It takes a long time for Messies to get ourselves together organizationally. By night our minds seem more alert. We finally focus but we are too tired to do it. Unfortunately by morning somehow it has drifted away. That's why many efficiency experts say to write your list for the next day before you go to bed.

1. Message of the Day - Empathy

In our struggle to loose ourselves from the entangling net of clutter, we may lose sight
of an important factor in the whole drama. It is not just about us.

In this world in which aggressive self-interest is not only accepted but encouraged, have we
neglected that most tender of all virtues, empathy.

Empathy is imagining the impact of our actions on others. We need to ask ourselves how our clutter affects others who live with us. Is the peace of our family undermined because the house doesn't look good. They may hesitate to ask friends and others in. Nor does the house work well and they are stressed trying to meet basic needs. If they are children and have known nothing else, perhaps they are used to it but they are losing valuable experiences of comfort and joy that an orderly and pleasant home affords. They are not learning organizational skills.

Perhaps spotlighting what clutter does to others will not just sadden us (though it may well do that), but also heighten our resolve to make difficult changes for those all important others in our lives.

3. Habit of the Day


Say it often both to yourself and out loud.

4. Family Reminder of the Day

In our family, we put dirty clothes into the hamper as soon as we take them off.

In our family, we make our beds before we leave our room in the morning.

5. Quote of the Day

Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving.
They make mistakes, but they don't quit.

Conrad Hilton

6. Question of the Day

Does your disorganization affect anybody other than yourself? Family, friends, coworkers, others?

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

7. From the Trenches

Yesterday I cleaned out a small box of accumulated pet supplies that had been setting on our side patio (dog collars, leashes, brushes, etc.). I had identified a home for all these items and was thrilled when I totally emptied that one box and placed these items in their new home. I even collected some pet items from other areas of the home and now all the pet supplies are all in one place (except the pet shampoo that lives in our bathroom!). Every little bit helps, right?

Thanks to Ginger in California

Yes, Ginger, definitely every little bit helps.
