How Can I Be More Organised?

5 Things Organised People Do Every Day

Becoming organised is easier said than done, but it's possible to maintain it if you make a few changes to your daily routine. Organised people are more productive as a result because they're more able to easily focus on their tasks. By following suit with their regular habits, you too can get and keep it together like a pro. See what organised people do every day.

1. Wake up and think about the day ahead.

Scrambling out the door and diving right into your tasks can be hectic. You also waste time trying to figure out what to tackle first. Before fully starting your day, look ahead at your schedule and to-dos to mentally prepare yourself. That way, you can manage your time efficiently.

2. Maintain a calendar or planner.

It's hard to stay organised if you only store things in your head. Organised people note events electronically or on paper. It's easy to refer to when making future plans and you can better prioritise by knowing what's ahead.

3. Have to-do lists.

Writing out what you need to get done on a daily basis makes it easy to keep track. It's satisfying to be able to cross things off your list and you'll always know what's left to be done.

4. Keep their email inbox under control.

There are three kinds of people in this world: those with hundreds (or thousands) of unread emails, those with zero unread emails, and those in between. Be the person in between. Reading every single email that comes through can be time-consuming, but letting them sit forever doesn't do too much for you, either. Scan subject lines as they come in and use your email tools to help you group them. Flag less urgent but important ones to read later, move ones that require action to task lists, and so forth. Your life will be so much easier.

5. Reflect on what still needs to be done by the end of the day.

Go over what's left on your to-do list and move things around as needed. All you'll need in the morning is a quick refresher.
