When you have a lot going on in your life and you are trying to balance everything well, you need a bit of organisation to make sure everything goes to plan. If you want to be a bit more organised in your life, here are 8 habits of highly organised people that you can incorporate in your life.
1. They have a routine they follow every day
It’s so important to put a set routine in place that you follow every single day. That way, you can get up every morning and know exactly what you are doing and you will get into a habit of doing it every day. As it becomes more of a routine, it will become a less challenging task as it will feel like second nature.
2. They declutter their surroundings
There is no space for clutter in your life if you want to be more organised. Highly organised people aim to put everything away in its proper place and they ensure there is no clutter around. It clutters your mind if everything is out of sorts in your surroundings. We have a video on this to help you - snip.ly/eycg64
3. They eat well during their day
Following a healthy lifestyle is so important if you want to stay on top of your life. After all, if you are well nourished, it will fuel your body with the energy you need to stay organised. Therefore, make sure you eat well every day to stay on top of everything.
4. They write things down
Trying to remember everything off the top of your head is where problems begin. A highly organised person always has a to-do list that they follow to ensure they stay organised in their life. Having it written down ensures you can tick off the task and stay on top of your life.
5. They set realistic goals for themselves
As much as you wish you could do everything all at once, you need to be realistic when it comes to goals. Setting realistic goals means that people can ensure they complete the task well and they can stay organised in their life. They don’t have to worry about not tackling other tasks until they have completed that goal.
6. They complete daunting tasks first
It’s so easy to put things we can’t face to the back of our mind. But by doing this, we worry about it when we are trying to get on with our day. Therefore, highly organised people always tackle the daunting task first so they can have it out of the way.
7. They set alarms and reminders
Using tools efficiently is a habit that highly organised people follow. Whether that be using alarms or reminders on their phone, it can ensure they meet each task timely and they won’t ever forget an important event.
8. They prioritise in their life
There’s not enough hours in the day to do everything. Therefore, if you want to be a highly organised person, you need to prioritise more in your life. Choose wisely when it comes to what you need to do and always put the important things first to stay organised.
