Organization 101 EGuide
by: Mobile Reports • 3
If you are like most people today, you feel that you have too little time and too much to do.
As a result, you often end up not getting the things done that are needed to be done. And
even little things grow into a mountain of work that you feel you can never climb.
I used to be very unorganized. On all of my report cards that I received as a kid, the
teacher always made that cute little comment "needs to get organized." I had a desk that
was a mess at school and a room that was a mess at home. One day, the teacher
dumped out everything in my desk on the floor in front of the class and told me to pick it up.
I can still feel the sting of that humiliation.
My mother was not as cruel. She would clean my room so that the Board of Health didn't
come in and condemn our house. Both of these people tried to help me get organized,
but neither one of them really helped me at all. My teacher used drastic and humiliating
tactics that didn't work but just made me upset, and my mother did the work for me instead
of making me do it myself. It wasn't until I was an adult that I realized how to get
organized, why it was so important and how to teach my own children how they could stay
organized as well.
The purpose of this book is not just to tell you how to clean your home or desk so that
everything is where you can find it, but also how to organize your life so that it is easy to
manage and you do not feel overwhelmed. Although I eventually realized that it was
much easier to have my important papers at a place that I could find them and the value of
having a home that didn't look like a pigsty, my mind was unorganized throughout much of
my life. My kids were forever joining activities and I was forever driving them around to
different events after school while trying to maintain a job as well as my home. I often felt
like a hamster on a wheel. It wasn't until much later when I learned not only how to
organize my home and work place, but also my mind.
This book will teach you how to organize every aspect of your life - from your home, your
work and even your life. It will also teach you some valuable tips and teaching secrets
that you can pass on to your children so that they can learn the value of organization as
well. You will learn valuable lessons on organization that you can use to keep your life in
order and avoid feeling overwhelmed all of the time as well as read some anecdotes that
perhaps you can relate to.
It will also teach you how you can stay organized even when things occur that throw you
off your routine. We are not robots, we're humans. And as everyone knows, we have
things that come up that are unpredictable that can throw us off our kilter. You want to be
organized, but you do not want to be so rigid in that you cannot handle a break in the
routine without, as the kids nowadays say "tweeking out."
Organization is essential for you to live a healthier life in both mind and body. When you
feel as though you are well organized, you also feel as though you have more control in
your every day life. It makes those around you more comfortable and also lends to
harmony in the family. Why get a little organization in your life? The answer is simple -
to retain your sanity, make you more efficient and to also give some sort of structure to
your life and those around you.
No matter how unorganized you are, you can become the epitome of organization by
taking the tips from this book. The first step is to realize that you did not get overwhelmed
at once, it took months, years or even a lifetime for you to get to the state you are in now.
So sit back and enjoy reading this book. Remember that you have to take your
organization skills "one bite at a time" and start with small goals that will eventually lead up
to the big goal, which is having organization in your life, work and home. Trust me, if I can
do this, so can you.
