how to organize without overthinking

I am a quite organized guy but it’s hard to be organized because you often go too far and organize the useless.

The beauty of organize something, of being “in place” is all about control, taking control of what can happen, being able to predict the outcome.

Organization is all about having a situation under your control all the time.
It’s a pleasure because it relieves you from the pain of the unknown.

Since it’s so beautiful it’s easy to fall into the trap of over-organizing.
Organizing useless tasks is a common thing, and it’s quite a waste of time.

To me the main rule to decide if it’s good to have a better grasp of a situation and to organize it is this:
“Will I pragmatically benefit if I keep it ordered?”

If not, then it’s useless.
