For a dominant Global learner "It is easier to get an organizational system than to keep it."
That's me. I see the need, I desire to change but it's a challenge.
So how does that translate to a person that has 7 family members your caring for, 2 guests living in your basement, owning and running a store, as well as homeschooling, and having guests for dinner several nights a week?
The fact that my house is relatively clean is amazing. But the problem is that I tend to pile up the stuff that has no home in my bedroom and closet. This makes me crazy, so when I went to Target yesterday to get some storage containers, I set to work on my closet.
It brings me peace.
But I won't fool you. My shelf in my closet is higher than my head, and if I don't stand on a chair or stool (which of course I never do) it is impossible for me to reach anything unless it is right at the edge so I tend to toss things up. Really, I do. In my defense I have no idea why that lovely baby dress is there...I'll have to check with my girls. Anyway - I am going to show you a photo and you'll see what I've been living with.
Embarrassing for sure. But I am going to organize it. I need to move the old Victoria Magazines, and the extra Christmas lights (they should be in our Christmas storage area in the basement) corral the beeswax and the craft items.
I hope I haven't chased you away!
My husband and I are different personalities of course but we are also different 'learners.' He is a Concrete Sequential - Analytical learner.
We are nearly polar opposites and I need him to take over the organization of certain things - I'm just not good at it. When he asks me where something is I have a pretty good general idea but not specifics. He loves specifics!
And he loves me, so he is willing to work with my quirks. He's a keeper!
I told him last night I really do want to be organized, I just need help getting the right organizational helps to keep me organized. I have a lot of responisibilities and I tend to start projects before previous ones are finished, which made us all laugh when I was reading the definitions outloud last night.
Oh yes, I AM who I am!
