I dedicated an entire website to organisation. Why?
Because when I don’t take the time to follow a routine and write down the tasks I need to accomplish, everything quickly becomes overwhelming and my life falls apart.
Stress and mess and depress take over.
Everything is hard. I can’t focus on work, can’t keep the house clean, and can’t relax either. It might seem like being organised is too hard and takes too long – but you’re going to waste a lot more time and energy if you’re not.
Being organised is essential
Organising your life is an essential skill that everyone should learn and practice.
Being organised enables us to stay on track with tasks and goals, allowing us to better manage our time and resources. When we are organised, we are able to focus on what is important and prioritise our activities accordingly.
We can easily identify which tasks need to be completed first and follow through with them without becoming overwhelmed or sidetracked. Planning out the steps necessary for each activity allows us to break down large tasks into manageable chunks, making them easier to tackle one step at a time. When we plan well, there is less chance of forgetting something important or getting stuck in a rut due to lack of progress.
Being organised also helps improve mental clarity and reduce stress levels as we don’t have to worry about forgetting something important or wasting time looking for misplaced items. Moreover, it leads to better decision making since we can easily look back at our past successes and failures when evaluating the choices before us.
Organisation is the key to success in any endeavour. Whether it’s managing tasks and projects, running a household, working, studying, fitness, keeping the house clean or planning for the future, being organised is the only way to go.
Tips for how to be more organised:
Organising tasks and projects can take many forms; some people prefer using physical methods such as filing cabinets or desk organisers while others rely on digital systems like document management software. However you choose to organise your work, there are a few general principles that you should keep in mind:
1. Set realistic goals: Start with the end result in mind and set goals that you plan to achieve. This will help keep your organising efforts focused and ensure that you don’t become overwhelmed.
2. Break down large projects into smaller chunks: Organising large projects into small pieces makes them much easier to tackle. This also allows for time between each part of the project so that you can review what has been done so far to make sure it is progressing as expected.
3. Prioritise tasks: Not all tasks are created equal; make sure you prioritize tasks by importance so that the more important ones get completed first.
4. Create a timeline: Creating a timeline helps ensure that deadlines are met and prevents putting off important tasks until they become overwhelming.
Being organised isn’t just about having everything together in an orderly fashion; it provides many benefits including increased productivity, improved focus, greater efficiency and most importantly, overall satisfaction. A structured mindset can help decrease stress levels while making sure all tasks get accomplished in an efficient manner.
Being organised is the difference between taking ownership of your life and letting life just happen to you.
