Blog: Organizing for Boomers

Too much to do on your list this time of year? Has that feeling of overwhelm and panic crept into your life? Do you catch yourself coming and going but not knowing where you've been?
Be grateful in realizing you are not alone. The holidays sneak up on us each year no matter how often we promise ourselves we'll be ready this time.
It's not too late to look over your list and re-evaluate what's on there that could possibly come off. If it helps you some, keep in mind your To Do List is nothing compared to President-elect Obama's list. In the November 21, 2008 issue of the magazine The Week, the cover had Obama's To Do list on it with a drawing of Obama working off some of the items.
His list looked like this:
                                                THINGS TO DO
                                                MAKE HISTORY------
                                                FIX ECONOMY
                                                GET PUPPY
                                                END WAR
                                                MEASURE DRAPES
                                                CLOSE GUANTANAMO
                                                GET MILK
                                                HIRE RAHM----
                                                APPEAR BIPARTISAN
Whether you voted for Obama or not, it doesn't matter now. History has been made and he'll need all the help and intelligent counsel he can get to work through these items successfully.
Aren't you grateful you're not in his shoes?
His list makes yours seem pretty reasonable now, doesn't it? Nothing like a little perspective to help us keep it simple. So take another look at your list. Can something be eliminated here? If not eliminated, how about reduced, re-invented or recycled?
Keep your focus and count your blessings.
One step at a time…
Until next time
