Monday Morning Motivation – Organized
Sharing Resources to Help You Grow Personally, Professionally & Financially
Sometimes it helps to get a little dose of encouragement—along with a good cup of coffee!—to start the day. Today we discuss "organized."
Hopefully, the message below will help you get off to a good start for the week. Please feel free to forward the newsletter along to others who you think would benefit from the content.
If ever a word were made for me, it would have to be “organized.” I joke with folks that I don’t have OCD tendencies but rather CDO tendencies—as CDO is properly alphabetized.
And while it’s easy to laugh at all the folks in the world who share my passion for being organized, it’s also the case that being organized is a highly valuable skill.
No doubt, like anything, being organized can be taken to an extreme where it is damaging. However, the ability to leverage limited resources is what makes being organized so powerful. Whether it is with your time, talent, or treasure, knowing what you have, where it can be applied, and how to apply it—once you find the right situation—is critical. And being organized helps you to get more out of less.
And, while I may sound like a broken record, the importance of being organized comes through in my favorite quote of all time from Jim Rohn:
- We must all live with one of two pains. The pain of discipline or the pain of regret.
There is no doubt that organization is discipline’s first cousin!
That brings us to this week’s question:
- What is keeping you from being more organized?
Thanks for sharing a bit of your time with me this Monday morning.
Have a great week!
