Business owners, household leaders and those who are generally busy from day-to-day need to stay on top of their to-do lists. Women offer wear many hats through out the week – boss, employee, wife, mother, sister, daughter, grocery buyer, dinner maker, house cleaner, driver, etc. So how do these wonder women stay on their A-game? They stay organized.
You have to build good and consistent habits to stay organized. Organization doesn’t come naturally to most people. Over the years, we develop systems to help. Here are my top 5 habits to become more organized and stay organized!
1. Organize your mornings.
Before you go to bed, look at your day ahead. Make sure you’re ready for what’s coming at you. Lay out your clothes, plan a filling breakfast and make sure your everything your kids will need is ready for an easy morning. Wake up early so you can have a little downtime before the day begins. Make your bed. It’s crazy how the simple task of making your bed can help your whole day get off on the right foot.
2. Organize your time.
Know where you’re spending your time throughout they day. Time is valuable, so don’t waste it. Organizing your time will you give more freedom to do the things you enjoy doing. Map out your day from beginning to end. It will help you not to feel stressed or forget to get something done.
3. Organize what is important to you.
Make what you enjoy doing a priority. Ensure anything that’s important to you is mapped out on your calendar. Whether it is going to the gym, attending every single soccer your game your little girl is playing in, or anything else. You need to identify what’s important to you and then make it a priority.
4. Organize your home.
You can waste a lot of time for searching for your car keys every morning. So have a spot for everything and put everything in it’s place. It will cut down on time and stress.
5. Organize your work.
Keep a daily to-do list of at least three things you need to get done. That way you won’t overwhelm yourself and you can stay focused on what’s needed for the day. Before you leave for the day write down your top three for tomorrow.
