A Leadership Coaching Guide to Organisation

I am a really big on organisation. It doesn't matter how good your ideas are or how creative you are, if you can't organise things into systems and process you can't achieve anything. Creating a plan is an important step in achieving your goals and living your best life. A plan is one form of organisation and it's the first step in making your raw desire come into fruition. Here are some practical ways to create a plan:

Break down your goals: Break down your big goals into smaller, more manageable tasks. This will make them less overwhelming and easier to accomplish. To do lists seem so simple but a daily to do list can be your important tasks front of mind and will also help you track how far you have come!

Use a planner: Use a planner or calendar to keep track of your tasks and deadlines. This will help you stay organised and on track.

There are several free planners available online that you can use to organise your daily, weekly, or monthly tasks. Here are a few popular options:

  1. Trello - a visual project management tool that allows you to create boards, lists, and cards to keep track of your tasks and deadlines.

  2. Asana - a project management tool that lets you create tasks, set deadlines, and assign them to team members.

  3. Google Calendar - a free online calendar that allows you to schedule appointments, set reminders, and create to-do lists.

  4. Todoist - a task manager that lets you create tasks, set deadlines, and prioritise them according to their importance.

  5. Evernote - a note-taking app that allows you to organise your ideas, tasks, and notes into notebooks and tags.

  6. Notion - a versatile tool that lets you create tasks, databases, and wikis to organise your personal and professional life.

Prioritise your tasks: Prioritise your tasks based on their importance and urgency. This will help you focus on the most important tasks and avoid procrastination.

Here are some ways to effectively prioritise:

  • Start by identifying your most important tasks and responsibilities.

  • Use a system or tool to track and manage your tasks and deadlines, such as a to-do list, planner, or digital app.

  • Break down your tasks into smaller, more manageable steps to help you stay organised and focused.

  • Consider your own personal values and goals when prioritising tasks to ensure that you are working towards what truly matters to you.

  • Learn to say "no" to tasks and responsibilities that don't align with your priorities or that you don't have the time or resources for.

  • Use time-blocking techniques to schedule and allocate time for specific tasks and projects throughout your day or week.

Be flexible: Be flexible and willing to adjust your plan as needed. Life is unpredictable, and sometimes things don't go according to plan. Be prepared to make changes and adapt to new circumstances.

By following these practical tips, you can create a plan that will help you achieve your goals and live your best life. Remember to stay focused, be patient, and never give up on your dreams!
