I remember starting school every year… I was so excited to get all these new school supplies.. and start fresh. Every year I made a vow that I would be the MOST ORGANIZED student EVER!!!
And every year that lasted about 2 weeks. Then I would open my book bag to a complete mess.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again I AM NOT an organized person. I have to work really hard at creating systems and methods to keep my anxiety at bay. I am constantly trying to come up with ways to help organize my life so that I can share with you how to organize your life!
So as I was saying I was not born an organizer. I have always had to work really really hard at it. Along the way I have finally figured out a few things that I have to have to accomplish tasks in life and to stay organized.
Many of you know I design websites.. in fact I was able to leave my job to work at home full time last year. Things have been awesome since I made that choice however being your own boss calls for major responsibility. I have to have systems in place so that I am completing tasks and staying on schedule. My number one way to get things done is this amazing tool … my to do list. As techy as I am this tool is not… at all. I am totally old school when it comes to my to-do lists and my calendar.
And speaking of calendars the second tool I have in my toolbox of organization is my printable calendar. I know so many people love the online calendars but again I need it on paper. There’s just something about filling those pages up with a pencil or pen and having it right there without needing to turn on a device. I’m totally ok with not being high tech with EVERYTHING!
Love this get the matching to-do list printable here! This is the number one way I get things done… well that and the free calendar printable of course!
