The Dust Bunnies
by Colleen Langenfeld
|Look, we need to talk. If you are still cleaning your house the old-fashioned way, you need my help! What do I mean by old-fashioned? I mean the way you've always done it. B-o-r-i-n-g, time-consuming and probably high on the nagging scale. Which is why you always put it off as long as you can.
Until your mother is coming to dinner.
Hey, I'm a mom. I know how that works.

|Personally, I am tired of having to declutter my home every time I turn around. Or every time my children walk through the door. Take your pick. So...I realized I needed a system that will get a nasty, boring job done fast and that I can repeat easily, week after week after week after week...okay, you get the point. Sorry.
I discovered the answer to my declutter needs is (drum roll, please), ORGANIZATION.
I've lost you, haven't I?
That's okay. I was there with you once. But as a recovering clutter-holic and a reformed knee-deep procrastinator, I am on a new path in life and you can be, too. It's a clutter-free path, clean and orderly.
And, the funny thing is, I discovered this path starts in my head.
That's right. I discovered my *thoughts* were cluttered. Messy. Disorganized. So I began thinking about what I was thinking (yes, I agree, too much thinking - but stay with me) and realized that I avoid organizational solutions AT THE VERY MOMENT I need to address them.
I walk in the door with the mail. My head thinks 'what do I do with this stuff?' My next thought is profound. 'I don't know.' (Sigh.) So my action is to JUST DROP THE MAIL ON THE TABLE AND DEAL WITH IT LATER.
Have YOU ever done that before?
Now, translate that into your entire house. No wonder we struggle with ongoing messes and never really get the job done.
|Okay. You can tell me the truth. I will understand.
So, I decided that instead of practicing my frustration (which I believe I am approaching the High Holy Expert Level of Frustration due to my many years of focused practice), I would use it to fix the problem and be done with it.
There's another Dust Bunny calling me.
One unforgettable Sunday our church had a three-year- old preacher, an organist who could only play one song, an altercation involving the offering and a visiting beagle who knocked over the pulpit. It happened this way on . . One Unforgettable Sunday.

The Unified Theory of Web Economics and the Science of Selling Gas
"There's a sucker born every minute!" That may well be true, but P.T. Barnum did not say it, or think it. The saying came from a competitor trying to explain away the flock of happy spenders surging through Barnum's doors. Barnum's favorite way of advertising was by being talked about. For instance, inside a room with numerous exhibits he put up a sign that said: "This way to the Egress."
Narrow-minded cynics put forth the theory that Barnum was trying to get a few pennies for re-entry tickets to those he fooled into leaving the exhibit. But no -- No! Barnum was simply advertising. The big fools weren't the ones that found themselves outside looking in; it was those who paid for new tickets just to show their friends the Egress sign. Lin Stone P.T. Barnum's book The Golden Rules For Making Money will reveal some of the solid secrets to super publicity he used to build a world wide reputation in a hurry!
