1. Message of the Day - No Silver Bullet

In 2002, Burger King Corporation was in need of a bit of reorganization. They hired a new CEO and a new president as well to try to make an improvement. We can learn from what they have to say about how to improve.

The then new CEO Brad Blum said, "We are not looking for a quick hit. There are no silver bullets here." He goes on to say they are going to stick to the basics. For Burger King that means to focus on three things: making sure the restaurants are clean; serving hot, good tasting food; and filling orders quickly and accurately.

It's true. Some problems can only be solved by sustained focus on a few important things. "It comes down to great execution of the basics, day after day, year after year," said then new president, Bob Nilsen. "That's what leads to greatness."

Gurus from every discipline say the same thing. Success follows everyone who finds the few important keys that apply to their area of concern and works those few things to death.

That is what The Organizer Lady is all about. It focuses on a few basics such as changing the ways we think and feel about the things in our lives, changing our habits, and applying basic organizing principles. If we do that, we will succeed. It is as simple as that.

Reminds me of our saying,
"Improvement won't come in a day, but it must come daily."

3. Habit of the Day

Leave the area as good as you found it, or better.

(LEAVE IT, BETTER THAN YOU FOUND IT!  This can be a call and response with the family.)

4. Family Reminder of the Day

In our family, we talk kindly to each other.

In our family, we think ahead to solve problems before they happen.

5. Quote of the Day

"There is no greatness where there is not simplicity."


6. Question of the Day

What are some of the unexpected occurrences that give us reasons to stay organized in case of an emergency? A couple of examples are unexpected guests or an unexpected trip to the hospital. What are some others?

Tell us by posting on Friends-of-The-Organizer-Lady.

7. From the Trenches


I was burglarized and the cops thought the burglars had made the mess and kept sympathizing
with me for the disaster created by the burglars. Ha! The burglars took the jewelry and left. They
didn't make any mess at all.

Thanks to Frances

Are you hitting a wall with your organizing?
Jackie said, “It’s the hitting the wall that makes this class work.  We get stuck, you get us unstuck, and we keep going.”
