Let me ask you a question:  Are your organizing systems working for you, or are you working for your systems? 

laundry basketNot sure? Let me give you some examples.

  • Is your laundry piling up on the bathroom floor, even though there’s a perfectly good laundry basket in your closet?
  • Are your keys, mail, and cell phone landing on your kitchen counter, even though the clutter drives you nuts?

If you answered yes to either of these questions, you’re working for your system instead of letting your systems work for you. Move your laundry basket to the place where clothes pile up. Add a simple basket to serve as a drop zone for your mail, keys, cell phones and other items you carry into and out of your home. Often a simple tweak is all you need to make your systems work for you!

What system can you tweak today to make life just a notch more simple?
