7 Practical Ways to Improve Organization

January 9, 2018 1:56 am

Many of us wish we were more organized. From the state of our home, to our business and finances, organization can make much of life easier, or more difficult. The following tips come from Time Timer, a trusted tool for organizational professionals, families, schools and businesses to help people manage time more effectively by visualizing how time elapses.

Declutter and put everything in its place. If this seems overwhelming, set a timer for 20 minutes and do a blitz pick up.

Make a list of everything you need to do this coming year, month and week, and then prioritize which tasks are most important.

Do the boring (to you) tasks first and get them out of the way instead of spending time dwelling on having to do them.

Break up big jobs into manageable chunks of time so they seem less daunting. Some even suggest breaking up your resolution into chunks to make your goal more attainable.

Schedule breaks in your day. Take a walk, grab a cup of coffee, check your social media accounts and then get back to work with a fresh mind.

Audit your time weekly and make adjustments. Did you spend too much time on email? Set specific times for email and then turn off your push notifications. Whatever it is that’s a time parasite, rearrange the time spent on it.

Set firm boundaries so that work doesn't creep into life too much and vice versa. There are sometimes exceptions, but the 9 p.m. work emails are not usually a crisis, are they? And how much time of your work day are you spending looking at a friend's baby registry? Allow yourself a few minutes and then get back to work.

Managing time is key to getting and staying organized. A tool that helps one understand and track their time better can help them reach all of their 2018 goals.
