Let’s be honest, most people don’t get excited about the prospect of getting themselves organized, unless they are professional organizers! But when you look at some of the reasons why you should get organized, you may have a renewed positive attitude towards the task.
#1: You will save money. How many times have you had to purchase a duplicate of something you knew you had but just couldn’t get your hands on when you needed it most?
#2: You can reclaim days back in your life. Even if you only waste a measly 15 minutes a day looking for things, you are wasting eight days a year out of your life. You could better spend that time on a vacation!
#3: You will project a more professional image of yourself. If you are missing deadlines for projects, late for meetings, losing call back numbers for clients, unable to locate important information when you are called upon to present it, then you are not projecting much of a professional image to your superiors, colleagues or clients, and more likely losing everyone’s confidence and respect.
So do yourself a favor and get organized, you will save yourself money, time and your career!
