Nobody is born organized. People become organized thanks to self-discipline and gaining certain skills. In this article, there are seven habits of organized students discussed. Thanks to those habits, you’ll be able to manage your time and tasks more effectively.
Probably, everyone has a colleague or a friend they can call “super-organized”: he or she is punctual, often finishes projects before their deadlines, and always knows where to find things needed when they are needed.
Isn’t it worth to find out the reasons for such results instead of being envy on those people?
Then let’s find out.
1. Organized Students Look for New Instruments to Simplify their Life on Purpose
Organized students find useful instruments starting from timer-apps for studying, which help them to do more during a day, a week, a month or even a year.
For example, they use pop-up notifications, so it is impossible for them to forget anything important. They use timers to manage their time properly. They know how to divide big tasks into several smaller ones and never forget about the importance of short breaks during their job, so they are able to work much better.
2. Organized Students Set Up Priorities
Organized students are not those who have no idea about their ongoing and upcoming tasks while being unable to decide what to do first. An organized student always knows what is important at the moment, has a precise plan of tasks which is possible to correct it when needed.
Organized students know how to choose priorities and which task can (or cannot) be postponed.
3. Organized Students Know Their Abilities
They are always aware of their possibilities and perspectives. Such students know their strengths and weaknesses, know which tasks they can do at once and which are time-taking for them.
They do not spray their efforts on something that is known to be useless. They start tasks they can do well.
4. Organized Students Choose Simple Solutions
Organized students always look for simple solutions and instruments that can help them to deal with their tasks.
Simplicity is one of the basic features of one’s being organized. Look for simple solutions everywhere: in studying, in-home tasks, in all fields of your life.
5. Organized Students Know They Can’t be Organized from Time to Time
They say that a talented person has a talent for everything. The same can be said about a person who is really organized.
Such students know how important it is to work on their self-improvement on purpose. They can’t be organized only sometimes. That is like training: if you don’t go in for physical exercises regularly, you are going to lose your good shape soon.
Organized students will always find time to clean their room and to put everything in right places. They’ll devote some minutes of their time to delete unnecessary messages from their email box and to clean their desk.
They don’t allow themselves being weak. Even when they come back home after tiring lectures, they do not throw their clothes on the floor or chairs, but put them into the wardrobe carefully. They don’t use the excuse which is favorite for millions of people all over the world: “Today I’m going to be weak, but tomorrow everything would be done as intended.”
Organized students know they should do everything well and at once. This is much faster than “working on mistakes” later.
6. Organized Students Get Rid of Useless Things Regularly
Circumstances get changed on the go, and what used to be necessary on this day, can become useless on the next one. Organized students do not gather that unneeded junk, they just throw it away.
They get rid of unnecessary things in their house, delete unneeded conversations form their email box, and don’t look through the materials for finished or postponed projects.
7. Organized Students Always Look into Future
They always think about their future and try making it as good as it is possible by doing their best in the present. They can estimate and calculate risks, and know threats coming from one day of laziness and bad job. They plan their actions and approach every task being prepared.
Organized students always ask themselves: “What can I do now to become more successful in future?”
