What if millions saw your stuff but never noticed – would you fuss over it still?


Why worry about how organized our stuff is if we have relatively few visitors who will ever know?

  1. Some short cuts could be considered streamlining of a process. And with testing prove to be an improvement. But short cuts because no one will ever know is never good. Something always happens. You will need to review those steps and then there will be a snag. Process. Process. Process.

  2. Short cuts in this context implies not doing organizational things at home (because no one would know we didn’t do them), and the stuff just sits in an attic, basement, closet, etc….

    The short cut is inaction.

    So, if our attics, basements, closets (the stuff other’s never see) got really organized (taking the long way instead of the shortcut) but know one saw it, would we find it important to our well being?
