In the car today, I got to thinking. The shower doesn't work for me like it does some people. I do my best thinking while I'm driving. And singing. Anyway, I got to thinking about how on the surface, organization SEEMS to be all about control. (And of course, it is about control -- in some specific ways)

So then does that mean disorganization and chaos are all about being OUT of control, or letting go of control? In some ways, yes. But something else occurred to me somewhere between Zaxby's and Bed, Bath and Beyond...

Disorganization, stress and chaos often come from TRYING to control what you can't, and NOT controlling the things you can! Conflict results.

Chew on that and let me know what you think.
