My bad: I have started so many systems to keep me organized!!!
On the kitchen cupboard I put sets of little drawers. I labeled each drawer: receipts , people to contact like business cards or their phone numbers, metal things like coins or screws or keys, pens and pencils, etc. Sounds pretty organized, right?
Well now there are piles of stuff on top of those ! I can barely find the little drawers. they help some. I never lose keys anymore. And I always have change available. and once in awhile I can find a scrap of paper with someones phone number on it.
I have similar systems around the house. I guess I am not disciplined enough to keep using a system I set up.
There is an A,B, C system where A is the most important. I have maybe 6 areas in the house where i have started this system...
I even had a white box just for things I MUST do! It is here --full-- I have gone through it a few times. I hope there is nothing in it with dire consequences.
I made a bulletin board of a system I saw in a book. divide it into 4 areas, 2 top, 2 bottom.
The top is labeled urgent not urgent
The side is labeled must do good to do sometime
4 quadrants: upper right urgent and must do like CPR !
bottom right not urgent and good to do sometime like buy flowers for the porch
If I get all the upper ones actually done, my life would be pretty organized! But the system did not work for me! I think people who are successful have these categories in their heads!!! A friend of mine is like that. If something is low priority for her, she may or may not get around to it.
Nuf said!!! I am a work in progress. What more can I say! Chris
