How Being On Time And Being Organized Can Help You Succeed
There are lots of different dynamics that come into play when it comes to being successful. Today, let’s focus on two of them (being organized and being on time) that can make a huge difference in your day-to-day life.
Think back on some of the most successful people you’ve met in your own life.
The chances are they were good at both of these – organized and on time.
There’s a reason why both of these factors will make such a big difference when it comes to being successful.
Why Be On Time and Organized
Some people find getting organized to be a scary or unpleasant task that will “never get done,” and “doesn’t really matter.”
These people don’t understand why being organized is important.
Unfortunately, this mindset leaves people with messy, cluttered houses, and an undue amount of stress!
If instead, we thought about being organized as an important, valued character trait, such as being responsible, loyal, or honest, our lives could be so different, less busy, and definitely less stressful!
The Best Possible Use of your Time and Energy
Both being on time and organized can help you make the best possible use of your time and energy.
When referring to energy, we’re talking about both mental and physical energy.
Every one of us has a limited supply of both, and we all have the same 24 hours on a given day.
In other words, both time and energy are limited resources.
What being on time and staying organized helps with is making the most of those resources and focusing them on tasks and activities that help us reach the goals that define success.
There are two different ways in which being both on time and organized will help you succeed.
Let’s look at both of them and then briefly discuss how to get better at them.
Being On Time And Being Organized Saves You Time
How much time have you wasted this week looking for a misplaced item or file? How about your car keys?
How much time have you wasted because you didn’t show up on time for an appointment and ended up having to wait?
Making an effort to be on time and staying organized helps you save precious time and energy.
Being on time is all about time management and awareness.
Your work will always stretch out into however much time you give it.
It’s pretty amazing how that works! 🙂
Becoming more aware and better at time management will help you work more efficiently.
The same is true for being well organized.
Being Organized and On Time Helps You Look Professional
Showing up late for an appointment or interview makes you look bad.
So does not being prepared or having to dig around for a few minutes to find something needed.
This is particularly true when it comes to first impressions.
Work on getting better at both, so you get the chances you deserve, and people see you as the respected person or expert in your field that you are.
How To Get Better At Both
You now know why it’s important to work on getting organized and being on time.
Whether being organized comes naturally to you or it’s a little more work to get into that frame of mind, it’s important to remember that anyone can be organized.
Like everything else, it’s a skill that can be learned and used as a strategy for success.
So, let’s look at how we can improve both those skills.
What it really comes down to is getting into the habit of being conscious of time and staying on top of the tasks you need to take care of.
Yes, if you’re exceptionally disorganized, it will take some up-front work to clear things up.
And once you’ve got that done, you have to make an effort day in and day out to put things back in their place and stay organized.
That is true for physical items, digital items, and even thoughts and ideas.
The short answer then is to practice both being on time and staying organized on a daily basis until they become habits.
My favorite benefits of being organized are reducing stress and becoming more productive and efficient!!
I ALWAYS seem to have too much to do… So if there’s any way to eliminate some of the ‘unnecessary’ steps I take throughout the day and save a little time and energy- I’m ALL ABOUT IT!!!
