Do you ever have a really good work day and realize that you’d forgotten some aspect of your work that you really, really enjoy?
I had a day like that today.
I organize things professionally because its who I am. I organize, I sort. Pity my poor husband. Its not something I learned to do as a profession. Like so many other solopreneurs, its something that I do naturally that I turned into a business. Homes, offices, its about the mindset, not the space for me.
Today I remembered what I love to organize more than anything, and that is words.
I know, its a little odd to think of writing and copy editing as ‘organizing’ words, but to me that’s what it is. Is this word doing the proper job here? Or should it be some other word? Does this paragraph enhance the flow of the idea here? Wouldn’t it work better two pages down? I know this anecdote is lovely and fun but its cluttering up your idea, I’m afraid it will have to go.
To me, that’s organizing. And its almost play.
How lucky, to get to earn a living doing things I’d really do anyway.
