You have known for a long time that you need some help with your organizing systems. Nearly everyday, you feel as though you are just barely getting by. You spend your time dealing with other people's "EMERGENCIES", and rarely have the opportunity to plan the best use of your day. You are lucky if you can just get through this week's mail -- muc less the huge backlog of paper stacked on your kitchen counter. Worst of all, your personal life is SUFFERING because of your disorganization. You are stressed, you don't feel well much of the time, you rarely get to see your friends and family -- and you are certain that there has to be a better way.
You usually manage to keep things under control. But every once in awhile, you get BOGGED down in paperwork, commitments to other people, or a backlog of unfinished tasks. During these periods, you have to scramble to stay on top of everything, and you get pretty STRESSED. You end up running non-stop errands, canceling dinner appointments with friends, and apologizing to your family because you are never home. Sometimes you wish you could find a BETTER to manage incoming paper, external responsibilities, and your daily schedule.
Who says "anal retentive" is a bad thing?! You are about as organized as they come. Your home is a JOY to behold -- and friends and family alike know that they can count on you to get the job done, because you have good time management and organizing skills. And, best of all, you build in time for YOURSELF while still being twice as productive as most of other the people around you.
