How to Change Careers Successfully: The First 7 Steps
- Feb 4, 2015
How Being Organised Can Change Your Career
Being organised can be really enjoyable—it’s all about the satisfaction of getting everything done. I take time at the beginning of each day to prioritise my tasks and place them in order, deciding how long each one will take and then scheduling them into my day. I also schedule in rewards for completing tasks on time—like a 15-minute break to read Who What Wear!
Anytime you’re notified of an important date, put it in your calendar—you can’t rely on your memory. Keep a daily schedule—even putting in household tasks can help. This way you can gain a better idea of how long tasks truly take and never find yourself running out of time at the end of the day.
Delete anything that’s no longer useful. Keeping useless files on your desktop or emails in your inbox will eventually prevent you from finding essential files and messages quickly. It’s very counterproductive. Declutter regularly instead of having to do it all in one huge, time-consuming effort.
There’s no bigger argument for being organised than in the interest of stress reduction. Once I steadily mastered the ability to become more and more organised, I also became better at writing and thinking creatively. I started to enjoy my work so much more.
I get a lot of ideas by just getting outside and walking around. Sometimes your focus needs a break and a change of scenery is always beneficial! I can never sit down and just focus on a single task for hours and hours—I’d rather break it up. Work should be enjoyable, so it’s important to regularly change things up so you don’t lose inspiration.
Procrastination is a constant battle for me. I write Post-it notes on my computer about maintaining focus and then allocate particular times to just surf the net and generally achieve nothing, but it’s about picking and choosing the times to do so.
