Our world is developing and evolving quickly and today we live in a fast moving information age. The flow of information is moving so fast that at times it seems impossible to keep up. People are rushing around, our work load is usually overbooked, there are not enough hours in the day and everyone appears stressed.
Let’s face it in the real world some things we have no control over, but we do have control over how we manage these things either at home or at our place of work.
Benjamin Franklin once said “By failing to prepare, you are preparing to fail. ” By getting your life and work in order will help increase your sense of self-esteem, confidence, and pride. Better organisation will help you to reach your goals in life and in time help you become an extremely successful person. Without some form of organisational structure your life could become chaotic and your days could be full of stress.
Surely we all want to make our lives easier so it is advisable to take some time to get organized! The best way to do this is by using a day planner / personal organiser ( Terminplaner - hee hee i’m in the process of learning German). These are usually small (ish) portable folders / books which usually containing a diary, calendar, address book, and other sections which help you to organise your time and information. Digital day planners / personal organisers and online organisers are also available.
Day planners / personal organisers are the perfect tools to help people organise their busy schedule, keep track of upcoming events, and maintain a list of ongoing tasks they need to accomplish. Some day planners even contain useful other items such as maps, magnifying glasses, telephone codes and notepaper.
The most famous branded (and in my opinion the best on the market) day planners are those made by Filofax. The name Filofax has become synonymous with personal organisers and its brand name is now generally used to describe all types of personal organisers / day planners.
There are many advantages to getting yourself organised that include reduced stress, saving time, and working more efficiently. It is even economical to make sure you are organised. By taking the time to plan and organise your life or work, you’ll end up saving time and/or money. Generally for me I find that since I have used a day planner I can better manage my time (work and social) and prioritise all my daily tasks. In my mind things now seem to fall into place when working within deadlines and limits. I have managed to achieve more balance in my life.
Also I just want to finish by saying that by becoming more organised does not mean that all the spontaneity and fun of life goes away. In fact I have found that it actually increases my ability to accomplish more and enjoy my life to its fullest.
So go get organised and take one more step towards your goals.
