21 Success Habits of Highly Organized People

Highly organized people enjoy something many of us endlessly strive for: success.

How do they do it?

There is one major difference that is apparent. Organized people are extremely attuned to their thoughts. What you do and the habits you have are directly proportionate to whom you believe you are.

Highly organized people have the mental strength to create solid, motivating core beliefs. From that, comes identity-based habits. The major advantage to identity-based habits is that they're based upon who you believe you are.

When you believe you're successful, you make successful decisions.

It's something subtle, yet powerful where organized people can alter the focus of wanting to do something into actually taking steps to do it. It all begins and ends, with inner core beliefs that match their idea of who they are.

Your ‘True Colors’

Identity-based habits are more successful in the long term because unlike goal-based habits, they originate from within. You begin to establish habits from the inside out.

In other words, your core beliefs that play like tapes in your head, are all based upon the person you actually want to be. You then back those affirmations up with small daily actions (habits) that help you to become that person.

Below are 21 success habits of organized people. It’s not enough to tell yourself you’re an organized person. With each of these habits, form an individual core belief for every single one of them. Examples of a good core belief for each are given.

Start with this: I am an organized person.

Below are the actions that you take in order to back this statement up.

Or if you'd like a "cliff notes" version of these success habits, here is a SlideShare version... Super Hero style (And if you enjoy it, please share over social media):

Habit #1: Write everything down

There really is such a thing as ‘head space.’ When you’re in the middle of something and an article idea, marketing ideas, ‘to do’ tasks, grocery list etc. pops into your head, write it down. This literally clears your mind so that you can remain creative. This is an extension of just simply maintaining a calendar. This is a ‘catch all’ for all of the light bulbs that come on in a normal workday.

Belief: I write every idea or thought that comes to mind so I can keep my mind clear.

Habit #2: Financial Awareness

Part of remaining organized includes knowing exactly where money is spent. Develop a system for tracking profit and loss and returns on investment. If you don’t know where to start, simply start with a spreadsheet. You can easily develop this habit simultaneously with #1 because you should be writing everything down anyway. Knowing where all of your money goes not only shows your profit and loss quickly, but it enables you to identify where you can cut back in the case of an emergency or unexpected expense.

Belief: I track where my money goes. I know exactly what I’ve spent and where.

Habit #3: De-clutter Your Work & Living Space

The more your work and living space are de-cluttered, the clearer your mind is. For example, how many times have you been in the middle of writing an article, you see your empty coffee cup and all of a sudden it triggers you that you need to put coffee on the grocery list? Then you start mentally making that list in your head when you’re supposed to be writing the first draft of that article or that chapter? A de-cluttered work/living space produces a de-cluttered mind.

Belief: A de-cluttered space equals a de-cluttered mind.

Habit #4: Everything In Its Place

Looking for a misplaced item exudes time, stress and energy. Have a designated place for everything so that when you need it, you know exactly where it is.

Belief: A place for everything and everything in its place.

Belief: I track where my money goes. I know exactly what I’ve spent and where.

Belief: A decluttered space equals a decluttered mind.

Belief: I spend a few minutes picking everything up so I know where to find it when I need it.

Belief: I block out everything swarming in my head so I can really focus.

Belief: I’m never too stubborn to ask for help.

Don’t ever avoid an issue or a problem. Stay diligent so that you can catch, and face problems early on before they become giants.

Belief: I face my problems head on.

Habit #14: Know Who’s Who & What’s What

Belief: I’m the type of person that keeps my sources handy.

Belief: When the going gets tough, I work harder.

Belief: I’m the type of person who can still eat healthy even when I’m on the go.

Belief: So yeah, this happened, now what can I learn from this? How can I improve?
