No one is born organized. It is an habit one has to cultivate in order to be tagged as an organized person. Therefore, to stay organized, here are a few essential tips to help you:

1. WRITE THINGS DOWN

Organized persons write things down. Quite a whole lot of individuals depend on memorization in which most times, they end up losing vital information. The faintest pen they say, is better than the sharpest brain.


If you cherish ideas, you may want to keep a notepad and a pen close-by so you don’t lose those God-given ideas. And now that we are living in the days of technology, your gadgets can also serve as tools.

Every morning when you wake up, pen down your plans for the day. This way you can also keep track of your progress as you go along.

2. MAKE A SCHEDULE AND ATTACH A DEADLINE TO IT

An organized person does not waste time doing unnecessary things because he/she has their schedule drawn out before their day begins and they know that there is a deadline to get each tasks done.

Being organized goes along with being productive so develop the habit of making a schedule for the day or week and stick with it.

3. DO NOT PROCRASTINATE

Organized persons know that procrastination adds more to their work. The longer you wait to get things done, the more difficult it is for you to achieve.

Whatever you plan to do, as long as you have something to set it rolling, begin the process immediately. Avoid procrastination as much as you can.

4. GIVE EVERYTHING A PLACE

Keeping things in their allocated corners reduces confusion. It is so easy to throw things around but when you make a conscious effort to put things where they belong, it helps you keep your space neat and in order.

5. CLEAR OUT CLUTTERS REGULARLY

As often as you can, look into your closet and every other place you keep things. Clear out the unimportant things you don’t need.

So, instead of having a stack of old papers, clothes, shoes and bags hanging all around, your closet with be spacious, neat and ready to receive newer items. I have the habit of giving out things I haven’t necessarily used for the past six months.

Keeping your space and life organized is not just for you, but for everyone around you as well. So, it is important to make the extra effort to be organized.
