Feeling disorganized is no fun: Being disorganized, even less so. Yet so many of us stumble on, lamenting to friends and family that our lives are so chaotic.
We have so many reasons for not making the changes we need. We think it’s down to all the circumstances in our lives: The two preschoolers we’ve been wrangling (except that they are now in school); the aging parents we’ve been helping (which leaves us too exhausted the rest of the week for proactive activity); the kids’ extra-curricular activities that seem to eat up the week in a flash…
When you put all these reasons together, you see there’s one common thread in this theme: You’re not making time for you. (Or if you do, it’s collapse-time!)
So you struggle on in your business, trying to learn that course you invested in before eventually putting it on the back burner, rushing to get a project out to a client (and immediately get started on the next one), or just plain procrastinating because you feel overwhelmed and tired. Perhaps even a little confused about what you should be doing next.
The big danger of being disorganized is that it becomes a habit. Breaking habits don’t happen through thinking and agonizing about it. Breaking habits happen when we take action.
If you really want to get your business back on track (and make it feel fun again), a really easy way is to start by organizing your office—for maximum productivity!
