I live or die by lists. My OCD brain won’t accept anything less. I have lists for everything… and calendars… if I don’t, my mind scatters into a million pieces & I can’t get anything done.
So I’m obsessive about lists.
But occasionally, I forget to put something on my list(s), and what happens? Oh yeah, I don’t do whatever that ‘thing’ was.
… Like wrap a xmas gift for the friend I’m meeting for lunch. Got the gift, but no wrapping.
So that’s when my creative side jumps in & figures out a solution.
In this case – it was really simple. I’m at the office. And the gift is small. One MSOffice Publisher file & a really fun holiday-themed image later, and voila! I’m printing my own wrapping paper.
Last minute, but doesn’t look it. 🙂
