When it comes to moving effectively and efficiently, more thought should be placed on the ease of the actual moving rather than on time consumption and physical labor. Below are outlined three of the most insightful techniques to make the process of moving a very easy one indeed.
Step One-Plan, Prepare and Strategize.
With this step, you simply enjoy a warm evening with just a writing pad, some ink pens (or pencils if you prefer), and you write out the following days plans. Be sure to include all the help you have and make sure to delegate the most strenuous tasks to those who are more physically able to handle them. Preparation is key to easy moving, so knowing who will be there, where things will go, and how the process will work will make the following day’s events so much easier. To strategize in advance makes no room for error, miscalculations, etc. You will have imagined every possible mishap beforehand and made the necessary adjustments on paper to deal with them.
Step Two-Incite, Invigorate, and Explicate.
This step involves the ability to whip the team into a moving frenzy by the most effective means at your disposal. If your team consists of teenagers, have the pizza and sodas ready along with the music of the times. Make sure to allow them the liberty to use headphones if need be. With this step, you will focus on invigorating your moving team with a sense of unity, pride, and togetherness in the grandest way possible. Next will be the explicating. Sometimes this may consist of creating a sense of unity amongst the movers or even making the destination an ethereal land of gold to be obtained by all involved. This can be accomplished by mentioning the after party once the moved is completed, or by letting everyone know that prizes will be awarded upon completion of the move. Be sure that this step does not involve the actual payout for labor. This is a bonus that will invigorate even the laziest of movers. Extravagance rules the day.
Step Three-Execution, Observation, and Relaxation.
With this step comes action, the execution. This is easily done with the most effective items all movers need…cardboard boxes
. To move without cardboard boxes is to eat without food, they are mandatory. The execution must be done with all sorts of boxes that have been labeled during step one with careful planning and strategizing. Once the team starts the move, you must then observe that all your ideas are being carried out and that no stone is left unturned.
This would mean making sure that all the boxes go where they are supposed to and the preordained items are in the preordained packages. Sometimes things will get misplaced if the observation is not carried out. Sometimes observation makes workers uncomfortable, so this step must be carried out in stealth or with the sense of teamwork but having a careful eye at the same time. The last part of this step is the most enjoyable part, the relaxation. Whatever plan you have to show the workers that the work performed was well appreciated, that is up to you. But do it in the spirit of rest and relaxation.
These are three steps to make moving a pleasant experience.
