A conundrum I’ve been trying to figure out lately is if I am organised or not. If you ask my husband, I bet he’d say I’m not! And I think that is my natural state (if we have such a thing). But the flip side is that I’ve done so much research and project work that I have a significant set of organisational skills. But are skills really “you”?
The ponderance of all of this started when I was thinking about my hiatus from Bloggers and Bacon. I like to batch write and create content. It works so well for me. When I’m in “the zone” I can create a metric shit-tonne in a very short period of time.
The problem with creating so much in a short period of time, and then scheduling it, is that there’s no “active” participation required from me to make it all actually happen. So I tend to forget to check on things and it makes it all very disengaging. But if I was to NOT batch create, I’d probably forget to create at all.
Daily type routines don’t really work for me. I clearly have a crappy immune system (oh and guess what? two weeks after having tonsillitis, I have it again) & frankly saying X day is for Y activity just makes me feel like I have to feel good enough that day to do it. And, especially based on 2017 so far, that just isn’t something I can guarantee.
What actually is the intersection between organisation skills and organisation nature? Are you organised? Have you learned to be organised?
