Our every day surroundings (whether at work or home) keep reminding us that we need to organize ourselves in a better way to lead a better, happier and more productive life. Yet most of us keep ignoring this need for better organization till we reach a point where we cannot afford to delay it any further.
I am not saying that most people love staying in a messy and cluttered place. No, we don’t! But our lives have become so hectic that we can hardly spare time for such things like organizing our home/work. Also we have immersed ourselves in so much social media that we are addicted to these recreations and fail to find time to work on improving the condition of our house/work place.
Before we talk about the benefits of staying organized, why not take a look at this useful article written by David Caolo at unclutterer.com/ which is talking about the same thing:
Benefits of being organized

Every day at Unclutterer, we share tips, tricks, thoughts, and strategies for a clutter-free lifestyle. As 2014 begins, I want to step back and see the proverbial forest instead of the trees. Just what are the benefits of being organized? It’s potentially a long list, but I’ve narrowed it down to what has affected me the most. Read on for what I consider the benefits of an organized life, at home and at work.
Less stress. Above anything else, this is the number one reason I burn calories to stay on top of things. Here’s a great example: This year, I’m making a concerted effort to keep my office neat and tidy (I work from home and my office is also my bedroom). I added a bulletin board and have designated a home for everything: inbox, keys, wallet, office supplies, charger cables, and more.

The number one benefit of organizing your surrounding is that you can save so much time later on. It may look like a huge time investment to spare an hour or so in organizing your room, but look at it in the larger perspective. Once you are done with this endeavor, you will be able to save so much time later on that you can spend on productive chores.
The second major benefit is that you will be happier with yourself. If you keep postponing the need to de-clutter your surrounding, you will criticize yourself (without saying it loud) that you are so lazy in such things. The pressure will keep building inside you. Once you organize yourself, you will be happy with the good work you have done.
I recently came across this post by Paige Fowler at http://www.shape.com that encouraged me a lot to organize my life and my surroundings. You should also take a look:

Piles of laundry and endless To Dos are exhausting, but they can actually mess with all aspects of your life—not just your daily schedule or orderly home. “At the end of the day, being organized is about having more time for yourself, and enabling you to live a more balanced life,” says Eva Selhub, M.D., author of Your Health Destiny: How to Unlock Your Natural Ability to Overcome Illness, Feel Better, and Live Longer. Clearing away the clutter can help you make healthier choices, improve your relationships, and even boost your workout.

If you keep yourself organized at work, you can get a lot more done with the same work hours. And if you organize your room or house, then you will be able to find ample time to spend with your spouse or family. I can’t think of a single disadvantage of being organized. You just need to push yourself to get it done.
