I have often said that lack of organization and time management can ruin careers and families. (See Life Friction)
But, today, I want to point out that disorganization can literally hurt you.
Doubtful? How many accidents in the home are due to clutter that should have been put away? Have you ever taken a tumble down the stairs or in the garage due to stuff laying around?
What about in the workplace? How many workplace injuries are the result of materials that were left where they should not have been. Or a heavy load that could have been avoided?
So, remember, before you fail to put something away… it may come back to hurt you later. :)
