It's been pretty quiet around here, huh? Never fear, we're ok. Just busy with homeschooling, health stuff, and writing. I may be sprucing things up around here over the next couple of weeks while I have some down time. This is the first of hopefully several posts I have stored up.
To be clear, I haven't seen the surface of that desk in over a year. So, yeah. It works! My current freelance projects, novel notes, and homeschool folders each have a home that is visible but off the desktop. And my cords and chargers are tucked away. Sweet.
The best part of this one tiny change is that it had a ripple effect on the rest of the desk and the rest of the room.
Then, like MAGIC, the piles on my bar counter had a place to go, so that space also became a clear surface. Ta-da!
Never mind that pile of newspapers in the background. I've been saving those to mulch a walkway. Never mind that I've been saving them for almost two years now and they're still sitting there. Baby steps.
Think a tiny change won't have a big enough impact? Worried that organizing your office/art/music/crap room is a gigantic job, and it will take a year to tackle it? Don't let it overwhelm you. Focus in on one, tiny, solvable problem area. Let the ripple effect do the rest.
