O is for Organization - #AtoZChallenge


Today's word is ORGANIZATION...

For those that know me say I’m an organization nut. My mind thinks in a more detailed and concise manner when my desk and files are organized. Everything has its place, so when someone asks me for something I can readily put my fingertips on it or email to them in moments. My latest craze for the last year is scanning all hard copy files within our department and shredding them once I have reviewed the accuracy of each file. It has already proven to be priceless when our department head requested documents on a specific topic and I was able to search by that request and presto I found what he needed quite quickly.


How do you keep yourself organized? Thanks for visiting!

  1. That's a great skill to have. Takes a lot of work to scan and make those doc online. Very satisfying too am sure!
    I am not very organized, but I would like to be and keep trying to improve.

    1. It is challenging to make sure the docs are scanned clearly and I have no typos in the descriptive details. Thanks for visiting!

  2. I like to have everything in it's respective location as well, Donna! Though sometimes there does seem to be a creative disorganization to my organization--or so my husband says:)

    1. I hear you on that one! As long as no one touches my desk at home I'm good.

  3. I have spats of being organised. Sometimes, I am extremely organised and other times, total disarray. Great post.

    1. It all depends on the day and my mood for organization.

  4. I have Asperger Syndrome and so being organized enough to get my writing done is a big difficulty for me. I find I have to accept my limitations and not force myself to be hyper-organized. Just having separate places to dump papers from different writing projects is a big leap forward for me.

    1. I do enjoy a clean desk. If it's stacked with too many projects I don't even know where to begin.

  9. I'm not super organized, but I use to-do lists and try to keep things neat. The clutter makes it hard to think and know where to start.

  10. Clutter definitely makes me jittery.

  11. I gotta confess: I enjoy nourishment much more than organization. As usual, I'm a day late! But that's okay, I sense Peanut Butter only a couple days away. (Hey, a guy can dream right. I'll be okay if it's Pepsi.)

  12. I also believe that a cluttered desk reflects a cluttered mind.Apart from that I like to keep things in place.
