What does it mean to be organized?

So many people have New Year’s Resolutions to "get organized."  Just what exactly does that even mean?  Some people confuse being organized with being perfect.  Some people confuse being organized with being neat.  Neat people can be disorganized, believe me! What we teach people is that you should strive to be N.E.A.T.E.R.:

Not perfect, but…
Effective- doing what works best
Always improving
True to your style
Efficient- not wasting time
Ready for anything- being prepared

So many people’s resolutions fail because they have set unrealistic goals.  One of the mistakes we see people make is that they treat being organized as some kind of destination, instead of the continuous journey that it is.   There is no “perfect” place somewhere over the rainbow where things will just stay organized by themselves.   Just like dieters know, there is no such thing as successful “crash dieting”– you have to make permanent changes in your eating habits to keep the weight off.
