The psychologist told me that I had done one of the best jobs she’d ever seen of adapting my lifestyle to compensate for my struggles, without even knowing it!
So, that explains why I’ve been a chronic organization psycho for my whole life! I literally NEED to stay UBER organized in order to even function. Operations and developing systems has just always come naturally to me, even before I understood WHY.
One thing that wasn’t going so well: I remember her saying “I’ll bet you have a ton of different lists and notebooks.” Uhm…. Yeahhhhhhh…. She said “Narrow it down to ONE. You get ONE list. Your brain just can’t handle the lists being all over the place. Put it in one spot.”
I’m not even kidding when I say that I’ve spent the last 10 years trying to do just that. I’ve found some really great systems that work really well for me! I started with Google Keep, moved to Trello, then again to Click-Up. They’ve changed as technology has improved and as my needs have evolved. My whole world (business and personal) lives in Click-Up. Because that’s what works for ME, right now.
I also discovered another super fun tool recently… the Remarkable.
