Why Organization Matters
According to Miles Everson, CEO of MBO Partners, there are many reasons why being organized is important. These include:
- Time Management: Being organized allows you to manage your time more effectively. When you have a clear idea of what needs to be done and when, you can prioritize your tasks and work more efficiently.
- Reduced Stress and Improved Health: When you’re disorganized, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed and stressed out. On the other hand, being organized gives you a sense of control over your workload, which can then lessen your stress and anxiety, and boost your overall well-being.
- Increased Productivity: When you’re organized, you can work more efficiently and get more tasks done in less time. This can help you be more productive and achieve success in both your work life and personal life.
Let’s dive deeper into this topic. As someone who’s been leading and managing various teams in the business and consulting industry for many years now, Everson says he has seen how having such a skill is helpful for any individual professional in the long run.
He can also attest to the amazing benefits of being organized at work, such as:
- Meeting Deadlines: When you’re organized, you better manage your workload and meet deadlines more effectively. This makes you more reliable in the eyes of your colleagues and supervisors.
- Better Communication: Being organized helps you communicate better in the workplace. When you have a clear idea of what needs to be done and when, you can provide that information more clearly to your team and avoid misunderstandings.
- Career Advancement: Being organized can help you stand out at work and boost your career. Think about this: When you’re reliable and efficient, your supervisors and colleagues will more likely recognize your skills and potential.
- Improved Focus: When you’re organized, you can focus better on the task at hand, making you more productive and able to produce high quality outputs.
Everson adds it’s also important to note that being organized is not only necessary at work but also in one’s personal life. In his experience, having a clear work structure and timeline, and knowing his priorities help him strike a balance between his roles and responsibilities in the workplace and at home.
Here are Everson’s top 3 reasons:
- Clearer Priorities: Keeping his schedule organized lets Everson better manage his time and prioritize his personal commitments. This helps him achieve a better work life and personal life balance.
- Improved Relationships: Being organized enables him to handle his personal relationships more effectively. Spending quality time with his family and friends helps him earn their trust and respect.
- Reduced Clutter: Keeping his things organized reduces the clutter that easily affects his mood throughout the day. This also lets him create a more peaceful and relaxing environment at home and at work.
See the benefits of having an organized lifestyle? There are still lots of things Everson can add to the list but he states listing all of them down will result in a looooong article for today’s issue.
Anyway, we hope you find the key points mentioned above helpful in kickstarting an organized schedule and environment if you haven’t yet!
For those of you who are not naturally organized, don’t worry. Everson says it’s a skill you can learn with the help of some tips and tricks.
Remember: Being organized is not always easy, but it is essential for managing your time effectively, reducing your stress, increasing your productivity, improving your health, and achieving your goals.
