It’s a MESS around here!

How messy does it have to get before you do something about it?

After all, some of us are PROUD of our messes as if they are some sort of architecturally engineered marvel.

If that thing topples, someone is going to get hurt.

Others are tidy all the time (or they shove all of the spillage into a lockable closet).

Within reason, busy is GOOD.

Busily innovating and doing is naturally messy and is exciting enough that we don’t even notice the disarray . . . until someone brings it to our attention, or we find ourselves in one of those natural pauses in the development cycle . . . or we finally get fed up with the counter-productive by-product of not being able to find even the simplest of things . . . like a hole punch or stapler.

Next thing ya know, you swing into action purging and sorting and cleaning until you finally find the top of your desk and then the floor . . . and the cycle continues.

I love being organized and lean towards OCD with my organizational discipline, but guess what?

I can’t find my stapler . . .

Herein lies a strong indicator that I am in the midst of FABULOUSLY busy week of connecting dots that I couldn’t seem to connect in the past and finding resolution to many hiccups in my plans.

THIS is the life of an entrepreneur, and I LOVE it!

There now – Not that you needed it, but your off the hook of being tidy.

Go make your mess and THRIVE!
