Let's  take this Two Minute Organizing Quiz. Because I want you to take this quiz honestly, I will ask you to answer the questions honestly first before looking at the meaning of your scores. 

This post is intended for you to assess yourself on how good you are at doing the "organizing" stuff. But if you are not, don't despair, I will keep posting DIY and Self-help organizing tips here. So you can come back or subscribe. 

So, first off, let me tell you. I am not writing this because I am excellent at organizing. But I am starting to get organized and I love the benefits, I have accomplished things, way more than I have imagined. And I want to share the benefit of increased productivity mainly because, I started to get organized. 

Now, take a small piece of paper and a pen or pencil. Just write "Yes" or "No" for each of the 10 questions asked. This is a simple one.

Here we go.

  1. I feel in control of my office.
  2. I immediately put things where they belong.
  3. I keep a well-organized filing system.
  4. My projects move forward well.
  5. I keep my email in-box cleared.
  6. All inappropriate, broken, and non-working things are gone.
  7. My calendar or planner works well for me.
  8. The papers on my bulletin board are fresh and current.
  9. My furniture looks good and works well.
  10. I balance my work and family life.
Now that you've honestly answered the questions, let's take a look at what your score means. Do you think you have what it takes to be organized? Are you already organized a person? Are you struggling to get organized?

Tally five points for each "yes".

50-40 points - Congratulations! You're doing really well! May you stop and share with this blog's readers your tricks? Please? :-)

39-30 - Doing good! Make a few key improvements and you'll be a much happier camper, producing work much more efficiently.

29-20 - Help is on the way. Apply the technique I am sharing here. You can view some tips from this post where I gave the clutter-causing personality with their quick fixes.

19-1 - Keep this blog on your favorites. Bookmark this! But seriously, it really is your lifeline to sanity and productivity. Slowly address your areas of greatest need and your office will become your best business partner. Otherwise, you are sunk! I suggest you start here.

I'd love to know what you think of this post:
