Get Organized in 2018
The beginning of a new year is a great time for a fresh start. What can you do to make 2018 your most organized yet? Here are a few tips to start the year off right:
Take time to write down goals for the year both personally and professionally. Chart a plan and map out steps. When you write down goals, you are ten times more likely to achieve them!
Don’t be afraid to let things go. Donate what you can and take the tax deduction. If you’re not going to use it, get in into the hands of someone who will. The effort of trying to sell it or save it for someone is not always worth the hassle of holding onto it.
Create a Routine
We are creatures of habit–good bad or otherwise. Create some routines for getting things done more efficiently this year. Set up a schedule with regular times to work on specific projects and goals. Make use of digital calendars and list apps to help.
Be a Finisher
A favorite quote that works well with kids and anyone else who is easily distracted. “Finish one job before you start another.” Wise words to live by if you want your space to stay organized. When you’re in a project, train yourself to put away every last detail before moving on to the next. Living this way will make a huge difference in the ability to keep things in place.
As we rely more on technology, we need less paper. Scan what you can. It can be as simple as taking a photo with your phone. A quality scanner can be a great investment. It can even help eliminate the need for files.
