Are you looking to get an early start on those resolutions for the New Year? The truth is, there’s no better time than now to “get your life” and be more organized personally and professionally.
Here’s how to do it:
Create the vision, make it plain. Give yourself a timeframe (6 months, 1 year, 5 years) and write down the goals you want to achieve during that time. Be realistic yet challenge yourself. Position those goals in a place where you’ll see them everyday to keep yourself accountable.Are you resolved to getting organized for the New Year? Click To Tweet
Chunk it. Break those lofty, large-scale goals into smaller, bite-size, easier to digest chunks. It can be a bit disheartening to think about writing your memoirs, BUT if you give yourself a daily task of writing 500 words every day it won’t seem so unattainable.
Clean it up. Your workspace, that is. It’s nearly impossible to find inspiration when you’re surrounded by clutter, so set aside some time each week to tidy up. If you forgot you owned it or haven’t used it in a year you probably don’t need it.
Get it out of your head. If you’re one of those “always on” kind of people, falling asleep can be a little challenging with all of the ideas swirling around in your head. It’s a good idea to keep a notepad (or your phone) close by to capture those late night bursts of inspiration. Don’t think that you’ll remember it the next day! Life happens and paper is relatively inexpensive these days, use it…
Schedule it. If you don’t want to find yourself overwhelmed and buried under life again, make these steps a regular part of your routine to keep your momentum going. It takes 21 days of doing something before it becomes a habit, give yourself time to adjust your behavior and challenge yourself to be a better version of yourself, not just once, but on a regular basis.
These steps aren’t difficult to implement, all you need is the resolve to get it done…so let’s get it done!
