Pep Talk: What do Showering and Organizing have in Common?
What do showering and organizing have in common?
You have to do it regularly for it to stick.
The biggest misconception most people have about organizing...and I have NO idea where the hell this came from...is that after you get organized once, you're done.
As the little old lady in the Geico commercial says:
When you wrap your head around the fact that organizing takes regular maintenance, you'll be WAY ahead of the game.
So - much like taking a shower - organization needs to be maintained daily to be effective.
You may be able to go a couple of days...but then things are gonna get ripe.
