It’s hard to believe, but next month is the sixth month of 2021. In other words, we will already be halfway through the year! This means we have to ask ourselves a key question — how well are we staying organized?
As we near this mid-point, take a look at some of our tips for analyzing progress. Remember: stay positive, stay on track, and stay organized.
- Measure Your New Year’s Resolutions Against Your Current Situation
At the beginning of the year, we shared some organization tips for 2021. With these tips in mind, you probably made some organizational-based New Year’s resolutions to help you along.
Now it’s time to dust those resolutions off, assess your progress, and find out which ones you’ve kept up with and which ones you’ve let slip.
- Focus on the Good Stuff
Now is definitely not the time for getting despondent. There’s no point in being down in the dumps just because you didn’t keep all of your resolutions. If you’ve not kept all of yours, don’t worry! That is the case for around half of us — you’re certainly not alone.
Instead, focus on the positives. Allow yourself a pat on the back for all you’ve been able to achieve, even in these testing times. A positive focus is the only way forward.
- Be Realistic About the Next Steps
Where do you hope to be by the end of the year? At the mid-point, you can start to set some targets for the rest of 2021. Just remember to be realistic. Learn from what you’ve experienced so far, and don’t heap too much pressure on yourself.
- Reappraise Your Organization Toolkit
Which digital organization tools have helped you get on top of 2021? Which ones would you like to use more over the next six months, and which ones would you like to jettison in favor of something more useful? Be ruthless in answering these questions, and build an organizational toolkit that really works for you.
