3 Steps to Organizing Work Life in 2019
It’s that time of the year again; the time when you start setting goals and new habits to integrate into your New Year; it’s officially January!
Most common career goal:
You have probably already set your career goals for 2019. One of the most common career goals is to be ‘more organized’ and you probably have it high on your list, right? I mean, who doesn’t dream of having all his in-coming info, daily tasks, reminders, and meetings intricately organized? Think of how much time that can save you.
Advantages of Organizing Work Life:
Organizing work life has many advantages; having your tasks organized in a timely and achievable manner is bound to highly increase your productivity and save time. It is also going to reduce your stress level significantly; you know what you are doing, what you did and what you will do, everything is listed down, what is there to stress about?
In fact, being more organized will help you submit your tasks and attend your meetings on time; meeting all our deadlines is everyone’s dream, right?
How to Get Started:
If you aren’t used to being organized, this may seem a bit daunting, but it really isn’t. Organizing your work life is a relatively easy process that once you get the hang of, it will turn into a habit that you do unconsciously.
Here are a few tips that might help you out:
Organize your Work space:
The first thing you need to do is organize your desk/working space. You have no idea how much it’s going to benefit you. Throw away all the clutter (aka: unnecessary papers and documents that you have let pile up because you were too lazy to get rid of them), and make way for the important stuff. Keep your things in a neat order, separate documents, and work in a generally organized environment. This will help you de-stress, save time, and find everything you are looking for.
2. Organize your Tasks:
Secondly, you can organize your tasks and meetings by regularly using your calendar and to-do-list.
Personally, I like using a physical to-do list to keep up with my tasks, and a wall calendar to be up to date with pre-scheduled meetings.
3. Organize your Desktop and Email:
Another thing you can do is organize your desktop, files, mails, shared files, drive, and incoming information. This will help you majorly in saving time by knowing exactly where everything is located.
