Day 7 Challenge - Achieving An Organised Day

Time is precious! While the choice is ours in how to spend our day, I am aware that in order for me to achieve our goals and dreams, it is important for me to be organised and create an action plan for short term and long term goals in different parts of my life.

"A clear vision, backed by definite plans, gives you a tremendous feeling of confidence and personal power."
~Brian Tracy

So on Day 7 of this 30-Day Challenge to a better and richer life, the task that I have given myself as the challenge is to commit to the following steps which will help me achieve an organized day.

1. Make a To-Do List.
Make a list of things to do every morning before I start to work. Prioritize every item and consolidate similar tasks.

2. Don't Get Distracted or Diverted.
Distraction is a constant challenge for me personally, so I need to be aware of it and keep focussed on my schedule and tasks at hand.

3. Tick Off Items As I Complete Them.
Every time when I finish something, I will tick if off in my to-do list. I believe this will give me a sense of accomplishement throughout the day.

4. Do A Final Check.
At the end of the day, re-think and re-check my progress, so I can be more organized the next day.

5. Keep A Personal Journal.
Engage in regular in-depth analysis and evaluation of my experiences which I think will increase self-awareness and enhance my productivity.

Can you think of any other steps that help you organise your day?

Commit your plans to the lord and he will direct your path.. do not forget to tell Jesus your goals and dream and acknowledge his power in accomplishing them.:)

Thanks Christine! Great reminder my dear friend. I love Proverbs 3:5-6 and always acknowledge Jesus' power and presence as I seek to accomplish my goals and dreams. Bless you! :)

hi kitty. i'm always interested on organizing stuff. i am always with a "things-to-do" list... ALWAYS. i never ran out of things to do. haha! it feels good to cross out things to do on my list when it's done. i love it even better when at the end of the day i get to crumple my to-do-list. it means to say --- i'm done for the day. =D

another important thing is to make sure you set yourself enough time in the day to complete the tasks otherwise you're not setting yourself up for success

Hi Pia, like you, i never run out of things to do. Love your idea to crumple to-do-list at the end of the day!

Yes it's important to set enough time to complete the tasks in the to-do list....
