Five Minute Friday: Lose
I lose things often. I like to think of it as just misplacing things; however, it doesn’t always end up that easy. Keys, phone, important papers, um…..my mind at times. It never fails that no matter what system I have for placing things in a particular place, once a day, I go searching. I think this is most frustrating with paperwork. As a teacher, I copy, hand out and take in papers on an hourly basis. I try to organize myself and plan ahead and it never fails that one of those pages I copied last week (in order to be ahead of the game) gets placed in a file that I have created and then I just can’t find it. While I was on the plane to Louisville, I did some reading in Real Simple magazine about organization. One of the main things is to have a place for things to go…touch it once, and place it in the proper place.
Perhaps my main issue is that I am always re-organizing my organization system. Let’s just figure out what works and keep it….maybe I will have to remember that one when September starts. As for now, I don’t want to LOSE any minutes of summer, so I am headed to the beach. Taking advantage of each moment to enjoy creation, hear the waves, and read a good book from my WANT list in last week’s post.
