Types of Disorganization
Situational Disorganization is the sudden onset of disorganization after previously being organized in the past. If the build-up of clutter and/or lack of time to get everything on your schedule completed is affecting your life and you are feeling overwhelmed, you could be suffering from situational disorganization.
Life-altering events such as medical ailments, divorce, death/addition to the family, or a new move are some of the many causes that could have put this into motion. Oftentimes, you may see situational disorganization in small businesses when up/down-sizing your company, perhaps you never had a sound system in place for your warehouse or your product inventory, or maybe a sudden spike in sales has created an overflow of paperwork.
Chronic Disorganization has been happening in an individual’s life for a long time. This type of disorganization significantly impacts their quality of life on a daily basis.
Individuals affected by chronic disorganization may feel hopeless because they have had many failed attempts to try and resolve the issue on their own. Chronic disorganization typically affects not only the individual but their family and even their workplace and colleagues. The causes of chronic disorganization may include but are not limited to, cognitive challenges such as PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, ADHD, and more.
To get relief from this type of disorganization you should work one-on-one with a professional organizer to learn new skill sets which you will then apply to the unique system that you and your organizer will come up with. For our clients who are affected by Chronic Disorganization, we will match you with an organizer who is a member of the Institute of Challenging Disorganization (ICD) ensuring that you have a professional with the extra knowledge needed for your system.
