Make the time to organize your desk, your workplace, your house and home office.

You don’t have to have time to get organized, you have to make time to get organized. 

So, where do you get the time when you are already on overload? Where do you get extra time when you already don’t have time to do all of the things you are suppose to  The answer is simple.  You have to shave time off of your existing schedule to create time to take care of your life. 

Starting today, set aside 15 minutes to STOP... and think about the area you want to organize.  Is it cluttered because you don’t take the time to put things away?  Is it cluttered because you don’t have a place for everything? Is it cluttered because you have too much to do and too little time?

Is the problem inattention...  you just don’t have another minute to think about your organizing project?

Is the problem the lack of a plan... you know what you want, you just don’t don’t know how to get it there?

Or is the problem simply a lack of implementation... you just don’t have the time (you just have not made the time) to get yourself organized?

Starting today, make a commitment to  set aside a specific amount of time everyday to get your life in order.  15 minutes daily is better than 2 hours per week.  It keeps you focused, and forces you to give some thought to the solution every day.

And while you’re at it, check out the book: Making Time Work for You by Harold Taylor  

If you never do it, it will never get done.
