This short blog is all about living with disorganisation. It also includes some hints and tips on how to be more organised day by day.
It Happens to Everyone
It might not feel like it but it sure does. You are not alone.
Everybody is disorganised at some point or another, it's human nature. To be organised one hundred per cent of the time is an impossible task so why create an impossible life for yourself? Perhaps start working with what you can do, and go from there?
Think about a typical day, or the most typical as they come. What is your routine? What are you good at? What works for you in getting through the day?
Whether its attending a regular place of work, participating in a gym class, being part of a sports team, travelling, helping friends or family, or even getting yourself out of bed each day - it all requires some sort of organisation.
Start by thinking of the things that you are good at, that you do each day by habit. You've got some of this stuff sorted already!
And if you feel like you aren't organised at all...don't worry. You can get there by making some small changes.
What does organised look like? How does it make your life better? Who are you making these changes for?
If you want to make a change, list out the top 3 things that you would like to be more organised in. For each one, list out 1 or 2 things that you can do to get there. Changes don't need to be big or take weeks to achieve. Small changes are just as valuable.

Hints and Tips
-Use a calendar to help plan ahead.
-Avoid distractions by blocking out your calendar. Find a time and place that works best for you to get things done.
-Write things down so you don't forget.
-Take some time out from time to time. Take a breath, and re-organise yourself.
-Prioritise your tasks and do them one by one.
For some, disorganisation works for them and that's OK. If you are happy as you are and your disorganisation brings you fun and happiness and is manageable day to day then why change? Perhaps it's not disorganisation at all?
