Our morning routine controls our destiny.

It takes a great deal of effort to stay decently organized.

It takes a great deal of effort to manage a disorganized life.

Just another insignificant day:

  1. Visit Apple store to try on the Apple Watch…the one ordered a week ago.
  2. Visit Tax Preparer to pay for completed 2014 tax return and pick up personal files.
  3. Visit West Orange High School Ninth Grade Center to verify 2015-16 school enrollment process.

The only one that was planned was number two.

The most significant was number three. Had felt a terrible sense of disorganization thinking i had majorly dropped the ball. Turns out, there are two more months before High School registration begins.

Our Tax Preparer saved us $14k.

You know how we sometimes get on a roll and we sort, clean, organize, and then purge or donate our stuff?

And then shortly afterwards, it feels like it never happened?

Now imagine if we didn’t routinely organize our stuff.

So much of the ‘why’ is hidden in the constant onslaught of life.

The battle is often not to get ahead, but simply not to get buried.
