Organizing Success Secrets

Three enticing words: organizing, success and secrets. Individually they conjure up many interesting thoughts. Organizing makes us think about order, action or calm. Success brings ideas of triumph, completion and achievement. Secrets connote information, privilege or mystery. Strung together as a phrase, these words present the promise of something extraordinary.

Many of us would love to know organizing success secrets so that we can magically transform our lives. You’ll notice that secrets are plural because there are as many ways to view organizing success as there are ways to achieve it.

Here are my Top 10 Organizing Success Secrets:

  • Develop a positive attitude
  • Visualize the results of your organizing efforts
  • Prepare
  • Use lists
  • Take action
  • Enlist help
  • Lessen the clutter
  • Master the minutes
  • Delegate
  • Rejuvenate

You many already be incorporating some of these core concepts into your life. As you begin to combine all the ideas, your potential for achieving your organizational goals increases dramatically.

While I subscribe to many of these items, most recently I’ve focused on rejuvenation. The last part of the summer has been filled with days for not doing much. I’ve managed to catch up on sleep, have days absent of any specific plans, spend time in the sun and various water bodies, read a lot and enjoy hanging out with family and friends.

What organizing success secrets work for you?

All this presupposes that one is not suffering from the Depression and/or Anxiety that USUALLY accompanies ADD/ADHD. As an adult sufferer, telling me to "develop a positive attitude" is tantamount to telling me to grow a third arm. You and your Pollyanna bullshit are worthless.

I'm sorry that you are in so much pain and appreciate your candidness. What I write will not speak to everyone. I know that. I hope that you find what is helpful for you. Wishing you only the best as you navigate your journey.
