Organisation is the key to any well-oiled business, whether it’s a huge multi-million dollar business or if it’s your family, you must have good strict schedules, manage your time well and be constructive with your tasks. This isn’t always the easiest of tasks. Life can easily get in the way and we can feel as if we are rushed off our feet with little or no time left in the day, especially if we have children. So what exactly can we do to start feeling more managerial in our lives in terms of our business and in our private lives? There are plenty of ways to organise your days, a diary, of course, is the best start but keeping that routine will take a little bit of time and quite a bit more effort.
Business & Corporate Management
If you work in an office environment and you feel you are misusing your time, then the most important thing is to ensure you have a good working calendar. Paper diaries are great but having it on your computer means you can highlight specific events, set reminders and see your month easier. If you run the office, and you feel you’re lacking within how you are managing your staff, you could always look at mba in management and if it is that you are struggling to find the time, then you may need to start delegating tasks among your co-workers. Make use of your lunch breaks, and any other breaks by ensuring you’re on task. Keep on top of your filing, keep your desk neat, these all may sound simple but they can really make a huge difference to your productivity. Tidy desk, tidy mind!
Home Life & Social
If you have a million and one things to do at home, the best way is to start making lists. There are plenty of diaries and notebooks you can buy specifically designed to help you make lists. Prioritise what needs to be done first and tick off the things as you go. It feels incredibly empowering. Start to look into hiring some help if this is something you need, such as hiring a nanny, getting someone to come into clean once a week, hiring an assistant, physical or virtual assistant, there are plenty of younger people who would like to broaden their skills and will work for a smaller fee or even for free to gain some experience. Look into getting a better routine; go to bed at the same time, get up at the same time, and start to get your body into a swing so it feels ready to accomplish all the tasks. It may sound silly but it is very important.
So, there are plenty of ways to get a little more managerial this year with your life, there is certainly no reason to give up, start making your lists, get into a routine and above all, make sure you take time to get a little fresh air and enough rest!
