Having a place for everything and every thing in its place is a wonderful way to keep your space organized.
But you can also apply this same principle to regular tasks, as a way to keep your time well organized, too.
This has several benefits:
- You save time by not having to schedule regular tasks each time
- You avoid stress by not having to remember regular tasks
- You create good habits for yourself
- You find optimal times for regular activities.
Here are some examples.
Checkprocess email every day around 8am and 3pm
- Refill coffee machine every night before bed â€“ even if itâ€™s not quite empty
- Clear sent mail folder before closing Outlook at the end of each work day.
- File nails every Saturday before showering
- Follow up email Pending folder every Friday after lunch
- Do grocery shopping every Tuesday evening when the store is well stocked and quiet.
- Clean fridge last Saturday of every month
- Declutter inbox and delete unneeded emails first Monday of each month
- Do birthday gift/card shopping first Saturday of every month for the month ahead.
You donâ€™t have to be cheerlessly anal about this. Use the idea only to the extent that it helps your productivity and time management â€“ not as a rigid noose around your diary.
Do you think this can work for you? Do you have daily, weekly or monthly tasks that be given a set place? Please share in the comments!
