Being organized is not something inborn. It’s a habit that’s cultured through repetition of affirmative actions targeted to get your life in order. As long as you’re willing to learn and commit, what awaits you on the other side of discipline is a healthy body, mind, spirit, and physical environment. These rewards are what form the prerequisite of a successful and fulfilling life. Below are some tips on how to plan and give you’re a more organized 2021.
The first thing you need to do in your journey to a more successful year has to be visualization. You need to visualize and create a picture of the life you want and all the things you want to achieve throughout the whole year. As you visualize, remember not to restrict yourself and go as big as you want with belief in your potential to commit. At the same time, pay attention and ensure that what you want is Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely.
2.Write It Down
Research has shown that those who don’t write things down are more likely to veer off the road they initially intended to go down in order to achieve their goals. Writing things down helps you remember things and stay organized all through the year. It also services an individual in that you have a drawing board where you can always go back and review your initial goals and intentions in case you start slipping. Using a pen and notebook, meticulously note down all the things you want to do/achieve together with exactly how you plan to achieve them.
3. Create a Timeline
Creating a timeline as you make schedules and deadlines is also another way to ensure your year stays organized. Time is money and the most effective people value their time the most. Wasting time can be easily avoided by creating an accurate and specific deadline for every task that you initially jotted down in your notebook. When making a schedule, you should plan down to every day and hour. Another thing to consider when making deadlines is that you should give priority to what matters more to you. Pay more attention to the goals that push you further in your career and your academics.
Decluttering every single thing in your life creates space and room to get things done. Starting from your physical space, down to all your goals, you need to break down everything into tiny manageable tasks. This reduces the bulk and strain that achieving your goals would otherwise put on you. You need to create time at frequent intervals where you reorganize your schedule continuously and consistently.
5.Out with the Old, In with the New.
Every once in a while, you need to assess the patterns and strategies that you had initially put in place. After a while, you should be able to clearly distinguish between what works and what doesn’t work for you based on the results that you achieve. After the assessment, you should only keep what you need and what works. As an organized person, you can’t expect to do the same things that aren’t productive and get different results. Be sure to also do some research and read on techniques that have been used by successful people in the respective field.
6.Build a system based on Priority
As individuals, we thrive when we are wholesome. There are 7 dimensions of Wellness: Physical, Emotional, Intellectual, Social, Spiritual, Environmental, and Occupational. When we fully develop and nurture all 7 aspects that is when we become wholesome and organized. As we list down our goals and create timelines for them, we should prioritize the dimension of wellness that mean more to us. We should also listen to our natural inclinations as we thoughtfully create routines that work best for us. If there are some tasks you perform better in the morning, for instance, schedule all those tasks for that time. One should also create a balance between everything with priority given to what matters to most.
7.Cleanliness and Wellness
Good Health is one of the prerequisites for a more organized year. Other than that, a clean environment creates room for a healthy clean mind that is also required for order in one’s life. Having a clean space where you can get your work done has been shown by various studies to produce better results in all aspects of life. Remember to always keep only what you need in your workspace. You also need to store everything around you properly and have easy access to them when you need them. Physical wellness and activity boost your energy levels, promotes rest, and also increases the circulation of endorphins.
Measuring your progress is the best way to keep track of your goals throughout the year. Have a frequent review schedule where you assess and reflect on your objectives and results. With the results obtained, replace what doesn’t work and keep what works. Actively reflect to actively progress.
9.Consistency and Discipline
Daily consistency and dedication have always been one hundred times more efficient than once in a while bout of hard work. Having a successful and organized year is almost entirely based on how disciplined you can get and how consistent you are willing to be in order to achieve your goals. Small consistent progress when accumulated and assessed over time usually creates such a huge impact. Every day you need to create standards for yourself that are slightly higher than the standards you had the day before. Success only comes from sustained effort.
Working constantly throughout the year will not yield results but instead lead to what is referred to as burnout and depletion of your energy. You need to prioritize rest because that is when your body gets to relax, repair, rejuvenate and recover. Sleep is crucial in learning and memory as well as creativity and innovation. When you lack sleep and rest, your ability to concentrate and make proper judgments is highly impaired. Sleep is also necessary for a healthy body and as we’ve seen a healthy body directly correlates to progress.

First I was born. Then I discovered how much happiness a splash and slip through the water can give so by the time I was 8, I had already fallen in love with swimming. At sixteen, I ascertained that exploring and caring for the human body was pretty interesting and I thought to myself why not become a Doctor. I casually sauntered through the following years and at 21, came across “The Office”: a show so hilarious I’d ache from laughter. Wine also became a little too sweet and vacations severely alluring. I’m currently 23 and all I can think about is taking a stroll through the gorgeous streets in Rome as I soak up the atmosphere and admire the elegance.
