How To Become More Organised At Work

Emily Topping

Being able to stay organised at work has proven research to suggest that it means an easier and happier life for you as an employee, it takes a lot of stress away from your working life and keeps you focused on important tasks at hand. The organisation is also a way of feeling a lot more confident in yourself and your role within a workforce.  So, what are some good ways to ensure that you are keeping yourself organised whilst at work?

Using calendars and schedules

An underrated form of keeping organised is using calendars and schedules to keep everything on track, it is a lot easier to file e-mails, meetings, and workload if you can simply click or view a calendar that will show everything that needs to be done within a certain time.

Keeping to a routine

It is uncommon for people to think that a routine would do them good in a workplace because they are always changing to go with the environment or the workload, they have for a set 24-hour period.

This is not always correct, keeping to a routine will set anyone up for the day ahead, if you already know what is going on for the day and have it planned accordingly then when upsets do occur then they can be simply slipped into your already existing routine.

Make lists

Writing things down is one of the best practices to put into place when you want to get organised, keeping it all in your head and trying to remember every detail is practically impossible.

But lists do not need to be a long boring and tedious task, if you have a project coming up, then maybe you could make a list of each milestone that needs to be completed by a certain date

Keep your desk tidy!

We all know that working in a dirty environment is never going to lead to good results, so keeping your stuff in certain sections of your desk, filing accordingly and then making sure that each task that you may have on your list is right where you can get access to it.

Don't be afraid to ask for help

If you do not know how to do something, then the best way to try and get better at it is to look at people who are already doing it better than you are currently. This means that you can use the organizational skills of another person to your advantage and learn from that.

It is a great skill, in general, to be able to learn from other people, someone in your office may have a different way to go about organising your desk that we have not discussed here, maybe one that would work well for you.

Another point to mention here is to try and stay away from multitasking, spreading your energy thin is going to take up a lot of your mental capacity which leads to people becoming more disorganised.

Start with little steps and see what works best for you and then move forward from there, finding those little golden nuggets that allow you to become more organised at work, which is better for not only the people and company you work for but for you and your own personal energy.
