Your Plan of Action

Get Everyone on the Same Page

One of the first things to do when you decide to get more organized is to get everyone on the same page. Whether it’s your family, your work colleagues, or others that you deal with on a daily basis, you can ensure that everyone works together to create more organization.

At home, one of your first steps could be to set up a family Calendar. One way to go is with Google Calendar.  Google Calendars are wonderful because everyone can have it synced to their mobile devices, and you can even set up reminders that are emailed or pop up. That way it’s harder to forget to do something that is scheduled.


At work and within the community, you’ll have to implement changes more slowly, and likely you’ll have to learn to say the word “no” more often. But, given enough time, you’ll be able to get everyone together to become more organized, and stay that way. It just takes some perseverance and patience.

Next, it’s important to further develop your plan of action so that you can truly see it through. In this way you can stay organized, avoid distractions, and get more done.

Craft a Plan of Action

To great the best plan of action, you have to start someplace. And the best place to start is with areas of your life that are already structured, such as work, school, organized sports and truly anything that already has a schedule set around it. Put the things that have set schedules in your calendar first. This will enable you to see the truth about the time you have available for more things to do.

Then, add in your home life around those things. For example, if you know you have to leave the house at precisely 7:30 a.m. to be in your desk at work by 8 a.m. that will dictate when you need to shower, groom, eat breakfast and clean up after yourself.

While you don’t have to put every last thing in your calendar forever, it’s a good idea to try to do it for at least a month. In this way, you know how long it really takes you to do things such as clean your kitchen, pay your bills, and get ready for work. Including these things in your timeline will help you realize how much time you really have and how much time you don’t have next time someone wants you to add something to your day.
