From Disaster to Organization

Genealogy conferences are great. At conferences you get to meet new people, reunite with friends, learn from some of the most knowledgeable people in the field, learn organization techniques, and so much more.

One of the things that is so great for me about going to conferences is that it gives me the motivation to get organized and stay organized. As most of us know, that organization isn't a permanent thing. It may last for a while, but along the way we let things slide a little and before we know it, our desks are back to being so cluttered that it makes it hard to do any research.

Well, when I returned home on Sunday after Jamboree I looked at my desk and realized that I had let thing slide. It was so hard to find things on my desk and there wasn't even a spot to put my laptop I had to move things to the side to even make space for it.

  1. Wow! That is a big difference – I need to still unpack my backpack from Jamboree and start organizing – thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Wow! Great job, very motivating for the organizationally challenged (like myself!)

  3. Very good! I see you still have those Quick Sheets handy. Me too. I like aids like that.

  4. Nice! I said before I left for Jamboree that I need to clean my office and desk when I get back. Haven't started yet, would you like to do mine toooo??????

  5. Wow. I started doing that today, but the first job was to move everything and pull up the 8 x 10 rug that was under everything so I could clean it. So I have moved everything several times, and I won't have the rug back for a couple of days.

  6. I am so jealous! It seems like I get my desk organized and then something happens and in just a few days – bam – it looks the same all over again. You are motivating me to clean it up and stay on top of it.
