I HATE not being able to find things. Like, if I were sitting down to write this blog post and I couldn't find my notes for it right away, I'd feel grumpy, and I'd probably make a face, and maybe mumble something rude, and then look around for my notes - but only for so long.
I've got no patience for looking for things I've "misplaced."
I'm much more likely to huff my way out of the room and go do something else instead. So for me, being organized helps keep me away from these feelings of frustration and from not doing the work I need to do.
You're probably thinking, "But, I'm lazy - I don't want to spend the time getting organized in the first place."
I TOTALLY hear you. Getting your ducks in a row takes some time, and it takes some effort, and it takes some thinking. But it can save you so much time in the long run that those of us who hate extra work can't afford not to consider it.
And it doesn't have to be painful.
Get some help, put on your favorite tunes (I love disco for this!), imbibe an adult beverage, and tackle just one small area at a time. You'll be amazed how productive you'll feel when you're done - and how smart you'll feel when you realize how lazy you can be in the future.
