If you’re determined to be more organized this year, don’t make the all-too-common mistake of expecting it to happen all at once.

“People decide they are going to overhaul their lives in January and they are going to do it all at one time,” says Regina Leeds, who has written nine books on organization, including One Year to An Organized Life. “That is setting yourself up for failure.”

Organized people aren’t born; they’re built. Here are the habits that you can cultivate to be just like them.

We all know that one friend or coworker who is super-organized. The person who is punctual, finishes projects with time to spare, and always knows exactly where to find what they need when they need it.

Instead of hating that person, why not figure out how they do it?

“Organized people are not born; they’re built,” says John Trosko, founder of OrganizingLA, a Los Angeles-based organizing firm. “The people who emerge as ‘organized’ use a variety of tools and methods to accomplish their goals and priorities in life.”

Their systems become habits, says Trosko. Here are seven things organized people do on a regular basis to stay on top of it all:

Face it: it’s January. Dreary weather is matched only by the dreariness of a house stripped of holiday decorations.

Children slog through the great dull stretch between New Year’s Day and Spring Break, no longer distracted from their schoolwork by the excitements of the holiday season.

December’s crowded calendar gives way to January’s social slump. Video rentals soar as comfy sweats replace dress clothes on Saturday nights.

Take heart! There’s another side to January!
