33 Reasons Why You Can’t Get Organized

How many times you try to get organized, and the results are not much different from your previous experience?

Have you ever said to yourself, “If only I could get organized”? Probably, the answer will be many times. Then why we can’t, or simply we want to escape to get organized in the right way?

That sentence if we only have organized we will do everything is every day around us. But, we have too many distractions, too many unexpected things, too many ways to problem-solving, too many approaches, too much different stuff…

Organized people are more productive people because they know what they need to do, why they need to do and how they need to do. That knowledge will enable them to do what they need to do more quickly than persons who don’t know what they need to do, why they need to do and how they need to do that.

Here, I want to share one of my brainstorming lists with 33 reasons why sometimes simply I can’t get organized.

1. You don’t have the time to get organized.

2. You have too many things to do before starting to get organized.

3. You can’t afford to get organized.

4. There are too many unexpected kinds of stuff that will destroy my organization.

5. You are naturally disorganized, and you haven’t a wish to change.

6. You don’t know what you want.

7. You don’t know where to start.

8. You want to stay in the comfort of the current status quo situation.

9. Procrastinate and you will get organized tomorrow.

10. You’ll be organized later.

11. You don’t know what’s the inputs need for the results.

12. You don’t know what the output should be.

13. You don’t know what you need to do.

14. You are afraid to be organized and finish the job.

15. You are not focused enough.

16. You haven’t done it before.

17. You don’t have the knowledge.

18. You don’t know what your passion is.

19. You are a better thinker than a doer.

20. It’s too hard.

21. Nobody will care.

22. Your environments aren’t ready to hear this.

23. Your family won’t let you get organized.

24. There’s no R.O.I.

25. It’s not important enough.

26. You are not ready for success.

27. If you succeed, your responsibility will change.

28. You can’t have enough commitment right now.

29. You don’t want to commit to scheduling.

30. You’ve already tried before, and nothing.

31. You don’t have a proper space for your work.

32. You can’t stop doing what you are doing right now.

33. Everything is perfect as it is now.

Some of the sentences in the list can be seen as true reality, but they are not, and can’t be used as justification for our unsuccessful efforts to get organized.

Do you have some of these reasons to escape from organizing yourself?
