Consequences: Eating and Organizing

I just got back from a week’s vacation and my clothes are feeling a little tight.

The truth is my eating habits have been sliding for a while and the vacation just seemed to seal the deal.

When I think of my meal choices and how little excercise I’ve been doing, I know I shouldn’t be surprised.  But, SURPRISE!  I am.  Isn’t that funny?  It’s like part of my brain that relates to food has still not come to grips with the fact that my actions have consequences.

The truth is, if you eat like a little piggy and you don’t excercise, you will gain weight.

And, in fact, organizing is not very different.   If you never set up a functional filing system, the papers will take over your desk.  If you never put the laundry away, your clothes will stay wrinkled and your clean and dirty clothes will get mixed together.  If you never get rid of anything, you will get cramped in your home.  Our actions have consequences.

I’m taking some time to let this truth sink in.  The big question is:  Am I ready to make changes?
