How to Get Organized in a Busy Life

Clutter and organization in your home and office can really add up. At some point in your life, you have no doubt noticed how what you haven’t purged hinders your focus – and potentially hinders your success. Keeping everything up and easily accessible is a productivity killer. There are several options for controlling, storing and eliminating clutter from your life, but the best approach is the one that best suits you.

get organizedIf you are a busy person, creating order in your schedule and home requires time and dedication. It™s easy to slip into the habit of holding onto items that only serve a short-term purpose – and ultimately, they can hurt the goals you…re trying to achieve.

Businesses often blame disorganization and lack of efficiency on paperwork, and it has become a popular excuse in many business operations to delay spending money and time on re-organizing. Professional firms often find that the paperwork burden can cause irreparable harm on the bottom line, with losing a client or client spending several hours looking for a particular document. Experience has shown that it is not just digital information that deserves organized.

In a school setting, a school assignment needs to be completed by deadline for it to be a valid completed class work. A student who fails to complete a project could becease in class, potentially affecting their overall performance and earning a failing score and possible consequences. It™s the same in the workplace (or in your personal life for that matter).

It’™s fine to keep items that serve a purpose in the present tense, such as completed homework, completed expectation, but if it causes undue stress or distracts from your current task, it needs to do a page or two in the disorganized garage.

In a Suffering Artists workshop, I use 4-D- incomprehensible charts to help the visual artist distinguish between “immediate-re embassies” and ” transitioned” litter in their fortress. The “immediate-re801” type of litter could mean little more than lumping stuff on top of things. Most junk in the house or office is “transitional,” involving a series of small decluttering tasks for newly constructed or modified clutter free environments. Since so much of a person’s work involves staying organized, creating a workable, but manageable, breaks the goal of achieving the ultimate “immediate-reatem” clutter free state.

The best way to get organized in a busy life is to focus on the “transitional” clutter and free-up time for your full-focusing on your long-term goals. By establishing just one simple rule, you can move quickly to creating order for both your space and your habits. The rule is: Anything here that you don’t use or need, throw out and get gone. This investment in excess time and effort is well worth it. Once dumped, have fun – feet are on the ground and energy is renewed. If nothing better happens, you may decide to consider adding these organizing principles to your skill set for creating prosperity in your world this coming year.

Remain positive. Make a plan to handle one task at a time, and organize your schedule so that your “immediate-receiver” tasks are done. The subsequent tasks of your slot for creating action clutter will be assigned as they come.

Develop a system that allows you to function and maintain order without help from complicated to-do lists. Develop a simple and easy to use system that will allow you to fully avoid overwhelm. When you use this simple system, you are better able to see what comes next without getting stuck in a frustration mode.

Do not allow fancy gadgets, equipment, or time gadgets to distract you. Sure, technology can help you get things done in record time, but real, successful productivity comes with organizing proper tools, and maintaining your focus.

If you commit yourself to these basic rules of rainy, organized poles, you will definitely get there. When the sun is shining again, everything will be in place for you to see the rest of the world come in.
