Ok, that is true, but it is also a very good idea to organize on your quest for happy.
And just to be 100% transparent,
I can tell you that if my husband reads that sentence he will laugh
because I am not organized.
That does not mean I don’t work on it

There are studies that suggest that a cluttered desk is the sign of a creative genius.
When I see this study in meme form it is usually accompanied by a picture of Einstein’s desk and a quote from him.
“If a cluttered desk is the sign of a cluttered mind, what is the sign of an empty desk?”
Albert Einstein
And he was a genius right?
Yeah, there is some doubt around here too, when I try to use that as an excuse.
Still, I try.

And then you twist just slightly to the left in your thinking and you can make the claim that sometimes chaos can save a life.

As the frog uses the grass so a mom can use the chaos in her home, right?
Yeah, ok that does not work out for me either.
But since we have established that I am not good at organization, I would like to point you to an excellent resource for organizing your time.
And really, I can see where the principles listed there can be used across the board.
He is the Time Doctor 
and he really does have some good lessons on organizing your time and productivity.

Once you go there, please, come back and tell me what you think.
