There are lots of myths going around when it comes to getting and staying organized.
Here are the top 7, along with the truths.
MYTH NUMBER 1: BEING ORGANIZED MEANS BEING NEAT.
While you can certainly be neat AND be organized, the two terms should never be confused with each other. While you might have NEAT piles, or NEAT boxes piled one on top of the other, or objects lined up NEATLY in a straight line, you may still not be able to find a single thing when you need it. Being organized means you’re using a structured system that allows you to find everything you need when you need it, and you get everything done when it’s due–without frustration, chaos or stress.
MYTH NUMBER 2: TO BE ORGANIZED IS TO BE CLEAN.
Once again, while you can be BOTH organized AND clean, those terms should not be confused. Cleaning means that you’re removing dirt, grime and otherwise preparing a sanitary surface. But, you can have the cleanest home or office on the block, and still be disorganized.
