I may be heard repeating the following mantra over the next few weeks....Clean it up......Get it done.
If repeating the words doesn't help, I may have to resort to some more conventional ideas:
- Use a good daily organization tool daily.
- Avoid leaving tasks half done.
- Don't squander scheduled time.
- Be realistic about what can be done.
Thanks to Elliot for this list of benefits:
Have you ever been stressed out due to an unorganized schedule? I have and having a schedule helped me get stuff done faster and I have less stress.
- Have more time to relax. When you are looking for something in a pile of your belongings but there is just so much stuff you can’t find it, your blood pressure goes up and that causes health problems.
- Have a lot more time for your self. By being more efficient, like getting your stuff done faster, wasting less time looking for things, you’ll spend less time working and have more time to do what you like to do.
- Have more time for family, friends and dogs. An organized person is able to have time for family, friends and dogs. You will also have more time to help out in charities or your church if you’d like.
- Feel good about your environment. You may feel concerned when people drop by your home and see that your house is very unorganized or “messy”. Being unorganized usually results in embarrassment, but don’t be organized just for others, do it for yourself too.
- Be healthier. When you are organized you’ll have more time to take care of your self like exercise and have more time to cook better meals for yourself.
- Do better at your profession. An organized person gives a much better impression than an unorganized person.
- Have more money because you’re organized. When you’re organized you’ll always know what you have before you go and buy something.
- Achieve more. When you are unorganized, there are usually things that stop you from reaching your goals. Organized people can find ways to take out unnecessary tasks that are taking too much time and this gives them a lot more time to spend on their necessary goals on their daily plan.
