Kevin Hellriegel's Blog of Worthless Advice

The only blog that you really want to read…or ignore.

January and my Failures at Organization


It is the last day of January and I figure I’d better squeeze out one more blog posting of Worthless Advice before the month comes to an end.  Like many of you, I always have thoughts at the beginning of the year (not resolutions, just thoughts) of how this year will be better than last year.  I think to myself that I’ll exercise more, get a little bit trimmer by dropping a few pounds and lifting a few weights.  Then I won’t waste my days away by endless surfing the internet watching funny cat videos on YouTube or updating my Facebook status.

The perfect filing system?

The perfect filing system?

I also thought I’d get more organized.  I’d clean my office and maybe clean the garage out.  Yet, I haven’t.  I have made only minor dents in the mountains of junk I possess.  Instead of tackling it, I am here writing a blog post.  Tonight I’ll read a book or two.  Tomorrow, I have a full day of work, then it is Super Bowl Sunday so I can’t possibly do anything that day.  Sign…it just becomes an endless loop.  What is a hopeless disorganized person like me going to do?

Before you call in the show Hoarders to save me, I might be messy and disorganized but I’m not a hoarder.  Or am I in deniel?  I thought stuff away and I donate things.  I like to get boxes of junk and stop by the donation center.  It feels good to unload my treasures.

So after this blog post goes up.  I’m going to turn around in my swivel chair, pet the cat, turn on some comedy on Pandora, and clean up my office a bit.

Thanks for reading!  Leave your organizational tips below!

    If I had any, I’d leave them here. 😦

      Right now you do….but you’ll be back up in six months to your home and then we’ll see. Plus you can just throw stuff out the window if you don’t like it and it gets left behind on the road of life.

    Throw it all out! Except the cat. Shut down your Facebook account. Disconnect your cable. Get rid of absolutely everything that doesn’t serve a bona fide purpose. And then go for a long walk. Daily. It is solved by walking.

      Excellent advice Drew but how could I read your your age advice if I can’t stalk you on the internet? Actually, I am moving towards being more “unplugged”. The only thing I do on FB is email a few friends and post my latest blog entry on my alter ego FB page (since my own uploads automatically). I might just have to do a short walk now….
