Using the Ivy Lee Method to Prioritize Your Work Faster

Skillarthi- Be on Time

“It’s not enough to be busy, so are the ants. The question is, what are we busy about?”

Henry David Thoreau Tweet

There are a lot of different factors that come into play when it comes to being successful. Let’s focus on two of them that can make a huge difference in your life.

  • Being on time
  • Being Organised

In today’s fast-paced world, we are constantly challenged with time constraints and the need to produce more work in less time than we could ever imagine. This can be extremely stressful, especially if you’re trying to juggle family and personal life alongside your career or schoolwork, so it’s no wonder that people are looking for new ways to save time every day! A great way to do this without sacrificing the quality of your work or the well-being of your loved ones is through being more organised and on time.

Set up some well-timed rules

This week, I want you to think about how well organised your life is. What five rules do you have in place that helps keep your life running smoothly? Here are some of my favorite tips:

1) Think about the things you have to do on a regular basis that is time sensitive.

2) Make a checklist of those things and share it with someone who can check off the tasks when they’re completed.

The challenges of staying organized

Staying organized can seem daunting if you don’t know where to start. However, with a few pointers, you can work your way up to an organized workspace in no time. The first step is make sure that you have all the supplies needed before getting started on organizing – this will avoid making unnecessary trips for something like paperclips or notepad sheets.

Tips for staying organized when your day is busy

  1. Keep a drawer or basket in your kitchen for cooking utensils like whisks, mixing bowls, measuring cups, cutting boards, knives, etc. This is a great place to tuck away small appliances that don’t fit anywhere else but are important for easy access when you’re cooking.

  2. Put reusable grocery bags on hooks by the door so you can grab them before leaving the house to avoid forgetfulness.

How to Get Better At Both?

You now know why it’s important to work on getting organized and being on time. So, let’s look at how we can improve both those skills. What it comes down to is getting into the habit of being conscious of time and staying on top of organizational tasks. Yes, if you’re exceptionally disorganized, it will take some up-front work to clear things up. Once completed though, you have to make an effort day in and day out to put things back in their place and stay organized. That is true for physical items, digital items, and even thoughts and ideas. The short answer then is to practice both being on time and staying organized on a daily basis until they become habits.
