Some people are born more organised than others, but we can all develop habits that will make for a more organised and productive life. Here are five to consider.

Write Things Down

Don’t try and remember everything. From shopping lists or ideas for home decor, to important family or business dates or goals you’d like to achieve – write them down!

Do It Now

The longer you wait to do something, the more difficult it will become. Putting in the effort to get things done as soon as possible will make your life less stressful and less demanding.

Give Everything a Home

Knowing where to find a thing saves time and frustration. Decide where things belong, label the space if necessary but NEVER designate a storage space as “miscellaneous!”

Get Rid of Clutter

Schedule regular clear outs to go through the items in your inbox, cupboards or drawers. Only keep things you really need and use, which will clear the way for greater creativity and productivity.

Delegate Responsibilities

Whether at home or work, delegate as much as you can. Organised people know how to share the load. No person can do everything, but everyone can do something. This is a great way to help others grow and develop too.
