As I climbed in through the bathroom window the other day, I thought to myself, a) this is going to hurt again and b) maybe I should figure out a place to hide a key. Since I’m chubby and short, it’s hard for me to get through the high window and fall onto the bathroom floor gracefully. To add insult to injury, I usually end up lying on said floor panting from the exertion.
Why am I sharing the story? I have no clue, well actually I do. It’s to point out that we should always be prepared. Preparation is what makes those people that you want to slap cause they are always on time, look put together and read the entire memo.
For those of us that crawl through windows and attempt to squeeze through doggie doors, to get back inside the house while the damn dogs bark (from inside), it’s something we have to work on.
Lesson #1 – make a list every night of what you need to get done the next day. Don’t fool yourself into thinking you’ll remember because you will NOT.
My boss, sent me to dozens of organizing classes, big hint that I didn’t get until years later. The result is that I over-organized everything to the point that no one could find crap in that office. It was such a beautiful, seemingly well prepared space. Anyway, this brings me to
Lesson #2 – Get a planner and use it, I write everything down in mine, it works great! Whether a fancy binder one or a calendar from the dollar store, it does not matter, just use it!!
I would have lesson #3, but I figure you guys are bored by now, so I will continue this list next week!
