Last week I wrote about whether there was room in the current market for more organisers. You can read about that here.
Today I thought I’d start in on some of the skills you need to become a great Professional Organiser. I bet if you’ve considered a career as an organiser, you will have some of these. And if you’re looking for someone to help you get organised, these are skills you should look for.
A great organiser is good at solving puzzles. Whether it’s logic puzzles, crossword puzzles, Tetris, jigsaw puzzles or simply the puzzles that life throws at you, they all have something in common. They require someone to quickly find a solution that works to solve the conundrum. Solving puzzles involves spatial awareness, persistence, resilience, creative thinking, logical thinking (yes, both!). It’s not always about knowing the right answers, but it is about knowing where to look for the answers, and recognising the right answers when they are presented.
So if you’re good at solving puzzles, you may well make a great professional organiser.
