So this is it. My 2013 resolution. Drum roll and all that jazz.
It’s to be tidier. Consistently and thoroughly tidy.
I am annoyingly tidy in certain areas of my life. And annoyingly untidy in others. Those close to me might be hard pressed to say which is more annoying, but I’d hazard a guess the untidiness may win.
I can find no evidence that tidy people live longer, happier or more successful lives. But I guess they spend less time looking for stuff. Anecdotally I know at least one super-successful person who appears very tidy. I mean, I haven’t been through his drawers, but the surface of his large desk at least is pristine.
So there you have it – tidiness. Whether or not it is next to godliness or happiness remains to be seen, but frankly I’d settle for calmness. Or at least less anguished panic attacks when I can’t find things.
I’ll keep you posted. If you are even vaguely interested ….
