zero in

Are you able to zero in on things for easy access?
Do you zero in on one task?
There is something so admirable about those than can live with absolutely zero-waste and really zero in on what is important and what is good for the planet too.
What would you score, a 100 or a zero?

What a great question and one worth pondering! I'm certainly not at 0, but I don't think I'm at 100 either.

Oh I'm guilty!
I think I'm too wasteful to be a zero, but trying so much to be better at it &hearts:

Certainly not a zero but maybe somewhere in the middle.

I definitely don't zero in on one task. Usually I'm doing too many things at once. My cabinets...in my defense are organized like the ones in the photo. :-)

Serious multi tasker here I'm afraid. And I do have lots of jars and containers as you show - my saving grace!!

I'd say I'm 75% most of the time and of course I love that first image!!!

Um, I definitely slide to the 100 side of things. My mind flits around, constantly distracted by "shiny things" -- the only time I am focused is when I paint and flow takes over. And my kitchen cabinets look nothing like that!
I'll just say it's part of my charm. :-)

I would love to say I zero in, and that is when I am happiest, totally absorbed in what I am doing - but a fair amount of the time I am pinballing from task to task! I can do it, but I don't enjoy it!

I would have to say I'm a student learning or a piece of work in progress. I don't buy things unless I really like it or think about it. We have been clearing out our closets and corners of the home. I realized I like simplicity. xo

Lisa said...

My attention runs from one extreme to the other I'm afraid. The way I simplify (and get things accomplished) is by not putting to much on the daily calendar. It's an add thing for my son and me to live a simplified but full life.
Frazzeled & scattered are demons around here.
Great post Patricia! By the way, I'm zeroing right in on YOU today.
Will email you shortly.

I'm a Libra. I get balance through the see-saw approach. Zeroed in on a task and zeroed out taking a break. Kinda' the mindful vs mindless way of being in the world.

I, too, have many of the glass jars as I have been "zeroing" in on getting rid of all plastics from my kitchen. Like the way it gives me my own old-fashioned store.

Oh boy....I'm probably in the middle. I do try, but I know i could do better. I love that my children are very aware of recycling and not wasting. I will probably learn from them!!!

I am a well organized with clutter... No perhaps not quite so bad, I can zero in very quickly, but in general I am somewhere in the middle!
LOVE these images! The kitchen is gorgeous!

Gretchen O. said...

I would like to think I am somewhere in between...:) Striving to be on the better side of the scale.

I am in awe of those people. I get organized and then I get lazy and become disorganized. Round and round it goes.

Hamptontoes said...

Not sure what I rate, but I know one thing...I love these images. I prefer organization, otherwise I'm not as productive.

bricarwaller said...

Definitely not a zero! Maybe someday!
