Organizing Is About Systems, Not About Space

People often tell me that if they only had more space they could be organized. Organizing is about systems, not about space.

Yesterday I worked in an office that was about the size of a closet. When I
walked in, at 9:00, the desk was covered with papers. By 12:00, we had created a paper-flow system and the desktop was clear, except for an
"action file".

In the process, I helped him think through what was important to keep,
where it should be kept, and rentention guidelines.

When I asked him how it felt to have a clear desk he said " It is a great relief.".

Note: Photos also include my helping him with mind mapping how he spends his time.

Clear the Clutter and Donate to Cradles to Crayons Collection 2/12/09 - 4/12/09

Are the clothes that your children have outgrown, toys they no longer play with, and baby equipment, they used ages ago, taking up valuable space in your closets, attic, basement, or garage? Clear the clutter and donate them to a worthy cause.

One of my clients, who is a member of the Christian Education Working Group, of the First Baptist Church, in Beverly, MA is working on an outreach project to help eleviate suffering, especially for children.

They are launching a drive for clothes, toys, books, and equipment for children in need between the ages of 0-16 to be distributed by Cradles to Crayons in Quincy, MA.

They hope to fill several portable playpens (often known as Pack’N’Plays) with donations, from February 25 to April 12. If you have a new or used port-a-crib that you no longer need, consider contributing it before February 25.
