Learn To Be Organised and Live a Life Free of Procrastination

Self Reflection Friday #2

Learn To Be Organised and Live a Life Free of ProcrastinationI learn to be organised because it enables me to live an ordered life, that in turn helps me to accomplish my goals and objectives. I also know that it enables me to be productive as I’m in control of the things that will help me achieve my goals and objectives.

Being productive is important to me because I want to live an active and purposeful life and when I reach my goals, I feel proud of myself.

In order to be productive in my life, I must learn to be organised. It is important for me to find ways to organise my desk, to remove paper clutter from my life, and to arrange my home into a peaceful environment. I do not put off tackling chores because I know that my neatness will make completing any given task easier.

As I learn to be organised I start to manage my time wisely. I stay on track by using calendars to mark important dates and meetings, writing schedules in my planner, and setting deadlines for myself, are all ways of making sure I use my time wisely. Completing tasks is so much easier because I choose to manage my time effectively.

When I procrastinate, I feel frozen by inaction, but I can overcome this feeling. By keeping organised and using my time wisely, procrastination melts away.  Warmth spreads from my fingers to my toes.  All of that pent up energy is released and I am free to complete my projects.

It is such a relief to be organised. The systems I have in my life make my daily chores more manageable. I am able to classify projects and accomplish them in a sensible way.

Effectively using my time means I can get even more accomplished and by finishing my tasks, I am prepared for the excitement of a new challenge.

  1. I have become a huge procrastinator over the years. I’m never happy about it and when it comes time to tackle whatever it is that I have been pushing aside, the work I have to do is nearly unbearable. If I would have just taken care of it when it was first present, then my whole life would be easier. Staying organized is key for me. I don’t much care for surprises of any kind and so keeping my calendar in perfect order is key for me personally.

  2. I’ve noticed by reading your blog over the last few weeks, that I’ve recently fallen out of “productive” and into “busy”. Sure everything is still on my lists and whatnot, but I’m not PRODUCTIVE. As you know, there is a huge difference.

    I’d like to thank you for your concise and informative blogs. I think between you and another I read today, I’m going to have some serious refocusing and work to do. Once the problem is identified, it’s time to correct it.
