Let Organisation Save You from Frustration
Self-organization is a skill that can be learned at any age. It's one of those things that, once learned and practiced, will stick with you for the rest of your life.
Self-organisation means knowing what you need to do, when you need to do it, and how much time you'll need to do it. It is, without a doubt, one of the most useful and important skills in life and business. Getting organised can be a difficult process, but the end result is that you live a happier life in a happier space, with more time, energy, money, and brain power to devote to things you care about, need, or make you happy.
A stressful world has a negative impact on the human body as well as mind. If you want to reduce stressful situations at work or in your personal life, you must first bring order to the world around you through organisation. It can be helpful to plan your day, week, month, or year ahead of time.
Organised people spend their time more wisely on projects that are important to them, rather than wasting time on things that are not important. In business for example, well-organised people are able to determine which ideas are valuable and which should be implemented first. Without a doubt, by organising your work, the final product will be of much higher quality.
3 things to start organising today
- Your workstation. Desks have a proclivity for becoming cluttered in a short amount of time. Begin by clearing out all papers, which are one of the most common sources of desk clutter. If you don't need it anymore, recycle it or file it away in a folder. Label everything, get rid of what you don't need, and don't let the dirty dishes pile up.
- It's your personal computer. Whether you use your computer for work or personal matters, they tend to become disorganized very quickly. Downloaded files, untitled documents, and other items take up valuable storage space. Make it a habit to clear your computer of unnecessary files on a daily basis.
- The briefcase or purse that you carry around with you on a daily basis. It's not unusual to collect unnecessary items, particularly if you're always on the go and carry a lot in your bag. Get rid of any coins, scraps of paper, or candy wrappers that seem to mysteriously find their way into your bag.
