“Change means movement. Movement means friction.”
It has been a good week. I am feeling that I am headed on the right trajectory with home and work. One thing that helps me immensely is when I am organized; my planner is up to date, my calendar is accurate, my email inbox is empty, and my finances are all caught up.
Organization makes me feel clear, focused, energetic – and free of distractions. It takes time to get myself and my affairs organized. I estimate that a good 25 percent of my week is spent maintaining order and clarity.
Here, I share a few ideas for helping to keep your business – and yourself – organized:
- Start with your desk/office – this builds momentum and visually empowers you.
- Ideal week: set blocks of time.
- Three to five minutes is a valuable chunk of time and you can get a lot accomplished; clear your desk, delete junk email, write a card, breathe and relax you mind.
- Have a system to help you – a planner, calendar, 3×5 cards. I use the Full Focus Planner
