… which is a major disaster. And for me as a Professional Organiser very, very unprofessional indeed. And it’s not any old notebook with a couple of scribbles and notes, no: it’s the one and only place I keep phone notes when prospective customers ring. I don’t put details into the computer before they become “real” customers, meaning before they book an appointment with me. And it’s worked so far, because this notebook is always handy. I don’t have to start the computer when someone rings with an enquiry in the middle of cooking dinner.
Until yesterday when I realized that it’s gone. And I am not even 100% sure when and where I used it last. I always do “the right thing” because I know this little notebook is potentially worth a lot of money –I always put it back where it belongs, never take it out of the house…
So I didn’t really know where to look for it, because there is just one spot it lives and it always goes back there once I am finished. So I panicked and started what I can do best – I organised the pile it normally lives on, than started on nearby areas, maybe it slipped. Looked under the shelf and cleaned and organised there. Maybe my husband found it and put it where he likes to quickly stash thing out of sight – so the cookbooks got an onceover. Short of running out of ideas I thought maybe the kids… so I started on their bookshelves.
I am feeling I need to call an Organised to help me go through my whole house to find this bl…y notebook. I can definitely feel the panic I can hear in a lot of my enquiring customers.
I’ll continue my journey, but in the mean time – all you prospective customer out there: don’t wait for me to give you a follow up call – your Organiser has lost a bright green, A5 size notebook.
