1How to Find Lost Objects Empty How to Find Lost Objects on Thu Sep 20, 2012 2:40 pm


You're late for work again because he could not find the car keys? Or you're packing to go on vacation, but do not know where your passport is? Your situation may not be any of these, but it has to do with finding something you lost. Use this guide to save time and frustration.

edit Steps



Check your surroundings and places that was recently. Look for the obvious points. Look into the rooms where the item can be. Do not look carefully, looking at the piles of clothes and inside the pockets of his pants. Instead, just look around to see if the item is in sight.


Look for the lost object where it should be or where it can be found. If you lost your credit card, then you should obviously check your wallet. If keys are missing, check if it is not hanging on the front door or the car to make sure you did not forget. Sometimes things are exactly where you left them.



Check for yourself. It
seems somewhat silly, but you can forget that glasses are hanging
around your neck, over your head or even in front of your eyes. Check these obvious points, once again, even if you are sure you already did.

* Do not forget to check your pockets, even if you think you already did. You emptied the? You found deep inside? Also check the pockets of any jacket or coat that has used recently. If you used a backpack, purse or bag, make sure there until the background.



Look for the lost object in detail. Now that you know that the object is not in sight, look more carefully around your home and car. If you have a messy house, this may require some time. Be sure to check each corner. Most people have the same daily routine, which will reduce the search. Eliminate unlikely places (like keys in the oven) to save time. You
probably thought of several possible places, gave a superficial checked
first, and when he reached the end of your list, was getting more
worried and started looking more carefully. Go back and look more carefully at the places most likely.



Create a list of rooms. Then look in every room. Mark each room until you find the object. If you still can not find him, he is not home.



Make cleaning your house. Try
a rigorous housekeeping of your room, house, apartment, dorm, car,
backpack, purse or any area where you may have probably lost your item.
Items rarely disappear from areas tidy. Make a cleaning can reveal the whereabouts of his lost item. If not, well, at least you clean everything!



Think of the last time and place you used the lost object. Would you took to work or to a friend's house? You were recently in a restaurant or on the bus? When you used the last time the object? Remember your steps can take you to the object. These things usually happen when you're on autopilot and distracted. Maybe someone was cleaning and has changed his place of item. Where they could have placed?



Pretend that you are using the lost item. Think you need to put it somewhere, or you just brought home. Go to the first places that come into your head.



Remember the people with whom you spoke and places where you've been lately. Now that you've reduced the places where he might be, call your friends, your work, bus station, etc.. They can be with the lost object.



Ask others to help you search for the object. Relying on the help of others often increases your chances of finding the lost item. They can be family members, friends, the bus driver or even strangers (who often engage enough in finding a misplaced item!). You can even put an ad in the local newspaper or on poles. It may be worth the lost object is valuable.



Make a systematic search. Depending on your environment, try to get a system to avoid not look good for a particular area. For
example, if you think you may have lost his lucky coin on a lawn, you
may want to create a search pattern for yourself or volunteers to avoid
forgetting any area.



Consider that the item may have been stolen. Do
not panic, but consider how much the item may be worth (as a phone,
iPod, computer, money or any electronic item) to a stranger and someone
may want to keep him. If the item is relatively worthless, of course, is unlikely to be an object of theft. However, you never know, people sometimes steal things for reasons apparently meaningless.



Give it time. Sometimes an item will surface in due course. Your sister can find it while passing the vacuum cleaner somewhere weird that you never thought, for example. Unless
it's something that can cause serious problems (such as credit cards,
cell phones, checkbooks, identity) sometimes learn to wait worthwhile.



Make sure the item is lost again if he is found or replaced. If
the item is found or exchanged for another, buy a keychain better
organize your home and have a designated place to store their valuables
until the next time you need them.



His last hope: stop looking. His mind will be in a state of calm and then when you try to search again, it will be easier to find.



If all hope is lost after trying all the steps, go out and buy another object instead. You will have less stress and frustration. If the item is irreplaceable, follow the above step again and gain confidence.

* Try not to make a mess, but you will have more difficulty finding what you missed. Instead, be systematic and take the opportunity to fix things.

* Do not blindly search for the item. The first reaction is to look for the missing item everywhere imaginable, leading to frustration. Take a moment to calm down and think logically. Be methodical: divide the area into smaller zones and look at one at a time. If you go back, always look in the area as defined above.

* In at least one of the searches, look above eye level. Often, we are looking down as we seek, but the fact is that we can have the item placed on a higher shelf "just a moment".

* Check everything repeatedly. Even if you searched for the keys in his room three times, check again. It is not rare to find something in place that you thought you already had researched thoroughly.

* Do not forget your car! For many people, the last place they were before returning home was the car. For
small objects (such as keys and credit cards), do not forget to look
between and under the seats of your car to make sure they did not fall
out of your pocket.

* Consider the characteristics of the item. The nature of certain items makes them easier or more difficult to locate. Cell phones, for example, can often be recovered simply by calling the phone number - assuming the phone is on and loaded. Also, consider this fact when you use the item. For example, if you usually use something in the winter, try checking the pockets of winter jackets.

* If all else fails, look no further. Forget the object. This gives incredible existing computer in your brain a chance to work, which sometimes leads to instant recovery.

* Write your name on the objects with permanent markers and hide valuables. That way, if they are stolen, you can easily prove that they are yours.

* If you can not find the item quickly, stop looking and start cleaning the house, washing the car or arrange the office. It changes your focus and level of frustration. When you find the item (or even if you can not find), you're on your way to a more organized and less prone to losing things.

* Know your habits. Some people put things neatly around them, some of us play all around. If
you're playing those things, go to the place more comfortable access
for more suspects and pretend you're playing the object. This
gives a radius (based on how you could shoot a particular object - as
you throw your keys differently from a laptop or breakable object) of
more or less where the object was - including the path he could have
done jumping out of bed or banging on a sofa cushion.

* Next time, try to remember where you first looked at him, when he realized he was lost. Keep it here and avoid losing the same thing again. Normally, the first place that comes to mind is always the same.

* If the object is small and you think he may be on the floor, put his head down, so that the floor be at eye level. This makes small objects are more easily seen.

Try to keep a copy of the most common things to lose (keys wallet,
purse, cell phone and remote control), so if you do not have time to
look for them, you can still survive. Make sure that they are different from the originals and keep them in a separate location. You do not want to lose both thinking you had another.

* Create good habits is a great way to end the loss of short term memory. Practice the habit of putting your keys and wallet / purse in the same place. If
you catch yourself thinking "I'll put it here for a moment," stop, take
a small pat yourself on the object and put in the proper place - that
should be a convenient place, a container or an area very close to the
first place you thought about leaving the object.

* Put your keys on a nail or hook for keys (available in decorating stores) next door. You always have to hand the keys; advise firefighters put it where you can easily grab and go. You can also have a pot or a bookshelf where to put all these important things (phone, wallet, keys, change) so get home.

* Place your jewelry in a jewelry box so they are easy to find and to give a clean look to your room.

* When something, say it. When you speak, your brain works to remember what you're doing. If you put your wallet somewhere, tell yourself where you put it.

* If you are extremely worried, use one of these new tags and locators. Just do not lose the locator.

* If all else fails, simply pay to replace the item. Once you have the new, the lost item suddenly appears in a place you thought you had looked a thousand times.

If the object is small enough to fit into, say, a pocket, try checking
your dirty pants that have not been washed or who are still somewhere
in the laundry.

Check the car: between the rear seats, driver's seat and the passenger
seat, under the seats and bags in the doors, the glove box, center
console, the Coasters and elsewhere in the car. The object may have fallen from his pocket as he sat up for a set of keys, a cell phone, MP3, etc..

* Make sure you've checked in and under the sofa, chair and pillows if you think you could be there.

* Do not panic if all else fails. Get a good night's sleep and try the next day.

* Maintain a positive attitude believing in the success of your search.

* If the item can be replaced easily, act so as to avoid inconvenience. Verify credit cards, for example, can be replaced by your bank - usually, it's free. If a card has not been found after going through the above steps, please contact to have the card off and have a new one sent. Many
sites do not ask for documents with photo to use such cards, and if it
has been stolen, you can be harmed financially if not promptly report
the loss.
