What Does It Mean To Be Organized?
To be organized means different things to different people. For me, being organized simply means being able to plan your activities efficiently and in a systematic way. Whatever it means to you, below are some tips that will help you organize your life.
How To Be More Organized
1. Set your priorities
Organized people have priorities. This helps them to know the next line of action. So, write down your priorities and begin with them. Don’t just jump into working with anything (task) that comes into your mind. Set your priorities. Make sure you have a note where you write down every activity you have for the week.
2. Schedule your work and Set deadlines
Having things done in a proper manner is not a talent. It is a habit anyone can practice. To be more organized at work, schedule your work, set deadlines for its completion, and even delegate some (work) to others. This will help you to be in control of yourself and your to-do list. Too many works can disorganize you as a person (mentally and physically).
3. Practice decluttering
The first idea on how to be more organized at home is to declutter. Remove every unnecessary item that disorganizes your house. Are there clothes you’re not wearing anymore? Arrange them in one place. Likewise, any other material you no longer need at home. Declutter them and make your house clean and more organized.
4. Clean and arrange things
If you’re looking forward to being more organized at work, declutter, clean and arrange things. Make sure you dispose of every tattered thing in your office and make things be in order. Consider a specific place where you will be keeping materials you don’t need anymore. This will help your office to be more organized.

5. Practice time management
Organized people know the importance of time and they try everything possible to avoid procrastination. What are your tasks or activities for the day? Break them down in a way that everything will be easier for you to manage so that you won’t waste all your time and energy trying to complete just one task for the whole day. Here is my previous post about how to manage your time wisely.
6. Learn to keep records
Organized people are meticulous. Always try to keep records of things. For instance, in your office, have records of the things you’ve done after the day’s work. Likewise at home, try to know or have a separate place where you keep things. Don’t mix everything up. Give everything a home. It will make things easier for you to identify.
