My go-to organizational "system."
When things get messy, I simply gather up the clutter and pile it into stacks. It's a temporary fix that puts a bandaid on a larger problem.
Stacks of books. Stacks of papers. Stacks of bills. Stacks of DVD's. Stacks of pancakes. I love me some stacks!
But every so often, the stacks have got to get dismantled or I find myself shifting stacks around to find things. I know from past experience that ya'll know EXACTLY what I'm talking about.
It's only been a few months since we last did an official Stack Attack, but it really needs to be a regular feature.
Today's Small Thing is this: See how many stacks you can get rid of in 15 minutes.
Oh, is that too long? OK, 5 minutes, then.
When I see a stack go away, it gives me a feeling of accomplishment. It might just be a stack of dishes by the sink that I obliterate, but it's enough to make me feel like Wonder Woman.
Do you have a stack that could be dismantled today? Remember, we are all doing this together - every Company Girl, attacking stacks all around the world. Doesn't it feel great to be on a power team?
Demolish, dismantle, obliterate or otherwise annihilate a stack! Whittle that baby down to nothing and see if you don't feel like you could fly in an invisible airplane.
What stack is bugging you? How long has it been there? Longer than a week? A month? Get rid of it today!
