We all want to be productive, but we also want to live our lives. So how do you balance the two?
How To Get Organized
Here are six areas of your life to get organized now:
- Your finances
- Your workspace
- Your email inbox
- Your wardrobe
- Your calendar
- Your kitchen
Here are areas of your life where you can start to organize:
Email inbox. It’s so easy for emails to pile up and overwhelm us. But if you can’t find an important email, it might be time to delete it and unsubscribe from any notifications from that sender. Or create a “maybe” folder for emails that need more thought before you respond.
Paperwork drawer or box. Do you have piles of papers — bills, receipts, notes, reminders — lying around? Everything should have a home, even if it’s an envelope or file folder in a desk drawer or filing cabinet.
Family calendar. When everyone has busy schedules, it’s easy for appointments and events to get lost in the shuffle — or forgotten altogether. But if everyone knows what’s going on at all times (including weekends), there’s less chance of running late or missing something important.
Home projects list. When something needs fixing around the house — whether a leaky faucet or broken light switch — write down what needs doing and when you plan to tackle it so no job falls through the cracks.
Computer desktop/toolbar icons list. Having too many icons cluttering up your computer screen isn’t just annoying; it also
There are some parts of your life that you should organize immediately. These are the areas where you will see the most immediate benefits from organizing, and they will also help you to organize other areas of your life in the future.
The first thing that you should do is organize your finances. You need to know where your money is going, and how much of it you have left over. You can use this information to make better decisions about how much money you need to save for emergencies, or for retirement. The more organized your finances are, the easier it will be for you to manage them effectively.
Another area that you should organize immediately is your schedule. If you don’t put things on your calendar, then there’s no way for anyone else to know what they can expect from you at any given time. This is especially important if someone needs something from you and they don’t know when they’ll get it back — like a friend who needs help moving furniture or an employee who needs a day off because of a doctor’s appointment.
Finally, it’s critical that you have good organizational skills in order to be successful in any business venture or career path that requires multitasking and time management skills. People who aren’t organized tend
Your life is a mess. You have no idea where things are, you can’t find anything, and you’re late for everything.
Your car is full of junk, your kitchen cabinets are bursting at the seams, and you’ve got papers stacked everywhere.
It’s time to get organized! But where do you start?
Here are some areas that are worth organizing now:
- Declutter your home. A lot of people focus on decluttering their living room or their bedroom first because those are the rooms that others see when they visit. However, if those rooms aren’t organized, it doesn’t matter how clean they look — they won’t function well (and they may actually be unsafe). If a friend visits and sees clutter on the countertops in your kitchen or bathroom, what do you think they’re going to think of your organization skills?
- Get rid of anything that’s broken or doesn’t work anymore. There’s no sense in keeping something around just because it was expensive or you spent a lot of time thinking about buying it in the first place. If it doesn’t work properly anymore (or if there’s something wrong with it), get rid of it!
- Create systems that work
The organizing process is not something that can be done in a day. It takes time, patience, and commitment. However, there are some things you can do to get started. Here are some areas of your life that you should organize first:
Your work space. If you’re like most people, your work space is usually messy and disorganized. A cluttered desk can affect your productivity and make it difficult to focus on your tasks at hand. Organizing your work space can help you feel more productive and efficient.
Your personal belongings. Personal items such as clothing, makeup, toiletries, and jewelry tend to accumulate over time and become disorganized. You’ll have more room in your drawers if everything has its place instead of being dumped into one drawer or box that’s overflowing with stuff!
Your meals for the week. Planning out meals for the week ahead will help save money by reducing food waste and ensuring that you eat healthier meals throughout the week instead of eating fast food or going out to eat every night after work or school!
Organizing your life can be hard. You might be thinking, “But I’m not that messy!” or “I don’t have time to organize my life!” But the truth is, everyone can benefit from a little organization.
It’s true that some people are naturally more organized than others, but the good news is that anyone can learn how to become more organized — even if you’re naturally not. Here are some areas of your life that could use some extra organization:
Your finances: If you’re not careful with your money, it’ll disappear faster than you think! Being in debt is stressful and overwhelming, so it’s important that you stay on top of your finances and make sure they’re in order by paying bills on time and having enough money set aside for emergencies.
Your schedule: If you don’t know where or when things are happening in your life, it’s easy to lose track of time and get stressed out because you didn’t know whether or not you had enough time to get everything done. A simple calendar app like Google Calendar makes it easy for me to keep track of my busy schedule. I enter appointments, meetings, events and other things that need to happen into my calendar so I can see them all at once instead of having
If you’re like most people, you have lots of things going on in your life.
You may have a job, kids to take care of, a home to keep up and maybe even hobbies or interests that require your attention.
It can be hard to manage it all and stay organized.
Here are some areas of your life that could benefit from some organization:
Your time: Do you often feel like you don’t have enough time? If so, then it might be time to get organized. Write down everything that you do each day and see where the holes are in your schedule. Then make it a point to fill those holes with something productive or relaxing instead of wasting time on Facebook or watching TV.
Your paperwork: If you have piles of papers lying around everywhere in your house then it’s probably time to get them organized. Go through each pile and decide what needs to be kept and thrown away or shredded immediately. Get rid of old bills, receipts from purchases made years ago (unless they contain sensitive information) and any other documents that no longer need preservation. You can scan important documents onto your computer and store them there if necessary but don
Organize your home and office.
Set up a filing system, and use it.
Declutter your space.
Stay on top of bills and finances.
Clean out your closet and donate unnecessary items.
Make sure you have an emergency fund in place to cover necessary expenses for at least six months.
Your life is a big, messy place. There are so many things to keep track of and even more things that you want to keep track of.
If you’re anything like me, your life has become a bit of a free-for-all.
There are too many things going on at once, and as a result, we have no idea what’s going on in our lives. We don’t know where we’re supposed to be or when we need to be there. We don’t know what we need to do or when it needs to be done. And the worst part is that this is the way we’ve been living for years now!
I’m here today with four main points on how organizing your life can help improve your overall quality of life while saving you time and energy (which will make you feel less stressed).
When you’re faced with a messy home, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. But if you break down the task into small, manageable chunks, it’s much easier to tackle.
Here are five areas of your life that will benefit from some organization:
- Your closet
- Your kitchen countertops
- Your office desk
- Your car (or garage)
- Your inbox
We all need to organize our lives, but it’s hard to know where to begin.
Here are five areas where you can start:
1.Create a master list of everything in your home.
Take an afternoon, go through the house and write down everything you have. Then go through those items and decide which ones you use and which ones you don’t. Throw out the things you don’t use or need, donate them or sell them on Craigslist (if they are still in good condition).
2.Clean out your closet and drawers.
This is one of my favorite things to do when I need a quick pick-me-up, as it feels like a mini spring cleaning session!
