5 Tips to Become a More Organized Person

In July 14, 2016

One of the best decisions you can make (both for your personal and professional lives) is to become more organized. Nearly anyone who has made a deliberate effort to do this will tell you that they feel both happier and more productive after just a few small changes. Here are 5 no-nonsense tips that can help you get organized!

Clean and rearrange your workspace. Though it might sound silly, it is impossible to organize nearly any aspect of our lives if we are surrounded by disorder. Taking a small chunk of your day to make sure that your workspace is organized can make a world of difference for your mood and your productivity.
Use a calendar or a planner. This can be done on paper or with the help of your computer or your smartphone–however you feel most comfortable. The important thing is simply to plan your days, write down your tasks, and eliminate that horrible feeling that you might be forgetting something.
If it takes 5 minutes or less, do it now! Letting small tasks build up can be stressful, distracting, and horribly unproductive. Instead, make a simple rule for yourself: if a task can be achieved in 5 minutes or less, do it the moment that it arises.
One thing at a time. Multitasking is unproductive and stressful. Make space for yourself to work on one task at a time and you will notice the difference.
Put it away after you use it. A long workday can leave even the most organized person feeling scatterbrained. Thus it becomes tempting to leave books, office supplies, papers, etc. lying on your desk or taking up space where they don’t belong. Putting items away when you are done with them will help you keep your space organized and your mind focused on the task at hand.
