Mission: Organization – A Simple Guide To Keeping An Orderly Life – 50 Quick Tips On Getting Organized Easily:
I’ve got to get my house office and personal life organized! When did you last speak these words? Was it when you recognized that you’re literally drowning under gobs of paper? Perhaps it was when you got a look of the enormous laundry pile that you can never seem to catch up on.
Maybe it was when you looked at all of the jumble in your kitchen, basement, bedroom, garage, den, front room and everywhere else. You might have even pondered tossing everything out the window! Was it when you urgently searched for those missing tickets? It may have been when you missed that crucial appointment. Or when that deadline sneaked up on you.
Perhaps it was when you recognized that you had enough To Do’s on your list to last you a lifespan. Was it when you urgently searched for that missing customer folder? Or even worse, it might have occurred when you determined you had no time left for yourself, your kinsperson, your acquaintances, that needed holiday and basically everything in life that you love to do. You’re not alone.
Those words have been expressed again and again by thousands of individuals all over the world. Disorganization may actually trap you into living a life filled with tension, frustration and bedlam. It may rob you of the precious time you ought to be spending enjoying your life. By defeating disorganization, you may be set free to live the sort of life you’ve always dreamed of. You deserve to be organized!
If you are like most people today, you feel that you have too little time and too much to do. As a result, you often end up not getting the things done that are needed to be done. And even little things grow into a mountain of work that you feel you can never climb. I used to be very unorganized. On all of my report cards that I received as a kid, the teacher always made that cute little comment “needs to get organized.”
I had a desk that was a mess at school and a room that was a mess at home. One day, the teacher dumped out everything in my desk on the floor in front of the class and told me to pick it up. I can still feel the sting of that humiliation. My mother was not as cruel. She would clean my room so that the Board of Health didn’t come in and condemn our house. Both of these people tried to help me get organized, but neither one of them really helped me at all.
My teacher used drastic and humiliating tactics that didn’t work but just made me upset, and my mother did the work for me instead of making me do it myself. It wasn’t until I was an adult that I realized how to get organized, why it was so important and how to teach my own children how they could stay organized as well. The purpose of this book is not just to tell you how to clean your home or desk so that everything is where you can find it, but also how to organize your life so that it is easy to manage and you do not feel overwhelmed.
Although I eventually realized that it was much easier to have my important papers at a place that I could find them and the value of having a home that didn’t look like a pigsty, my mind was unorganized throughout much of my life. My kids were forever joining activities and I was forever driving them around to different events after school while trying to maintain a job as well as my home. I often felt like a hamster on a wheel. It wasn’t until much later when I learned not only how to organize my home and work place, but also my mind.
This book will teach you how to organize every aspect of your life – from your home, your work and even your life. It will also teach you some valuable tips and teaching secrets that you can pass on to your children so that they can learn the value of organization as well. You will learn valuable lessons on organization that you can use to keep your life in order and avoid feeling overwhelmed.
Being busy will keep your mind off worry because you will not be thinking of two different things at one time. You can make good use of your time away from work to increase your knowledge of things and life, to work at a hobby or project, and then to relax and be content. This is good balance and when you are better balanced your are better organized. Perhaps you are a single parent and in a bit of a time crunch each day.
Make a point to sit and relax each day and plan. If you are careful you should be able to find just a few hours each day to apply yourself to being better organized. “I know of no more encouraging fact than the unquestionable ability of man to elevate his life by conscious endeavor.” – Henry Thoreau (1817-1862) Most of us use only a small amount of our true capabilities and we can all do so much more. You can learn new things.
This will give you new purpose in life and a feeling of achievement. Read nonfiction books to increase your knowledge of everyday things in life and to learn new skills or to improve on existing ones. All of this will help you to be better organized. The more organized you are the more time you will have for yourself.
As you become better organized, take on a new after hours project. Start with something small and work your way up to devoting more and more time to your project. Perhaps you can take on a new woodworking project, for example. Once you complete it, you will feel good about yourself and how you are spending your new, organized time.
