Happy New Year 2021 - How to start organizing again for 2021?
See, Write, and Post-it. Our eyes see and record every memory that goes on in life.
Every day I was trying to be an organized person, and I shared and write about how to be organized in my blog. I also write on how to practice to be an organized person. I've been followed every tip and the right way to be more productive. But, sometimes, there are one day or two days a week, or even the whole week where I had to cancel a plan or completely just do everything without any plan B.
In other words, I just go on through my days without any plan ahead and doing all sort of thing on the spot. And sometimes I felt like it is so messy in my head like I don't know what I want to do. At that time, I realize that it is so important to be organized. We all were not born naturally as an organized person, it was build from the habit and practices. So, how to start organizing?
How to start organizing again for 2021?
1. Write things down
The first step, none other than anything is writing down on a small note. The first practice I've been using since I was in school is writing everything on a small book. I write everything, like the name of the teacher, my friend's birthday, my homework lists, and the chores my mom asked me to do. If you keep this practice every day, you realize that that's the first step that teaches you to be more organized in your daily life.
2. Schedule and Deadlines
Being old is not an excuse for you to not make any schedule. Who cares if your age is 20, 30, 40, or 50 or more. A schedule is not only for a student, or college student, or for anyone who had an assignment to finish with. A schedule is for everyone. Don't say that you don't have time to make a schedule, or saying that it is just for kids. It makes your life simple, you can targetting the deadlines of any of your work that has to be done.
3. Don't put so much stress
Sometimes, those who were too organized were panicking if their target isn't achievable. I was that person. I hated it when my plan is ruined. Once my plan is not going well with what I had planned earlier, I don't have the mood to continue my next project or any works ahead. Don't be like that. Sometimes, a plan isn't perfect but it's not a reason for us to get stress over it. We had 365 or 366 days in a year, it will always have a chance to make a day better than before. So, don't get too much stressed if the plan you organized isn't going well on a day.
4. Stop procrastinate
Don't wait and start doing it. The longer you waited, the longer you dragged the time, and you will waste so much thing to do. If you had a plan to do, then start writing it down, don't let your mood control you. Keep going on doing the things that you suppose to do. Procrastinating delays your progress to be more organized.
Always keep yourself to be disciplined. Teach yourself the importance of discipline in life. There's a quote saying "discipline is the bridge between goals and accomplishment" by Jim Rohn. If you want to achieve certain levels of organized lifestyle, you had to put more on your discipline. Even if you a smart person, and had so much talent, but if you put aside self-discipline, you maybe will get your goals, but it will take a long time and you had wasted a lot of your time.
