There seems to be a lot of talk about organising recently. I’ve noticed that there are is a bit of confusion and misconception about what ‘being organised’ actually is.
It is common to group organising and cleaning together, as if they are one and the same. Or for people to conjure up images of an ‘organised person’ as one with an immaculately clean home and a thoroughly used day planner. These individuals can be organised – but the scope of organising is so much wider.
According to the online Collins Dictionary to organise is to “to arrange methodically or in order”.
Narelle Todd, AAPO President (http://AAPO.org.au), defines being organised very succinctly and I like her definition. Narelle states “Being organised has nothing to do with the cleanliness of your home or how often you use hand sanitiser. Being organised simply means being able to find what you want when you want it.”
There are many benefits to being organised. It can create calm, can reduce your anxiety or stress levels, give you more control over your life and most importantly can give you more time to do the things you enjoy doing.
