This month at Franklin Planner, we’re celebrating Organized October. This is an event that encourages everyone to organize their lives and start good habits that will carry them through the rest of the year, and continue into the next.
Organization helps lead you to success throughout your life. It means so much more than well-kept shelves, labeled folders, and zero clutter. Being organized means taking control of your life and knowing the what, where, why, and when of every situation.
The less organized you are, the more time you spend hunting and searching for things in frustration, which can lead to stress. Many people turn to yoga, meditation or therapy as a way to decrease their stress levels, but if you’re not organized these methods likely aren’t addressing the root of the problem. The best way to break free of the cycle is by learning to use tools that can help keep you organized, increase productivity, and decrease your stress levels. Then yoga and meditation have a chance to work.
There is a lot to prepare for in the next few months. Halloween costumes, Thanksgiving food assignments, Christmas presents, and so much more. Getting your everyday life organized now will help you feel more prepared for these big events and create good habits before the new year. Whether being organized comes naturally to you or it takes you more work to get into that frame of mind, it’s important to remember that anyone can be organized. It’s not something that requires skill, but instead requires effort to learn and implement into every aspect of life.
Over the next few weeks, we’ll help you dive into organization and planning, providing steps you can work on each week. In the meantime, you can get a head start by watching our training videos on our website. Your Franklin Planner encourages you to anchor your daily actions to the people, ideals, and values you hold dear without drifting into areas that waste your time and energy. When you’ve organized and planned well, you’re in a position to make better decisions. Organizing and planning helps you get your work done accurately, avoid costly mistakes, be more efficient, productive, and achieve important goals and objectives.
