You’re a bit anxious, excited and may feel overwhelmed, but this is the year you’ve resolved to get organized.

When it comes to making New Year’s resolutions to get organized it’s important not to overreach and set yourself up for failure and disappointment. With the right plan, positive improvements will begin to appear long before spring time.

With so many areas to focus on, how do you narrow it down? Clutter and disorganization seem to be everywhere and affects everything.

The best way to keep your resolution to get organized is to plan it and take action.

Keep your New Year’s resolutions small and specific and you’ll get better results and have fewer setbacks.

These easy to implement steps will get the most effective results in helping you turn your New Year’s resolution into reality.

Have a S.M.A.R.T. Goal

  1. Be Specific! the more specific your goal, the more likely you’ll accomplish it. Instead of a generalized statement resolving to “get organized” set a specific goal to “get my home office de-cluttered and organized so I can be more productive”.
  2. Is it Measurable? What will the results look and feel like? Will you reduce the volume of paper piles by 50% or be able to put away and retrieve important documents in less time than before? When you can measure and see visible results you’ll be well on your way to achieving your goal.
  3. Is it Attainable? Is this a goal you have sufficient amount time and physical capability to actually engage in? Are their limitations or restrictions that might prevent you from accomplishing this goal? Identify any obstacles or roadblocks that may hinder your success and adjust your goal accordingly.
  4. Be Realistic! Don’t set a goal that may be overreaching. It may be unrealistic to clear every last piece of paper away from your desktop, but it may be okay if you allow only 10% to remain. Avoid setting a too high expectation that may demoralize you from accomplishing it.
  5. Is it Timely? When are you actually going to engage in action to accomplish this goal? Avoid procrastination and set a start date and end date, then schedule it like any other activity or event on your calendar. You have a higher rate of success on accomplishing your goal when it’s planned, written down and committed to!

Keep your New Year’s resolutions small and specific and you’ll get better results and have fewer setbacks.

The major reason most people don’t achieve their resolutions is because they’re too vague and often they get discouraged and give up because they’re not getting the results they expected.

The greatest success comes when you set small short-term, realistic goals!
