“I’m doing the best I can but I’m so disorganized and just not being productive.” This is a common complaint so many folks have who spend their days multitasking with jobs, family, friends, church, children, etc. It seems that people complain that they are putting out so much energy and time with everyday activities yet the return and gratification doesn’t measure up to this output. Clutter, disorganization, moving, downsizing, and constantly searching for things only adds to our stress and not accomplishing our goals that will organize and simplify our lives.
A few ways you can increase your productivity is put things where they belong the first time rather than touching the them several times. Prioritize what is most important and has to be done sooner rather than later. Focus on one task at a time. Manage your time efficiently whether you are enjoying free time or structured time. Formulate a plan for your home office including paying monthly bills, setting up a filing system, gathering tax information or getting your computer so it is user friendly and easy to retrieve information.
