We all like a moan af­ter a long, tir­ing day at work – but deep down we know that if were just a bit bet­ter or­gan­ised, things wouldn’t be so bad. We’d be more pre­pared for the tasks thrown at us, more able to deal with un­ex­pected com­pli­ca­tions, and less likely to panic when there’s a dead­line loom­ing. Swedish busi­ness guru David Stiern­holm knows this too, and that’s why he’s a struk­tör – some­one who helps peo­ple get a han­dle on ev­ery­day dis­or­der, al­low­ing them to de­velop pos­i­tive habits and bet­ter fo­cus.

“The beauty of be­ing struc­tured is that even the sim­plest and small­est of changes of­ten have great ef­fects on pro­duc­tiv­ity

– not to men­tion the pos­i­tive emo­tional and men­tal ef­fects,” says Stiern­holm. He uses these prin­ci­ples in busi­ness, but they can ap­ply to any­thing from cre­at­ing a train­ing pro­gramme to plan­ning an event or writ­ing a book. Fol­low his eight-point plan to re­place chaos with struc­ture.
