Remember those organizers back in the ’90s? It’s that thick and sometimes leather-bound notebook type that literally carries every detail of your daily life. That time, it really helped me cope with the many schedules and “to do’s” of a student’s life. It brought everything in one pile – my calendar, to-do list, notes, list of expenses, contacts, all sort of ID’s and cards. It even has a pocket that serves as a wallet. Leaving the house without it would mean having to go through your day without a sense of order or direction.
You can still see those organizers on store racks. And there are still those who highly depend on them. Although most people still make use of organizers, it is no longer in the form of a leather-bound notebook. They are now called gadgets that serve not just as organizers, but as powerful communication tools used every day.
Having a system or tool in order to get organized is definitely helpful in getting things done efficiently. Organizers have served its purpose to help people systematize. However, bringing that to the next level, the use of gadgets served even more people as it is used as a communication tool as well. Both help make lives pretty organized and systematized. However, embracing the transition from using manual organizers to the use of gadgets undeniably brought better and faster results.
Same is true in the way people get organized in their businesses. While a particular way or system brings order and the results wanted for a particular time, welcoming a transition or bringing the system to the next level will most probably produce results beyond what you have targeted to achieve.
Get organized and be ready to embrace and bring your way of doing things to the next level.
