While some people find peace in a messy home or dis-organised workspace, other’s find it a major source of stress. From unpaid bills to juggling work commitments, dis-organised people feel as though life can be an uphill battle. Being organised can feel like a magical dream that many of us find difficult to achieve. But is being over organised truly as wonderful as it seems?
Read on to see three deep secrets of an over organised person.
1) Being over organised can have some GREAT advantages…
Let’s be honest. Being over organised means, you get more done. When you say you are going to move things off your desk, they get moved. If you agree to take on a project, it is always done on time – with bonuses. Being organised comes with a high level of integrity that can be seen in the work they produce. Those who are over organised are usually high achievers, and they always strive to be the best. If you need something done, hand it to someone who enjoys being over organised.
2) Sometimes we can be a little OCD…
Well, not OCD, but we may have OCD tendencies. From needing the house to be tidy to always working on a clean desk, over organised people can sometimes seem a little controlling or over the top if things aren’t in their most optimal state.
Some people can have 2356 emails left unread as a little notification on their phone. For organised people, this feels like the stuff of nightmares.
Over organised people will need to block out times in the day to manage these tasks in order to feel on top of everything. While it is always great to get things done, it can sometimes impede on your personal life if you are still worrying about things that you didn’t have the opportunity to finish.
3) An over organised person can drive others bonkers.
Do you envy people who seem to have it all together? Organised people can sometimes drive people crazy with their uncanny ability to always get everything done. On the other hand, unorganised people can make organised people frustrated when they allow things to get a little chaotic. Can an organised person and a dis-organised person, co-exist peacefully? Truthfully, we all need to accept others for who they are. Otherwise, you will need to choose who you spend your time with more carefully.
It can be incredibly draining and a bit of an overkill if you are always trying to vet out who is organised and who is unorganised. Over organised people need to set margins on what they are willing to accept. For example, set from Monday to Friday you do whatever you need to do to get your job done – this is your work week. Time management, planners, the works, you do whatever you need to do to be organised. Weekend – this gets put away and you will need to plan and practice doing this as it won’t come naturally.
It doesn’t mean you won’t be organised for your weekend it just means learning to let go of the ‘grip’ of how organised you are.
Are you wanting to be more organised but aren’t sure how? Or perhaps being over organised is impeding on your life as you have not yet learnt how to turn the dial down and relax sooner than later?
