One of the biggest things you can do right now to immediately improve your life and productivity is to GET ORGANIZED.
Organization makes doing things a lot easier. You will know exactly where everything is and you can work more efficiently and effectively.
Put it this way, if you already think you are organized, there is someone out there who is more organized.
Get organized to the point where people are actually disgusted and repulsed at how organized you are.
Once you reach that stage, you know you are going to be able to work at 100% of your potential.
Being organized is not just moving a few things around on your desk. It involves organizing EVERY ASPECT of your life. If you find yourself constantly searching for things and locating where you left something, you are wasting time that can be dedicated to improving your own success.
Think of all the time you waste looking for where your keys are, where you put that last thing you bought, and where the fuck you left the remote.
How much time would you save if you organized everything to the point where you knew EXACTLY where to look for it instantly without hesitation?
It really isn’t hard.
Create a system of organization for yourself based on your personal lifestyle.
Everyone is different.
What works for one person will be totally different for another.
The best step to stop forgetting where things are initially is to WRITE THINGS DOWN.
When you write something down, you can never forget it. Unless of course, you forget where you left the piece of paper. Sucks to be you and that unorganized.
Start working at it!
It really isn’t that hard to get organized and requires minimal time to organize a few things. After you organize certain aspects of your life, you will want to organize everything else because you will realize how much time it is saving you during the workday.
To sum it up, being organized:
1. Reduces stress of not realizing where you left things
2. Makes you more efficient
3. Makes you more productive
4. Makes it easier to manage your time
5. Creates a clean work environment that is comfortable to work in
I think #5 is of utmost importance to me.
I love being in a comfortable environment. It makes it so much easier to work and get things done when I am relaxed.
If you have ever met me personally, you already know how I operate. I know EXACTLY where everything is that I need instantly and my room and work station area is SPARKLING CLEAN.
I can’t operate in any other environment anymore until I make it so disgustingly organized that people are repulsed by my work ethic and organization skills!
