I have made a step towards accomplishing my 2011 goal of reading at least 5 books that I own by completing Organizing from the Inside Out by Julie Morgenstern. Now, I am working the steps and principles in her book. She encourages readers to answer 5 assessment questions before starting to organize and get rid of their clutter:
1. What's working?
2. What's not working?
3. What items are most essential to you?
4. Why do you want to get organized? and
5. What's causing the problems? (which I'm currently skipping due to disinterest)
I have altered some of my actions, habits, and environment as a result of reading this book prior to completing the book. Tonight, I noticed that I've changed a number of things. I'd get to a not working and go, "well actually, I've already fixed that." Answering questions 1-4 made me feel accomplished.
I'm choosing to work this book now in hopes of me setting up a neater shop when I move to Jackson. Having more space in Jackson will also help. Part of me wants to move in Mphs even if Jackson doesn't work out (except I LOVE my complex and can't afford much larger with my current pay rate).
