Top 5 Reasons Your Business Needs To Get Organized.

Are you losing time, money, and clients due to your disorganization? Here are 5 reasons your business needs to get organized:

  1. Reduce Stress. We all have stressful situations that arise in our workday. When you are organized and have systems in place, it is much easier to handle a stressful situation.  If you are disorganized, you are more prone to stress on a daily basis. Have a working filing system, have a system for everything you do in your office. Organized people recover quicker than disorganized people when a stressful situation occurs. The disorganized person will waste time, and energy searching for files, phone numbers, or that important email and it will take them longer to recover from the situation. The organized person handles the stress because they know where everything is in their office and they handle the stress and go about their day. Isn’t reducing stress a good reason to get organized?
  2. Enjoy more free time. Time management and organization go hand in hand. Keep a running to-do list every day. On Friday, take a look at the week coming up to get an idea of what you have scheduled and where you have to be, make a to-do list from that. Every night before you leave work be sure you have a to-do list for the next day. To-do lists will keep you on track.  If you spend countless hours in the week searching for files, documents or emails, you are losing precious time that could be spent doing more productive work. I assure you if you plan ahead you will have more free time to enjoy with your family, exercising or spending it however you would like.
  3. Save money.  Have you been so disorganized that you are paying your bills late or paying them late because you can’t find them?  Your credit score drops when you pay bills late and your interest rates will increase.  Do you store your supplies in one area?  If not, you will be spending money on duplicate items you already own.  When was the last time you evaluated the contracts you have with your office suppliers?  I assure you, if you are disorganized, you are throwing money out the window.
  4. More energy. When you are organized, you will have more energy! You won’t waste time searching for items. When you consume yourself with clutter or disorganization, your mind will be cluttered too, which will weigh on you mentally.
  5. The biggest reason to get organized!

Your clients will have more confidence in you. How your clients perceive you is very important. We all know the saying, “You never get a second chance to make a first impression.”  Picture this scenario: You have a potential client visiting your office for the first time. You have paperwork, business cards, files, etc. all over your desk.  You are working off piles on the floor and even worse, you struggle to search for something when your potential client is in your office.  As a potential client visiting your office, I would ask myself the following questions:

*Will they misplace my personal information, due to their disorganization?

*Will they take care of my business as efficiently as I would like them to?

*Will they return my calls promptly?

*Do they seem distracted by their disorganization?

*Do I trust them with my information, are they reliable?

Having systems in place at work will make you more efficient and more productive, in turn increasing your revenue. Get organized!
