Organizational Skills Online Certificate Course - Outline

Module One - Getting Started

Module Two - Remove the Clutter

In this part of the course, we take a look at the first step in becoming more organized. You will learn to get rid of the things that cause distractions and take up space. This might seem overwhelming, but by taking it one step at a time, and remembering to take a break, you can begin to de-clutter your life and start on the path to a successful organization.

Just Do It

A journey begins with a single step, and de-cluttering starts by removing that first object. Don't consider this as a sprint but a marathon. Stop making excuses and dive in.

You Don’t Have to Keep Everything

Some of us are guilty of hoarding and decide to keep everything. The key is to perform a deep examination of what is essential and what we can do without.

Three Boxes: Keep, Donate, and Trash

The most common approach to de-clutter is the Three Boxes Method. Label three boxes accordingly and pick one item at a time. Then drop the item into the corresponding box you think it belongs.

A Place for Everything and Everything in its Place

Another thing that makes a place feel cluttered are items that seem to be out of place. Observe your surroundings and identify things that are not in their proper place.

Module Three – Prioritize

Organization does not only refer to placing items in their proper place. This discipline also includes being able to organize time and activities. In this module, you will learn how to prioritize tasks and allocate time accordingly.

Write it Down

Making a mental note may not be the best idea when organizing your priorities. Having your priorities listed down on a piece of paper does not only make it easier for you to review these items but also makes it possible for you to strike down items and move down further.

Urgent/Important Matrix

The Urgent/Important Matrix is a useful tool that can be used to think about our priorities and how to handle them. But before we can use the matrix, we must first write down everything we want to accomplish within a certain period.

Divide Tasks

Dividing your tasks into smaller groups is a good idea if you're having a difficult time starting because the number of items you have listed seems to be overwhelming. How you divide, this is entirely up to you. The key here is to find a combination that works for you.

80/20 Rule

The 80/20 rules refer to prioritizing what is important and disregarding the rest. This states that if we handle the first 20 percent, which consists of the most important tasks, the rest or 80 percent takes care of itself.

Module Four - Scheduling Your Time

Time is a valuable resource that can’t be replaced or purchased. Once it’s gone, it’s gone. In this module, you will learn how to manage time effectively. How you can create a schedule that maximizes how you use your time and resources.

Have a Master Calendar

Some people may have several calendars, each for every area of their life. This might seem to be a good idea at first since you are keeping your personal life separate from work. But this might not be an ideal setup since you would run the risk of double booking events or miss important appointments.

Setting Deadlines

Deadlines are not something that should be dreaded. An organized person would regard deadlines as something that provides a sense of structure and balance.

Remove or Limit the Time Wasters

Time wasters are anything that takes us away from the task at hand. But before you can do this, you must have to identify these time wasters. This can be anything from personal time-wasters, which include checking social media or messages.

Coping with Things Outside of Your Control

Coping and adapting are the only solutions when we are faced with things outside our control. Once we accept that some things are beyond our control, we can start developing coping mechanisms that can help us overcome these situations.

Module Five - To Do Lists

When you feel overwhelmed by the amount of work you need to do, the easiest way to handle this is to create to-do lists.

Use a Day Planner

A day planner is a great tool to help you manage your time and stay on top of projects and job lists. It is also easy to keep around and accessed whenever you need it.

Finish What You Start

Listing all your tasks is half the job. Finishing what you start is another thing. To get over the tasks, having a sense of completion and accomplishment can give you that extra push you need.

Focus on the Important

Getting lost in your to-do lists and planner is a constant possibility. This is why focusing on the important is essential in keeping you on track. Determine what tasks demand your attention now and which ones can wait until a later time.

Do Quick Tasks Immediately

If you’re feeling overwhelmed with your to-do list, a great way of taking control of the situation is to do quick tasks immediately.

Module Six - Paper and Paperless Storage

Simply doing away with paperwork is impossible, even in the "paperless" age. There will always be paper receipts, invoices, cards, and business letters. The important thing is to keep everything properly filed and stored. Working with an old filing system and a paperless storage system is not impossible. You have to apply the principle of keeping things organized.

Find a System that Works for You

The secret to using an organization method is to find a system that works for you. Whether or not you go paperless, find a filing system that best matches your needs. Below are a few things you could check when deciding what system to use:

  • Where do I keep my information?
  • Do I keep physical things or electronic versions?
  • If I store paper, do I have the space?
  • If I store paperless, do I have the access?

Make It Consistent

Once you find a system that works for you, stick to it. Being consistent makes it easier to be organized because organizing becomes second nature.

Make it Time Sensitive

It's not enough to keep your important files or documents stored for safekeeping. You should also remember that every piece of information is connected to a timeline. To make organizing files more comprehensive, you should consider arranging these based on dates and deadlines.

Setting Up Archives

The next is to set up an archive for documents that you need to keep for future use. The key here is to establish a reference system that allows you to sort through later when you need to find anything.

Module Seven - Organization in Your Work Area

In this module, you will learn how to increase productivity and better project management by developing good organizing habits and value techniques.

Keeping Items Within Arm’s Reach

Organization does not only help you keep track of everything but also makes you more efficient. By keeping items within arm’s reach, you save time which can be spent on other tasks.

Only Have Current Projects on Your Desk

Get rid of the clutter by only keeping projects that you are currently working on in your work area. To keep your desk organized, as yourself:

  • When does this need to be finished?
  • Is it something that can be completed later?
  • Has this already been completed?

Arranging Your Drawers

One way of organizing your drawers is to determine how this relates to your everyday routine.

Organize to Match Your Workflow

Plan and organize according to how you use items. Follow the tips below to get a better idea of how to organize your workflow.

  • Decide what tools you will need for the day
  • Determine if additional supplies are needed
  • Focus on that project or set of tasks for the day. Don’t try to mix in other things.

Module Eight - Tools to Fight Procrastination

Procrastination is one of the leading causes of disorganization. How many times have you've been guilty of making excuses so that we can put off tasks until later? In this module, we will take a look at the different tools and habits to help us get rid of procrastination sooner, rather than later.

Eat That Frog!

This expression advices us to finish our least favorite task first. This way, every other task that comes after is less likely to be as bad as the first one making them relatively easier.

Remove Distractions

After setting out to make your task list, distractions will always be there to make you lose focus and stop working. Identify all possible distractions and make a mental note to stay away from them. Ensure everything you need is organized and stick to your workflow.

Give Yourself a Reward

Rewards are a great way of reminding ourselves of a job well done. It doesn't have to big either. Start with small rewards when working on something, give yourself a break, or get a snack.

Break Up Large Tasks

We often think that we only have a few items on our list to find out that each task contains several tasks included within it. This can be frustrating and overwhelming. Don’t fall into the mistake of miscalculating how much time you have to finish a big task. Start small and start early.

Module Nine – Organizing Your Inbox

Your email inbox is the virtual counterpart of your filing cabinet or document drawer. Today’s email systems contain tools that help you sort and organize emails. When your emails are in order, you can stay on top of your incoming and outgoing mails and always have the information you need.    

  • Setting Delivery Rules
  • Folder and Message Hierarchy
  • Deal with Email Right Away
  • Flag and Highlight Important Items

Module Ten - Avoid the Causes of Disorganization

In this part of the Organizational Skill Online Certificate course, we will discuss the causes of disorganization and how to avoid it. When we make ways to stay organized part of our regular habits, we won't have a need to give in to reasons for disorganization.

Keeping Everything

Some of us are guilty of hoarding. We keep everything because we believe that these might be something we need in the future. In reality, saving every single document, especially expired items and paperwork, only leads to disorganization.

Not Being Consistent

Repetition is the key to learning. Being consistent leads to positive behavior, becoming second nature. Returning to the road of being disorganized can be a slippery slope. We start by forgetting simple things such as removing distractions (turning the phone to silent) until one day; we're back to our old bad habits.

Not Following a Schedule

For many people, not sticking to some routine or schedule can cause them to become disorganized and procrastinate. Create a schedule that is simple and flexible. The best schedules provide structured yet flexible enough to accommodate any emergencies.

Bad Habits

Sometimes bad habits have become second nature that we fail to recognize it for what it is. The first thing is to identify these bad habits and then make a decision to change.

Module Eleven - Discipline is the Key to Stay Organized

Organization doesn't happen overnight, and this isn't the easiest decision to make. It takes hard work, discipline, and lots of good habits to keep on the path of good organization. This is why the process can seem overwhelming at first and seem like a real challenge, but it doesn’t have to be impossible. With some of the following tips and techniques, we can feel more empowered to stay disciplined in your organization.

  • Stay within your systems
  • Learn to say No
  • Have organization be part of your life
  • Plan for tomorrow, today

Getting lost in your to-do lists and planner is a constant possibility. This is why focusing on the important is essential in keeping you on track. Determine what tasks demand your attention now and which ones can wait until a later time.

Do Quick Tasks Immediately

If you’re feeling overwhelmed with your to-do list, a great way of taking control of the situation is to do quick tasks immediately.

Module Six - Paper and Paperless Storage

Simply doing away with paperwork is impossible, even in the "paperless" age. There will always be paper receipts, invoices, cards, and business letters. The important thing is to keep everything properly filed and stored. Working with an old filing system and a paperless storage system is not impossible. You have to apply the principle of keeping things organized.

Find a System that Works for You

The secret to using an organization method is to find a system that works for you. Whether or not you go paperless, find a filing system that best matches your needs. Below are a few things you could check when deciding what system to use:

  • Where do I keep my information?
  • Do I keep physical things or electronic versions?
  • If I store paper, do I have the space?
  • If I store paperless, do I have the access?

Make It Consistent

Once you find a system that works for you, stick to it. Being consistent makes it easier to be organized because organizing becomes second nature.

Make it Time Sensitive

It's not enough to keep your important files or documents stored for safekeeping. You should also remember that every piece of information is connected to a timeline. To make organizing files more comprehensive, you should consider arranging these based on dates and deadlines.

Setting Up Archives

The next is to set up an archive for documents that you need to keep for future use. The key here is to establish a reference system that allows you to sort through later when you need to find anything.

Module Seven - Organization in Your Work Area

In this module, you will learn how to increase productivity and better project management by developing good organizing habits and value techniques.

Keeping Items Within Arm’s Reach

Organization does not only help you keep track of everything but also makes you more efficient. By keeping items within arm’s reach, you save time which can be spent on other tasks.

Only Have Current Projects on Your Desk

Get rid of the clutter by only keeping projects that you are currently working on in your work area. To keep your desk organized, as yourself:

  • When does this need to be finished?
  • Is it something that can be completed later?
  • Has this already been completed?

Arranging Your Drawers

One way of organizing your drawers is to determine how this relates to your everyday routine.

Organize to Match Your Workflow

Plan and organize according to how you use items. Follow the tips below to get a better idea of how to organize your workflow.

  • Decide what tools you will need for the day
  • Determine if additional supplies are needed
  • Focus on that project or set of tasks for the day. Don’t try to mix in other things.

Module Eight - Tools to Fight Procrastination

Procrastination is one of the leading causes of disorganization. How many times have you've been guilty of making excuses so that we can put off tasks until later? In this module, we will take a look at the different tools and habits to help us get rid of procrastination sooner, rather than later.

Eat That Frog!

This expression advices us to finish our least favorite task first. This way, every other task that comes after is less likely to be as bad as the first one making them relatively easier.

Remove Distractions

After setting out to make your task list, distractions will always be there to make you lose focus and stop working. Identify all possible distractions and make a mental note to stay away from them. Ensure everything you need is organized and stick to your workflow.

Give Yourself a Reward

Rewards are a great way of reminding ourselves of a job well done. It doesn't have to big either. Start with small rewards when working on something, give yourself a break, or get a snack.

Break Up Large Tasks

We often think that we only have a few items on our list to find out that each task contains several tasks included within it. This can be frustrating and overwhelming. Don’t fall into the mistake of miscalculating how much time you have to finish a big task. Start small and start early.

Module Nine – Organizing Your Inbox

Your email inbox is the virtual counterpart of your filing cabinet or document drawer. Today’s email systems contain tools that help you sort and organize emails. When your emails are in order, you can stay on top of your incoming and outgoing mails and always have the information you need.    

  • Setting Delivery Rules
  • Folder and Message Hierarchy
  • Deal with Email Right Away
  • Flag and Highlight Important Items

Module Ten - Avoid the Causes of Disorganization

In this part of the Organizational Skill Online Certificate course, we will discuss the causes of disorganization and how to avoid it. When we make ways to stay organized part of our regular habits, we won't have a need to give in to reasons for disorganization.

Keeping Everything

Some of us are guilty of hoarding. We keep everything because we believe that these might be something we need in the future. In reality, saving every single document, especially expired items and paperwork, only leads to disorganization.

Not Being Consistent

Repetition is the key to learning. Being consistent leads to positive behavior, becoming second nature. Returning to the road of being disorganized can be a slippery slope. We start by forgetting simple things such as removing distractions (turning the phone to silent) until one day; we're back to our old bad habits.

Not Following a Schedule

For many people, not sticking to some routine or schedule can cause them to become disorganized and procrastinate. Create a schedule that is simple and flexible. The best schedules provide structured yet flexible enough to accommodate any emergencies.

Bad Habits

Sometimes bad habits have become second nature that we fail to recognize it for what it is. The first thing is to identify these bad habits and then make a decision to change.

Module Eleven - Discipline is the Key to Stay Organized

Organization doesn't happen overnight, and this isn't the easiest decision to make. It takes hard work, discipline, and lots of good habits to keep on the path of good organization. This is why the process can seem overwhelming at first and seem like a real challenge, but it doesn’t have to be impossible. With some of the following tips and techniques, we can feel more empowered to stay disciplined in your organization.

  • Stay within your systems
  • Learn to say No
  • Have organization be part of your life
  • Plan for tomorrow, today
