Good organizational skills can prove beneficial in any area of your life. Organization can increase a person’s general productivity, project management, and can even affect their memory and retention skills. These skills are not acquired overnight – it will take a lot of practice and patience. But with a little guidance and the right tools, anyone can learn how to stop hunting for missing things and become better organized.
One of the hardest parts about getting organized is sifting through and getting rid of the things that cause distractions and take up space. When you find yourself among the stacks and piles of stuff and items, it can seem overwhelming. By taking it one step at a time, and remembering to breathe, you can begin to de-clutter your life and start on the path to successful organization.
Sometimes we can feel overwhelmed about taking on the task of removing our clutter and tend to make excuses as to why it doesn’t get done. We can claim that we don’t have the time, or that there is too much to do at once. But as Nike says, we have to “Just Do It” and we have to throw away our excuses and dive in. Make a plan on how you can get started, such as making a ‘cleaning calendar’ or choosing an area to start on. Stick with your plan until the job is complete, and don’t let the same excuses hinder your success
