“I’ve been organizing things but now no one can find what they need.”
Everyone right now seems to be cleaning house. I know they say it happens in the Spring, but I actually think that with the start of school parents everywhere have set a new goal to become better organized. And, apparently this isn’t limited to only parents; the above overhear was from the new manager at my local Starbucks who has her own plans for improving efficiency.
Unfortunately it isn’t always easy to create intuitive new spots for things… and even more difficult to get our brain to conform to new habits. I have recently run into this as I have tried to re-organize my blog archive. Those fun little tags I have been using willy-nilly are now out to get me. Why, for example, do I find my blog post about the word
‘funnest’ under the tag Apple? (turns out it references the company, not the fruit; click here to read it).
It is a lot of work to go back and re-sort all of my posts into correct buckets. And… even when/if I do, I have a feeling I am still going to get it wrong. There is a reason information design is a science. In fact I’m positive I have
written a post all about this before but I can’t seem to locate it in my messed up archives.
So, if you happen to come across it under any of my tags, like say, friendship, please let me know. I have a feeling I could use some organizing help.
Oh…. And for future reference, this post will be tagged withAll just to be on the safe side.
