Make it Fun

OK, I always like to get new tools.  Now I have a label maker, a hundred file folders and a set of two in-baskets.  These are key elements in organizing, so says Getting Things Done.  Even if I am no better organized, at least my stack of stuff looks better, placed neatly into baskets.

I won't have my system fully functional yet, but using the tools seems to be fun.  That's one of David Allen's keys to success with organizing:  make it fun.  He's right.  I'm eager to get going on the project -- and use my new label maker.

That's one of the keys to life, though, isn't it?  Make it fun.  Sometimes it means having the right tools.  Sometimes it just means the right attitude.

With that tool, you can't go wrong.
