Your Most Organized Year Ever

Your Most Organized Year Ever

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.
