Benefits of Being Organized - Part 2

Being organized offers different benefits in different situations.  Last time we looked at how being organized helps in the workplace, now we'll look at how it can help with school.

Organizing For School

Better Grades 
When it comes to school and organizing, the obvious benefit is it helps with getting good grades. Having a binder to organize your notes and handouts will make it so much easier when it’s time to study, especially when there are so many different subjects. Have separate binders for Math, Science, English, History and all the other subjects and you won’t have to worry about misplacing notes or handouts.  Alternatively, you can have one binder with colored dividers to separate subjects.

*Note: You may want to use sheet protectors to help keep your note from wear and tear!

Better Time Management
Being organized will help save a tremendous amount of your time. Rather than spending time finding your loose notes or handouts, if you had them organized in the first place then you could spend more time studying.

One of the important things to learn in school is how to manage your time.  In high school, time management means how you split your time between studying for different subjects or working on school projects, and joining extra curricular activities after school.  There needs to be a balance between work and play, and so it starts with being organized for school so you can give yourself enough free time to play and be more successful with your studies.

In University, time management is even more important because you might have to juggle between different part time jobs, and going to classes and working on school projects at the same time.  The workload in University also increases significantly and so it becomes more important to be organized in order to manage your time between different subjects. Being organized definitely helps with improving your time management skills.
