Staying Organized

Today's society is moving at a faster pace than ever before. We are faced with more responsiblities, tasks, and daily duties that must be fulfilled as each year passes. Without maintaining proper organizational habits, we may never realize our full potentials. What's worse? Oftentimes, our lives end up lost in the whirldwind of chaotic clutter.

So how do we stay organized? The theory behind it is really simple. It is the follow through that takes some real effort. First, start off by cleaning your home, your automobile, and your office. If you have no idea what is around you, how can you organize your thoughts, your belongings, and carry out all of your daily tasks to their full potential. Next, make two lists, and divide them into two columns. On the first list(1st column), jot down your long term goals. On that same list, in the 2nd column, jot down the actions that you must take to achieve those goals. On the second list, title it "Today's Goals" . Write down exactly what you need to accomplish, and in what order(make a copy if you need to). Start checking them off one by one as you finish them. If you need to add some notes to help you to takes action, do so at the bottom of the page, and refer to them as you go. The third list is "Weekly Goals". This one is usually a reminder to do housework, and to pay bills on time, or to make it to a prior engagement or meeting. Once again, list your items/duties, then check them off.

There you have it ladies and gentlemen. There are the three lists(daily, weekly, and long-term) and three clean-up jobs(home, auto, and office) that have the ability to improve the quality of your lives forever. It's all up to you. Will you add "Mow the lawn" to your list.....or just "Buy more Gummi Bears"? You can add whatever you like. It's your life....but I'd suggest you make it count! Take care everyone!!!

See you next time!!!
