Imponderables

Why is it that when I organize my desk, I can't seem to find anything afterwards?

Because you know your mess...LOL!

See, that's the thing. With piles, there's sort of an internal date. The top thing lets you know what or when that pile began and why. So I have a pile of Propers, a pile of in-progress compositions, a pile of articles to read, and a must-do pile.

It's when they get mixed up that I'm in trouble. Everything's now in file folders. Let's see how long before entropy takes over.

For me, it's that the clean-up goes so quickly, it's too much for my mind to retain (I've been suffering from Teflon Brain anyway) - The mess accumulated slowly, time enough for me to know each item.

And developing consistent systems for organization.... what a headache!
