If you are a disorganized person, you can also become organized if you are willing and ready. Organization is a habit that requires intentionality. Organizing oneself is a foundation of success in life. People who are organized are significantly more productive. Being organized helps you to focus on the tasks at hand and makes you accomplish them more quickly. It will enable you to easily stay on top of the situation and avoid unnecessary stress.

Below are the essential habits to stay organized:

Write things down


It is not everything you memorize you will be able to recall. You have a lot going through your mind, you might lose important information. Trying to remember things will not help you stay organized. Imagine having some tasks that urgent attention but didn't remember because you had a lot in mind and you didn't take notes of them. You then remembered while on another task. You will have to put your present task aside to attend to the urgent one. This is unlike organization. Writings will always serve as a reminder Writing things down is much more permanent. Imagine storing up shopping lists, important dates, and venues for various events in your head alone-that will further complicate your life. Try writing things down.

Make Schedules and Deadlines


Scheduling is the art of planning your activities to achieve your goals in the time you have available. Write out the goals you want to accomplish. Make a schedule on how you will achieve the goal. This will be a guide for you to follow. Also, set a deadline for when you will get the goal achieved and the task completed. Finally and most importantly, work towards it by sticking to them. This shows organization.

Don't Procrastinate


Organized people don't procrastinate. They follow plans. If a task is ought to be done for a specific time, they will do it then. Honestly, the longer you wait to get something done, the more difficult it will be to get done. Once you keep pushing tasks till later, things will get muddled up and it can be very disturbing. Procrastination is not associated with the Organization.

Have an Assigned Place for Each Item


Have areas where specific things are kept and will be found for access. It is easy to get things lost if you don't give a home to them. Group familiar items together in a place. Don't muddle up dissimilar items. Store things properly and give labels to the storage place. Don't ever label a storage place ' miscellaneous'- be specific, anything can fall under that category. Give your storage place proper placing and don't let it be cluttered.

Keep Only What You Need


Only keep items you need. Get rid of items you don't need. You only need to know and have the item that will be useful to meet your needs. Here's a task, write a list of all the things you own and the things you need. If what you own exceeds your needs list, it's time to organize As simple as the above may sound, that is where organizations start. It is possible to organize your life. It is just a habit you will develop yourself into. You only need to be willing and ready to replace bad habits with organizational habits. Gradually you will become a lot more organized.
