Organize your life as a freelancer!
Whoever said cleanliness is next to godliness, forgot to tell you that organization is the key to keeping your deity status. With a clutter-free mind and an organized life, you’ll be able to take this year head on.
- Grocery list your life.
If it works for Santa, it can work for you too. Making lists and checking things off can give you a true sense of accomplishment. Check out the super colorful post-its at Poppin if you want to jazz up your workspace.
- We are creatures of habit.
The need for repetitive behavior is encoded in our DNA. Set up a morning, work, or exercise routine. Once you’ve stuck to it for 21 days, it will become ingrained into your life.
- Wait, where was I?
Having a gentle reminder of your daily goals is a great way to stay on track. We love desktop apps like Momentum, which takes over your browser’s homepage with an inspirational image and lets you add a specific focus for the day.
- Where are my keys?!
Keeping your workspace and home de-cluttered makes you more relaxed, both mentally and physically. Give all your belongings a home: that is, put them back in the same place every time so you always know where to find specific items.
- Bye Felicia.
Cleaning out your closet is a great way to start off a new year. Throw away or donate things you don’t need to charity. Note: Don’t donate dirty or torn clothes because time and money have to be spent on cleaning and repairing them!
- Break it down.
Break down a large or overwhelming task into smaller, more manageable steps. Create a step-by-step plan that lets you focus on one task at a time, letting you move through bigger projects more effectively and with less stress.
- Wanna feel good?
When you see yourself achieving your goals, your feelings of confidence in your abilities and your self-esteem increase. We love the Strides goal tracking app for recording your achievements.
