    I'm so glad that you say that you used to be unorganized but it gives me hope that I can be organized. The biggest challenge I have is ACTUALLY doing what you said. How did you conquer that part, actually doing it?

    What? I move my refrigerator on a hourly basis! Forget daily! Say I'm I'm upstairs in my bedroom watching Netflix, I will bring my fridge up the stairs so I can eat while watching. I'm not sure why she doesn't understand this but in my mind that is really the best organizational method. Move everything you own depending on where you are located on a day to day basis. That way you you always have your recourses where you are. All joking aside nice video :)

    Hmmm I see comments on the pace of your speaking. I feel your speed is just nice! I can listen while doing my stuff, or just watch it before bed, and it's not going to take up a lot of time. Learning more in a shorter time? I like that!

  • Erica Copper

    All of these are so helpful! And unfortunately I think I need to implement all of them... loved the video but I think it was mostly nice to listen to as background noise because I was getting ready. Would have been nice if you edited in some clips of you actually doing some of those tasks.

    • Erica Copper

      Gillian Perkins thanks. I totally understand. Thanks for taking time to respond. Please don't take it as criticism because I really thoroughly enjoyed the video and became an instant subscriber because of it. Keep up the good work.

    I like her pace keeps me interested, I do rewind if I think I miss something (like when reading/writing comments during the video) . If anything you can adjust the playback speed. Sometimes I speed up some YTbers

  • Awabia Belle

    I loved when you talked about setting a timer for things like laundry. That's a subtle way to put a little pressure on yourself to get it done. And like you said, it will help you determine if it's worth continuing to do.

    1. Take care of mail immediately.2. Carry a notebook or note app to catch ideas instantly.3. Set week and month goals.4. Use timers to speed up your pace and stay focused..5. Have a home for your belongings and get them there.6. Keep surfaces clear to have your space beautiful.7. Tidy up every night. Classics, but there's no other way to enjoy life.

      You can use timers for domestic tasks too. It's just a great way to stay focused and with unpleasant tasks you know that it will only be for the time you've allotted to it.

    How freaking slow do people need her to speak?!?! She's fine, it's YOU! YOU can rewind as much as needed.
    To the vlogger, maybe instead of slowing down, add subtitles. Also, all great tips!

      Wouldn't mind if she used a lower voice. I turned my volume way down.

    I find that preparing your next day before going to bed helps a lot. Preparing the clothes you're going to wear, thinking of what you're going to eat and preparing as much as possible the day before makes the morning way easier to go through.

      Margaret Gust There are plenty of listeners who like her fast speed. A lot of people get easily tired when the same points are repeated in a slow tone because a lot of tips will be the same as what others do. She's not inconsiderate. She's talking in her own speed. She can't please everyone. If you read the comments section, you would have seen that a lot of people like the fast speed. Also there are a tons of you tubers who talk slower so you have tons of choices to choose. Don't call her inconsiderate just because you can't keep up.

    • Juji luz

      Margaret Gust
      Margaret, I didn't call anyone slow. Read my comment again. I said how one hears her could be a variety of issues including being foreign to the language or even mentally impaired. This was not a suggestion that the commenter was slow. I also suggested to the blogger to add subtitles to help people out a little who couldn't hear what she said.
      The only snarky one here is you. I wasn't intending to belittle or be aggressive. It is a fact though that we can play back as needed whereas the woman speaking only has so much time to say what she needs to say.
      Have a coffee, relax, smile and retract your claws a bit. No one here is looking for an argument. We are all here for the same reasons.

    • Margaret Gust
      Margaret Gust Year ago

      Juji luz- when you are listening to someone face to face, your hearing I much more acute, but recorded voices need to be slower. That is just a fact. Your snarky reply about Isabel kassan being slow reveals that you are rude and conceited. This vlogger does speak too fast - apparently "getting it done" is all that matters to her, and does not show consideration for her listeners.

    • Juji luz
      Juji luz 2 years ago +2

      I think her speaking is perfectly fine. If you think SHE speaks fast, never visit NY or any Northern stage. Perhaps it's the listener who has whatever issue as in being foreign, slow to understand, etc.

    These are all good tips. I didn't realize other people set timers for cleaning. I love doing that because cleaning is definitely something I dread. The mail thing is a huge one for me. There's a check I received from a car dealership from last year that I still haven't cashed because I don't deal with my mail immediately!

    Take a breath! Slow down it sounds like you are reading a fast autocue. The listener has to not only take in what you are saying but may also have to follow an unfamiliar accent. Utube is international after all. Good points though.
