In today's world we are constantly obsessed with time. Mainly because we never seem to have enough of it. How many times have you caught yourself saying, "If only there were more hours in the day." I know I've felt like that a lot lately, especially in the summer when there are so many fun things to do. The fact of the matter is given more time we'd just find more things to fill it with, and the cycle would begin again. So instead of manifesting more hours in the day, let's make the most out of what we have.

1. Purge: First of all figure out what things you can purge from your daily routine. If I'm being honest the thing I had to eliminate was TV time. To some people that may be an important part of their routine, but I found myself just sitting mindlessly when I could have been doing something productive. This website has a calculator to help you figure out how much time your wasting, and how much time you can gain by eliminating or minimizing some tasks.

2. Prioritize: What do you absolutely have to do each day? Obviously, many of us have to work, but make sure you aren't spending too much time at work. For me I wanted to prioritize fitness. So I found a way to fit that into my schedule each day. You may want to include family time or relaxation. Prioritizing may require a bit of sacrifice in another area.

3. Plan: I created a weekly hour by hour schedule for myself including getting ready for work in the morning and even the time I spend on social media. This will help you visualize just how much time you are spending on certain tasks and help you stick to a schedule.

How do you stay organized? I'd love to hear your suggestions. Tell me in the comments below.
