I was just reading an article from Dave Crenshaw's latest newsletter about organizing your clutter around the office. It's about creating (and labeling) "homes" for all your stuff and committing yourself to stick to only putting things in their homes.
This is a tough one for me, and I know it. I have my sprints of success (generally every time I do an overhaul of my GTD habits) but I find that I eventually go back to my disorderly tendencies.
How about you? Have you found a way to conquer this yo-yo organizing syndrome? And "just do it" (apparently) is not enough for me to overcome my chaos inertia.
Anyway - check out Dave's article - it is a good reminder that "a place for everything, and everything in its place" can make your life a lot easier.
