Chronic disorganization is a problem that many homes and workplaces face. When families and employees don’t have a system in place to take care of clutter, it shows. Things don’t go as smoothly as they should. Appointments are forgotten about and deadlines are missed.
Here are some of the things that threaten the sanctity of the home and workplace:
- Situational Disorganization. This scenario occurs when life takes its toll on you. An event beyond your control disrupts the normal flow of your day-to-day lifestyle. Although this type of situation can be remedied after the life event is over, it further compounds difficult scenarios because of the chaos it adds to home and work environments.
- Chronic Disorganization. Things around your home or workplace are in a constant state of upheaval. Nothing is ever in place and you spend a good part of your day trying to find things that you’ve lost or other people have lost. You have no awareness of time or how disorganization affects it. You’re always late, never sure of what you’re doing next, and constantly stressed.
- Historical Disorganization. Your upbringing was done in a disorganized household. It’s all that you know. No one has shown you how to put organizational systems in place or how to find the right teacher to help you learn how to do it. You’re disorganized yet comfortable with the chaos that ensues.
Disorganization proves to be a real problem when it disrupts the flow of your daily life. By taking charge of organizing your home and workplace, you set an expectation for others to follow. When they see how you manage your time and keep things neat and organized, they’ll realize they can do the same thing, too. The result is a cleaner, healthier home or work environment for you to spend time in.
