Organizing Ideas and Tips

New Year's Goal Setting

The New Year is a popular time to make resolutions.  But how many of us have started off with gusto only to completely drop the practice after a month or two?  For some of us even a week is the most we can stay on track.
I propose that we don't make any New Year's resolutions this year.  Instead, make a plan, write it down, and schedule it.  Then develop the habits you need to stick with it.
What are the things you want to change in your life this year?  Here are some common goals related to organizing:
Time management: 
  • Don't be late
  • Have more time for family
  • Schedule self care time (gym, running, walking, spa, etc...)
  • Don't wait until the last minute
  • Complete projects on time
  • Prioritize
  • Pay bills on time
  • Go paperless
  • Organize
  • Simplify
  • Minimize
And so many more...

Now, instead of just stating your goal, I want you to really come up with a plan for how you are going to achieve this goal.  “Make a plan, write it down, and schedule it.”
For example, if your goal is to pay your bills on time in 2015, then think about how you can accomplish this.  Do you need to write down all your bills and due dates and put them on your calendar or task list?  Or can you set most of your bills for automatic payment or set up bill pay through your bank and schedule a date every month to make the payments?  Or what if you had a basket where all your bills go when they arrive, and you schedule 2 days each month to clear that basket?  Or what other method could work for you?

Now write down your plan, and attach dates to each step.  Put these dates on your calendar or on your task list.
Now we have just turned your New Year's resolutions into actual goals with a plan for completion.  Have a productive and happy 2015!
Happy New Year!
Happy New Year!
