We live in what can be thought of as the easiest of times, yet by the same thought, is the most difficult of times.
You and I both know that we are constantly inundated with information, sensory distractions, people and ideas that are looking to grab our attention. With all these things happening all the time, I feel that you are very much like me and find it difficult to achieve the goals you have set out for yourself.
Am I wrong?
What if I told you that you can achieve all of your goals that you have set out for yourself if you were willing to do just a few small things?
Would you be willing to implement a few simple ideas?
What about then?
What if I then explained that being organized was as easy as 1-2-3 and you could do it?
Success begins and ends with organization. Believe me, when I tell you this.
Organization is the cornerstone of achievement and not only will it amplify your results, it will give you a minimum of 8 different benefits.
- Your stress will dramatically go down. That’s right. Imagine yourself rummaging through a pile of pictures in search of a very specific object. As you realize that you cannot find it, what begins to happen? Your blood pressure and stress levels rise higher than Mount Everest, culminating in a very frustrating experience. Now imagine how much easier it would have been if things had been organized. A little bit of organization is the remedy for this. I can’t begin to count how many times I wished I had placed my keys and wallet down in an organized fashion.
- You will feel better about life. This is a proven fact! A little organization goes a long way. It shows the world and more importantly you, that you care. Nothing is more deflating in an office or in life than an unorganized space. It is not inviting and does not make anyone want to work with you or in your space. It is an uninspiring mess.
- You’ll be an inspiration to others. Think about this: If you refuse to put things away and stay unorganized, so will those around you, especially your kids. If you have kids, go ahead a teach them the value of being organized.
- Organization frees up your time. No longer are you scrambling to find stuff all the time. Those extra 5 and 10 minutes will start to add up. If you have to look for something 4 times a day and it takes 10 minutes each time, you have wasted 40 minutes of your day. More than enough time to exercise, read, take the dogs for a walk, spend time with your family among other things.
- You’ll do better at a professional level. An organized person gives a much better impression than an unorganized one. Can you image walking into a meeting and not being prepared? That’s called “Career Suicide”.
- You’ll further advance you. Organized people know how to cut out meaningless tasks. They know what their strengths are and they know what their weaknesses are. They know how to delegate, outsource and how to be efficient. They know what to do, when to do it, and most importantly how to do it well.
- You will save money. You will not buy duplicate items, you will not pay bills twice (or not at all), and most importantly, no last second purchases. You will know precisely what you have and have not done.
- You can set and achieve goals. It is well known that those of us who take the time to write down our goals (and not just any goals, but S.M.A.R.T. goals) are more likely to achieve them. Why? Because the moment you can see them, is the moment they become real. Organized people know this.
Did you know that any and or all of these are within your reach? All it will take is a small tweak here and there in what you do.
Getting organized, while at first, seems tedious, is actually quite simple. It takes discipline, focus and a little bit of energy.
Go out there and invest the time now. You will reap the benefits soon enough.
Cheers to your success,
