We straddle two zones as we wind down this year and gear up for the new one to begin. The days are an odd mixture of parties, paperwork, and preparation. What mode are you in? Are you planning, relaxing, or maybe doing a combination of both? One of my favorite things to do before moving forward is to reflect on the past. This gives me insights into what was and clues about what’s possible. In that spirit, I’ve gathered for you highlights from the most popular posts and organizing concepts of 2017 and also created a short video. If you’re curious to learn more about one of my quotes, click on the link to read the original post. My hope is that you’ll discover a seed idea that will inspire you as you embark on your organizing journey for the New Year.

What area will you focus on to create the level of organization and balance that you desire? Which people, projects and things will you give your time, energy and attention to?
