For many people keeping things organized is a big challenge, whether it is their brain or their house or their office desk, doesn’t matter how much they try, they end up messing things again.

Where as for some people staying organized comes naturally. They are always organized effortlessly. No one is born with this skill. One has to develop it with time. It’s not like one day you can clean everything and expect it will stay like that throughout your life. It takes few practices on daily basis. But mostly you first need to organize your brain. If you can organize and compartmentalize everything in your brain your life will automatically fall into right place as well.

It’s really not that difficult if you follow few very simple tips in your daily life. Plus by being organized you can be more productive, efficient and you can save a lot of time in your 24 hours.

– Always make a list or a mental note of your top most important tasks so that it is always done on time.
– Never let things pile up, always go with the process do the things that should be done.
Like when you enter your house after a long day don’t stash you bag on the floor along with your shoes, rather keep it in place, it will take the same energy as it takes to just put it on the ground. Once you change into fresh cloths, make sure to fold your used cloths or put it directly into laundry hamper if it needs to be cleaned.
– Do it now and stop procrastinating Once you let the thought enter into your mind that, “I will do it after sometime.” Do know that, the time will keep going and you will end up with a lot of more work to do at the last moment.
– Try doing one thing at a time. If you can focus on one thing, you can finish it much sooner.
– Learn to keep things in right place once you have used it.
– Take control of how you use your time.
– It’s better to declutter regularly. If everyday you keep check of things that you are not going to use anymore than you will have less things to organize. The more stuff you have, the more time it will consume to organize everything.

– Keep checking things off your long list of things to do.
– Avoid going for perfection.
– Take proper rest and so that you don’t feel lethargic.
– Mark your calendar for important stuffs to keep a track of everything that needs to be done.

Book Review: How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie

It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.
– Dale Carnegie

We are living in twenty first century and in the current times making friends digitally is very very easy. People talk virtually through many social media platforms but when it comes to making real friends and having a real bond, most of us are lacking behind. Dale Carnegie wrote the book “How to win friends and influence people” in the year 1936 but it is still one of the best book which can help you in making a reliable social circle of your own in today’s time.

Carnegie has explained each and every step and point in a very understandable way. And the best part is he has jotted down very small and minute things which we hardly ever notice in our own way of talking and meeting people. Like at times we meet people and talk to them, but we don’t show complete interest in what they are saying but in return we do expect them to give us their complete attention.

He has pointed out how we want others to like us but we never take the initiative in liking them first. We want to be important part of other people’s lives but we never try to make them feel that they are important to us. The only way to influence other people is to talk about what they want and show them how to get it. These are few examples of how Carnegie has explained in the book the process of making new friends and wining them and how to influence people towards the betterment of our lives and getting success. But at few points I did felt that all the steps mentioned in the book is not relatable by all kind of personalities. It may happen that few of the steps may conflict your own opinion in life. But having said so, to change your life you have to come out of your own comfort zone.

Inner voice being demolished by social noise!

Do one thing every day that scares you.
– Eleanor Roosevelt

Has it ever occur to you how much of your ideas and creativity became soundless in your brain by the noise created on the social ground?

You might even have forgotten those great ideas because it was constantly fed into your brain like, ” Do you think you are capable of actually doing it?”
“Yeah, as if you can accomplish something like that!”
“It’s not very practical in reality.”
“It’s very risky for you.”
“What if you do it and fail?”
“You are a grownup now, try to understand and take action on your responsibilities.”
“Dreams are good when you are sleeping.”

There are many more examples that I can give but I guess you understand the gist of what I am talking about. Right!

In a few seconds of hearing those statements, your brain starts to shrink and you literally forget the reason it all started and you look towards your daily life. You feel like why to mess it up when everything is going normal for me.

Well, this is very common in our day to day life, as in we are literally nurtured into this social way of fitting into a flock.

How often you feel guilty for having those dreams and passion which seems very impractical in nature to society’s eyes?
Internally you start scolding yourself for having those thoughts.

As if when you will fail in making those attempts to achieve your dream to make it true, those people will have to live the burden of your pain.

The funniest thing is everyone has one of those daydreams which they want to fulfil, but most of them don’t have the guts to take the risk or take that required first step forward. So even though they know it will literally change their own life if they make one single move, what they actually end up doing? They try to stop others as well to do the same thing.

I really admire those people who actually encourage someone to take the leap and actually stand behind them to catch that someone if they fall.

So the point of all this is what kind of person you want to be?
Whether you want to leap yourself or not is a totally different matter.
But I guess our society needs more of those kinds of people who support you and push you to stand up and try again when you fall and are wounded and bleeding.

It takes a lot to put efforts and keep trying to achieve your own dream. But it takes a lot more effort to take a stand for someone else so that they can achieve their dream.
If we can be one of those people, then maybe we can see more successful and happy people around us, who can inspire others to leap in their life.
