Organization Woes

I need to get more organized.  I know I need to get more organized, and no one needs to tell me that.  Wandering around the house trying to remember where I put something is reminder enough.  I keep vowing to get more organized, am intrigued by organization tips and systems, and vow to get more organized when I have more time.  Tomorrow maybe.  Probably next week.

The problem is that tomorrow and next week never quite seem to get here.  I have notes that I made in a notebook regarding Query Shark tips.  I wanted to add to them, re-read them so that I can polish a query I’m writing for Project Athena.  The only problem is that I spent a bunch of time trying to find the notes (I didn’t) and now I’m writing a blog instead of submitting or polishing a query.  All because of lack of organization.

I don’t know how to get organized when I’m so woefully disorganized.  One thing that will help me is moving, which I know sounds weird, but since I’m moving anyway, I might as well take advantage of it.  I have no bad habits formed in my new house, so as long as I outsmart myself and start off organized, I should stay that way.  Right?

Maybe I need to do what most people who are actually organized do: do a little bit every day, just to get into a habit (I’m really good at forming bad habits!).  Take just 10 minutes and work on organizing something.  I never aspired to have one of those Better Homes and Garden places; that’s just not me.  I’d just like to be able to find what I’m looking for.  A girl can dream, right?
