Better Organized – The Way You Spend Your Time
Your daily routine is out of balance and you need to make adjustments or in other words getting better organized, if you are simply too tired or do not have sufficient time to do anything in the evenings.
â€œYou can find pictures anywhere. It is simply a matter of noticing things and organizing them. You just have to care about what is around you and have a concern with humanity and the human comedy.â€ -Elliott Erwitt
You may not be making optimum use of your hours during your day or evening, or your work can be too difficult or unsuitable. A good balance of your time is needed for work, goals, relaxation and recreation.
Take a close look at your daily routine, examine your findings and come up with a strategy. Be prepared to follow your strategy and with this, you can become better organized.
Importance Of Being To Be Better Organized
Optimum Usage Of Time
As you will not be thinking of two different things at one time when you are busy, your mind will be off the worry. You can make optimum use of your time away from work to enhance your knowledge of things and life, to work at a hobby or project, and then to relax and be happy.
This is good balance and you are better organized, when you are better balanced. Perhaps you are a single parent and in a bit of a time crunch each day. Make a point to sit and relax each day and strategy. You should be able to find just a few hours each day to apply yourself to being better organized, if you are careful.
“I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by conscious endeavor.” – Henry Thoreau (1817-1862)
Optimum Usage Of Our True Capacities
Most of us do not take the optimum usage of our true capabilities. Thus, we can all do much more. You can learn new things. This will give you new reason in life and a feeling of accomplishment.
Read nonfiction books to enhance your knowledge of everyday things in life and to improve on existing ones or to learn new skills. All of this will help you to be better organized.
You Will Have More Time
You will have more time when you are more organized. As you become better organized, take on a new after hours project. Start with something small and work your way up to dedicating more and more time to your project.
For instance, you can take on a new woodworking project. You will feel good about yourself and how you are spending your new, organized time as soon as you complete it.
You are freed up in body and mind to take on new endeavors, with a place for everything and everything in its place.
You must need more passive and relaxing undertaking, at least to start with, if you are under a lot of stress. Set aside time for your own unique enjoyment, for just one day a week, or a few hours on certain days.
When you do this, staying organized will not feel as much of a chore. In order to have more time for yourself, you will naturally wish to remain organized.
“When I go into my garden with a spade, and dig a bed, I feel such an exhilaration and health that I discover that I have been defrauding myself all this time in letting others do for me what I should have done with my own hands.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882).
Listen to lovely music, take a walk in the park, leisurely work in the yard, or watch a bit of TV, read an interesting novel, these are all of the perks in time from staying organized.
