I like lists. I like labels. I like to stack, sort, file, box, hole-punch, binderize, record, scrapbook, and organize. Everything in it's place and a place for everything. Isn't that how the saying goes?
Homeschooling requires a great deal of WORK in the organizational department. I'm by no means 'organized', but I do spend a HUGE amount of time TRYING to be. Probably too much time. I admit that it can become sort of an OCD obsession.
This year I have decided to focus on perfecting my organizing by marrying it with SIMPLIFICATION. That's kind of an ongoing goal that I grandfathered from last year... which will help me to live out my 2010 motto:
"Live on Purpose"
Having a plan is necessary if you want to accomplish a goal. Plans are orderly. Order requires organization.
Painful, I know. But if you take small steps, you might just find that you like getting organized. It feels good to get rid of clutter, give things away, have things in their own place and easy to find, and to have clean surfaces to work on.
