The business life of a professional organizer is that they help organize homes and offices, as
well as time management and productivity issues.
Many professional organizers are born with an organizing sense, but take that ability and continue education for certification in the field. Some, like myself, focus on also becoming certified in ADD/ADHD management and what affects a person with it
The majority of professional organizers are not hyper-organized, with every “i” dotted and every “t” crossed – we are real people. I was reminded of that as I looked around my office
today and realized it was totally cluttered. I had left a major office reorganization project midway through as I moved onto a huge home re-modeling project, and I had not disassembled my tools from a recent class.
So today the professional organizer has to follow her own rules, and organize her own office. Using the CFO system, and working while standing, I am going to reduce my clutter by
working on my visual clutter – what I can see.
I will use the CFO (Clear-Fast-Organized) system in two places:
1. I have a lots of different things piled on my desk, so I will be doing a desk rescue to get things sorted and back where they belong.
2. I will be going around the perimeter of a room, picking things up and asking “Why is this here, and where should it be?”
Though a professional organizer may look as if they never have a hair out of place, they are actual people who can get overwhelmed and let organizing fall to the wayside. That is one of the reasons a professional organizer can be helpful – they can relate to clutter getting out of hand
