5 Ways to Organize Your Business

When you’re a business-person, it’s easy to be occupied with the day-to-day deadlines of your business — and bad practices. From time to time, you must take a step back and revive and revitalize your industry. Here are five techniques to organize your business to make it more prolific — and prosperous.

  1. Organize your office

Whether your office is a dedicated space in your house, a desk in a co-working area, or just your laptop and whatever chair you can grab at the local coffee shop, being organized can result in more productive outcomes. Start by blowing out your physical space.

Sort and dump documents you no longer require. Scan the rest and put them in the cloud to save up space. Dust and vacuum-clean your workspace and remove any clutter. Be sure whatever you require is right in place, so that you don’t have to waste time searching for things.

  1. Organize your cyberspace

Do any due system updates, clean up your system desktop, get rid of useless files, and organize your folders. Go through your phone, get rid of the apps you never work on, and be sure you have the ones that are important. Ensure you have right cybersecurity manners in place and are backing up your data to the cloud.

Now is a great time to alter your passwords. Put a reminder on your program to change them twice a year, or try a password management system like LastPass that generates and saves passwords automatically.

  1. Organize your systems

Do you often feel as if you are recreating the wheel every time you get a new customer? Take out some time to make checklists, cheat sheets, templates or whatsoever tools you think can help you gain a head start on every new project. For instance, if you always grapple to draft proposals for prospects, create a few proposal templates for the most general sorts of projects you do.

This will not only save your time, but it will make your work more consistent. Do you think the apps you are using are serving you well? Look for tools that will make your day simpler and streamline it. For instance, a cloud-based payroll program will save your tons of time feeding numbers and counting invoices.

  1. Organize your time

Does it feel like you have 2.4 hours in your day instead of 24 hours? You’re seemingly wasting more time without even realizing it. Use a time tracking software to track what you’re doing for two weeks. At the end of that two weeks, analyze your records. You’ll have a much definite idea of where you are giving more time.

If you always get sidetracked by social media or YouTube videos, get an app like Freedom that can block distracting apps and sites when you want to. Plan your days to be on track. Do you have some different calendars — one for personal appointments and one for the company? Consolidate them into one cloud-based schedule to evade confusion and missed assignments.

  1. Organize your mind

Speaking of appointments, be sure to keep some time for yourself as well as your company into your calendar. If you add a daily workout or weekly lunch with your best friend to your calendar, you’re more likely actually to do it — and you’ll go back to work revived.

Do you normally jot down ideas on random paper and misremember where you put them? An app like Evernote can enable you to keep all those plans, ideas, and inspirations in one place. Need to relax your running mind so you can get to sleep? Download a meditation app like Headspace. It has escorted meditations for everything from better sleep to better focus.
