According to Odette Pollar, in Organizing your workplace: a guide to personal productivity, people are not born organized. There is no genetic predisposition toward labeling and classifying systems.
Organizing is a skill that is easy to learn.
It is actually easier to be organized than to be disorganized and there is no better time to get started than right now. Create a list of the benefits of being more organized.
Let's see some of them:
> more control over your life;
> others can find information when you are away;
> freedom from chaos;
> have more time;
> and so on......
You can add as many as you wish. And during this cleaning out process, be sure to focus on the benefits of working smarter.
Think about how much better you will feel when you are able to locate items you need the first time you look for them. You will be more comfortable, in better control of your work and will feel less anxiety.
