Steps to Being More Organized
If you ever feel like work is getting too chaotic, it may be because there is no organization. There are a few simple steps you can take that will help you manage the chaos and allow you to have a more productive time at work. Here are some steps to being more organized.
Write things down.
It has been proven that the best way to remember things is by writing them down. Taking note of dates, names, appointments, etc. will save you the frustration of knowing you had to do something but not remembering quite what.
Make schedules and deadlines.
Having a schedule and giving yourself deadlines ensures that tasks get done in a timely fashion. It also guarantees that the workday is being spent productively. Constantly flip-flopping from task to task or always thinking about what to do next causes time to be lost. An organized person values their time and will make sure it is not wasted.
Just because you have created deadlines, does not mean that you should leave completing your projects until the very last minute. Doing so may result in mediocre work and a pileup of tasks. Procrastinating will have you rushing to complete three tasks while simultaneously receiving three new ones.
Tidy up your space.
Working in a clean and organized space can lead to higher productivity. You can work more efficiently and there is simply no mess to get distracted by. Take the time every other week or so to declutter. Keep things that you use frequently close to you and discard items that no longer serve a purpose. You will find that having an organized workspace will help you be more organized.
Check and delete emails.
Now that you have cleared up your physical space, it is important to do the same to your inbox. Having a million unread emails will only serve to add unwanted stress and keep the important things hidden. Make sure that you are frequently reading your emails and getting rid of the unimportant ones. Create folders if that will help.
A lot of organization has to do with making sure you are dedicating an appropriate amount of time to each task. That may mean that you simply do not have time to give everything the necessary amount of attention. If that is the case, there is no shame in sharing tasks.
Although these suggestions were meant to help relieve the chaos in your workplace, you can implement them in your everyday life as well. Take the tips and let them help you become a more organized version of yourself.
