Murphy’s Law or Hemphill’s Principle?
Think about this:
I often hear people say: ” I know that as soon as I throw something away, I will need it!”. Murphy’s Law certainly has it’s place and this is the reason may people keep everything. It is out of fear. But, think about it. When has this ever happened? If it has, what can you do to protect yourself? Do you use any online tools that will allow you to save articles, documents, photos and other things and then back that system up?
Consider instead Barbara Hemphill‘s principle: If you don’t know you have it or can’t find it, it is of no use to you. Today there are so many apps and digital tools that help you to stay organized without all the physical stuff overwhelming your space. Make some time in your schedule to check out these new free resources and commit to trying just one or two. Or, consider reading some of my posts that do this for you. I have tried several apps for shopping lists, to do lists, keeping track of mileage and so on.
If you have an app you are interested in or need an app for something, let me know. I’ll review it, compare it to others, and then post a blog about it. If you have the need, I am sure others do, too. So, is it Murphy’s Law or Hemphill’s Principle?
