Organization is one of the most frequent stressors we place upon ourselves that can be easily rectified. Possibly because we think it takes to much time to put things in proper order but think of how many times you have spent 10 minutes, 30 minutes, maybe an hour trying to locate something you know that you set right there on the counter or put right there in the drawer and you go to get it and it’s not where you thought you put it.
When you make time for organization in your life you will have everything you need at your finger tips or at least you'll know where to find it.
Considering that we only have twenty-four hours in a day, it’s imperative that we find corners to cut. If you break down your twenty-four hours, they may look something like this:
8 hours Sleep
1 hours Shower, groom, and dress
8 hours Work
1.5 hours Commute to and from work (or total drive time)
2.5 hours Preparing, eating, and cleaning up after 3 meals
3 hours Free time
These are only the necessities, but they add up to a whopping twenty-one hours. This, in a nutshell, is why keeping your home and your work life in order are so important.
You always have basic rules to follow.
Rule #1 List
Rule #2 Lists
Rule #3 More Lists
Do you need to ask why? For two reasons; we need to be able to see all of our tasks so that we can put it in priority order, also by placing your thoughts on paper this will ensure that you won’t accidentally neglect any tasks or worse, totally forget about them.
If you are one of the difficult individuals who find you are on a rollercoaster ride when it comes to organization and staying organized, you fell like you have it together and then a week later everything is piled and scattered as before, there is only one recommendation that I can offer you How to Be Organized in Spite of Yourself.
This is the perfect resource for the modern age of fast-paced business and lifestyles. You cannot miss with this book. It covers ten basic personality types such as Perfectionist Plus, Hopper, Fence Sitter, Pack Rat, and Total Slob.
You need to determine what tasks will need your immediate attention and move those priorities to the top of the list or number them on the paper. Now choose your top priority, place the remainder of the items on the lists to the side, and focus 100 percent of your thoughts on each task in due order. You have now reduced the stress you felt from being overwhelmed with to much clutter in your mind.
No, it isn’t always that uncomplicated. You may have other issues come into play throughout the day, so you will have to go back to basics, you will either have to juggle to place something on your priority list to complete today, place it on a list to be done tomorrow, or delegate it to another party to complete but don’t forget to follow up to be sure it gets completed.
Your list will be never ending—what may not get done today will move to tomorrow; what isn’t done tomorrow should move to the next day’s list, and so on. As long as a task is in the process of completion, you won’t forget it.
Once you have completed the task in full, then and only
then should you remove it from the list.
Remove the clutter from your life !!
Relieving organizational stress is impossible when your home surroundings or your work surroundings are cluttered.
If your surroundings are in order and uncluttered your mind will be relaxed, and uncluttered. When your mind is relaxed your body will follow suit. Remaining relaxed allows you to keep more control over how you react to any given situation that may arise even a stressful one. You will diffuse daily pressures by establishing and maintaining a mindset of harmony and balance.
