Resist the List…

May 28, 2006 at 10:37 AM (Uncategorized)

There are persons in my circle who are right most of the time.
Some love organization…I myself have a huge problem with it.
If people I know try to organize me and my space I generaly refuse their ideas on principle. Even if they’re right.
Some other ideas I resist…

Exersise (Thanks, no, it *hurts!*)
A specific bin, or hanger or space for shoes, wheelchair footplates, coats, or keys…(the roomie may mutiny if I don’t figure that one out soonest)

One such thing is listmaking…
People hate ’em. As, here
It’s annoying.
It’s very damaging to one’s self esteem. Because there’s that *one thing* that you forget…
it never gets finished!

Resist the List!

    keys–I’m bad about losing them, too. A few years ago, I put a cup hook in the wall near the door and my stash of canes. Since I have to park my cane there anyway, it is easier for me to stop and put the keys there on the hook. I think if I was using a wheelchair all the time, I’d want a pouch on the wheelchair, and just keep the keys there with the chair.

    And I don’t like task lists, either. I have no idea how they can possibly work for people. I end up spending time writing lists instead of doing what I need to be doing.

    I need to do “to do” lists at work, otherwise I sink. I am in an exceptionally busy service that is actually 3 services, and just not enough hours in the day. If I dont’ add something to my “to do” list, chances are I’ll forget about it. I used to always make lists that I never followed. “Things to pack” “things I want to accomplish” “activities I want to plan” “things to improve” “things to buy”. Those lists were useless and discouraging coz I’d forget about them and come across them months later with that guilty “oops” kinda feeling. Not productive.

    I have been driven to lists at work as well, because I have found an online list of callbacks to be easier to retain and complete than printing out a bunch of stuff.

    But, never on my own turf.
