How to Get Yourself Organized

How to Get Yourself Organized

Organize your mind and your life! You will feel better and be more productive.

MENTAL CONTROL - 50% of organization is in your head. If you feel well organized you will be. Staying on top of things means doing things when they need to be done. Johnny on the spot. Gain a "do it now" attitude and it will really change your life.

GET A GOOD CALENDAR and use it! I keep all information on my calendar. When I write down an appointment, I write the phone number and address (and directions if needed). Remember the faintest ink is better than the best memory.

CLEAR OUT THE CLUTTER - Have a garage sale, donate to charity, whatever helps you to clear the clutter. Try to have a friend help you, you will keep less silly stuff with a friend to monitor you.

USE YOUR GARAGE - Keep only what you use everyday in your home. Other things should be put away. Buy organizing boxes, fill them, label them and store them in the garage, closets, etc.

DO NOT RENT A STORAGE UNIT! It is a waste of money for you to pay for junk you don't really need. A place for everything and everything in its place.

DON'T BUY MORE - Before you go to the checkout stand, stop and review your basket. Take out anything that you do not absolutely need.

Being organized will help with everything that you do. Set your priorities and keep yourself motivated until you get yourself organized.
