“The secret of all victory lies in the organization of the non-obvious.” – Marcus Aurelius

Doing the little things well can have a profound impact upon your career. It’s the little things that others neglect, making you stand out above the rest. Organization is a skill that comes naturally to some and to others it requires a fair amount of effort. This is a skill that is highly sought by employers even if they don’t know it.

Most people, without even realizing it, would have a certain degree of confidence in the organized worker. Organization creates confidence in others because we are all well aware that these workers are focused and productive. You would have little doubt that the organized person could handle an afternoon meeting. Not to say that this person is any less busy but it is common sense that organization allows people to get more done in less time.

Organized people are able to prioritize their tasks. Employers can depend upon the well organized to take on big tasks that often create big rewards. Those who can be trusted with little can also be trusted with much.

For those of you who are organized, what are your secrets? For those of you who aren’t, why not?
