How to Stay Organised in Business

If you’re reading this blog, we already know a few things about you:

  1. You love organising. 
  2. You’re amazing at getting other people’s lives in order. 

Now we want to ensure that your business life is equally organised, by sharing our tips and favourite ideas for business organisation. 

Sync important documents to a cloud based storage system

We cannot stress the importance of setting yourself up with a good cloud based storage system. 

Cloud based storage systems allow you to access and edit documents from a number of different electronic devices as long as you have a Wi-Fi connection and the correct application installed on your device. This means that you can access all of your important files and business information at home and on-the-go.

There are many different cloud based storage systems on the market, each offering their own set of pros and cons. We recommend doing a small amount of research before selecting the system that’s right for you. Popular systems include Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft One Drive and Apple iCloud Drive. 

Allocate 20 minutes of ‘paperwork’ time each day

The only true way to stay organised in business is to stay on top of your paperwork (soft and hard copies). 

Do this by allocating a small portion of each workday to filing, organising and sorting your business life. It may not be the most fun aspect of running your own business, but it’s essential. And you will thank yourself for taking the time in the long term, especially when tax season rolls around again. 

Plan your day the night before

A great habit for staying organised and on top of your work is to plan your day the night before. At the end of each work day, spend five minutes writing a to-do list and filing in your calendar with any appointments you have. 

This enables you to start each day knowing exactly what you need to achieve. Doesn’t that sound great?
