how developed are your organizational skills? what do you enjoy organizing? are you a systematic creature, or do your solutions vary from production to production?
i enjoy organizing things that require complex analysis, but i rarely have the mental capacity to follow through with my projects. if the task is thrilling or the reward great enough i can manage. recently i produced a spreadsheet analyzing cost ratios among several companies i do contract work with. it has already proved useful, but i doubt i'll make another anytime soon, even though there are several fields in my line of work i could produce them for.
having said this, i am terrible at day to day organization. my backpack was always a filthy mess, my binders would contain 5 different subject's worth of work intermingled, and pretty much any attempt at a sustained method of organization is made null within a few days. i know my ways around it, but i know i am inefficient in my methodology. i constantly lose important data, and always feel i am "doubling over" some of my efforts.
it would be very interesting to see how others view their organizational skills, and what steps they take to become efficient.
