If a person is completely disorganized is it possible to get organized?
I am a 'fly by the seat of my pants' type of person, who's life usually appears disorganized. Is it possible for me to change my ways and become more organized? If so, where should I begin?
Yes, you can change - if you want to. However, I've also read that being disorganized means that you're also the creative type. But of course, you can only tolerate some degree of clutter or disorganization. Perhaps "we" are among those people with high threshold for that. Still, it's possible to get organized when the occasion calls for it. We're not just so gungho about "order" like other people. We can manage to have "order" in chaos.
I agree with Leann.
I'm sure we can. I have changed many of my habits with a great determination when I knew I was on the wrong side, but with great difficulty. I have also considerably improved in my ability of organizing myself, again with great difficulty and determination.
To begin with, you can tell yourself from now on you're going to get organized, and stick to your own word.
It is possible but only if you want too. Where to begin? This depends on how messy you are. The only way to get this project done is to pick a room and go for it. I see those shows on TV were a crew goes in someones home, cleans it all up, everything looks good for the moment. I wonder how it would look a month from now?
I don't think it's possible. I like my "piles", to me, that's organized. If you mess with my piles or tell me to neatly tuck stuff away, I lose it. I could never marry a woman whose a neat freak.
It is for sure. You can clean and clean and clean all you want but soon enough it will get messy and unorganized again! It is because it takes so long to organize that there are somethings that just kinda get over looked and put neatly somewhere else. When you want it to be organized and final you have to look over everything and be prepared to throw out a lot of stuff. I threw out so much stuff when I finally organized my office and it actually felt good "less clutter" Before I would have kept it and looked over it later. Then consider later when you have to keep everything organized. Buy folders and baskets for certain things like I have a folder organized for months with mail I should hold onto for my records.
Also when I am at work I made up my own system. I organized it according to what function the papers serve and what order I have to do things in. I user sticky notes A LOT even if I think I would remember what is special about that certain thing.
A few months ago I was a disorganized mess!
The best way for a disorganized person to get organized is to work on their areas in a section by section manner. Whether that is section by section in one individual disorganized room or on a room by room basis. I think piece by piece is the way to get organized.
Although some of you may disagree with this - there are two types of 'disornanization's' 1. that type that really is and can't figure where anything is and 2. those that operate in 'disorgany' however they know where things are and to the outside world these people don't have a clue as to how us'ns operate in our 'disorganized' way.
I am also to a large extent a 'fly by the seat of my pants' for when the creativity flow - it flows.
Should you change - not if you can function and create.
Yuppers! You first have to think about the big picture and how you would like things to be. Then tackle one thing at a time and before you know it, it's all organized. I will tell you though, it takes time, energy, and money. Best of luck!
I don't think so, just like my Mom always was, to clean house I have to tear it up to get to every nook and cranny and then here is such a mess I never get it done.
Yes. They can turn things around. Completely disorganized people may secretly be perfectionists. They want things to be so right that they get lost in the process. Nothing happens and things start to get worse.
Yes, you can.
Start with writing down your daily goals and the ways to achieve them. And at night before sleeping, find out how many of these goals were you able to achieve.
Slowly and steadily, you will make a habit out of it.
