Quick Organizing Tips From Assistance For You

Keeping on task and getting organized starts with a basic plan that can be implemented into everyone's daily life. Just by following these simple steps you can be on your way to a more productive and friendly work environment. Below are some quick tips to get you started on the right track towards self improvement and a better work style.

Organize Your Office
Keep all frequently used items within arms reach. Make your workspace work for you. You shouldn't have to work for space. Create a simple, yet friendly, filing system (tickler) that you will use everyday. File continuously. Don't stockpile stack of paper. always put things back where you intend on storing them for easy retrieval in the future.

Plan Your Day Everyday
Plan your tomorrow today and always stick to the plan. Keep a calendar or daily planner so you can pre-plan meetings, tasks and appointments. Use your calendar or daily planner to check off each task as they accomplished. Schedule blocks of time for specific tasks. Plan a "clean-up" day at least once a month.

Don't Procrastinate
Always address any task that can be done immediately first. Follow-up on tasks as needed on the day you specified. Get ahead of tasks when time permits and reward yourself for your diligence.

Reduce Paper
Keep a trash container handy. Throw away envelopes and junk mail immediately. Limit unnecessary subscriptions. Remove your name from mailing lists* Use e-mail and online resources as much as possible. Print only when needed. Incorporate the three "R" rule: Reduce, Recycle, Reuse when possible.

Get Support
Don't be afraid to ask for assistance. We all can use some help at times. Incorporate family and friends into your daily tasks. Utilize experienced outside support services such as Virtual Assistants. If you need help with business tasks, events, mailers or seasonal tasks, Virtual Assistants can lend a helping hand.
