. Organizing Pens and Pencils
1) I keep things I don’t like (even though they were free and I won’t be out anything if they are gone) with the pretense that I “must use them up”. Now, I realize it is better to discard or share what really doesn’t work for me.
2) I keep too much out (yes, I know it is convenient to have plenty out, but we generally are a bit out of control). It is better to have less and be in control.
3) I need to organize like this more often. Usually, after a short time cleaning out and making decisions (however small), I feel better about my life.
So, this week, get into that desk drawer or empty the mug on your counter top, and take control. Discard or share what doesn’t work, keep and use your favorites, and notice the control that comes into your life.
Take care now and have a good pen and pencil week.
