It's a simple thing, we all have a list of jobs we need to get done each day , or by a certain deadline and nobody is really so busy that they simply can't get things done, we're just not very good at organising ourselves.
Being organised to get the jobs we need to get done each day simply requires that we get ourselves into the habit of being organised and focussed on the job in hand, rather than trying to multi-task and do loads of different jobs all at once.
Working this way requires a little bit of planning, but once you get into the habit of making lists of the jobs you need to complete in a day the night before and making sure you have everything you need on hand as soon as you get to your office or workspace, it becomes much easier.
So here are my three top tips for getting the job done.
Make a list of all the jobs you need to do. Break each big job down into little jobs, so they're more manageable. Prioritise the jobs and work through them one by one. If you need some inspiration for prioritising and planning take a look at this book, (don't spend ages reading the book and not doing the jobs though, that'll defeat the object).
DON'T turn on your computer unless you REALLY have to. Turn your computer OFF every night and think really carefully about whether you actually need to turn it on first thing every morning. I know you might want to turn it on, but that's just habit. If you don't actually need your computer to do the job you're tackling first then train yourself to just turn it on when you need it!
If you HAVE to turn your computer on, don't look at your social media platforms or your emails until you've FINISHED the in hand. Let's face it, the world isn't going to end if you don't engage with your social media platforms for a few extra hours and if people REALLY needed to get hold of you they'd telephone rather than emailing!
If the job in hand is just straightforward typing, then just open up you word processor, if you need to check something on the internet open up your browser, do your checking and close it straight back down until you need it again.
