Being locked outside of your house
due to losing keys is a very frustrating and upsetting experience. It is a scenario that will leave you annoyed at yourself, but also worried about how it might affect your arrangements for the day, or even where you’re going to sleep. Of course you can fortunately call a locksmith to let you in if you are fortunate to have your phone with you, but this is still an inconvenience and will take a while. It is important then that you avoid forgetting your keys in any way possible and luckily there are several steps you can take to stay on top of this.
Firstly you should try to get yourself into the habit of leaving your key ring in the same places when you get home
and when you arrive at work. In theory then the hope is that picking up your keys from this location will become an unconscious process and an automatic part of your routine. Working with your unconscious behaviour and your habits is a powerful way to be more productive and to perform better. One way to work with your unconscious mind more then is to let it decide where you leave your keys. If you are constantly coming in and dumping them on the side then make this the home for your keys. Place a key rack there, or just a mat, and this way you won’t occasionally feel you need to put them somewhere else but will instead be happy to leave them where you naturally want them to. It’s better to look a little more untidy but know with certainty where your keys are rather than knowing where they are 90% of the time (and most ‘tidy’ places are unfortunately hidden from site by their very nature).
When you take your keys with you to work you might then also want to keep these on the desk and make that the home for your keys – perhaps putting a pot there for them or a tray. Even better you might just decide to leave them in your pocket all day so that they’re already with you when you leave. This can be slightly uncomfortable however which is a good reason to carry a bag to work – and keeping your keys in there will additionally make it much harder for anyone to steel them or for them to fall out of your pocket on the train or bus.
Using a bag it’s also possible to have another safety precaution to prevent your keys going missing which is to keep a spare copy (get a locksmith to copy them for you) in your bag so that if you lose the one set, you always have a backup set ready (make sure that if you do lose the main set, that you then get a locksmith to copy another spare set or you’re back to square one). All of this will greatly help you to avoid being completely locked out without keys and will help mean you don’t have to call out the locksmith quite so regularly.
