Reflections from a lazy organiser?
I was reflecting the other day on why I am interested in helping people to simplify. I think it has a lot to do with my desire to keep my life as simple and organised as possible. I get a great deal of pleasure knowing I have good systems in place that keep me on top of things. But I realised that it is probably also down to my desire not to have to do too much. So many organising, productivity and efficiency gurus out there give hundreds of ideas and strategies to get more done, in order to get more done. But to what end? This is a circular strategy. Another group of simplicity gurus would have us think that we can eliminate all stress and have all the time in the world to do everything we want. This isn't my experience of life as there are plenty of tasks that need doing. So am I lazy in not wanting to do more, or too busy to say I am living simply? To some extent it doesn't matter. I am generally living at a pace that is right for me and generally achieving what I want to achieve. If you feel things have got a bit out of balance and you think better organisation might help you, please drop me an email or give me a call.
