I sit here with an Arizona Iced Tea bottle, 2 cups, 5 race sign up sheets, a to-do note card, and a pen strewn across my desk. Organized? Not so much. But hey, life can be chaotic sometimes and letting it be so is a-okay. This becoming a habit is definitely not what I am promoting, but trying to neurotically control everything in life will only make you hate life a lot more.
Breathe. Sometimes, even I forget to just breathe. I am looking at these things sitting on my desk knowing I could organize and/or rid them in about 2 minutes, but I have the urge to write a post, so I am letting them bake in the light of the fluorescent bulb for a tad longer. I think you should just take the 2 minutes and organize it 9 out of 10 times, but sometimes you just have to let it go and come back to it later.
I will not suggest this often. I have grown to address the things I should and need to right away so that I do not have to deal with them anymore or dwell on consequences. But very rarely, we need to relax, know everything will work out one way or another and just say, “No Worries.”
LifeEx Action Steps:
- 90% of the time, organize and address clutter or issues as soon as possible
- Ask yourself how much NOT doing ‘this’ action will affect your day
- Be honest with yourself. Stop putting 90% of organizing off by referencing it as your 10%
Have a great day…
