Being organised starts from small things. From simple steps,like,having the habit to put things immediately back to where it belongs. I trained my kids since they were toddlers. I start from simple steps,i teach them to put their toys right back at the shelf after they played with it. Now that they are grown ups...they can organize their things by their own. Being organized needs a little practice and lot of perseverance. If you can organized material won't be hard to for us to organized some decision and actions taken in life. Steps for being well organized always is...patience and love of what we are doing

I am organized if I really want to. There would be times I would be a of a mess but when I spend time organizing stuff and my time, I can be OC. If only I had my own house and my own everything then I shohuld be more organized than how I am currently.

Yes, i know what you mean. When you have your own house, you have so much pride in it, As it is yours to nuture and it's under your control. I'm also quite OC when i get into it!

LISTS!!! Nothing better! I make lists for everything I need to do. From phone calls to make to things to type to things I need to do or take care of. Sometimes they are long lists, but other times, not so long. These days with cell phones having memos and things like that.. my daughter will use that to remind her to do things but to me.. that is more trouble than it is worth! She has eventually stopped using it! But to have that list... right there in front of you...just makes you more inclined to do the things on the list. And to see them being crossed off and knowing you are getting things done, is just a good feeling. And to me is inspiring... "got three things done.. only four more to go" kind of thing. Another good thing.. sticky notes and the bathroom mirror! We use the bathroom mirror every day... off and on all day long... those reminder sticky notes have been so helpful to me... "doctor apt tomorrow"... I say why remember it if you don't have to! There are so many things that we have to remember...why clutter our brains with the little things that although are important are temporarily important!

My organization habits can range from being super messy right up to super neat. My work area is always messy and I always2x need to organize them properly and in the right section. That's because if not, I tend to miss certain things like an important document, sometimes even my bills too. I tend to mix up in the work area, LOL. I'd like to keep more organized in the near future.
