Each year as we start the new year, we think of ways to make a change and improve our lives. Did you know that organizing is one of the top three goals each year? Throughout the month of January, I will be offering 31 tips to help you have Your Most Organized Year Ever. Implement just one of these tips, tools, techniques or tweaks this year.
A little structure helps us all in our work day.
Having a pattern to our work week can help us prioritize and focus.
What’s a “little” structure?
Structure or routines are creating a consistent pattern for specific tasks. This pattern helps you be sure these tasks are completed regularly more easily. Once your routines are in place these become habits.
When you add a “little structure”, such as doing a few things routinely at the same time regularly, it adds to your productivity. Deciding a baby step to your structure, such as going to bed at the same time nightly, it adds to your overall effectiveness.
Not sure what would make a good routine for you? Try out one of these routines:
- Check email only 3 times a day
- Have a one hour power period once a day at your peak energy time.
- Complete your expense account on the last Friday of the month.
Start with a baby step of routine to make this Your Most Organized Year Ever.
