Organization 101: Setting up for success

As part of Marchan Group’s DM Q&A edition, we answer questions sent in to us. A very popular question is one on organization skills for best practice and success.

Here is my response through social media platforms on how to better prepare by first acknowledging one’s strengths and weaknesses.

Once you answer the questions on the image above, it will be easier for you to structure your day based on your personal preferences and maximize for efficiency.


For example – use your most productive time of day and your preferred method to schedule and best structure your day for success.

First, tackle the most difficult tasks of the day when you are most productive.

Use your preferred scheduling tactic to set-up timers to keep you on track, and to check-in on your progress. Break up your tasks into small actions.

  • Do not reward yourself with a break until you have completed a task.
  • Be intentional with your down-time.

Make sure to schedule breaks to avoid burn-out and schedule time on Friday to plan for the following week. Also, don’t forget to schedule your downtime to disconnect.

If you have any successful tips on organizing that work for you, feel free to comment or message me.
