How to Organize Yourself to Create Conscious Spaces
These two little words came to mind as I was writing a post on LinkedIn, sharing about Caccau. In that post, I mentioned that "with the changes that the year brought me, I created space." And I started thinking about it. Well, I created spaces in my life, primarily to create things that motivate me, learn about things I'm interested in, and most importantly, change my habits. I made space for myself, my projects, and my life.
Creating space in life can be a challenging task, but it's one of the most rewarding. When we create space, we open doors to new opportunities and experiences.
Often, we get stuck in our daily routines, with no time to dedicate to activities that make us happy and motivate us. When I realized I needed to better organize my time, I researched tools and techniques to help me analyze my time, tasks, desires, and aspirations, and thus gain more clarity on how to incorporate what's important to me.
Organization is the Way Forward
With that in mind, I've compiled some tips that can help you get organized better:
Analyze your routine: Take a close look at your daily schedule and tasks. Identify activities that are genuinely important to you and those that can be eliminated or delegated.
Prioritize: Set your priorities and focus on the activities that matter most to you. Reserve time in your schedule for these activities and treat them as non-negotiable commitments.
Eliminate distractions: Identify distractions that may be consuming your time and energy. Reduce or eliminate these distractions to make space for activities that truly matter.
Try organization techniques: There are many techniques and tools that can help you organize your time and tasks more efficiently. Experiment with different approaches and see which one works best for you.
Create intentional spaces: Set aside time in your routine for activities that motivate and interest you. Create intentional spaces for learning new things, engaging in physical activities, reading a book, or simply relaxing. Treat these spaces as non-negotiable commitments and don't allow other activities to interfere with them.
Creating space was a way to change my habits and behaviors. And I know that this is an ongoing process. As our interests and goals change, it's important to revisit our routines and make adjustments.
It's worth noting that organizing to create space doesn't mean overloading your schedule with more activities. On the contrary, it's about finding a healthy balance between activities that motivate and interest us and the time needed to rest and recharge.
What Can Help You on this Journey
In addition to organization techniques, there are methods and apps that can assist in better managing your time and tasks, such as:
The Pomodoro Technique, which divides time into work and rest intervals. For example, 25 minutes of focused work and 5 minutes of rest.
Time Blocking, which divides time into blocks dedicated to specific tasks.
Productivity apps like Google Tasks, Trello, and Todoist that can help manage time and tasks more effectively.
I use Google Calendar and Notion (my favorite 🥰 ) for everything; my entire organization is in there. Besides the customization, which I particularly love, the visibility is perfect.
I hope you've enjoyed the content and can use these tips to identify what's important and test tools or methods that make more sense for your daily life.
All the best ✨
