The heart of organizing

The other day at the library, I picked up the book organizing magic by Sandra Felton. I am always on the lookout for a better way to get the job done. I was surprised to find that most of the book is focused on the philosophy of getting organized from the inside out. We really need to start with our own goals. I am finding that each person has their own set point of order.
"I want peace. I want to see if somewhere there isn't something left in life of charm and grace." -Rhett Butler, in the movie Gone with the Wind.
I can really identify with Rhett. I feel the peace and charm and grace in a place that is relatively clean, interesting, personal, natural and real life. I guess the heart of the matter is usually the best place to start.
