5 Ways to Manifest Anything

5 Ways to Manifest Anything

It may seem like it’s hard to make something big happen for you, but it really isn’t. All you have to do is get it in gear and you can manifest anything. The best thing you can do is avoid the urge to hesitate and just throw yourself into your journey. Here are some ways to make it easier to manifest things you thought were impossible.

1. Ask Yourself What You Really Want

What’s your goal? Is it to spend more time with your family? Is it to make more money? Is it to have more power or influence? Think about what in your life is bringing you fulfillment. What’s giving you a reason for being? Don’t concern yourself with what’s the easiest. The best kind of happiness isn’t effortless; it requires real work. Just figure out what makes you the proudest of yourself at the end of the day. When you find what that goal is, pinpoint it and then make it your mission to reach it.

2. Visualize

Picture yourself where you want to be. Looks good, doesn’t it? Keep that picture in mind as you make steps towards your ultimate goal. Keep in mind that as you’re moving forward that visualization might alter somewhat. Sometimes your goals shift, and sometimes they even change completely. Don’t be afraid to go with the flow if you identify a better path for yourself, but you should always have some kind of image in your head of where you ultimately want to end up. It can even literally be a picture. You might be more motivated if you have a photo or drawing of yourself achieving your end goal. You can look at that everyday in your cubicle or office or study and think about how sweet the actual moment will be.

3. Take Action

Stop being idle and do something already. Admit it to yourself that you’re not waiting for the right moment, you’re just plain stalling. The longer you think about taking on a big task without committing to it, the scarier it becomes to get the project off the ground. Even if you don’t know what the best first step is, you need to hurry up and get on that ladder! It might be a shaky climb at first but you’ll eventually get to the top if you persevere and just keep moving.

4. Be Grateful

Recognize what you have and feel blessed that you have it. Express your gratitude by not taking the gifts you have been given for granted. If you’re reading this you probably have opportunities available to you that billions of people don’t so please make the most out of them. Mementos like your wedding ring or your smartphone or even your pair of shoes should be a constant reminder that you should be doing more to make the best out of your life. Not everyone has a chance to manifest anything like you do. Remember that, and pursue your dreams in full force.

5. Stop The Limiting Beliefs

Don’t let your doubt fester, treat it like germs and wash your hands of it. Remind yourself constantly that your limitations are minimal compared to all that you can accomplish. You can do and achieve so much if you have the dedication to actually do it. Don’t overthink things; just go full steam ahead. The worst thing you can do is fail, and even the worst failures (especially the worst failures) can be the most invaluable lessons. You learn from the failures, you grow, you try again, and again, and eventually you succeed. The only losers are quitters, and sadly there are a lot of quitters. Don’t be one of them.

15 Best Organizing Tips For Office Organization and Getting More Done

15 Best Organizing Tips For Office Organization and Getting More Done

You may think that you don’t have time for office organization, but if you really knew how much time that disorganization cost you, you’d reconsider.

Rearranging and moving piles occasionally doesn’t count. Neither does clearing off your desk, if you swipe the mess into a bin, or a desk drawer.

A relatively neat and orderly office space clears the way for higher productivity and less wasted time.

Organizing your office doesn’t have to take days, it can be done a little at a time. In fact, maintaining an organized office is much more effective if you treat it like an on-going project, instead of a massive assault.

So, if you’re ready to get started, the following organizing tips will help you transform your office into an efficient workspace.

1. Purge Your Office

De-clutter, empty, shred, get rid of everything that you don’t need or want. Look around. What haven’t you used in a while?

Take one area at a time. If it doesn’t work, send it out for repair or toss it. If you haven’t used it in months and can’t think of when you’ll actually need it, out it goes. This goes for furniture, equipment, supplies, etc.

Don’t forget about knick-knacks, plants (real or artificial), and decorations – if they’re covered with dust and make your office look shabby, they’re fair game.

2. Gather and Redistribute

Gather up every item that isn’t where it belongs and put it where it does.

3. Establish Work “Zones”

Decide what type of activity happens in each area of your office. You’ll probably have a main workspace (most likely your desk,) a reference area (filing cabinet, shelves, binders,) and a supply area (closet, shelves or drawers.)

Place the appropriate equipment and supplies are located in the proper area as much as possible.

4. Close Proximity

Position the equipment and supplies that you use most within reach. Things that you rarely use can be stored or put away.

5. Get a Good Labeler

Choose a label maker that’s simple to use. Take the time to label shelves, bins, baskets drawers. Not only will it remind you where things go, but it will also help others who may have a need to find, use, or put away anything in your workspace.

6. Revise Your Filing System

As we move fully into the digital age, the need to store paper files has decreased.

What can your store digitally? Are you duplicating files? You may be able to eliminate some of the files and folders you’ve used in the past. If you’re storing files on your computer, make sure you are doing regular back-ups.

Here’re some storage ideas for creating a smooth filing system:

  • Create a meeting folder – Put all “items to be discussed” in there along with items that need to be handed off, reports that need to be given, etc. It’ll help you be prepared for meetings and save you stress in the even that a meeting is moved up.
  • Create a WOR folder – So much of our messy papers are things that are on hold until someone else responds or acts. Corral them in a WOR (Waiting on Response) folder. Check it every few days for outstanding actions you may need to follow-up on.
  • Storage boxes – Use inexpensive storage boxes to keep archived files and get them out of your current file space.
  • Magazine boxes – Use magazine boxes or binders to store magazines and catalogs you really want to store. Please make sure you really need them for reference or research, otherwise recycle them, or give away.
  • Reading folder – Designate a file for print articles and documents you want to read that aren’t urgent.
  • Archive files – When a project is complete, put all of the materials together and file them away. Keep your “working folders” for projects in progress.
  • File weekly – Don’t let your filing pile up. Put your papers in a “To File” folder and file everything once a week.

7. Clear off Your Desk

Remove everything, clean it thoroughly and put back only those items that are essential for daily use.

8. Organize your Desktop

Now that you’ve streamlined your desktop, it’s a good idea to organize it.

Use desktop organizers or containers to organize the items on your desk. Use trays for papers, containers for smaller items.

Don’t forget your computer desktop! Make sure the files or images are all in organized folders. I’d recommend you clear your computer desktop everyday before you leave work.

9. Organize Your Drawers

Put items used together in the same drawer space, stamps with envelopes, sticky pads with notepads, etc.

Use drawer organizers for little items – paper clips, tacks, etc. Use a separate drawer for personal items.

10. Separate Inboxes

If you work regularly with other people, create a folder, tray, or inbox for each.

11. Clear Your Piles

Hopefully with your new organized office, you won’t create piles of paper anymore, but you still have to sort through the old ones.

Go through the pile (a little at a time if necessary) and put it in the appropriate place or dump it.

12. Sort Mails

Don’t just stick mail in a pile to be sorted or rifle through and take out the pieces you need right now. Sort it as soon as you get it – To act, To read, To file, To delegate or hand off. .

13. Assign Discard Dates

You don’t need to keep every piece of paper indefinitely. Mark on files or documents when they can be tossed or shredded.

Some legal or financial documents must be kept for specified length of time. Make sure you know what those requirements are.

14. Filter Your Emails

Some emails are important to read, others are just not that important.

When you use the filter system to label different types of emails, you know their priority and which to reply first.

15. Straighten Your Desk

At the end of the day, do a quick straighten, so you have a clean start the next day.

Bottom Line

Use one tip or try them all. The amount of effort you put into creating and maintaining an efficient work area will pay off in a big way.

Instead of spending time looking for things and shuffling piles, you’ll be able to spend your time…well…working and you’ll enjoy being clutter free!
