5 Ways To Get Organised♡

It's no secret that I have not been very organized this year. It seems as though all this time went by with me doing nothing constructive. I took some time to think about what it is I want to achieve and how I would like to achieve it. This made me realise that I have no time to waste.

I thought it wasn't a bit crazy to share tips on how to get organised when I'm not even close but then I thought it could serve as motivation for myself or maybe someone else out there. Here are the 5 steps I'm going to take in order to get organised:


1. Write it down: 
Whenever I write things down it makes it seem more real. I think making to-do lists is very helpful and I must admit that ticking things off is one of the most amazing feelings.

2. Make a schedule :  
I am not a huge fan of schedules but at the moment I feel as though it would be quite helpful. I spend so much time doing absolutely nothing by creating a schedule I will realise what has to be done and I will allocate a certain time to do it. 

3. Do it as soon as possible:
 This is what I struggle with the most. I'm always leaving things off until the last minute and I believe if I finish off tasks as soon as I can I'll getting so much done. I recently heard of a book titled "Eat that frog" which states that if you complete the most difficult task first it would be easier to do everything else knowing what you have accomplished and I honestly couldn't agree more.

4. Multitasking: 
 I know that many people don't agree with this but I feel like it works well for me. If I can do more than one thing at a time then I should do more than one thing. I've also learnt that utilising any free time is very important. It's surprising how much one can do in a short period of time.

5. Set goals: 
 I think goals are the best motivation. Knowing what it is that I want to achieve and when I want to achieve it really encourages me to work harder. One of my favourite quotes is: "You can have whatever you are willing to struggle for." It reminds me that nothing will be handed to me on a platter, if I want it I have to go out and get it. 

How do you stay organised?

  7. As an organization junkie, I can tell you that all these things work for me. Except maybe multitasking, but I still do it from time to time. Keeping to-do lists in a notebook makes it easier to keep track of them, too (if you wanted an extra tip).

  8. I'm not the most organized person and I'm okay with that. Writing things down has helped me a lot. If I don't do that I'm all screwed up.
