Have you ever convinced yourself that you can’t start an organizing project, or any type of project because you wouldn’t be able to finish it. Do you tell yourself that it’s not worth starting if you can’t finish. This is an all or nothing attitude. The idea that we have to do the whole project gets in the way of us starting the project. Here are 5 easy steps to help jump-start any project.
- Write down what the very first step of the project is.
- Pick a day and time to start and put it on your calendar.
- Gather all the materials you’ll need.
- On project day, set a timer for 30 minutes and work on completing step one of your project.
- Repeat the process. You may need more time for step one, or you may be ready to move on to step 2,3,4… either way, you’ll be making progress.
What’s new in 2022? I hope this year is off to a great start for you! Are you making plans and initiating changes?
Planning and prioritizing is a great way to organize yourself. A bit of planning goes a long way to improve your workday and time at home.
When do you feel the most energized and awake? Is it in the morning, afternoon, or evening? That answer is when you’ll conjure the most organizing spirit, so use that time to plan your most difficult organizing tasks. Match your tasks to your energy level. By doing this your likelihood of success increases.
Make time in your schedule for 2020 calendar preparations. Use this time to mark special dates, write monthly bill reminders, and note meetings. Birthdays and anniversaries are the first thing I jot down on a new calendar, then work meetings, appointments, events, monthly bills, and tax payments. I also add reminders for events that require preparation. For example if I’m giving a class I give myself a one week and two week event reminder. I find this very helpful in keeping me organized and prepared.
