If you knew and it’s probably better if you don’t considering my compulsive perfection tendencies. I like things in order. Color coded, symmetric, feng shui dialed in perfection. Of course I would never expect someone to be like this and I feel bad for people sharing my house that have to deal with it. I can say though, being this dialed in all the time frees up a lot of time and effort that would be wasted on what if I changed this or procrastinating doing that. So my empathetic brain and compulsive organizing history came up some realistic tips to de-clutter for all. This means more peace of mind and a calmer way of life around the house. Fold things neatly. For this to work you need a lot of the same stuff. A bunch of shirts and pants and underwear. Otherwise a couple items folded won’t have the fancy effect I’m trying to ensue. See opening a drawer with everything folded neatly looks great and feels like a million bucks. This includes your undies. Do it, trust me. Only Keep Stuff That Makes you Truly happy.

It’s o.k. to fail, it’s when you stop accepting your faults that you become a failure. http://charlesyarbrough.com I always wonder why people are so angry when they fail, do people really think they are perfect, that somehow they have this ability to never error in life. On the other hand I equally wonder how people bathe in failure and almost manifest it before it happens. Failure will equal strength. How to deal with failure: I think the balance is to do you best and in some way fool yourself that failure is not an option. Then if failure happens shake it off and say damn I almost had it or say next time I will do this. Except that this does not make you less of a person and it will if done right make you a better person. At that point think about what you could do better and allow that feeling of new strength take over. Now allow yourself to grow as a better more developed person from this experience.
1. It ain’t over till the fat lady sings. Batman has won more fights at the last minute than we can count. The singing, the lady — it’s a good metaphor. But we actually mean this one literally. Leave an opera before the fat lady sings, and you know what is over? Your life as anything other than an orphan, that’s what. Learn to appreciate a little culture every once in a while — it just might save your parents’ lives. 2. Never trust a man who smiles all the time. He is either trying to sell you something or trying to kill you. 3. There are two faces to every friend … and enemy. Good and evil, friend and foe, life and death — there are two sides to every action, two aspects to every personality. Believe in original sin, but also in original virtue. And remember, most of all, that everybody has the capacity for both. 4. Some days, you just can’t get rid of a bomb. A group of nuns, a flock of ducks, even a marching band — on a pier for crying out loud! Some days it’s as if the whole world is conspiring against […]
