Sometimes they recognize the problem and buy organizing books, filing systems and time management systems which just become lost amid all the other clutter. They tend to be packrats and shopaholics, unable to part with things even after they have outlived their usefulness. Usually, every surface <including the floor> is covered with papers and objects they purchased but never even opened, making if extremely difficult to find anything. They have a tendency to lose track of time and become easily distracted, jumping from one project to another without ever finishing anything.
