Are we all descended from royalty?
Short answer: Probably!
Short answer: Probably!
Who is this saucy young woman? Don’t know? Don’t care?
She looks like fun, though, doesn’t she?
What if you found this photo in a bin at Goodwill? For sale on eBay?
Would you buy it? Would you feel vaguely sad that somebody got rid of it, and move on?
What if you found her in your parents’ stuff and didn’t know who she was?
Would you keep, or toss? Would you try to find the story behind the photo?
More of us than ever before are working from home. A clutter-free office allows you to feel more comfortable, and therefore more focused, and productive. These 10 easy steps apply to any office, whether or not it’s a dedicated room, and no matter where it’s located.
A quick, easy decluttering of your workspace does not make you organized, but it does set you up for successfully finishing the organizing project at your own pace, while simultaneously allowing you to experience the freedom and focus that a clutter-free office can give you.
I recently saw this example of white privilege:
Ugh! That one really hit home.
Racial tension, worldwide pandemic, financial instability, political division…so many sources of stress on top of the normal stress of our daily lives!
All of the news is upsetting — and some of it is inaccurate or biased. Emotions are running high and there is no end in sight, not really.
And Facebook is… um… shall we say flawed and controversial? It’s really no wonder people are talking again about leaving it!
If, however, you’re feeling adrift, keep reading…
If so, great! If not so much, allow me to remind you how many different types of puzzles there are!
To name just a few:
Here’s a list of related Org4life blog posts, and the current status of my own gaming and puzzling life, for anyone who is curious, including the type of puzzle that frustrates me the most. (I originally drafted this post with National Puzzle Day, January 29, in mind, but have expanded it to include games, which surely outnumber puzzles in variety.)
Are you spending your quarantine time at home, reading books, watching Netflix, doing jigsaw puzzles, and enjoying the heck out of it? Or maybe you’re industriously cooking and gardening, retooling your business to provide virtual services, cleaning and organizing your entire house, catching up on home repairs, learning a foreign language, and writing the next Great American Novel…? If so, this post is not for you. Carry on! You’re doing great!
If, on the other hand, you feel you are “wasting time”, and you’re feeling guilty about it…. or if you’re thinking, “Free time? What free time?!?!”, then this post is for you!
So… we’re all locked down, to various degrees, in a worldwide effort to help stop the spread of the novel COVID-19 Coronavirus. And everyone knows that this 2020 pandemic is the worst thing since the 1918 Spanish flu pandemic.
From Wikipedia: The Spanish flu was an unusually deadly influenza pandemic. Lasting from January 1918 to December 1920, it infected 500 million (estimated) people—about a quarter of the world’s population at the time…resulting in 50 million (estimated) deaths.
Life feels scary right now because everything seems out of control.
We can’t personally solve all of the world’s health, financial, social, environmental, and political issues, but we can focus on controlling our own little corner of the world, bit by bit. Starting with “free” trials.
