What made me take note of this was going to a conference in San Antonio with my school. We were in a website competition and competed in other contests as well. We were fortunate enough to place 1st in the website competition but fell short in the others. Part of the reason was that I didn't have the files I needed easily findable.
Each challenge we have teaches us something. Sometimes, we have to take a step back and look at what we have and what we need. It's why I was always drawn to shows like Clean Sweep. Organizing helps bring order to chaos and gets rid of the overwhelming feeling that happens when we let one too many things slide.
How It Benefits Our DogsDogs are first and foremost pack animals. Like humans, they crave a routine. When my dogs know that it's time to eat or walk time, a sheer rush of excitement comes over them. Routine builds structure. With structure comes calmness. Your pets will be happy and your life will move at a more steady pace.
Taking The First StepsWhen you have lots of organizing to do, the hardest part is taking the first step. Yet, it's the most important step you'll take. Even if you just do a little each day, you're one step closer than before.
I hope to start with my computer and then will bridge out to my paperwork. After that, spring cleaning can really start.
