelming and full. Sometimes, it’s down to a few pieces of paper and it seems as though you don’t need a Sunday Basket® anymore. Do not be fooled! You always need to have one in my opinion. I find these things ebb and flow with the seasons. On the Organize 365 Podcast, I often talk about how I divide my year into 3, and there is a different energy associated with each 3rd of the year. Right now, it’s the beginning of 2018. I call this my "new year" – I set goals and work through my to-do list. At the beginning of May, I switch to my "summer year" – it’s more laid back. I don’t get as much online work done, but I get more done around my house. I spend a lot of time with my family and I set parenting goals. Then, from September to December, I have my "school year" – at this time I am at my most productive. My Sunday Basket® becomes very full during the transitions between these three seasons. What Is A Sunday Basket®? The Sunday Basket® is a container that holds your actionable to-dos, your kitchen counter paperwork, and you go through it every single Sunday. In the next 7 podcast episodes, I share with you exactly how you set up a Sunday Basket® and what you should be doing each time. Action Steps: Get a basket (or box or bag) Pick a day (it doesn’t have to be Sunday) My own Sunday Basket® will be released in February (very exciting… it’s going to be amazing). If you want that, please be patient. In the meantime, grab the nearest bag or box that you have and use that! In terms of sizes, try and make sure you basket is about the size of a big watermelon and about 9 inches tall so it could fit a binder or slash pockets (plastic binder inserts). Your task for today is to find a basket, box, or bag to be your Sunday Basket® and decide on a day that you can do go through it every week. Let Me Help You I am a teacher by trade, a professional organizer, an Amazon no.1 bestseller, and I have taught thousands of women how to organize their homes online and in my local city of Cincinnati. I am going to help you create a system in your household for organizing your paperwork so that it never has to be overwhelming again. Get your Complete Sunday Basket with On Demand Workshop here!
Rank #2: 003 - Fill Your Sunday Basket. Fill Your Sunday Basket® It’s time to fill your Sunday Basket®! If you’ve been listening along to my previous podcast episodes, then you have: Got your basket (or box or bag) Decided on the day of the week that you’ll go through it Plus, you may have signed up for a Sunday Basket® Workshop. Now it’s time to take some more action and fill your basket. There are four items that I want you to put into your Sunday Basket®. From now until the day that you are going to sort your basket, I want you to be filling your basket with these four items. Mail Put all of your mail into the basket. It does not need to be open and you don’t need to sort through it – just put your mail into the basket. Defer your brain power until Sunday when it comes to sorting mail. Coupons Put coupons unclipped into your Sunday Basket®. Actionable to-do's Put all actionable to-do's in your basket. For example, when someone asks you to fill out paperwork, or arrange a lunch, etc. Always ask yourself the question, “can this wait until Sunday?” If the answer is yes, put it in your Sunday Basket®. The number one thing that causes worry, stress, and exhaustion is thinking about these things. We’re clearing up your mental exhaustion so that you can clearly think about these things on Sunday. Notes to yourself I recommend you go to a store and get index cards and post-it notes and get into the habit of writing notes to yourself. When you think of something that you need or want to do, write it down on a piece of paper and put that paper into your Sunday Basket® if it can wait until Sunday. If you don’t have time to write a note, put something in your basket that will serve as a reminder. For example, if you need a new food item, put the empty box in your basket to remind you to order another. Your Sunday Basket® Must Go On Your Kitchen Counter This is why you should get something that looks pretty! My own Sunday Basket® that will be available to purchase in February is pretty and functional (to me functional is the most important, but it is pretty, too!). If your Sunday Basket® is anywhere else, like in your home office, you just won’t use it. Your Sunday Basket® is your inbox for the whole family so it needs to be prominent to you and all family members. The key thing is to defer everything that you possibly can until Sunday. This will enable you to defer your brain when it comes to thinking about these things until Sunday, reducing your worry and stress through the week. It may seem like you are going to spend far too long going through the Sunday Basket®, but I promise you that I will walk you through it, step-by-step, week-by-week. By around Week 6, you will not believe you ever got by without a Sunday Basket®! You will learn how to become ultra-productive which will improve your life in more ways than you can imagine.
