May 20, 2023: Organization

I’m not the most organized person. I’m not necessarily a messy person, but organization has always eluded me. The problem is, I’m getting older, and my memory, not great for small details to begin with, needs all the help it can get.

I’ve been trying a few techniques at work for about a month, and it has helped. Something as simple as writing down my to-do items, especially as they come up during meetings, has been an incredible help. I used to rely on my memory to keep all these tasks straight, and it was just not working anymore. Also, sending myself emails with reminders, and (politely but firmly) requesting people email me with their questions or requests so I can see them when I’m at my desk, has been huge.

Now I’m working on organizing myself at home. I’ve started following some cleaning and organization accounts on Instagram and YouTube, and I’ve picked up a few great ideas on how to better make use of space in the kitchen, how to clean more efficiently, and how to stay motivated when it seems the mess will never end. This weekend, I invested some money on items that will help me on this journey, and I look forward to the results.
