One of the things I appreciate most about what I do is the opportunity to learn from others, and hopefully to help others learn along the way as well! Some inspiration from Samantha Nienow of Red Zest Design sparked this analogy and opportunity for learning - which I think we can all apply to our lives. So - are you a Crock-Pot kind of person or zap-it with a microwave kind of soul?
Do you take your ingredients in the morning and put them in the Crock-Pot, planning in advance for the evening meal, then walk through the door after a long day to delicious smells wafting through the house? Or do you grab a smattering of leftovers and *hope* you don't over-zap them in the microwave, all the while still knowing that the food is not going to taste just right?
Now apply the comparison of the Crock-Pot and microwave to your organizing. Do you plan ahead for storage and take the time to put things where they belong? Or do you cram whatever you can into the nearest space and *hope* for the best? Your Crock-Pot organizing skills take a little bit of forethought, but provide you with the results you want, while the microwave organizing method gets you a short term solution with lackluster results.
So are you a Crock-Pot or microwave kind of person? I'd love to hear from you! And if you want some help moving from microwave to Crock-Pot, give me a call!
