6 Things The Most Organized People Do Every Day

Your life is busy. Work/life balance is a challenge. You feel like you’re spreading yourself so thin that you’re starting to disappear.
Most of us feel that way. But not all of us. The most organized people don’t.
As NYT bestselling author and neuroscientist Daniel J. Levitinexplains, the VIP’s he’s met don’t seem scattered and frantic.

Creating the Pathways to Excellence

If you talk to winning athletes – not the one-time wonders, but those who win on a consistent basis – they’ll tell you that winning is a habit. What they don’t tell you is just how hard they work to develop that habit.
Winning takes a lot of things, like talent, commitment, resources and support. But most of all it takes practice, and lots of it. You can’t just read about winning in a book and then go out and do it. You can’t buy a magic wand and wave it over yourself and others. (If you could, I would have ordered one a long time ago!) You can’t attend a one-day training session and expect to win based just on that.  And you can’t delegate winning to others.
To win, you have to be in the game. You have to model it.  You have to think about it, plan for it, encourage it in others, create a system that supports it, and then practice some more. But winning isn’t just about practicing more than your competitors; it’s about practicing the right things. It starts with knowing what the right things are.  It’s about doing the little things day in and day out that lead to crossing the finish line ahead of everyone else.
