Disorganization is stressful.

Always looking for something? Daily rituals streamline the to-do list. But first, do something you enjoy. Have a cup of tea in your favorite chair, read for 10 minutes.

Disorganization is costly.

At home or at work. 40% of Americans say that’s the main cause of late payments. They lost the bill, incurring late fees.

Here are some quick ways to de-stress among disorganization:

Set realistic goals.

Do three things that will make you feel as though your day was successful.

Prepare the night before.

Whatever you’re going to need for your appointments the next day. Clothes. Reports. Tools.

Eat the frog.

Do the hardest thing first. Open it. Pay it. File it. Done.


When you finish up, clean up.

Clear your brain.

Write down your goals — for the next day, the next week, the next month. Write it in one consistent spot.


When it gets to be too much. Find help. Organizing the Details would be happy to take the work off your plate.
