...Reading a magazine article to the finish may be hazardous to your self-image.
I came across an article called "Spring-cleaning for your life" by Rhonda Abrams. She is the author quite a few business books so I thought it might be worth reading her article. Plus, God knows, I could use all sorts of helpful hints about spring cleaning right now!
She's writing about organization and this paragraph caught my eye:
"Neat is not the same as organized. Oh yes, honey, I'm with you on that... continuing on...I have piles of papers on my desk, but I know where everything is...Amen, Sister, same here!...So do many other entrepreneurs, salespeople and creative people Uh-huh, still with ya!...That's because many of us are "out of sight, out of mind" kind of people. If I put something in a drawer, I may never remember it. Well, duh! Why do you think my scrapping stuff is out everywhere?...
OK, now is where they should have inserted a caveat "the but to follow".
She now says: Get rid of stuff. You have got to be kidding, right? While clean isn't the same as organized, messy isn't necessarily the same as organized, either. Sheesh, talk about bursting my bubble! Feeling quite deflated now.
Cuz, somehow I don't think that she's going to think my "up from the floor onto my project table" will qualify as organized piles.
I should have stopped reading while I was ahead. :))
P.S. Still working on our floors.
