5 Ways To Get Organized
by Cassie Bondie
Have you always struggled to stay organized? These five organizational tips will help get your life in order as soon as possible.
1. Purchase a Planner
The first step to getting organized is purchasing a planner. This is where you’ll keep your daily to-do list, write down important deadlines, and plan your day-to-day life. By writing everything in your planner and sticking to its contents, you’ll be able to stay organized without a second thought. You should purchase a new planner each year – though some prefer to get a fresh start every six months.
2. Organize Your Workspace
Sometimes it can be difficult to stay focused when your works pace is busy. Consider taking a day or two to organize your work space. This includes vacuuming, dusting, and reducing clutter. You should also consider redecorating on a regular basis. Changes in your surroundings can be highly motivating, especially when made regularly.
3. Set Reasonable Goals
If your goals are far too difficult to actually meet, you’ll find yourself slipping back into disorganization. Set reasonable goals for yourself and stick to them.
4. Keep a Calendar
Even though you’ll have a planner, it’s also important to keep a calendar. This is where you’ll write down events, meetings, and work hours rather than daily tasks. It can be easy to overbook yourself if you don’t keep your calendar updated.
5. Talk Through It
Still having trouble with organization? Talk through your problems with a loved one. Sometimes, just talking about a problem can help you sort through possible solutions and come up with a method that works.
It’s all about diligence and staying on track. Choose the organizational methods that best fit your needs and stick with them. You’ll notice significant changes in no time!
