New World Order

Feb 12, 2015

Three appointments, six missed calls, and twenty five pages of documents to cover all before noon, but the only thought on your mind is: “Where did I put those keys…”

We all know that life can be hectic, and it’s times like these where a little bit of organization can go a long way. Beyond just a room or desk space, maintaining a neat lifestyle can lend itself to higher productivity and balance. With just a few minimal adjustments, things can go much more smoothly and efficiently.

Dedicating space for important objects is a necessity. Having a specific placement or pocket for a set of keys or wallet will increase your awareness of the object, and is simply accomplished through micro organization. By introducing a catchall to your nightstand, or a bag within a bag, items are separated and are more easily accessible. Rather a bunch of loose change in the bottom of a bag or pocket, a small pouch keeps it all together and prevents any loss.

Having a favorite or special piece is also a smart way to keep track of objects. The more you care about something, the more likely you are to pay attention to its whereabouts and put it to use. Instead of having a bunch of cheap pens constantly going missing, perhaps the investment in a writing utensil you truly love is a smart alternative. This way, not only are you constantly aware of the item, but you enjoy using it as well.

Whether a space or bag is messy or neat is entirely up to preference, but knowing where certain things are is an important quality to maintain. Easily accomplished and constantly rewarding, simple organization is the key to keeping balance and staying on top of your day to day life.
