ORGANIZE YOURSELF AND YOUR TIME
Here are some tips to help you be more organized.
1. Be An Early Bird
Go to bed early. This will make it easier for you to wake up refreshed. I have found that going to bed early on Friday nights is a great way to stay energetic the whole week.
2. Go Blue
Buy yourself three or four pairs of jeans and use these during the year. Jeans go with everything and will make it easier for you to get dressed in the morning. If you have children, do the same for them. Children can get dressed themselves if they have clothes that all go together.
3. The Night Before
Lay out your clothes, shoes, and socks the night before. Have your kids do the same. If they wear jeans and matching shirt, this will be easy for them. Also, try on any new clothes the night before to make sure it looks okay.
4. Reward Yourself
Make yourself a breakfast that you enjoy. Examples are: frozen fruit shake, quick pancakes or buttery eggs. If you are short on time, have a cup of tea and some buttered toast. A fun breakfast can make for a better morning!
5. Meaty Meals
Have some protein with each meal. Examples of protein are eggs, chicken or turkey. Some people even cook chicken breast on the weekend and have it during the week. Having some protein will help you to stay energetic all day.
6. The Golden Quarter
Here is a secret to a great workday and a great career: Get to work 15 minutes early. Make this a habit! You will not be sorry. Getting to work a little early makes you look professional. If you look professional, you’ll want to be professional. Being early can also prevent you from getting to work late. If you are delayed on the road, you may still be on time. If 15 minutes is too early, start with 5 minutes. Then work your way to 15 minutes.
I hope these tips work for you!
