About half of my clients come to me because they want help for specific projects, like unpacking after a move, reorganizing a kitchen, overhauling a home office, making a garage more functional, or doing a closet refresh. The other half are affected by chronic disorganization. What is Chronic Disorganization (CD)? To meet the criteria for CD, first, the disorganization must have been a factor in your life for many years. Second, the disorganization must interfere with your quality of life or negatively affects your relationships with others. The third qualifying criteria is that the disorganization persists despite self-help attempts. If you think you or someone you love is affected by Chronic Disorganization, keep reading to see if the rest of this post rings true.
Check out the Institute for Challenging Disorganization Fact Sheet 001 (image below) created by Diane Hatcher, to determine if you may be experiencing challenges with Chronic Disorganization. Chronic Disorganization is unlikely to change without outside intervention, however anyone can be taught to increase his/her level of organization. You’re not hopeless! Work with me, or another professional organizer who is experienced and trained to help someone with Chronic Disorganization. It will save you tons of time and stress to help you find the most efficient solutions for you.
