Are Your Pencils Sharpened? Are Your Ducks in a Row?
Any Life Coach or Career Coach worth their salt will tell you that part of making great things happen in your life depends on your ability to be organized, at least to a degree. You may be blazingly talented and creative but if you can’t manage your self, your possessions, your tasks and your time well enough, you are going to flounder.
Likewise, if you are stressed, preoccupied, or feeling overwhelmed with all of the details you have to manage, you are not going to feel very happy OR be present in your relationships.
Learning how to get organized and stay that way is a foundational life skill: Your ability to keep your self together is the platform from which you build great things — occupationally, creatively, and relationally. (Don’t even ask me how many marriage counseling sessions I’ve sat in where the focus of the entire conversation was around one person’s inability to get places on time).
Furthermore, when you’re disorganized it makes you feel anxious and out of control. Small tasks that should be easy start to feel hard because you can’t find basic tools to accomplish them. (Like a stamp …Or your shoes.) Little things become big things, procrastination carries you away, and all of a sudden you feel overwhelmed.
