I'll get to that tomorrow!!!


So I'm back! I've been working on my fundraiser for the Greensboro Cerebral Palsy Infant/Toddler program where my son attends @ The Gateway Center here in Greensboro. Wow that's a mouthful!!! It's called the Drake Naylor Invitational. We raised an astounding $50K, I'm thrilled and exhausted at the same time. Thanks to all my friends and family that made the event sucha HUGE success!!!

So with that said... I'm procrastinating on getting back to blogging. I wish I had a personal assistant to get my life together...and a personal chef... and a personal trainer... and a well, you get the picture of my day dreams. Since It's just silly ol' me, I'm just gonna jump back in this and tell you my latest find.

For those of you that don't know me, I'm a complete and udder, un-organized mess (I hide it all in my closets, drawers and attic!). I have BIG dreams and plans of getting it all done! It doesn't seem to happen though...let me add to my list...a personal organizer!!! Since I haven't yet gotten the phone call about winning the lottery, I'll tell you about a cool site I found several months ago, the clutter diet.
I get e-mail reminders about some great organizing tricks and ideas! Do I use them, not usually. Do I like the ideas? Yes, I think she's a great inspiration to "think" about organizing my messy place. She has a blog, a web-site, a book, twitter, newsletters and more. I still wonder...does she really have it all together?!?!? I'm not sure about that, but she looks good doing it!!!
Well, the e-mail today was about starting a personal accountability system...kinda like weight watchers for the dis-organized. I LOVE IT!!! Who's in? I'll call you tomorrow!!!

Here is what made me blog today!!!
The probability of completing a goal is:
10% if you hear an idea
25% if you consciously decide to adopt it
40% if you decide when you will do it
50% if you plan how you will do it
65% if you commit to someone else you will do it
95% if you have a specific accountability appointment with the person to whom you committed.

I have a GREAT friend who is starting her own personal organizing business! I've been told I'm going to be her guinea pig... GOOD LUCK with that!!! I'll be posting pics if she can really handle the job.
I could probably blog about messy me and just show you all my favorite finds up in my attic!!!
