So right now, my desk is a mess. I have piles everywhere and the fact that I am organized and I teach others to be organized too means that this drives me nuts! It is OK to fall off the wagon once in a while if you know you can get right back up and get up when you need to.
I think that part of the issue is that I bite off more than I can chew. And I do that a lot too. I think I can do much more than I really can! Sure, I could do it all if I devoted hours to it and did nothing else but that. And it just might get to that in the next week if I cannot get it done the regular way. But this is real life and between all the other junk that needs to get done and me staying sane, it takes a lot longer to do anything than I plan.
