I’m disorganized for lots of reasons. Although I try super hard, my absent mindedness gets in the way of successful organization.
Reasons I’m Disorganized #1: Absentmindedness.
Like today, I have tape in one hand, scissors in the other, and I’m ready to tape up a “let’s get organized” poster to my living room wall. Then I hear a car go by. I’m distracted by the sound and look outside. Is it to my husband’s car puling into the drive way? Nope. I’ll close the window. The quieter it is the easier it will be for me to focus on my task at hand- getting organized. But, as I close the window I notice I have the scissors in my hand. So, I put the scissors down to close the window.
Ok. Window closed. Hmmm, now was just about to use the scissors before I got distracted. At this point I’m not sure what ihe scissors were for because I don’t even see the tape or poster anymore. I must have placed the tape down sometime while I was looking out the window. Why was I looking out the window? Oh, yeah the car.
That reminds me, when is my husband getting home? I’ll call him. I reach for the cell phone with one hand, and start to dial for him, but my other hand has scissors. So I put the scissors down and call my husband. He’ll be home soon- I better clean up some of my mess. I walk back to the living room to put away the scissors, then I see my “let’s get organized” poster on the couch. I should put that up. Where’s the tape?
