When I run across articles I want to read, I put them on Pocket to read later. If an article or a blog post has “How to Be Organized” as a title, I’m going to read it. I’m a great believer in being organized, but you wouldn’t believe it if you ever saw my office. I am constantly struggling with myself to put it up, put it away, put it back, clean it off, label it, or find its place. It’s a constant daily battle.
The other day, I read all the articles on organization. To my surprise, they were all the same. To my further surprise, they were absolutely worthless.
Here’s the advice for organizing your pantry.
Oh, it’s the same for organizing your closet.
And, it’s also the same for organizing your office.
1. Take everything out.
3. Put everything back in an organized manner.
Please, I do that every week. I wanted something I’d never read. Some hints on how to stop being a pack rat and piling my desk with paper. I wanted secrets! I wanted tips! I KNEW to take everything out, clean, and put it back.
Or maybe I just wanted to wave my magic wand and have someone do it for me. Yeah, that’s it.
How about you? Are you naturally organized, or do you have to work on it constantly like me?
