How To Be Better Organized

Office Organization 5

Over the span of this blog's existence I have been asked "how do you stay so organized" at least once per day on average. It is something that has been ingrained in me since childhood, which then became second nature. As I grew up I found more resources and better tools to help me get better in organization. 

Here's what I have learnt: 

1. Have a designated place for everything. The space you assign to different things should decided on the basis of accessibility, logic and space. You want to make sure you are able to find things quickly and without having to move anything else around. "Organized" looks different for different people and different things. Be your own judge and do it for your own needs. 

2. Put things back. Once you have assigned a space for keys, bills, gadgets, make sure to use it. Put everything in its place immediately after using them, or coming back home, don't leave them on the bed, by the night stand or in the kitchen. That defeats the purpose. 

3. Use organization boxes and trays. They are useful for organizing area which have several small and miscellaneous items. For example, medicine cabinet (see the video below), stationary, bills and receipts.   

4. Use calendars, planners and apps. I had mentioned earlier this year, how I plan my blog schedule and stick to it (see the video below). In real life as well, I use lists to keep track to daily to chores, hourly planner to make sure I get everything done and make it to my appointments on time, and google calendar to manage my social life and professional lives. The app, help me sync it with my husband so that we are not over-booking ourselves. 

5. Last but not the least - commit. Stick to the plan. The only way to ensure your organization has a long term success is to make sure you follow through. Tweak your system with your changing needs but never let it break down.

Disciple is the only reason why I am able to stay organized. Hope you found this helpful. Let me know if I am missing something, or if you have any tips for me which could help me get better organized.
