Most of us won’t admit to being disorganized but often we need to pause and try putting things in our life differently, perhaps in a better way. Whether you wish to keep a tidier office or arranging your work in a to-do list, this guide will help in bringing out the more organized side of your personality. It is common knowledge that those of us from Africa seemed not to be very organized. This is false!
The modern African business person looks out for the best things around him. What this means is that been more detailed and organized is what has put many of the successful men and women we see around us today.
However, if you are still struggling to become a better business person, we have listed some of the ways you can get more organized:
Keep a diary
If you are feeling disorganized the best way to rise back on top of things is by keeping a diary. Buy a moderate-sized notebook or diary and keep a record of upcoming reminders or important meetings.
All the better if you have a smartphone as it contains a reminder function. Since most of our phones are in our hands or pocketsit’s easier to be reminded at the right time.
Have a clear out
Many times we get new stuff and the old things keep piling up. Cleaning out the items that you don’t use anymore can only do you good. Often it becomes a very satisfying experience.
A big mistake we make is stuffing drawers with the things left. The best thing to do is to arrange everything in an orderly manner. Labelling particular drawers for specific items can serve as being very helpful.
Another great idea would be to stack CD’s and DVD’s in an alphabetic order so finding them would become increasingly simple.
Set aside planning time
Life today has become complicated and busy and for some people it’s close to impossible to catch a break. For such a busy period setting aside time to organize plans can be a great assistance.
Take some time to sit by yourself and plan how to tackle different events or places, create reminders to guide you along the way.
A good way to avoid leaving things around is to keep reminding yourself that you would have to tidy things later anyway.
Disciplining you mind as well as your habits makes a real long-term difference. If you don’t have the willpower, just set aside some time for your personal self daily and keep clearing out used things. Minimum mess equals maximum organization.
