Some Essential Tips for Professional Organisation


Freelance professionals can be their own greatest enemies, especially when it comes to personal organisation (this writer is guilty as charged!).

From managing multiple clients and projects to juggling competing deadlines and tasks, maintaining order amidst the chaos of freelancing can be a challenge. However, with the right strategies and tools in place, anyone can conquer clutter, boost productivity, and stay on top of their freelancing game.

In this guide, we’ll explore four essential tips for organising your work and staving off procrastination, with a special shoutout to Kirmada, the game-changing productivity software for virtual assistants and freelancers.

Systematise Your Goals and Priorities

The first step to organising your work is to clarify your goals and your order of prioritisation.

Gather all of your outstanding tasks; then, break them down into smaller, actionable subtasks, and prioritise these in order of urgency and importance.

Give yourself a daily to-do list based off these tasks, making sure it is realistic and achievable. The SMART goals framework is another highly regarded way of establishing your goals and the specific processes for achieving them.

By systematically organising your tasks and priorities, a natural roadmap will emerge to guide you.

Create a Structured Workflow

Once you’ve organised your tasks and priorities, it’s essential to create a structured workflow that helps you stay organised and productive. Use project management tools like Trello or Asana to create task lists, set deadlines, and track progress on your projects.

By systematically organising your tasks and priorities, a natural roadmap will emerge to guide you.

Break down your work into manageable chunks and allocate time each day to focus on specific tasks. Then, establish routines and rituals that support your workflow, such as setting aside dedicated blocks of time for deep work or scheduling regular breaks to recharge.

Maintain a Clutter-Free Workspace

Your physical environment can often reflect your personal state of mind.

A cluttered workspace is the sign of a cluttered mind, so it is surprising how helpful it can be to de-clutter the environment in which you work; doing this can help promote your focus and productivity.

This applies to the digital realm as well: there is nothing worse than when looking for your file feels like a game of ‘Where’s Wally?’.

Create a digital filing system for your documents, emails, and other digital assets to easily locate and access information when needed.

By creating a tidy and organised environment, both virtually and IRL, you’ll give yourself a better chance of staying productive for longer.
