If you’re looking for ways to organise your life in 2020 but you’re unsure where to begin then don’t worry, you have definitely come to the right place. Whether you’re looking to start getting organised or you want to improve a few aspects of your life, being organised can improve your lifestyle in more ways than you think. From buying yourself a 2020 diary to setting yourself goals and targets, the more organised you are the better. With that in mind, here are 14 ways to be more organised in 2020:

 

– Consider Your Priorities 

One of the best things you can do when it comes to organising your life is to consider your priorities. Although you may think you can do all things at all times, in reality, that’s just not possible. There are so many different things that society says we should be doing but when you stop to take a look at it all, most of it isn’t important to you at all. The best thing to do in this situation is to take a look at all of the things you would like to do, prioritising them in number order. Once you’ve done this, you’ll clearly be able to see what is important to you and what isn’t.

 

– Buy Yourself A 2020 Diary And Make Sure You’re Using It

In terms of physical organisation, having a 2020 diary is one of the best ways to ensure you know what you’re supposed to be doing and when. Writing down all of your plans, engagements and appointments will not only help you to remember them but it will also give you the tools you need to avoid double bookings. If you’re unsure where you’re meant to be on any given date, checking your diary will reassure you. The only thing you need to ensure is that when you’re asked to be somewhere, you write it down immediately. If you forget to pop it in your diary, chances are you’re going to forget altogether.

– Plan Everything Well In Advance

When you’re thinking about your plans, you need to ensure you’re planning things as far in advance as you can. Although you may like to be spontaneous and live life on the edge, knowing what you’re going to be doing well in advance will help you to feel calm about the months ahead of you. If you’re forever making plans last minute, you’re always going to feel as though things are all over the place. Even if it’s just one or two dates a month, make sure you’re jotting them down with plenty of time to spare. 

 

– Set Yourself Some Goals And Targets

Another great way to have an incredible year when it comes to organisation is to set yourself some goals and targets for the year. Whether they’re career-based or personal,  having something to work towards is a great way to motivate yourself to be organised as no matter what the goal is, you’re going to need to plan exactly how you’re going to acheive it. 

When you’re thinking about your goals, it’s important you’re thinking about what steps you need to take each month in order to reach them by the end of the year. Writing these steps down individually will not only encourage you to work on them but it will also remind you what you’re working for when you feel as though you’re getting nowhere.

– Have A Big Clear Out At Home And Declutter

Another great way to organise your life in 2020 is to have a big clear out of your home. Although this may be something you already do regularly, it’s amazing what a little bit of decluttering can do to your mood. Whether this means getting rid of belongings you no longer want or taking the time to find things that could be donated to charity, the more you’re staying on top of your home life the more likely you are to stay on top of your professional and personal lives too. 

 

– Start A New Cleaning Schedule

Speaking of staying on top of your home life, you need to ensure you’re cleaning your house as often as you possibly can. The best way to do this, of course, it to start a new cleaning schedule that you’re going to stick to. Although it may take some time to put a cleaning schedule together, you’ll feel much better knowing what needs doing and when it needs to be done by. From doing the washing to hoovering upstairs, having a schedule will definitely help motivate you when you don’t want to focus on cleaning.

– Hire Someone To Help Clean The House

If you don’t want to create a cleaning schedule and have limited time to focus on your home, you may want to consider hiring someone to help you clean the house. Although it can be quite expensive, having a cleaner will help to free up your time to focus on some of your other goals for the year. Whether they come once a week or they’re cleaning your house every two days, you will be surprised at the difference they can make to your home. 

 

– Think About Your Career Prospects And Where You Want To Be

Although you may already think about this on a regular basis, it’s important you’re thinking about your career prospects and where you want to be by the end of 2020. Even if you’re planning for just the year ahead, knowing what you want out of your career is a great motivator when it comes to progression. If you’re also planning on moving into a new career, the sooner you start thinking about it the better. 

 

– Consider Way To Be Organised At Work

When it comes to work you need to ensure you’re being as organised as you can possibly be. Your career is an important part of your life and if you’re not taking control, you may find that things can start to suffer. Whether you’re looking to change careers or you simply want to get ahead where you are, the more organised you are the better chance you have of success. 

 

Some ways to organise yourself at work include:

  • Keep a diary so that you’re sticking to deadlines 
  • Attend team meetings and keep up to date with industry news
  • Have regular contact with the management team
  • Research jobs in your field and find out how you can progress
  • Stay on top of your day-to-day jobs

Although this is just a quick snapshot, it should give you an idea of how you can improve. 

 

– Think About Your Vacation Days And How You Want To Spend Them

Speaking of organising yourself at work, you also need to think about your vacation days and how you’re going to spend them. Whether you get a handful of days or you’re spoilt for choice, it’s important you’re thinking about how you’re going to use them as soon as you possibly can. Not only will it help guarantee you the days off that you need but it will also help when it comes to making all of your incredible vacation plans. If it helps, write them down in your new 2020 planner! 

 

– Try Not To Procrastinate

Whether you’re working at home or at work, you need to ensure you’re not procrastinating from important tasks. It might be hard to begin with but the more practice you get, the better you will become. 

 

– Consider Organising Your Finances

Another important thing to consider when it comes to organising yourself in the new year is whether or not you’re on top of your finances. Although this can be a sensitive subject for some, staying on top of your finances should be the main priority as we continue into 2020. If you’re really struggling when it comes to paying off your existing debts, you might want to consider taking out a guarantor loan.

– Stay On Top Of Your Bills 

As well as focussing on any debts you may have, you need to focus on your month-to-month bills, as these can often spiral out of control if you choose not to pay them. If it helps, keep a spreadsheet that details what is coming out of your account and when. 

 

– Finally, Make Sure You’re Enjoying Yourself

Finally, you need to ensure you’re having your best year yet! Although you need to focus on organisation, it’s important you know how to have a good time too.
