I Have An Organizing Wish ~ I have an organizing wish that everything in my life were totally organized. Every drawer, shelf, file, list, closet, photograph, email, menu, errand, schedule and so many more things have to be managed and it would be really nice one day to say that everything was done.
I know that this is an impossible wish to come true.
If this wish ever came true then I know I would have achieved perfection in my life and that isn’t feasible or practical. Constantly striving for perfection is a serious time waster that can also become quite debilitating and create a dysfunctional and unhappy existence. I like to think that striving for excellence and effectiveness is the more doable goal. But at the end of the day, it is really all about having the feelings of confidence and contentment with one’s day-to-day life.
I also know that being organized is a perpetual process without ever having a finite outcome. All the efforts that I put into being organized will never take me to that final destination of being totally organized in everything that needs to be organized all of the time.
So instead I have come up with a guideline that works for me and helps me keep things in perspective.
I Have An Organizing Wish…
I know that I am doing OK at being organized when most of the things in my life are mostly organized most of the time.
This guideline isn’t based on any profound business principle or scientific theory. It is just a way for giving me permission to let things slide sometimes, to pick and choose what is most important at different times and to accept that not every detail has to be organized all of the time. Most importantly, it keeps me balanced and focused on the things that are priorities in my life.
How do you maintain your balance when trying to keep everything organized?
