Action speaks louder than words and that is oh so true when it comes to organizing.  Last month I did focus on gathering information, listening to podcasts on organizing, reading articles and blogs, and getting ideas from Pinterest.  The ideas were good for the most part and really much of it I already knew.  I came across a quote at the beginning of the month and although I can’t remember where I heard it, it was powerful.  Basically it is that Knowledge is not Power, taking Action on Knowledge is Power.  I must have heard it in one of the podcasts I listened to but it stuck with me and at a deep level I knew is was true.  So … my mantra, theme, and code word for the month of August was ACTION.  And that is what I did.  I dug in and started clearing things.
