In seeking to better understand the situation, consider the following:
- Disorganized people know they’re disorganized. They lose things. They’re late for meetings. They frequently feel as if they’ve let someone down.
- Chances are they’ve struggled with it their entire lives.
- They’re just as frustrated over their disorganization as others are.
- They find comfort in knowing they’re not the only ones who struggle with disorganization.
- Disorganized people almost always want to change; they just don’t know where to start.
- Disorganized people won’t make changes until they’re ready; until it’s their idea. They’re actually more successful in the long run if they wait to do it on their own terms.
