|"But it must be
remembered, that life consists not of a series of illustrious actions, |
or elegant enjoyments;
the greater part of our time passes in compliance with necessities,
in the performance of
daily duties, in the removal
of small inconveniences, in the
procurement of petty
pleasures; and we are well or ill at ease, as the main stream of life
glides on smoothly, or

For the better part of the last year and a half, these Organization Tuesday
been about creating systems that are efficient and effective, for
helping you organize
and surroundings, your schedules
I've tried to anticipate what questions you might have, in
order to remove the small inconveniences,
keep you unruffled by small (and large) obstacles and help you
forestall frequent (human and electronic)
I've loved writing these posts every week, and on many occasions the
work I do with my business
clients and issues in the news help guide me towards anticipating the
issues that can help you
with your businesses. But, unfortunately, I'm not a
mind-reader, and without feedback, it's hard to
know what issues are popping in up in your lives. So, if
these posts (lengthy as they tend to be) have helped, great.
But if you have obstacles in your worklife, please share them here.
I admit, as much as I'd like to believe otherwise, organizing can't
help every single situation.
(When you have a hammer, everything else looks like a nail!)
But as Samuel Johnson said, life doesn't
consist of illustrious actions but the little daily duties, and if I
can help you jettison the inconveniences,
obstacles and interruptions, I'm eager to do so.
Please write in and share your questions about organizing your office
and managing your schedule, about getting
the jump on procrastination or writer's block, keeping track of all the
tasks or finding the pencil sharpener when you need it.
If anyone has a question they're unwilling to ask to the group, please
feel free to email me directly...
my address is in my signature line.
So, my friends in the Business Consortium, help me help you.
