Woman hard at work interrupted by the phoneIt's great having routines in place and our own systems for being organized, both at home and at work.  But how do you deal with interruptions and things that throw you off course?  An unexpected phone call, a breakdown (your car, your washing machine, you!)  Well, you identify it as a situation where you have to make a decision, and as much as possible you do that decision making in advance, in other words, you allow for interruptions and decide how you will deal with them at different times.

Some interruptions, like your car breaking down, just have to be accepted.  There's no point stressing, you just get on the phone if you can and let whoever needs to know what's happened. 

Others though, shouldn't be allowed to throw you off track.  If you have important work or study you're doing, and there's a phone call, someone wants to ask for your help, or something comes up that can be done at another time, it's OK to say that you'll speak to them later or you'll do it later, because you're busy at the moment.  You're allowed to make yourself unavailable!

Interruptions from children are another matter though.  Older kids are capable of understanding that you have certain times when it's your time and you're 'off duty'.  It's easier for them to accept this if you allocate times when you are fully available to them.  Don't bother trying to do anything important when they come home from school, schedule it for another time.  With little ones, as any of you who have them know, you're always on duty.  Arrange some childcare or babysitting or regular help if you can.  For the rest of the time it can be very hard to do anything other than light housework.  Don't expect too much of yourself while you're looking after young children.  It really is an important job all on its own.  If when they're sleeping is the only time you get a break, avoid using all that time for work or study.  You really need some time to yourself to just relax.

If you are trying to work on a project whilst looking after children, and you're finding it hard because you only have very short bursts of time when they're quietly playing, and you're keeping an eye on them, keep a big pad of paper and a pen handy, and do your work on paper first.  It's hard to think clearly with all the nappies and feeding and tripping over toys, so just break everything into smaller and smaller tasks and write them down, leaving instructions for yourself that you can follow without having to think.

Sometimes we interrupt ourselves too, with opening mail, checking email, browsing the internet.  If you have set times of the day when you do these things, it helps avoid using them as excuses to avoid what you decided to do at that time.

Plan your days in advance, and stick to what you've planned as much as possible.  If you can end each day feeling like you achieved something, and knowing you spent time on each of the areas you decided you would, you'll enjoy how that feels, and it will inspire you to do it again tomorrow.

"I consider myself very fortunate having chosen Yvette for coaching.  It has turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. I started from a place where I was stuck in procrastination and everything seemed so overwhelming that I didn't really know where to start.  I love the freedom and empowerment I now feel.  Yvette's methods are personalised and very effective.  I have looked forward to every coaching sesssion."

"Yvette is a great coach who inspires you to overcome the obstacles that she finds in working with you.  She is highly motivated and has worked hard to increase her knowledge in many areas that in turn help her clients.  Yvette draws on her own real life experience adn studies to help those of us who have to juggle many responsibilities and mangage the conflicts in thinking that come from that.  I am looking forward to working with Yvette again in the near future"

Liz Jarvis, CSI Business Solutions, 
NSW, Australia

"Through my coaching experience with Yvette I was able to shift my awareness onto my value system as opposed to staring at my circumstances each day and feeling pulled in a hole.  It's powerful because I want meaning, I want to live up to my values and what's right and good for me!  So, I truly learned the value of letting go and receiving the abundance of knowledge for every situation that gives life, love and meaning to who I am and what I can do, with this fearless self awareness."

New York, USA

"Yvette.  Many thanks for a wonderful experience... Our sessions were productive, really interesting adn I so looked forward to them each week with anticipation of what I can learn about myself and my behaviours.  Every session seemed to flow right on topic of what was present in my relaity at the time and your effortless guiding of my strategies never ceased to amaze me.  I highly recommend you as a life coach and thank you again for the experience."

M Shears,

"I really questioned my future career ambitions and thanks to Yvette I changed direction from something I felt I had to do, to something I know I will love to do.  I was stuck on this topic for quite some time and Yvette really helped me shed light on this.  I changed the MBA I signed up for and feel excited about my careeer and all the opportunities in the future."
