Time spent organizing saves more time in the long run.
"Time is really the only capital any human being has, and the one thing he can't afford to waste."
– American inventor Thomas Edison
Do you waste much time during your day due to disorganization?
Perhaps you spend 5 minutes searching for a misplaced file, another 5 looking for an email detailing an important meeting, and perhaps 10 minutes more finding today's to-do list, lost in the piles of papers on your desk. Before you know it, you've spent an hour throughout the day looking for things you can't find. And that's just one day! Imagine how much time you're losing each week, each month, and each year!
Many people struggle with disorganization. And, while some think they can succeed amidst the chaos, this disorganization can end up costing a high price.

It can block our creativity, add stress to our lives, and prevent us from being as productive and effective as we could be.
In this article, we'll look at some strategies for getting organized, so that we can start living and working to our full potential.
