How to be organized

Organization is very important. Without organization, you will be disorganized. And if you are disorganized, no one will pay any attention to you and workmen will be working on the bathroom and everybody will be yelling and the goddamn phone won't stop ringing and you bounce a check to the grocery store and forget to pay the car insurance and...

Step One:

Have a well-organized work space. In this example, everything is piled up in order of importance, with the most important things on the bottom. This practice ensures annoying important things will not disrupt the work day.

Step Two:  Keep important reference materials handy. You never know when a zombie carrying an invasive plant may interrupt your fishing and require a stern talking-to.

Step Three: Follow the Soviets! The USSR was organized like a mamma-tamma. This book spells it all out. It is also very handy if you need to take a power nap.

Step Four: Outta Sight, Outta Mind.  Take everything you don't want to think about, put it in a cardboard box, and shove it under your desk.

Just follow these simple guidelines and you too will be organized!
