As I sat down to write a blog post this morning, I had to laugh when I realized the irony that I write a blog about organization. This is what my desk surface looked like!!
I might be the only organizational blogger that has these moments, but I seriously doubt it!
This has been yet another busy, crazy week. I had a big writing deadline for one of my consulting clients, so I’ve been sneaking extra work time in here and there, which results in me running away from the work repeatedly to tend to a needy child. After the kids go to bed, I should straighten up so things are neat and welcoming the next morning, but I just haven’t thought about doing it this week.
I’m proud of myself for taking a few minutes to laugh at the ridiculousness of the idea that I try to share insights on organization. Then, after the photo to record the moment, I straightened things up. The messy "pile" isn’t usually quite this large, and it only took me 15 minutes to clean up my work surface (including dusting), put things away where they go, and get ready to work.
Take a few minutes today to give yourself a break. Be proud of all that you accomplish. Try to find humor in your imperfections.
