One thing that all successful people know how to do is how to be organized.

They know how to prioritize tasks and make efficient use of their time.

This one skill is essential for success.

But most people don’t know how to be organized. They just go through life letting life happen to them instead of having direction in their lives. They feel they are too busy to bother with organization.

A common misperception is that being organized somehow precludes spontaneous enjoyment. In fact, being organized leaves more time for spontaneity. ec83c8c25708a0c838a728105552f508

There are a ton of benefits to being organized.

  1. Less Stress
  2. More time to spend with family and friends
  3. Less impact when you get hit with a curve ball.
  4. Keep a lid on overwhelm
  5. Improved health
  6. Fewer micro-fires to put out
  7. Makes you a great example to others
  8. Money becomes less of an issue
  9. More accomplished in less time
  10. Fewer distractions to your ultimate goals

They don’t teach how to be organized in schools. Not really. But it should be an important part of a child’s education.

Parents can teach it to their kids by giving them tasks that they take responsibility for. That helps but may not go far enough.

As we become adults, we have to make decisions as to what things are important for us to do and what things should be put on a back burner until later.d83bb36b376cea040f872fc80c48bad3

Most people don’t write down anything.

There are some basic steps to organizing your day.

  1. Brainstorm about things you may want to accomplish
  2. Decide which things are most important and chuck the things you probably won’t do
  3. Schedule the tasks
  4. Complete the tasks before starting something else.
  5. Brainstorm for tomorrow.

One other step is to have a dream catcher. Have some short and long term goals so your daily tasks work towards your dreams.

Well, I recently stumbled upon a program that can train you to become and organized person, step-by-step.

There are some good programs available and each takes a different tack. 6a00d8341c016d53ef015435004037970c-320wi

This one seems to resonate with me.

The program is called Simpleology.

I made a video so you can take a look for yourself.

If this resonates with you, please leave me a comment and share so others can benefit.

    Great post Anita! If you don’t plan anything then you don’t know what are you doing. I really like that word from Harvey Mackay: “No one ever plan to fail, they simply fail to plan. Thank you for sharing this!

    This topic is HUGE – so easy to just run into the day with no plan and no organization, creating a day that is random, creating no results. Ultimately, our space is an example of what’s happening in our minds – chaos begets chaos, order begets order! Thank you for the great post!
