I adore this time of year. To me, September means new beginnings, new things to learn, new possibilities to explore. I heard an ad on the radio for a college program designed to help people who don’t fit the traditional structure. A student is heard saying: “It’s not that I can’t learn- it’s just that I learn differently”.
Learning differently-what a useful perspective!
People are not born with organizing skills – they learn them. Maybe your “teacher” taught you skills that worked for them but not necessarily for you. There’s a wealth of good information out there about various learning styles. Some folks are visual, some auditory, some tactile – each with a different way of learning, processing and remembering. A good organizer can help you figure out the style that works best for you and teach you organizing skills in the way you can best use them.
Imagine what your life would be like if you thought of yourself as a person who can be more organized if presented the skills in a way you could use them best instead of thinking of yourself as hopelessly disorganized. How much possibility do you open up with this simple change in perspective? Welcome to the season of staring fresh – let the shift happen!
