Days fly by for me, in a frenzy of activities….from direct marketing for our clients, my social media network, my real network of friends, my new books (I’m writing), my columns and all the mundane things I do, like paying bills, returning calls, and handling the challenges of board membership.
In the course of doing all of these activities, I let others slip by. One of those things that I’m always fighting with myself about is Organization. When I was a kid, my mom said I had a disorganized mind and that was why I was so creative. Now, there’s no excuse.
So, I started calling Kate Sandberg, who had worked for us in New York. I invited her to come and visit with me in Florida, and help me to organize my desk, my closet and this visit…my new book. I had clippings everywhere and articles I’d written and in one weekend she managed to get me all straightened out.
I call her my Organizing Angel. My closet is immaculate, my book is in order, and she helped me to purge over 10,000 emails that were sitting in my home computer.
Now I’m free of clutter. In a few months, I’ll invite her back again for a refresher. Each time she flies in, it gets easier, and there’s less clutter and more seconds for me during the day. And, we go out for dinner and celebrate….and always laugh through the process.
