For many students, from many years, they are wired to the teeth with assignments, internals and loads of college work. For some, along with this they have other work to do like a part time job maybe. Hence, a skill for organizing your work is essential. Not only is it essential, it is of the utmost importance. Regardless of how much work you have at hand, know that it is humanely possible to figure it out and solve the problem at hand.
Studies have shown that the majority of students are not organized in their work. Many fail to give their assignments on time. Others fail to keep written notes for their studies. This, in turn, leads to a big mess. It is thought that such skills would be taught at home, but that is not always the case. Keeping in mind the students’ majority and their needs, organizational skills must be learned by the students.
Another study indicates that the student will not be hired if the employer fears that the prospective student does not have the required skills like organizational abilities. Hence, such students tend to fail to find a job post-education.
Lack of organizational skills among students can contribute a lot of bad things to society as well. Being poor in organizational skills will imply that most such students will fail to find a good job due to their lack of basic skills. Even if they do find a job, it would be of a low or minimum wage income. This would put them at a severe low socioeconomic status. When they have families of their own, owing to their poor economic status, even their children will, sort of, inherit the poor skills of their parents, and the cycle goes on. Thus, such basic skills must never be taken for granted.
How do you permeate Organizational skills into your life?
Make a list of all the things that you have to do. Write it down on paper or make a note on your study device. Then prioritize them. Give some things more important than others. You will know which work should be the first priority and then the next. The basis of priority should be on the urgency of the task. The more urgent a task the higher the priority.

Take breaks smartly. You should take breaks, but not just any breaks. For the sake of taking a break, do not open your phone and is using that. That would qualify as a break but not a smart one. A smart break would mean you step away from your screen or book, stretch your body, do a few yoga poses, close your eyes and breath deeply, and so on. Do something that would relax your body from the tension it was going through.
Stay away from distractions. Switch off your mobile, turn off notifications on your computer, isolate yourself from social media for the time you are performing your work. Do not give in to any distractions.
These are just some of the best methods to ensure that you will develop and incorporate organizational skills into your life.
