unbeknownst to you, miniscule color elves are constantly operating on the grass, removing the greenness in your immediate vicinity and sloshing on layers of green on the other side

quote=david allen?:
at a certain point you will get it together.

when the number of used glasses and cups in your living area reaches a certain point, you will clean them up. for some people one is too many. someone puts one down, they pick it up. some people, however, will only do something about the glasses and cups when there are no more clean ones.
different standards for "stuff."

at a certain point, you will clean up your email. for some people twenty is too many. and for some, it's five thousand. there are different standards for "stuff."

question of the day ? for march 18th then - what's your standard for "stuff"




alternative question if you don't fancy that one : what might an itchy knee be a harbinger of?

My standards for stuff are on the absolute (lower? upper?) limit I'd say:
When really, really none isn't left anymore: cups n' glasses (I have a huge double sink for them babies to wait for that point), space on email account, hope, time....

The tolerated amount varies according to my mood. I'm generally messy, although I have higher standards for invisible clutter than the visible. I probably clean my nmailbox more often than my apartment.

An itchy knee foreshadows some scratching action.

speak up dearie!

that standard for stuff thing changes every day depending on mood, whether guests are expected and other complicated factors too numerous to list here.

itchy knee - get new kecks!
