We get it, you started out the year feeling like Beyoncé. Who runs the world? You. That New Year's resolution to keep on top of work, your social and family life seemed all too easy for this new and improved 2017 version of you.
But let’s be honest, it’s nearly halfway through the year and things are looking a little more hectic and disorganised. Even though stationery runs through our veins and we are meant to have organisation options at our finger tips, we too will throw our hands up and say it’s a little too easy to get thrown off the organised train.
Because we appreciate a good little kick in the backside, we decided to jot down (as we do) the things we always turn to when the sh*t hits the unorganised fan.
Let’s hope these five tips to organising life help us, and you get the sparkle back.
1. Use an Agenda or Planner book religiously:
If your brain is a mess of mental Post-It notes filled with appointments, meetings and birthday parties, it might be time to purchase an agenda. Seeing your plans organised weekly, monthly and yearly on paper will help you stay on top of things and keep a clear head.
Psst, our 2017 Grey Linen Agenda is the perfect size to fit in your handbag.
2. Create a daily to do list:
An achievable to-do list should really focus on quality over quantity. Instead of squeezing every little thing on to torture yourself, choose three of your most urgent/important tasks from your weekly planner in your Agenda. If you are a sucker to procrastination when creating a to do list, fill it out the night before
Oh yeah, the Rose Gold Daily Planner is a great way to organise your day.
3. Arrive 10 minutes early for everything:
Arriving early gives you a chance to catch your breath, compose yourself and be present. Whether it is a job interview or a lunch meeting, arriving early gives off the air of someone calm and in control. Even if you are having the busiest day of your life, a Girl Boss is always composed.
4. Buy your Greeting Cards in bulk:
Always be prepared! Buying greeting cards in bulk for any occasion means you can send off that thankyou card without having to rush out of the office quick smart. Plus, you will be that girl who's forever organised when a last minute b'day celebration pops up on Facebook.
5. Delegate, delegate, delegate:
Just because you are a #GirlBoss doesn’t mean you are a super hero! Learning when to delegate is an important skill that all successful women use. Incorporating the delegation of tasks into your daily planning will help you achieve more with your time.
By following these quick tips, we guarantee you will back on top of your game in no time!
