Getting Organised for 2015- It’s never too late

So here’s a post that differs slightly from what I usually put up on here. I feel inclined to write on this issue simply because I think it’s the difference between using your time effectively and wittering away the days and weeks on the unnecessary.

We are all increasingly busy these days, when work, and other activities take up large parts of our day it can be difficult to slot in all the other things that we need to do.

For me, I find that making lists of what I need to do helps me A LOT! And I’m talking about even the most trivial of things including responding to text messages, calling people back, remembering to pick up toiletries, washing your hair etc. you get my drift ๐Ÿ™‚ Noting these things down take minutes but can really help you make the most of your day.

Where and how you make these notes is entirely up to you and should compliment the way in which you like to do things. I prefer having a diary that has an integrated calender. Good quality stockists are Moleskine and Paperchase.

You can of course use the calender facility on your phone or your notes page (if you’re an iPhone user). Sticking to the list does take some discipline, if this method is new to you, and may be difficult to adhere to initially but with time will become a habit.

I encourage you to try this method of organising your day, week and month in this way and see what different it makes to your productivity…you will be pleasantly surprised ๐Ÿ™‚

I’d love to hear how you get on…

Have a lovely weekend xx

  1. Hi Claudia, great piece!!

    This is actually a great way of organising and planning one’s activities. I certainly can vouch for it’s success rate as I do all you have suggested quite regularly. I find writing up a to-do list a non-negotiable task we should all adhere to. Whilst I am not granular to make it include the most simplest of tasks, I still make sure it’s quite thorough. Sometimes, doing this could be the difference between being early to file a tax return and having to pay a fine for not doing so.

    It’s simple, you fail to plan, you plan to fail. I must admit albeit shyly that i do get some excitement just from crossing out a completed task on my to do list. And this spurs me on to tackle the next one head-on.

    A tip I will add for your readers is, make the notes easily accessible so you are constantly reminded there is work is do! Great piece, once again. ๐Ÿ˜Š

      1. I am sure there are a few other list-writers out there. Let’s spread the gospel! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I will come back to digest more of your posts, if you throw in a few of these every now and again. โ˜บ

        I started a blog last month, still early days, but kindly follow and share your thoughts on any posts which interest you when you get the chance, Claudia. I promise to keep it interesting. ๐Ÿ˜† It’s jantwikusi.wordpress.com. Happy bank holiday weekend.
