A Loser in the War Against Entropy

Entropy, as defined at dictionary.com is a measure of disorder in a closed system and/or the inevitable and steady deterioration of a system. We've all experienced it. When left alone, the pumpkin on our stoop will turn to mush, the trim board on our garage will rot, and toddlers will take every sock out of their drawers and spread them around on the floor. As organizers, our fight against clutter is the fight against entropy. This week, I've joined the enemy. I've caused the thing that was once my house to be pounded into teeny-tiny bits of wood, plastic, cement and insulation.

Even if you buy the argument that sometimes you have to pull everything out and look at it anew in order to understand how to organize it, isn't this going a bit too far? Last week I blogged about the ultimate Sort & Purge. The demolition was more like a Smash & Purge. Unwilling to sort any further, it was easier to push the molecules of the house along to their rendezvous with randomness.
Demolition Day was a sad day. I'm hanging on tight to my hope and belief that the future will bring something organized and orderly to the spot where our little house once stood.
