Eight Ways Not To Be Organized

  1. Don’t make lists.
  2. Don’t put things away after use.
  3. Jot reminders on post-its then forget where you put the post-it.
  4. Buy a planner but only use it for one aspect of your life.
  5. Put some reminders on smartphone that you forget to check.
  6. Make a list and then lose it.
  7. Start putting things away, but in the wrong place.
  8. Decide that you will put something important away in a place you’ll remember…and then forget.

I think that sums it up nicely, don’t you?

I am in awe of the organized people who have numerous tasks and get them done and never complain about having enough time. I don’t know one personally, but I am, nonetheless, in awe.

Sometimes I convince myself that I have too much going on and that’s why everything doesn’t get done. On the other hand, I also convince myself that if I were better organized, everything would get done.

Are you organized? Is there a secret? Can you share?

  1. I am fairly well organized. But that does not mean I get everything done. I have found it is important to prioritize. For example this past weekend I had a horse show; early mornings and long days. So all blogging and following of other bloggers was put on the back burner. That way I did not feel overwhelmed and could focus on my show and not feel guilty about not keeping up with the blogosphere.

  2. I make lists. I prioritize. Never finish, but I am organized and get the important things accomplished. I don’t have as much fun as other people do though.

  3. I think it’s all about what is most important. For instance, all my animals, including the wild ones I care for, always get taken care of. Every day. Everything else gets done on an as-needed basis. If it’s important (to you), it gets done.

  4. You blew it on the first one. Number one on your list is don’t make lists. Are you trying to destroy the universe? You can’t just throw around paradoxes like that.

    I’m fairly organized but time challenged. I have no concept of time. It’s like a bad relationship. We work independently of each other. Then, I look up, and she’s gone.

  5. I think I’m pretty organized. I make lists. I get some done. I tick them. I have a lot I take on. My problem is I value relaxation, fun and “slow downs” on weekends. There are also a couple of vices… if I can only discipline myself… so, is it organization or discipline? Hehe! πŸ™ˆπŸ€—πŸ˜˜β€

    1. I think for me it’s both. I’ve always had a discipline problem. When you have a problem with both…that’s when issues arise…that’s one thing I can be an expert on. lol
