My friend Bob and I went to a party and it is at the party where
I do this weeks Motivation Monday.
It was last minute and so I couldn’t prepare. Don’t you hate
it when you need to go to a party or a wedding and you haven’t
gotten things together?
When you are an OG (organizationally gifted) it isn’t horrible,
but still it does create some havoc. My sister who is really organized,
if she leaves for a party unprepared her house is in a bit of
But the thing is with organized people, things don’t

I thought that everyone experienced these things, I found out that wasn’t
It does not have to happen. If OGP (Organizationally Gifted People)
find life in disarray when not prepared for an event, is it any wonder that us
OC (Organizationally Challenged) find ourselves beside ourselves?
Definitely we want to run away from ourselves. But alas, we
take ourselves with us wherever we go. Preparing may not seem
to be the fun thing to do, I still hate to do it. BUT it sure makes
life more funner.
Getting rid of the clutter does more than make you happy when
you walk in the front door, it also brings you peace in your every
