Get organised to defeat chaos
Bring structure to your life and you’ll soon find you work better – and feel better
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.
