How Do You Make Organizing A Lifelong Habit?
Being organized is all about having the habits in place to maintain order. Being disorganized is all about having habits in place that inhibit maintaining order. As you go about your day, stop yourself and ask, “Am I finishing tasks that I begin?” I happen to be easily distracted and have to work hard to complete tasks. My husband is a task master, when he starts a project, nothing can stop him until it’s complete and every piece is properly put away. I, on the other hand, get distracted at a moments notice. I can fly from one thing to another without a second thought. I have to work to remind myself that I’ll be so much better off if I take the time to put everything away when I finish. I’ve used this quote with my children since they were very small, it’s a constant reminder to me and to them, “finish one project before you start another”.
