02 Jan Organised for 2019
You’ve dusted off your 2018 diary, you’ve packed away the wrapping paper, gift tags and ribbons from Christmas. 2019 is the year that you will be organised – you’re determined this year!
But what will make your life easier?
- Your Calendar
Do you know what lays ahead for the month?
Mapping out those key dates, meetings and birthdays is the first, most simple step in getting your year in order. The simple act of writing down dates with pen and paper can be attractive for some, whereas others like to use their computer or mobile app. Try them all out to find out which works best for you.
- Your Finances
This one can be more tricky than it seems, and it often pays to outsource this activity.
Organising your finances, whether your business or personal accounts, can be complex, changeable and can have a tremendous impact on your wellbeing and future prosperity. Seek out support, with regular accountability check-ins to make the most of staying on top of your finances. This time next year, you’ll be thankful you took the time to prioritise this task.
- Your Travel
Booking your tickets in advance, organising hotel stays and memorising your travel preferences are all tasks that can be organised by someone else if you so wish.
If you want to organise these tasks yourself make arrangements as early as possible. This will help you to stay organised and will most likely save you money too. Also, by making the most of loyalty schemes and other quick tricks, you can afford to stay in a little more comfort, if you wish.
- Your Invoicing and Expenses
Receipts everywhere – there’s nothing more frustrating! There are plenty of apps available now to help you with getting yourself organised.
You can set targets, create records and reports, review budgets and scan receipts to name just a few. How do you organise your invoicing and expenses? Are you on top of your game, or would you like some guidance on the best tools to use? Think about what your most challenging aspect of finance is and tackle that first.
- Your Tasks
What is on your to-do list? Is it never-ending? Are you feeling overwhelmed?
Getting your tasks in order is the first step in getting organised for a great year ahead. Remember, you don’t necessarily have to tackle these things alone, or even yourself. By calling in some support, you may make greater progress than if you struggle through alone. Spending time on what you do best is the best way to spend your time.
Break down these key areas for organising yourself and your business in 2019, and you’ll be on the road to success all the way.
