Staying Organized

Pexelsiphone_notesHow do you keep yourself organized? Everyone finds their own way. Our ways are on a continuum between order and chaos. What matters is to find the way that works best for you. Are you more productive in an ordered or chaotic state?

Some find that chaos stimulates their creativity. Others find that order allows them to keep their center. There are downsides of both order and chaos. They can each be used to avoid action and keep you unproductive. For example, a near constant state of chaos can keep you from getting anything meaningful done. Too much focus on order can keep you from getting into action. What are the downsides of each for you?

If you think of nature as a system, both chaos and order exist within it, each serving a purpose. Order keeps an ecosystem together. Chaos introduces change and growth. How does your ecosystem work best for staying organized? What’s your best balance between chaos and order?
