Everybody’s taking quizzes on Facebook nowadays. Well, I took one myself yesterday.
“If you answer Yes to the following questions, you are chronically disorganized…
– Has getting organized been a challenge for you most of your adult life?
– Does being disorganized negatively affect your quality of life in some way every day?
– Have you been unable to sustain organization?” (Taken from the book Conquering Chronic Disorganization by Judith Kolberg)
Yes! Yes! and YES!
I LOVE this book!!
I have ready many a book on decluttering and organizing in my life, but this is the first one I read that was written for someone whose mind does not operate well on conventional/traditional organizational methods. It’s a short, easy read, and instead of writing theory, the book is literally just a collection of stories that exemplify various organizing techniques for the chronically disorganized. For example, I had no idea that you could file your papers emotionally! I have now constructed my first “shifting time” board. I am super excited and will reread this again before I give it back to the library.
I would highly recommend this for anyone who has tried to fit their lifestyle and organizational methods into a system someone else premade and has been unable to maintain it. This book suggests inventing ways to manage your life in a fashion that suits your mind’s bend, based on your learning style and needs. Great read, Conquering Chronic Disorganization by Judith Kolberg. Check it out! I shall let you know how my experiments turn out!!
