Is getting organized one of your top goals for 2017? I don’t know about you, but I stopped making New Year’s Resolutions several years ago. Instead, about November, I start reviewing what I have achieved in the prior months and what I can do to finish the year strong. It works! Instead of setting resolutions that you are destined to forget, how about making lifestyle changes that work!

“Thinking about what you’d like to do this year? You might be interested to know the most searched New Year’s resolutions on Google (1) (thanks to a data company called iQuanti):
- “Get Healthy” – over 62 million searches

Personally, I can see how 1,2,3,4,5, and 7 can be related.
- Get Healthy – Making a meal plan and preparing meals ahead is a great way to start the path to better health. (Getting organized for better health.)
- Get Organized – The obvious but simple – things such as getting stuff in order so that time is not wasted looking for what cannot be easily found can mean more time to do the things you want to do…such as travel…need I say more?
- Live Life to the Fullest … Hey, living organized is a great way to do that. I remember the years that I struggled to get control of the clutter in my small house – a home full of clutter is not a way to live a full life.
- Learn New Hobbies – Instead of buying more stuff that you will never use, take deliberate actions toward new hobbies that can enrich your life and that of others you share hobby time with!
- Spend Less and Save More. After getting organized, you will find you no longer spend money buying things you already own but just can’t locate. Nothing is more frustrating than discovering you had what you spent time and money acquiring again for something needed.
- Travel – You can use time and funds saved by your new organizing skills to earmark in your budget under “Travel”. Enjoy your time and make a scrapbook of your journeys to help you remember the good times.
- Read More – maybe even about organizing if that is an interest for you. Got lots of books now? You can make index cards of your favorite articles and books so you can return to them. It is not necessary to keep an entire magazine for one good story – make a single copy or cut it out and place in a spiral or notebook for reference.
All the resolutions can enhance lives. But, instead of trying all of them at once, how about making a plan to do the one or two that matter most to you? That will improve your chances of achievement and you will benefit from your goal to be more organized and feel good doing it.
I have lived life both ways and getting organized gave me a life that I enjoy more each day.
