5 Causes of Disorganization

Organizational expert Vicki Norris from HGTV believes that there are five underlying causes that might explain why people are disorganized. What do you think?

5 Causes of Disorganization 1. Situational Disorganization: A precipitating life event that causes disruption and disorganization in your life. 

 2. Habitual Disorganization: Bad habits that have developed over time. 

 3. Historical Disorganization: When your upbringing (either orderly or disorderly) impacts your state of order. 

 4. Social Disorganization: When you are influenced by your social world to exist with disorder as a way of life. 

5. Chronic Disorganization: When you live in a chronic, debilitating state of disorder even though you have tried and failed to help yourself.
