If you’re like most of us, you squander a LOT of that precious resource every single day.
Did you spend a minute or two looking for your keys today? That time came out of your stash, gone forever. Bet you would’ve preferred to spend that bit of time on something else!
How about that very important paper you were trying to ferret out from the mess on your desk. Sheesh! Five minutes gone forever (and a bit of a blood pressure spike, too!).
Those are little things, admittedly. But they can sure add up. Add up all of those ‘little things’ over the course of a lifetime, and that sum will represent a horrendous squandering of time.
And though the lack of organization can cause you to lose lots of precious time, there’s some collateral damage involved, too.
According to the World Health Organization, lack of organization is one of the key causes of stress at the workplace. Workplace stress is a direct contributor to a host of physical and psychological problems.
And just think back to the last time you were in a frantic hunt for your car keys. The clock was ticking, you were late, and you needed to leave RIGHT NOW! Couldn’t you just feel the stress building up in you like a mainspring being wound to the point of bursting?
It’s Worth Investing a Bit of Time in Organizing…
If there were something you could do to add value to your life – value worth more than the bank account of the richest man on the planet, you’d do it, wouldn’t you? So why not start paying a bit more attention to that humdrum, every day word: organization?
Because when you think about it, that word is mighty powerful. Using it can pay dividends worth more than all of the gold on earth.
Until next time…
