Real talk: Becoming more organized doesn’t happen overnight.

Real-er talk: It will never happen if you don’t change your habits.

It’s resolution time, and many of us are planning to turn over a new leaf this year in our organizational habits. But your plan will never be more than a plan unless you take a step.

The key to becoming more organized is so simple: plan ahead, then take action.

Want to be more organized? Take a few minutes to do this right now. Think of that one area of your life that you always feel under-prepared for. Then spend five minutes with a pen and notepad jotting down a few ideas –

* Why do you think are you disorganized in this area?
* Is the situation out of your control, or can you do something to help?
* What are two or three things you can do to make this area of your life more organized?
* What is a reasonable time frame for you to achieve these goals?


If you’re thinking, gosh, my whole LIFE seems disorganized – I hear you, sister.

If you feel stressed DAILY from the moment you rise until the moment you sleep, your day needs a plan.

If you survive the day-to-day okay, but are left at the end of each week with a list of to-dos that you can never finish in one weekend, your week needs a plan.If the day-to-day goes by just fine, but you tend to forget the big picture, your month (or perhaps your year) needs a plan.
