I know it’s another time management topic but unless you’re organised, you’ll get naff all done.
Finding time to organise is often a complaint used by people. In today’s society, activity is almost non-stop and it IS difficult to see where you can add yet another task to your schedule. Although if you’re honest, how much of that time is wasted on social media. However, there are ways, hidden pockets of time, to accomplish things. Below I cover a few of these often overlooked free periods.
*FOCUS ON A LITTLE BIT AT A TIME
Instead of thinking about the enormous job at the forefront, split that big job up into controllable tasks. For instance, if you want to organise the boxes in your attic, you may think about going through one box per day, until it’s all complete. Or do a quick mind map on the tasks needed to complete the objective.
*ASK SOMEONE TO BUG YOU
I must admit, that this wouldn’t work for me and often has the opposite effect. But it does work for some so I.ve included it.
Tell a close friend, relative or co-worker, what you plan to organize, and by what date. Then, merely request that person to bug you a small number of days before to see if you’ve completed it so far. A little outside inspiration is frequently an enormous help.
Make something you love to do, dependant on the achievement of today’s chore. If you promise yourself that you will not watch your favourite television program tonight, unless you work for 15 minutes on organizing your paper piles, you’re sure to get that little task completed. No cheating permitted.
