Many people often complain that in the day only 24 hours, for which they do not have time. Because of the constant hurry, everything falls from the hands, important tasks remain unresolved, fatigue increases, and self-esteem falls. There is a sense of guilt for own disorganization and there is a desire to dramatically change your life, habits, worldview.
It turns out that it is not necessary to be organized, it is possible to become one. Of course, for this you will have to make a lot of efforts, change the way of life, and maybe even get out of the comfort zone. Probably among your acquaintances there are people who manage everything, finish work on time, never late for meetings, which positively affects relations with others. In addition, they manage to always look great, support in their house order and create coziness.
If you dream of becoming the same, then first study and analyze the manners of their behavior and habits, and then try to bring new rules into your life.
Identification of priority tasks
Some people complain that the whole day they spin like a squirrel in a wheel, do not squat for a minute, forget about rest and food, but in the evening they remember that some important problem was left without attention. To avoid this, learn to prioritize.
An organized person always knows what he has according to plan, in what order it is necessary to carry out vital tasks. The plan created in advance, if necessary, is adjusted, but important assignments and questions are not postponed until later, they are solved first.
The plan in writing allows you not to forget about the main thing!
A useful habit: observance of order
To become an organized person you need to develop a habit of putting everything in its place. Scattered things around the apartment, a bunch of unmounted documents on the desktop, old letters in the mailbox discouraged. Living in such chaos, it is unlikely to be able to concentrate on something. To find the right document or thing it will take a lot of time.
Having spent only 10-15 minutes on routine business, you will save not only time, but also strength. Just imagine that you still have to put things in order sooner or later, and for this you will need not minutes, but hours or days. And while you are constantly living in a mess, among the mass of scattered things. Smart people say: “Chaos on the table – chaos in the head.” And, probably, they are right.
In addition to all of the above, it is worth mentioning about throwing unnecessary. Get rid of all the useless: clothes and shoes that you do not wear, things that have not been used for a long time. Also, do not store broken equipment, broken dishes, gifts and souvenirs that do not cause positive emotions.
Write down new ideas in a notebook
In the person’s mind, various thoughts are constantly “spinning”. Often, interesting ideas, plans, possible solutions to existing problems, lists of tasks and purchases make it difficult to concentrate on some kind of business.
To keep the mind always clear – transfer your thoughts to paper. Having developed the habit of writing ideas into a notebook, you stop thinking about them, allowing yourself to concentrate on work. All the rest will be done, but a little later: having written down, you definitely will not forget even the smallest tasks, and new ideas “will not fly” out of your head.
The habit of making plans for the future
Dreaming and making plans for the future is a useful habit.
Organized and successful people have an idea of what they want to see themselves in the future. Try to understand what you can do every day to get closer to your goal.
Try to look at yourself from the outside, evaluate your behavior, analyze the advantages and disadvantages, harmful and useful habits. This will help to understand what exactly needs to change life, in what direction to move, what goals to set.
Draw up charts and plans, learn to see and think ahead, and you can understand how these or those actions will affect your future life. And do not forget that the results of your efforts are often not immediately apparent. Have patience and boldly go to your goal.
Attitude to finance: we record and analyze
An organized person knows the value of money, he always keeps track of how much and what he spent. The main thing is to develop a convenient system that will help monitor earnings, losses, waste, etc.
To begin with, you can try to keep track of finances in the Excel program: everything is written down and analyzed. This will help to avoid unnecessary waste in the future, not to get bogged down in debts and loans, to understand what can be refused in case of unplanned expenses. Organized people “watch” money every day. But this does not mean that they are sparse or economical. They just learned to properly “build” relationships with money.
Evaluation of past failures
Human life consists of black and white stripes. We make mistakes, face failures, experience negative emotions, and sometimes apathy. Life seems unfair, but the desire to move on disappears. Do not despair, because your thoughts shape the future and only from you depends on how it will be. Stop, take a deep breath and move on. The main thing is to analyze your failures, take responsibility for them on yourself, be sure to learn lessons. Any failure can be used for growth. Only those who do nothing do not make mistakes! Ask yourself what happened can teach you how to use this situation to your advantage, try to make it so that it does not happen again.
It’s great to be organized! What could be better than achieving the goals set, the embodiment of what was conceived in life, the enjoyment of the fruits of one’s own success. But success can come to each of us, the main thing is to set a goal to change life for the better, to instill useful habits, to constantly improve.
A confident person makes the right decisions that help solve even the most difficult tasks. The main difference between organized people is the ability to focus on the important, in the name of achieving the goals.
The main thing is to believe in yourself, since there is nothing more important than internal beliefs and relations with oneself. Imagine what kind of person you would like to see yourself in a month, a year, a decade and move in small steps towards the goal, changing habits and looks.
