Organized Flow

Confession… I have not considered myself to be a very organized person. Ironically, I have been acknowledged on many occasions for my organizational skills. When it’s pointed out to me, I can see that I am very organized in certain areas of my life. Financial organization, budgeting, filing, record keeping, spreadsheets, data analysis, projections, etc… those have historically been anathema for me. I have avoided them as surely as a plague.
