tranquility du jour #159: getting organized

Welcome to the 159th edition of tranquility du jour: a guide to bringing tranquility to your every day. Recorded from the Pink Palace in Washington, DC.

Today’s show menu features happenings and musings on getting organized with Kacy Paide. Ooh la la: check out my recent exploit with home organization.

Tranquilology Teleclass: Join moi for our next tranquilology teleclass "Fall Festivity" on September 21 at 9pm ET. $10. View petals from summer's teleclass.

Tranquility Tip: When feeling disorganized, take a peek around and see what you can do to bring order to your chaos. Something as simple as piling paperwork, filing, or moving things around can make a big difference.

Workshops + Retreats: Living Your Yoga 4-week series and online creativity circle in September, annual Fall Foliage retreat to the hills of Virginia October 16-18, 10-year birthday bash on October 30. In 2010, consider the 4th annual Hip Tranquil Chick retreat March 26-28 and a week long sojourn to lush Costa Rica May 22-29. All the scoop is on my workshops page.

Featured Tranquilista:

Kacy Paide, a professional organizer since 2001, took a leap of faith in 2008 to focus soley on office organizing for creative business owners. She is very hands-on and insists that organized office be the "centerpiece of your success." Clients are left with the ability to find what they need when they need it, a space that reflects their personality, and customized systems to fall back on should the papers start to creep back in. Many of her clients claim to be "out of site out of mind," so she has much success with creative categorizing and alternatives to the traditional filing cabinet. Past clients include: wine expert, lingerie company owner, lawyers, art gallery owner, retail shop owners, and more.
