Get organsied in 2022 with these 5 tips to free up your busy schedule
1. Set goals – and acknowledge them daily!
It’s always helpful having the end goal in mind! This may be anything from planning a day to take the kids to their favourite amusement park, working up to a special birthday lunch, committing to daily yoga or chipping away at a business goal. We recommend writing down your goals and putting them on display as a daily reminder of what’prioritizemportant. Always alPrioritizinge with the goals that matter most to you.
2. Learn how to prioritise more effectively
Prioritising the tasks on your schedule every evening before bed, or first thing in the morning, is an excellent way to set yourself up for success. It will help you manage your time and ensure you meet your deadlines. Be kind to yourself, don’t put yourself last and don’t be discouraged if you don’t tick everything off your list every day – small steps can lead to big gains!
“We need to do a better job of putting ourselves higher on our own ‘to do’ list,” Michelle Obama.
3. The gentle art of saying ‘No’
While saying no may not come naturally to many of us, it is a skill that should be developed if you want to ensure you are maximizing your potential while working within your limits. Overcommitting to work, social or family tasks adds pressure and stress which can adversely affect your personal health and wellbeing over time.
Consider every invitation in alignment with your personal goals – if it doesn’t align – decline!
4. Make delegation a habit
Knowing how to delegate effectively is an essential skill that everyone in any leadership position should possess, and this applied to your family as well as your workplace. Not only will delegation lighten your workload, it will also free up your time so that you can spend it on something that aligns with your goals or that you enjoy. Sit down with your family, your friends, your colleagues or employees and ask them to commit to some new tasks this year to help you out.
