Is there anyone who can honestly say they don’t feel at least a tinge of jealousy and Martha’s incredibly organized style? I feel my complexion turning a lovely shade resembling brussel sprouts when I envision perfect little spaces to hold perfectly organized items that are finished with perfectly adorable labels that just happen to be written in (you guessed it) perfectly lovely handwritten script. Especially when I then look over at my imperfect clutter of papers, sitting on my imperfectly messy desk and stare into my imperfect prop closet and try to figure out where I just put that sticky note?This should go without saying but my productivity has a night and day different from when I’ve got it together and when I don’t. Clutter kills creativity and chaos stumps productivity. In short – organization is crucial. If I’m trying to be the photographer, web designer, receptionist, bookkeeper, advertiser, PR Rep and the janitor I need order! It’s really easy for me to think about what pretty things I would like in my office! A flip through the Pottery Barn Magazine, a detour onto Pinterest and the ideas are flow’n! The fresh flowers, the vintage cameras and the beautiful canvases adorning the walls… I can see it all now. Isn’t it lovely?
So I wrote this post over a year ago, I remember feeling so far from ‘together’ when I wrote it. I can actually say that I have made great strides since then when it comes to having my work-life organized. Mostly that is thanks to the systems that I have developed to keep everything moving in a stead forward motion. It’s not always perfect and I’m sure it could be even better but I’m happy to say that I have made progress! One of my favorite ‘systems’ has been the desktop workflow organizer! You can get it as a free download on the FB Page! Leave a comment and share, the best thing you’ve implemented to keep your business organized! Can’t wait to read them when I get back!
