A Disorganized Procrastinator’s Guide to Time Management and Getting Organized
Do you have piles of paper surrounding your desk? Do you have boxes of paperwork to go through in the attic, inside closets, in the corner of your office that need to be organized? Are your computer files a disorganized jumble of text files and Word documents full of ideas that you will never find again? Do you have many plans and ideas that you just never get to? Does the idea of getting organized make you uncomfortable and a little bit nervous? If so, then this guide is for you.
Getting organized is an important factor in beating procrastination. The first thing you need to do is figure out your organizational style. Even as a disorganized person you have an organizational style. Trust me. Knowing your own personal organizational style will help you avoid choosing methods that won’t work for you.
