    What fun, Ellen! I love how you’ve set these quotes on sticky notes. How did you do that? So cool. I especially love your quote: “In all things be kind, be generous, be grateful.” That’s beautiful.

    It’s fun to collect quotes on Pinterest. Like you, I have a board of favorite quotes and phrases. Here’s the link: http://www.pinterest.com/ohsoorganized/oh-so-thoughts/

    For years I’ve been writing “Organizing One-Liners” which distill an organizing concept down to a single sentence. Here are a few for you and your readers:

    “When people are ready, they change.”

    “Find balance between doing and being.”

    “Allow yourself time to acknowledge your successes.”

    “Organize in moderation today so that you can play more tomorrow.”
