Kids don’t want to inherit your nice stuff? Some advice.

I took a bit of a newsletter hiatus towards the end of summer, but something about popular author Elizabeth Gilbert’s recent Instagram post was just the sign I needed to perk up for fall.  It’s simply a photo of her scribbled reminder that says, “Figure out paperwork” followed by #neverfigureditout.  If you too #neverfigureditout, know that you’re in good company and that you can figure it out!  It seldom takes a new box or organizing gadget, but it does take time and focus.  You may not have either of those in spades, but I watch people figure out paperwork every day.  I don’t even need to see your desk to let you know it’s 100% doable!  Oh, and if anyone has a direct line to Ms. Gilbert, let her know I can help her figure it out too.
