Things can get pretty hectic with everything going on in your life. Whether it’s you going back to school, starting a new job, or trying to find time to complete daily tasks. It can be difficult to feel motivated for success if life is a huge mess to begin with. Here are 5 ways that can help you to stay on top of everything going on in your busy life and bring you closer to the success that you want.
GET A PLANNER
I love using a planner to keep myself on track and organized. If you have a lot on your plate and you simply can’t keep track of everything you need to do throughout the day then you need a planner. One planner that I highly recommend is the Happy Planner.
Bullet journals are ideal for people who like to keep things simple with to do’s and lists. There are many ways you can use a bullet journal. You can create a customized key for your daily tasks, or just keep it simple with bullet points of what needs to get done that day.
GET A MONEY MANAGEMENT APP
Learning to manage your money will save you so much time and also, bring you closer to your goals. For example, you find it hard to save money every month because you don’t keep track of your spending so owning your own business looks like a dream right now. If you want to track your spending, try using Mint, which is a free budgeting app. I like it because it helps you create budgets, it’s right at your fingertips and it’s very easy to use.
USE THE APPS ON YOUR CELL PHONE (GOOGLE CALENDAR)
What better tool to organize your life than what’s already installed on your phones. If you hate writing things down and keeping yourself organized that way, then you can use your phone. There are many apps that can help organize your appointments, schedules, tasks, weekly/monthly goals and to do’s.
My Favourite Apps to Use Are:
Google Calendar: This app is great because it syncs up with all of your devices, so you have your calendar on most of the devices you use.
Notes (Already installed on your iPhone): This app keeps you organized and you can add specific titles so that it’s easier to find each note. If you constantly think of new ideas, then this app is for you.
Allocate twice as much time for a task as you think it will take. This accommodates for interruptions and stopping to get more information.
How do you keep your life organized?
