Unveiling the Superpower of Organization: A Lesson from a Fifth-Grader

Oct 03, 2023

Have you ever considered organization as a superpower? Recently, I had the joy of attending Back to School night with a friend, and I stumbled upon a thought-provoking writing excerpt from a fifth-grade student. The prompt was simple yet profound: "What is your superpower?" The young writer expressed:

"Staying organized helps me stay in line with my day."

Although I'm not responsible for raising this child, their words inspired me and made me contemplate the immense power of staying organized. It's a power that can significantly impact our lives, regardless of our age.

Some individuals seem to inherently possess this superpower from a young age, effortlessly maintaining order and organization in their lives. Others may discover it later in life, realizing the benefits it brings to their overall well-being. Personally, I've always recognized that staying organized helps me "stay in line with my day."

However, it's important to acknowledge that not everyone is born with this superpower. Life's twists and turns can sometimes derail us from the path of organization we once followed. The less we use this power, or the more challenging it feels, the more distant it may seem.

But here's the remarkable thing no one tells you about this superpower:

  • You can make it your own, no matter your age.
  • It's okay to seek help along the way,
  • You may need to work at it daily, both physically and mentally.
  • You can learn to let go of clutter and find strength in simplicity.
  • You'll discover that perfection isn't a prerequisite for possessing this superpower.

So, if you find yourself wanting to keep your day, your space, and your mind "in line," take a small step today towards building up this superpower. As you continue to strengthen it, you'll add another extraordinary trait to the already superhuman being that you are.
