When it comes to gender equity at home, many households are depressingly unequal. It’s time to raise the bar of household equity and we will do this in two ways: First, by making visible, the invisible work of emotional labor. And then, by anticipating the Emotional Labor Lifecycle. And finally, by embracing the art and practice of radical delegation. When we commit to these ideals men will recognize their full potential in the household, and women will realize their full potential in the paid workplace.
Regina Lark is the lead author with Judith Kolberg of Emotional Labor: Why a Woman’s Work is Never Done and What to do About It, Here is Regina’s TedX talk
Perfect Is Pointless: 16 Organization Rules You Can Follow
Counterintuitive as it sounds, many ADHD organization challenges stem from perfectionism — the common, learned belief that things must be done impeccably. It’s an impossible standard that leaves many of us with cluttered homes, out-of-control finances, and exhausting schedules. These 16 organization rules can help change the tide.
Judith Kolberg, one of my first guests, was a crucial contribution to my latest book, Emotional Labor. Judith is an industry thought-leader whose skills in writing, editing, and listening were essential in bringing this book to life. Her sense of humor added an enjoyable element to our collaboration, and her insights and expertise enriched the content of the book.
In our podcast conversation, Judith and I discussed various topics related to emotional labor, including executive function skills, sequencing, and self-care. Her depth of experience and innovative organizing methods were also highlighted. As the founder of FileHeads Professional Organizers, Judith has made significant contributions to the field of professional organizing, launching an entire industry dedicated to addressing the needs of individuals challenged by chronic disorganization. Her writing has been instrumental in educating people on the topic, with four commercially successful books to her name.

Since my ADHD diagnosis at age 12, I’ve spent a good deal of my time trying countless methods of combating the forgetfulness and scattered-mindedness that ADHD has hurled into my life. I’ve missed important deadlines that can inconvenience my colleagues, forgotten good ideas and important appointments, lost focus during conversations I’m genuinely interested in, and been sidetracked from things I should really be focusing on.
It is so clear to most of us that certain items go together that we almost automatically categorize all the time: clothing goes in a bedroom or closet, salad bowls and forks in the kitchen, and nails with the hammer somewhere near other hardware. But here’s the thing. Some people seem not to have gotten the category-gene. In their home clothing could be anywhere, you might find a fork in the bathroom, a box of nails can turn up in the kitchen; books, toys, flashlights, stationary supplies – they are all a hodge-podge. What’s up? Some of us categorize differently than others. In this webinar you’ll hear interesting and funny stories of hodge-podgers. You’ll gain insight into the 4 reasons this occurs. And then you’ll learn the innovative ways even the worst hodge-podger can have an organized home.

I was recently asked to write an article for Independent magazine, the journal of the Independent Book Publishers Association [See Article] which prompted me to reflect on my career. I recommend it highly, this reflecting on one’s career. For me, it reminded me of my entrepreneurial roots. And it’s a good thing, too because I have not been clever enough in business to retire without ever having to work again. So having an entrepreneurial outlook is coming in handy. There are plenty of things I can still do to earn and learn.
Revising Yourself - Revenue Trickles, Streams, and Floods by Judith Kolberg
Emotional labor is the unnoticed, unwaged, unwritten work women do in the home and in the paid workforce. It includes everything from assuring socks match to coping with a virus, schooling, a job and family life all under one roof. Largely invisible, the mental load of emotional labor weighs heavily on the shoulders of women. Dr. Regina Lark, the author of Emotional Labor: Why A Woman’s Work is Never Done and What to Do About It is a feminist historian with years of professional organizing experience in homes, offices and storage spaces. This book examines women’s relationship to emotional labor from early American history to the COVID-19 era. Emotional labor is generally thought to be women’s work, whether at home or in the office, but it is actually not gender specific. It’s just, well, work!

What if you suddenly died or became incapacitated? Would your Executor, Power of Attorney, family or other authorized representatives know about the existence of your “invisible” online and web-based accounts, the ones with no statements or paper trail? Do the right people know how to log-in into your vital accounts? While your family is planning your funeral and grieving your loss, criminals could be hijacking your Facebook account. Do you know how to protect your ‘information afterlife’, the digital information that goes on without you?
