Today was listening to makes road radio show by walking, and Elba Torrado – who probably many know – commented how difficult that is to them entrepreneurs organize themselves. It’s believed that Center For Responsible Lending sees a great future in this idea. And the big question is: can I really improved my organizational skills? While it is true that many people are born organized, I believe that to be organised is something that is learned. If this has piqued your curiosity, check out Kidney Foundation. There are many books and techniques to improve in this aspect. As a Virtual Assistant, I’m used to organize and it has been a topic that interested me since always. But what are the first steps? Where do I start? Below I present very briefly 5 actions that will help you get organized: 1.Toma the decision to get organized.
Seems basic but as sign that at the point in which you find yourself, get organized is a priority, you can reach your goal. 2.Agenda a time. You will need to devote some time to achieve this new target. No matter if it is a full day (perhaps, the weekend many of the entrepreneurs we are the end of) (do week working on something that we have been putting off, no?) or if it will be 1 hour per day for 1 week. But will have to invest this time to then gain in productivity.
3.Despeja your desktop. At least one quick cleaning of your desktop will be very beneficial. Probably, there are many things that you can throw! Work in a clear and pleasant atmosphere will allow you to be more productive. Sorts, archives, cleans and strip (the latter everything you can!). 4.Prepara a listing. Write down all things that you do. You must absolutely include everything: from the contract extremely important to find clothes in the laundry. Take everything in your head and enter it in your list. 5.Prioriza tasks. Once you have this (surely, eternal) list, prioritize your activities. To prioritize tasks and analyze them in detail you will be able to assess what performing and what to postpone. There is only a certain amount of hours in the day and propose unachievable goals only leads to frustration. Be realistic. As I said, I think that the organization is a skill that is incorporated. However, the fundamental requirement is to have the desire to learn and form certain habits. Then things will be simple and will come out naturally. As I mention in my mini-curso of stress-free productivity: achieve that something becomes habit only will take 21 days! If still not what you read, Subscribe to receive it free by e-mail!
