Are you an organised person?

Not me.

I’m just not wired for organisation. My brain doesn’t work that way. I’m wired for creative thinking.

That’s cool with me because I accept my weakness and play to my strengths.

The problem is, the world is set up for organised brains. And I need to live in this world. #creativeunorganisedbrainsunite

So this month I’ve been on a mission to find organising tools that can support my weakness. Here are my four favourites.

1. Organise fitness – trying to find time to get to the gym has proven fruitless. So I’ve brought the gym to me. This way I can exercise and research, read or watch a great TED talk at the same time (or indulge in a vampire movie).

2. Organise thoughts – so many ideas rumbling around in my brain. So many projects on the go. So I’ve discovered Evernote an organising software program – totally in love with the web clipping function.

3. Organise work – a new whiteboard. Those that know me know that I love a whiteboard. I saw this one at a client’s office and had to have one. Creative planning and working away!

4. Organise Nutrition – with so little time I have had a tendency to grab take out or miss meals altogether, with my health and my waist-line taking a hit because of it. So I’ve gotten into a bi-weekly Sunday cook up. Casseroles, currys, rice, chicken and sweet potato are my favs to freeze. Along with breakfast muffins (gluten free and full of veg) – yum and quick.

Not sure which one I love the most 🙂
