Dispelling the Top 7 Myths About Being Organized

Seat in the Park

There are lots of myths going around when it comes to getting and staying organized.
Here are the top 7, along with the truths.

While you can certainly be neat AND be organized, the two terms should never be confused with each other. While you might have NEAT piles, or NEAT boxes piled one on top of the other, or objects lined up NEATLY in a straight line, you may still not be able to find a single thing when you need it. Being organized means you’re using a structured system that allows you to find everything you need when you need it, and you get everything done when it’s due–without frustration, chaos or stress.

Once again, while you can be BOTH organized AND clean, those terms should not be confused. Cleaning means that you’re removing dirt, grime and otherwise preparing a sanitary surface. But, you can have the cleanest home or office on the block, and still be disorganized.

10 Tips for Increasing Your Effectiveness (No Matter What You’re Trying to Do)

No matter how big our dreams, our time and resources are limited. Moving forward effectively is key. Once you’ve committed to accomplishing something and putting in the effort, you’ll want to get the biggest return on your investment that you can, in the most efficient way. Here are ten of my best tips for increasing your effectiveness and achieving your goals–whatever they may be.

1.Be clear on your final outcome

This may sound obvious, but it’s surprisingly easy to skip this step. Be as clear as you can about what it is that you are working to accomplish. Be sure you know exactly what success will look like and how you will know when you get there. Being “more” of something is not a clear goal–no matter what you’re trying to be more of (more healthy, more patient, more relaxed, more productive . . .). Set a concrete measurable goal and you’ll know when you’ve arrived.

2.Create a timeline and set milestones along the way

Set a date for achieving your outcome. Schedule “milestones” for yourself. In other words, identify the dates that you plan to achieve specific steps towards your goal. This will help you stay on track and recognize the need to make adjustments (if you are having difficulty achieving the milestones you have identified) as you go along.
