How to Stay Organized
Updated: Aug 21, 2022
Have a vision
Having a vision is crucial to achieving any goal. Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no vision the people perish…”
Your vision is a clear depiction of where you want to be and what you want to achieve. As we work on our daily, weekly and monthly tasks, having a vision keeps us focused, committed and motivated.
In a world that has so many distractions, a vision board can help us stay focused on the things that really matter. Our Purposely Organized planner has a designated space for the curation of a vision board.
Set (realistic) monthly goals
After defining and creating your vision, it’s important to break this down into measurable goals that are within reach. Consider your vision your long-term goals while your monthly goals are your short-term goals. This allows the journey to achieving your vision (or long-term goals) to feel less daunting and more achievable.
Write a daily/weekly task list
Do you remember that task you were supposed to do but you found yourself days later saying, “I forgot to do it”? Yup, that’s why a daily/weekly to-do list is not only important but an absolute necessity.
Your daily/weekly task list is a compilation of items you need to complete in order to achieve the monthly goals you outlined.
We cannot depend on our brains to remember all the tasks we need to complete. Having a task list not only helps you remember what needs to be done, it’s also a tool you can use to keep yourself accountable. Getting everything on your to-do list done gives an indication that your day was productive.
One game-changing thing I do is set out to do the hardest thing first. That way, you get to do the hardest task at the beginning of the day when you’re (usually) most alert and productive.
Organizing the different areas of your life is essential to not only live with purpose and efficiency on Earth, but to live with balance.
PRO-TIP: You can color coordinate the different areas of your life. This can help to keep your mind organized on the tasks at hand. You can easily change the pen color when using the Purposely Organized Vision planner.
