Organization is not one of my best skills. I could have a great organization ability but I don't want to put my focus on it. I lose my desire to organize things quickly.

I remember a time I organized my desk. I had folders labeled and nicely organized. It collected dust and I had papers all over my desk.

Instead of working on my organizational skills, I would rather play a video game or searching the web. At least that is stimulating.

I could be organized but I just don't care to. When I push my self to be patient and focus on organizing, I do it very well. When I get stuck on details of where to put things, I can call on my wife to help me. She is very organized. Just what I need.
