-- Easy Ways To Stay Organized And Get All Things Done In Less Time

Organizing is what you do before you do something, so that when you do it, it is not all mixed up. – A. A. Milne

Being organized is one of the most important things in my life. Even though it is not so easy to stay organized, it should be part of everybody’s life.

I don’t have time to do that. Wish I had more time.’

I can’t even remember how many times I used this excuse for almost everything I hate, or worse, I enjoy. But let me tell you this: this time no more excuses. If I learned something from blogging, studying and from my life, it is that we all have enough time to create the life we want. It just needs a little practising.

We all have been given 24 hours and still some of the people have the ability to get a lot of things done in these 24 hours. I think you know what is the key to this success – it’s the organization. 

Confession time: when I was at the high school, I even didn’t know the word ‘diary’. What the hell is this? But with more tasks came bigger responsibility and I wasn’t able to keep so many tasks without forgetting them. Sooo, I try a few organization tips. And wow, things got better. Even though it was quite hard to found the system, I found it and it still works. And today, I bring these easy tips to you and hope it will help you too.

5 easy ways how to stay organized and get most of your things done in less time.

 

ONE| Get yourself a (big) diary

Okay, it doesn’t have to be that big, but it should have a space for your notes and tasks. The most important is, to keep it with yourself as often as possible. I carry my diary in my bag almost everywhere and every day. It’s because you never know when you get a new (important) task and you definitely don’t want to forget it.

If it’s a problem to keep it, try, for example, to create or design your own diary. Maybe it will give you the reason to carry it everywhere.

TWO| Keep the workspace clean

Before I start writing a new blog post, I have to have a clean workspace. There is nothing worse than the mess on the desk: A. it distracts you from the process and B. it just doesn’t look good.

So, make sure, that your workspace is clean and there are no distractions while you are in the process. For creative one, Melyssa has an amazing post about how having two desks can help you with the productivity.

 

THREE| To-Do list is the key

If there is a day when a lot of things need to be done, create a to-do list (you can download one here). It’s my key to be organized every day. Sit and write everything down. Then order the single task from ‘urgent’ to ‘not so urgent’ task. This order will help you to better organize your time and you will also be able to recognize which of these tasks need much effort and which need only a few minutes.

FOUR| Unplug from distractions

Okay, to be honest, this is something I am still working on. It the hardest part of my process. But I make a progress and with time it seems to be not such a big problem to actually unplug myself and focus on my work.

Everything is about your will! If you have the will to unplug yourself from every distraction, it will give you much more time to create everything. Just log out from Facebook and Pinterest and leave tweeting on later and start doing what you really need to.

We all have been given 24 hours and it is up to you how you evaluate it. 

FIVE| Evaluate your time

In the organization process, you need to realize what is actually important for you and what is not. If you spend a lot of time on useless things then you will never ever have enough time and you will feel bad about it. So, decide which of those tasks on your to-do list worth wasting your time and which of them are not so important.


Being organized doesn’t mean that your life has to be lined. It’s about being in your right mind when you need it and be able to count on you when everything around you falls apart. Try it and you will see how being organized can improve your day.

What are your tricks to being organized? I am looking forward to reading all of them.

    This are such great tips! I’m trying to keep things up with my diary, but I’m not consistent with it. I’d probably take your advice and take it with me everywhere! Also to do lists are the best things ever!

      Thank you, Federica! I am glad these tips are helpful! You definitely need to keep your diary with you because then it’s your end haha 😀

  2. I need so badly to get organized. All of these are great points and I love your writing. I need to write things down too and also declutter. I hoarded things for years. Time to get rid of what I won’t use as I get older now.
