2015 … Really?
As I write this, it is hot in Southern California, making it hard to believe that summer is almost over and fall soon will be upon us. This year we didn’t take a big vacation, but took a couple of short ones. Our end-of-the-summer getaway was a few days on Catalina Island. Catalina is an awesome gem, just an hour by boat out of Long Beach, Calif. We hiked, visited the interior where bison roam, saw bald eagles, did miniature bowling, at which I am horrible, and had a few good meals. Getting away is so important to our personal and professional development.
Taking some time off is good and taking some time to be organized is also smart. Might I suggest that we invest a bit of time to get organized so we are ready to attack the crazy fall season? Amazingly, 2015 will be here before we know it!
In my world, it’s a struggle to get organized. Like me, you may not consider yourself blessed with natural organizational skills, but it’s still a good idea to get your business and work space organized.
I function well with a bit of clutter, but too much is not a good thing. We may think that everything is important, but consider tossing out whatever is outdated or no longer relevant. Here are some hot spots of clutter accumulation that are good to focus on.
