Is it Later Now?
I was working with a client today who told me that she, like many other people, puts things down to take care of “later” instead of putting them away right away. That reminded me of a phrase I like to use with clients, “Don’t put it down, put it away.”
It may not always be convenient to put things away immediately. If you can’t take care of it now, at least put it close to where it needs to go. How do personal grooming implements end up in the dining room and bills in the bedroom? When you take a few seconds to put things away now, you avoid hours of cleaning up later.
Being organized means putting a little extra thought into your actions. Another phrase I often say is, “If you can do it in two minutes or less, do it now,” which I learned from David Allen.
