Too. If there is one word that defines modern American life, it has got to be “too.” Too much to do. Too little time to do it. Too much stuff. Too little space to store it. Too many needs. Too little money to fill them. Too much to think about. And too tired to think!
There has got to be a way to deal with the “toos.” Unfortunately, I’ve figured out that they can’t actually be killed. But I think they can be controlled. And I think the way to do that is to get organized.
Organization can help you tame the “to dos.” And it can help you find the time to do them. It can you help free you from the energy-zapping effects of too much stuff. And it can free up your space to do more than store that stuff. It can help you get a handle on your needs. And it can help you find the money to fill them. It can reduce the stress of having to think about too many and too much. And it can help you find your bed when you’re too tired to think about anything at all.
The goal of this blog is to discover — and share — tips and tools that can help me — and maybe you — get organized. And since even the thought of it all is sort of mind-boggling, I think the best way to start is with baby steps. (Thank you, Flylady, for making baby steps okay for grown-ups!) So, in my next post, I’m going to take a look at personal organizers or planners. From my own experience, I can say that my organizer helped me stop jumping out of bed in the middle of the night to tape reminders to the bathroom mirror, a baby step that definitely helped me put “too tired” in its place!
