Simplify Your Life By Elaine St. JamesSimplify Your Life By Elaine St. James

Simplify Your Life by Elaine St. James is composed of 85 lessons divided into seven sections. It is the perfect guide for someone who wants to gain more control over their life. People who are overwhelmed with their current hectic schedule will especially gain a huge benefit from applying the lessons provided in this program.

The first lesson of this book is titled, "Cutting Back on the Amount of Time You Work". Limiting your time at work means less money, which is not something everyone wants to think about. In life, you win some and you lose some. You must weigh the pros and cons of spending less time at work. Perhaps asking your boss if you can begin working part-time will allow you to spend more time doing other things, such as cleaning up your home, spending more time with family and friends, and organizing other areas of your life so things aren't so chaotic.

The second lesson of Simplify Your Life by Elaine St. James is titled, "Learning to Seize Time". Do you often find that you have a lot of spare time on your hands during the day. Those times when you find yourself staring into space and daydreaming are the times when you could be doing something more with your life.

The third lesson of the program is titled, "Being More Productive". Think about how your life would change if you made an effort to be more productive with the time you have. Unfortunately, thinking isn't going to make it happen. At times, planning and thinking can be even more exhausting than the actual action. If you want to simplify your life, it's best to become as productive with your time as possible.

The fourth lesson is titled, "Being More Effective With People". Everyone has people in their lives. If you're not a "people person", then you're going to run into lots of problems. Maybe you don't enjoy interacting with people and are always having bad experiences when forced to communicate with others. In order to live a happy life, you must learn to be effective with other individuals, as there is no way to dodge them (especially difficult people).

The fifth lesson of Simplify Your Life by Elaine St. James is titled, "Being More Efficient With Your Money". A known fact of life is that people usually aren't very smart when it comes to management of their personal funds. They think that just because they have a couple thousand bucks in the bank, they're perfectly okay to slack off and spend a little. This is not true. In order to build security, you must continue to store money into savings and always look for ways to save the money you currently have. It's important to store money away for financial disasters, debt, and larger, more important purchases.

The sixth lesson of this program is called, "Changing the Way You Work". The way you work has a huge effect on your life. Anything that has to do with your work life can either make or break you. People who are not happy with the way they work or their jobs in general are usually not happy with any aspect of their lives at all. Any amount of displeasure can easily spill over into all other areas of a person's life.

The seventh lesson of Simplify Your Life by Elaine St. James is titled, "Changing the Way You Think About Work". If you want a simpler life, you must change the way you think about work. Do you often find that the mere thought of work stresses you out? If so, your life is likely in shambles. Time to change the way you think so you can begin working on creating a simpler, healthier, happier life.
