5 Ways to Successful Entrepreneur Organization

I am developing a great affinity for organization as I continue to pursue building this blog and business. I constantly have a whirlwind of ideas going through my head, and I need to have some sort of structure to make sure I can categorize and remember the things I’m thinking throughout the day.

I also tend to not be totally accountable for my commitments to my friends and acquaintances if I don’t have some form of tech reminding me.

1. YOUR CALENDAR IS YOUR BEST FRIEND

I have learned that if I put everything in my calendar, things tend to go well for me. Whether it’s an idea, a meeting, or even a reminder to change my oil, chances are that if it isn’t in my calendar, it probably won’t happen – unless my wife reminds me.

2. HAVE THE ABILITY TO TAKE NOTES AT ALL TIMES

I always carry a messenger bag with a couple of notebooks and my iPad so that I have a way to write down my ideas. If you are anything like me, you have a hard time remembering ideas. But when I have a way to record them for later, even look at things I wrote months or years back, I can plug quality content into the things I am working on now.

3. RECORD YOUR IDEAS, BUSINESS PLANS, AND CONVERSATION NOTES SMARTLY AND LEGIBLY

Take time to get your information recorded legibly and in an organized matter so it will be easy to read and find at a later time.

4. DON’T OVERCOMMIT

This is probably the biggest thing that I struggle with. I want to please everyone all the time, and I have a hard time saying no. A huge key to maintaining sanity and organization is not overcommitting my hours in a day so that I don’t end up disappointing people and canceling my appointments because I simply don’t have time.

5. PRIORITIZE

This piggybacks on not overcommitting. Prioritize your opportunities and obligations in your head. Make sure you are slotting out time for the very important things and maybe pushing the less-important items a little further off – or simply not doing them.

    Great tips! I really think number 5 is a big one for me. I am realizing the more I have my priorities and schedule aligned, the better things go overall.
