Lists, Clutter, Interruptions, E-mail ... Arrrrgh!

Getting Organized Has Big Pay-offs

The Globe & Mail recently published an article I found to be particularly pertinent to the increasing challenge of keeping up in this busy world. January 17 is seen by many to be annual “Give Up My New Year’s Resolutions Day” but with a little determination, anyone can decide to make choices, take action and stick with it to make a very real and beneficial difference in their life. Getting organized has big pay-offs in creating and maintaining a balance between your work life and personal life.

The Globe and Mail article is well done. It provided statistics on just how big an impact being disorganized can have in our lives, from lost productivity to the exhaustion we feel from the volume of tasks we have to deal with.

As a step toward getting organized, Canada, Italy and the United States lead all other countries in percentage of citizens who keep at least one to-do list to stay organized. All three are above the 75% mark. If only there was a better way to work with our to-do lists. Projecteze is not only a better solution, it is a fantastic solution…and one that the citizens of these three countries could stand to benefit from.

Whether it’s finding the motivation at this pivotal time of the year to clear the clutter in your life or just plain get more organized on all fronts, I encourage you to read this well written article by Jennifer Myers called “Lists, clutter, interruptions, e-mail ... Arrrrgh!” She provides some excellent suggestions.

Myers also directs you to Tennessee-based DME Consulting & Training where you can complete a "cost of disorganization" calculator.

Surviving and, in fact, thriving in today’s busy world can be made so much easier with a good, simple system that helps you stay on top of everything. Once you get there, the overwhelm subsides and you can create space to truly enjoy the life you were meant to live. But it all depends on where you set your own personal boundaries and just how determined you are to honor them which will be the topic in a future blog.
