This down-on-yourself attitude gets in the way of actually cleaning up. Even small changes can make a big difference.
Accept that you'll never be perfectly neat. And that' s ok.
They’re really helpful resources.
Maybe your super organized co-worker will share the rules she sets up in her inbox. Or maybe try setting up a calendar with a neat co-worker that you both share to keep yourself accountable.
Once in a while make sure you do a big purge: donate and recycle the stuff that no longer fits you or you don't use anymore.
Don't get too sentimental. It's the only way to a tidier you.
Every single item that you own should have a place, wether is a business card, a snack or an email.
This will reduce significantly the clutter of your life.
While most of us strive towards neatness, being super organized and tidy isn’t always possible. Being unorganized and messy, on the other hand, comes easy to most.
Studies are pointing out a link towards being messy and being creative, with chaos and clutter fostering new connections and creative insights.
Some people do the least to get just enough benefit. They can work hard, but only for a short amount of time. They always procrastinate with everything from cleaning to their job.
Doing the bare minimum at the last minute isn't lazy. It is a choice.
Acting without first reflecting can make things worse. Regularly reviewing how you spend your time will give you insight into how you got to your present state, how to move forward strategically, and how you work best in general.
Make time for quiet reflection or journaling. Think about or write what stresses you, why something isn’t working, or when during the day you’re most productive.
