With so much going on in our lives, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed with our schedules. If you’re a parent, you have to manage your children’s schedule as well as your own! It’s never fun to miss appointments or accidentally book two events at the same time, so staying organized is a great way to reduce stress and feel prepared. Closet & Storage Concepts of Charlotte, North Carolina is bringing you some helpful hints on how you can organize your schedule.
Get A Planner
We all think our mental planner is good enough to handle recording all of our plans…until we forget most of them. There’s nothing wrong with realizing that we can’t remember everything and need some help. Stop by a bookstore, office supply store, or anywhere that sells planners for step one. If pen and paper isn’t your thing, there are plenty of online schedule planners available for cell phones and computers. A nice thing about a virtual schedule is that you can sync it across your devices and even set reminders to alert you of upcoming events.
Having everything you need to do listed out will help you manage your time more efficiently. Some people find it helpful to use different colored pens or highlighters to mark their to-dos in order of importance. When you have all your tasks listed, it also helps to prevent you from putting yourself in positions where you feel overworked. You’ll be happy you didn’t sign yourself to volunteer the same day as your annual presentation to your boss.
Your schedule for the week is all written down, now what? Well, unfortunately, organizing your tasks won’t actually complete them, so you’ll need to take action to be able to check them off. However, having an organized schedule will help you to prepare for upcoming events, making them much more manageable. Instead of staying up late the night before you leave on a trip, trying to get everything in order, you can spread out what you need to do throughout the whole week.
