How To Stay Organized At All Times

A short guide on how to stay organized and on top of your tasks.

It can be an enduring task to manage your time efficiently throughout your daily life and stay organized. The constant pressure of you workflow and day to day tasks can quickly become mundane, leading to an array of issues with maintaining a productive schedule. Regardless of whether you’re a student or halfway through your career, these tips are meant to assist you in your pursuit of a time efficient schedule.

Being a student

Almost everybody knows a student or has a friend who simply spends all of their time on studying. Sure, they realize it’s boring and tedious but they still end up doing it anyway whilst ignoring all the advice of their friends to “chill out” and take some time off.

Then you might know the other type, who just “wings it” and ends up scraping work in order to get their assignments done in time while putting enough effort just to get by. This is the story for the vast majority unfortunately.

Now regardless of who you associate yourself with more, one is for certain, the compulsive studying friend tends to feel less guilty when the time comes to show their work. And guilt is something that will always engulf the second type’s life, wondering if they could have done better. While you might make the argument that the one who studies a lot might miss out on many events of a lifetime, the fact of the matter is that no matter what you decide in life there will always be a trade-off. And if being organized is your goal, then get ready to make a commitment to it.

Step 1 | Schedule

Make a time table. Your mind can sometimes make you feel that time passes slower than it does, and if that is the case you’re bound for trouble. Getting in the habit of planning out your day through each hour will slowly teach your brain to adjust to the passing of time and help you plan and stick to a specific set of tasks. So if two hours are dedicated to fun, an equal amount must be allocated for the time you spend working. Don’t cheat out of either of those and you will slowly sink into a new productive habit.
