Getting Organized

Well, it was a long day but productive day today. I woke up this morning and decided that it was time to get organized. One of the main skills that one must bring to the European Business School is a high level of organization. Our program is set up in a way which inspires rigorous and detailed self-management. We have a lot of deadlines and an irregular class schedule that forces students to pay close attention to timelines and appointments. I think it is great preparation for the challenging scheduling of true working life, and it is once again a display of the multi-faceted education that is provided at our university.

Today I started off by collecting and organizing all of this semester’s class materials and allocating dates and deadlines to my calendar and to-do list. I organized my emails and setup up computer folders to make a place for everything to go. I try to pay attention to making things easily accessible and easily findable. It makes no sense to have information and material if you can’t find it. It always seems like a daunting task when you first look at the large amount of material, but once you establish order it all becomes much more manageable. I think the best way to go about organization is just to start doing it. Diligent organization is probably one of the most helpful tools when it comes to being successful at this school. I must say it is always astounding to see just how much of an impact good organization actually has. It really makes my life much easier when I have a good perspective over all of the things I have to do.

I must say that since I arrived at EBS I have sharpened my personal organizational skills considerably (even though I had considered myself organized before I came here). I am sure that I will look back upon my days here and appreciate the organizational skills that I have developed. I guess the next step of the process now is to leverage my newfound level of organization and get to work. See you next week!
