Are you an organizationally challenged small business owner? These 6 steps to getting organized will help you get a grip.

One of my biggest challenges as a small business owner is getting organized—it’s something I’m always trying to get better at. Apparently, I’m not the only one pursuing this goal. In a recent study by Office Depot, 83 percent of small business owners say a well-organized office is important to a business.

What’s more, nearly two-thirds (63 percent) believe that the more organized the office, the more profitable the business. Specifically, small business owners say organization is essential to meeting deadlines on time and finding information quickly.

If you’re organizationally challenged (or just want to get better organized), here are some tips that work for me.

  1. Know thyself.
  2. Develop a plan.
  3. Arm yourself with the right tools.
  4. Go digital.
  5. Get help.
  6. Stick with it.
