As much as I try, I’ll admit that I am lacking in the organization area. My desk is covered in sticky notes among other random sheets of paper, half of which I don’t know what they are. If it wasn’t for the search on my PC I’d lose so many files just for the fact that sometimes I don’t organize them into folders on my computer properly.
With the problem of organization being quite large, there have been many companies trying to help by creating apps, reminder programs, and alerts for your cell phones and computers. Although they can be very helpful, sometimes they’re just not enough.
