Organizational Tips For Busy Bosses
Staying organized as your business continues to grow is no easy feat but there are always ways around it to make it work with your busy schedule. Here are 5 simple ways to keep yourself organized while making sure your business continues to operate smoothly and efficiently.
Dedicate A Few Minutes A Day Just For Organization
We get it, finding extra time to do anything else may seem a little bit of a stretch especially if you’re already on a tight schedule. By putting in just 5 to 10 minutes a day to simply organize yourself for the next day. Cleaning out any messes on your desk will do wonders for you in the long run (and ensure you’re always working with a high level of motivation). Skip the overwhelm by preventing mess from accumulating on your desk and papers from piling up as the week progresses.
Group Things Together
Dedicate specific areas for certain things that are placed within the same category so they’re easier to grab in one go. Place all of your electrical devices in one place to turn it into a charging station or keep loose wires in a separate drawer. Put loose papers and notebooks together in a file holder, all books in one area of your shelf, and writing tools in a drawer or an area on your desk within their respective pen organizer. Keeping everything bundled will ensure you won’t ever have to worry about losing time trying to find what you need when you need it.
Use A Digital Planner
Never underestimate the power of having a routine already planned out for you the night before. There’s nothing better than starting the day knowing exactly what you already have to do or need to get accomplished before the end of the day. Cut the clutter and save the space by going digital when you can. Instead of using a physical planner, have it all scheduled instead within Google Calendar, iCal or any other calendar app with notifications every time to remind you when to switch tasks. Keep your life and your desk a little more organized with one simple switch.
Create An Office / Command Station
Having a ‘command station’ within your home just for work is a key factor in helping you as an entrepreneur stay organized. It’s perfectly fine to switch up the environment once every while but if you have a committed workspace with all your tools in one place, it will not only motivate and keep you inspired but also push you to be productive. Just think, you have your keyboard, mouse, phone stand, inspirational decor and desk organizers already all in front of you.
