1. Message of the Day


Somebody needs to say it: 

Messies are some of the nicest people in the world. 

We need to stop and reflect on that because we tend to be very hard on ourselves because of our messy lifestyle. It is true that we do struggle with organization. Yes, clutter does keep us from performing our best in many areas of our lives. It is true that it stresses some of our important relationships. It puts us under tension. Sometimes, because of our powerlessness in the face of the problem, it makes us ashamed.

But there is more to the story. The other side of the story is that Messies in general have some very positive characteristics. We tend to be very people oriented, are very willing to help others, love animals, are committed to doing certain things very well, and are intellectually oriented. In addition we are sensitive, attuned to the environment, respectful of the past, and just plain nice.

There is a certain beneficial energy in the Messie mindset. If our characteristics are properly controlled and we begin to set up organizational patterns that work, we can enjoy and share any of those good characteristics that are a part of so many of us. In order to be the best that we can be, let's renew our energy to overcome the cluttered lifestyle that holds us back.

7. From the Trenches


I joined the Organizer Lady list and THAT has helped TREMENDOUSLY!! I have begun a "To Do" Notebook and filed my past lists into it. Set up notebooks for the future with monthly divider pages for easy filing. I began using the "quartered" method of To Do listing....."At Home", "On the Phone, "In the Car" and "On the Computer" are the categories. I fold the paper into quarters and label each space.

Get a free copy of this "Easy To-Do List"

Adopting these FEW methods has allowed me to make MUCH progress in my house. I am a "frustrated artist" with a Multimedia/Multiverse basis. I am a fan of many authors, TV shows, actors and rock groups. I want to do art and write stories, so I "gather" things I can see will make other things. I am a confirmed "Good Stuff" addict. I have started avoiding certain places on trash days. I have gotten FAR better at JUST fact JUST LOOKING helps me keep my hands to myself and I pick up less.

I am developing new habits about A LOT of household chores. I am NOT SO MUCH following ALL of the Organizer Lady's methods, but I am making Progress. Which is the PRIMARY slogan of MOST Anonymous groups ..... "Progress, NOT PERFECTION."
