Being organized means you make decisions BEFORE you act. This is true for time management, and it is true for managing the objects in your physical environment.
That’s the big secret.
Separate your decisions about your time, your energy, and your things, from your actions.
I have also found this to be key in writing: planning ahead of time makes the process of turning a story into prose SO MUCH easier!
I like the idea of designating homes for objects separately from the tidying up process.
