I wanted to share precisely why I love systems and tools and organizing: to eliminate Frankie Heck moments. (Side note: If you don’t watch The Middle, you should.)
The Christmas 2015 episode of the middle featured a clip where Frankie lost all of the family photos. Sue accidentally deleted all the photos from the family computer, and Frankie lost the box with old printed photos. I can’t find it online anymore, but her rant was epic:
Other people have a system, and I don’t have a system and now it’s gone….We live a “remind me later life”…what is wrong with me?!”
I’ve been there. I think most of us have at some point in life – despite our best intentions, lack of planning, organization and a system have led to the loss of something important. Don’t let that happen to you.
