How Can I Enjoy Organising?

Chaos!

You’ve felt it. Most likely we all have. It’s the creep of inertia along your neck. You’ve navigated life with a reputation for procrastination, being late and scraping deadlines. Now you’re settled into adulthood, your reputation has served you; you’ve sort of accepted it. It’s fine. This is me. I’ve created an okay life. I’m not dead yet and everything’s good. 

I’m here to fly the flag of radical change. Putting forth the arguments as to why organisation is the necessary and most sensible course of action should you want to qualm chaos. 

I will warn you. As a procrastinator, these propositions will come with substantial resistance. Push through it though. It will be worth it. 

The beauty of being more organised is that it turns life into a game as opposed to a burden. 

It hems anxiety and sews in confidence. It’s like multivitamins for responsibility. 

I’m a contributor. I’m also fiercely independent with a burning itch to dismiss authority. Had you suggested a few years ago that I should implement some form of order, I would likely have slapped you around the chin. 

Rules? Me? 

“I can’t be controlled by rules. My daily habits channel universal commands. I’m a drifter; punk to the core. I go where the wind blows. I can’t be controlled by precincts and no organisation can change that!”

I was also terribly anxious at this point, I couldn’t figure why? 


Nowadays, I lean hard on routines. It’s actually what keeps my fire burning. And if life is burning well? Words just crumble out, It’s the ash of my life force. 

My point is that by administering order I have applied a calm to the chaotic nature of everything. One baby step at a time.

Starting by waking up at the same time daily. This is the easiest way for your brain to regulate hormone production. Already 10% happier!

I would procrastinate because I didn’t know where to start. I masked my incompetence as a preference to be free-spirited. In reality, I was drowning in my inability to cope. 

Being at Collctiv has now strengthened my bond with this lifestyle. I would owe friends and family money for a copious amount of things. As a money pools app, Collctiv is the first step in remedying that. I wish I had access to that then. 

Creatively now I thrive. My output has increased; the spirit of Kurt Cobain is not frowning on me because I pre-prepared a chilli for lunch this week. It’s more rock 'n' roll than ever!

This universe still loves me; I’m going to be okay. 

To live is to suffer. To organise is to tame the beast.
