Primary storage wall in my Creativity Studio (former 2 car garage I enclosed several years ago…the 6 bank boxes in the middle on the floor are all file folders in alphabetical order (2 client folders, 3 creativity files)….need to find where else to store them. In my office I have 6, 2 drawer files with 4 of the drawers with similar folders in them: MIND Design, project files, training exercises…etc.
In my library now are examples of my out buying my reading habits the last 20 months or so….many of the books on this writing desk in my library and the 8 different banker boxes have unread or partially read books sorted by topic: business, leadership, innovation, creativity, inspiration To control the chaos and not constantly remind myself that I have not completed every project or book I organized them and put them in rooms where I can access them when the inspiration, motivation or need returns.
