Organization Is The Key To Success
Studies show there is a link between clutter and your decreased mental, emotional and physical health. Now that we know it effects our health and the problem lets uncover how to solve this.
A lack of organization can cause you to be constantly late, miss deadlines, and in turn cause you extra stress. Many may turn to outlets like yoga, meditation or other therapies to help cope with the stress, but these methods won’t actually address your root cause of stress: disorganization.
Here are some tips for organizing for success.
Set goals that are realistic. When severe horders are ready to start tackling their big mess, therapists encourage them to simply get rid of one thing. The first big baby step. When you set manageable goals you will get more confident and happy once you start hitting those goals and set more.
Technology can help tremendously. Learn how you can automate some of your tasks. There are so many tools now available and even for free that can make your life much simpler.
3. You Know Yourself Best
Some people love to write everything down in their planner journals, others would start and then quickly quit as it is far to rigid. For those who may love a detailed plan make sure you leave time for unexpected delays or tasks that may come up.
If you are a more of a go with the flow type of person, instead of breaking down your tasks by time or in a calendar you can break them down with tools like Trello or Microsoft Teams. You can then tackle items by date still however have a little more freedom based on your mood, energy etc as you tackle tasks.
Getting to where you want to go is never going to happen without a plan. A goal is a place you want to get to, a plan is a detailed means of getting there. Happy organizing!
