Yes, you too can get organized by incorporating this concept into your daily activities. I understand you have a lot going on and this may not be as easy as it sounds, but it really is that easy. Adjusting your mindset may take a little getting use to, but it is possible.
The key here is to be mindful in your daily activities. Notice when things are not where they belong and stop what you’re doing to put things back in their homes. It gets a little trickier if you don’t have homes for everything, but it is doable.
When you find the missing item you’re looking for, stop and assign it a home if it doesn’t already have one. If it does have an assigned home, put it back where it belongs after use. This should only take a minute and will save time in the long run. This quick tip is easy to incorporate in to your daily activities.
When you notice a kitchen drawer that’s overflowing, stop, take everything out and wipe out the inside. Then, purge trash, and there will be trash, take my word for it. Put the ‘keepers’ back where they belong, which may not be in this drawer.
Now I know what you’re thinking, I can’t stop what I’m doing every time I notice something is out of place, I’m on a tight schedule. I get it, we are all busy but the idea is to get used to putting things away, or assigning homes as you go through your daily activities.
This concept can be easily incorporated in to your cleaning regimen as well. Most people have some sort of routine for cleaning their homes. As you are going through your routine, and find things that don’t belong where they are, put them back in their homes, or as mentioned above, assign them a home.
Adding a few extra tasks to incorporate organizing in to your daily activities, will not only save time, but also increase your productivity. By getting and staying organized you will find that you have more time to do the things you want to do.
