I haven't been super happy with my organizational skills as of late. I have a planner and I do write down the things I need to do, but I usually feel like I'm just always playing catchup and can never get ahead.
Have you heard of Nancy Ray? Her work is gorgeous, but it's her attitude towards her life & business that I find inspires me the most. She did a whole series on how she organizes all the different areas of her life, and one thing that really jumped out at me was a book she mentioned, Ordering Your Private World. It was the sort of thing I noted, planned to look up on online & maybe order.
I'll admit, I kind of forgot about the book. But one day as I was perusing the family bookshelf, I found a copy. I can't tell you how many times I have looked over those bookshelves, but I never once noticed this book before. I absolutely 100% believe that timing was divinely inspired, so I knew I needed to read that book.
Um, it was so what I needed! A good old fashioned kick in the pants to get me started on a new journey towards being organized in every area - my work, my time, my space, and my spiritual life.
I don't have everything quite figured out yet, but I love the feeling I have of just knowing I'm headed in the right direction now. I've got a new planner (couldn't resist!), some new goal setting Power Sheets (so pumped!) and a whole new outlook on things thanks to Gordon Macdonald (& Nancy Ray!)
What keeps you organized? Any good books or tips I should know about?
