If you're starting to feel like you want more control over your life, getting organized can make a world of difference. Once you've organized your workplace, living space or home office, you'll be able to handle anything that life throws at you. You can stay on top of your daily chores, complete tasks efficiently and have some time for yourself at the end of the day! It might sound overwhelming at first, but getting organized is a simple task that requires only a few tools. Check out the following tips for getting organized.
Are you the type of person who loses stuff easily? You can spend 10 minutes searching for your smartphone or car keys before realizing that they were sitting on your kitchen counter the whole time. Losing your belongings isn't just frustrating—it can seriously interfere with your life and make it difficult to get anything done.
Fortunately, Tile can help you simplify your life by keeping track of your belongings and finding lost items with ease. The process is simple: Buy a Tile and attach it to your device or thing you don't want to lose. Then, install the Tile app on your smartphone and sync the Tile to your app. If you lose the item in a place that's somewhere nearby, you can pull up the app to locate the item in moments by making the Tile ring. If it's lost further away, you can use the map in your app to see where your item was last seen by Tile and get walking or driving directions back to it.
If your item is lost and not where you last had it, you can also get secure and anonymous help from the Tile Network. When other Tile users come within Bluetooth range of your lost item, their Tile app will automatically and anonymously send you the updated location of your Tiled item.

Many people haven't used a planner since they were in elementary school. It might feel a little silly at first, but investing in a planner is a great way to stay organized. You can even make it fun by purchasing cute stickers, tabs and dividers for your planner. A planner gives you the perfect space to write down assignments, keep track of appointments, make to-do lists, jot down reminders for yourself and look at your entire week at a glance. You'll also be able to look back on your year if you need to check an old appointment or assignment. Digital planners are also a great option for anyone looking for a quicker way to organize, although typing isn't as effective as writing is for memorization.
If you have trouble completing your tasks, try making a to-do list with the shortest and easiest tasks on the top. As you complete the first chores on your list, you can slowly move on to the more challenging tasks. You'll get a sense of accomplishment when you look back and see how much you crossed off in a single day.
To make the more challenging tasks easier, try breaking them down into simple steps that can be accomplished quickly. For example, if you have to make a presentation for your office, write down all the steps you need to take to prepare. This could include researching the topic, making PowerPoint slides and practicing your presentation. Even the hardest tasks appear less daunting when you look at the individual steps one by one.
