In the book, The Procrastination Cure, Jeffrey Combs tells us that getting organized is very important, especially if you tend to procrastinate. If you find that you struggle to keep yourself organized, do not dismay. A lot of people are disorganized, and a certain amount of disorganization is normal.
You need a system in order to have a better chance to make things happen – a structure that organizes everything and creates an easy-to-follow process for you. Without a system, you’re constantly struggling with indecision and feelings of being overwhelmed. These days, creating lists and setting alarms to stay in track is a piece of cake with smart phones, but technology isn’t a magic bullet to making your goals magically come true. It can help you stay motivated, track your progress, and measure your success. Download an app that you feel comfortable with and use it to break down your day. Checklists also help you focus on taking one step at a time, so you avoid getting overwhelmed while still keeping sight of the big picture.
The author gives us an affirmation here “I am organized, organizing my life is easy.”
“The way you live and the way you operate usually are in direct proportion to the person you have become.”
Getting organized takes work—but it is a skill that anyone can master. Get organized today, move from Chaos to Freedom and take control of your life!
