5 Habits of Highly Organized People You Can Adopt Today


Organized people are the best. They have a system, they plan ahead and they know how to get things done. And if you’re looking to improve your organization skills, there are plenty of habits that can help you get there. Let’s take a look at some of the most common ones:

Have a strict system.

Once you’ve decided to be more organized, it’s important to have a system for everything.

A good system will help keep your life organized, but it also helps you stay focused on what’s most important. You’ll know where things are at all times and can make decisions faster when they come up!

Plan in advance.

Planning ahead is a time-saving habit that can help you achieve your goals. It can also help you avoid stress and stay on track with your schedule.

Planning ahead means planning out all the steps of a project before it’s started. That way, when the big day comes around and everything has to happen at once, there will be less chance for confusion or mistakes because the plan was already laid out in advance of any action required by those who are executing it (you).

Use sticky notes.

Sticky notes are a great way to remind yourself of things you need to do. They can be moved around easily and they’re visible, so it’s easy to keep track of what needs doing at any given time. Sticky notes are also great for organizing your work space so that everything has its place–you don’t have to worry about losing important documents or misplacing items in the chaos of your daily life.

If you want an easy way to get organized with sticky notes (and who doesn’t?), use them!

Create a morning routine.

Having a morning routine is one of the most important habits you can develop to help keep your life organized. In fact, research shows that people who have a well-defined morning routine are more productive than those who don’t.

A typical morning routine includes activities such as:

  • Wake up at least 30 minutes earlier than usual (ideally 90 minutes before you need to start working)
  • Get out of bed and into the shower or bathtub as soon as possible after waking up in order to feel refreshed and energetic throughout your day
  • Make sure there’s nothing else on your mind but getting started with work right away so that there’s no temptation for distraction during this time!

Plan your time wisely.

  • Plan your time wisely.
  • Schedule your days and weeks in advance, so you know where to focus your energy.
  • Plan your work and personal life, as well as any other activities that you have to do on a regular basis (like cleaning the house).
  • Use a calendar to make sure that everything gets done on time, or at least in some kind of order. It’s also useful if you have multiple tasks with different priorities–if one is more urgent than another, then schedule them accordingly!

Using these habits can help you be more organized!

These habits can help you be more organized and efficient. They will also give you the ability to be more productive, focused, relaxed, and happy.

  • Be more productive: If a task feels overwhelming or difficult then it’s most likely not worth doing in the first place. If this happens often throughout your day then consider delegating it to someone else or doing it yourself later when there’s less of a time crunch involved (which is easier said than done).
  • Be more focused: To have laser-like focus on what needs doing at any given moment requires mental energy so make sure that you’re taking care of these essentials first before moving onto other tasks that are less important or urgent.[1] You may find this helpful by purposefully planning out your days so as not overburden yourself with too many commitments at once–it also helps if they’re all within reasonable time frames (e.g., “I will get my taxes taken care of tomorrow”).


And there you have it! I know it can be a challenge to get yourself organized, but once you do, the benefits are endless. You’ll be able to focus on what matters most and accomplish more in less time. And if that’s not enough motivation for you, consider this: keeping all those sticky notes in your pocket might help you keep track of important stuff when your brain isn’t working correctly!
