Re: Organized

Meet the Lazy-and-Tedious.
I hope that I am just a relatively light case of OCD. I am far from having my socks neatly sorted in 14 categories by style, season and color (but I still did consider a possible number of the categories). I do not have a daily planner but I envy people who are hopeless enough to keep one updated and followed.
7-30-08-organizing[1]I enjoy things organized, predicted and anticipated - in all aspects of my life and work. My family is working hard to prove that life always smashes plans in every turn but from time to time I manage to have my humble moments of glory when things catch up with the schedule.
Since I was a kid, I dreamed of traveling a lot, and "seeing things" and a bit of "meeting people" seemed to be the reasons. But being grown up I realized that there is more to that - man, wouldn’t it be the best field for giving up to planning and scheduling at scale?! Being thoroughly lazy I bet that 3 hours of a commuter research done in a comfortable chair are worth to be spent if it saves an hour of running back and forth searching for a track from which the train to Florence departs. I can easily spend another 3 hours on web surfing to optimize number of steps I should take from Rafael Gallery to the Sistine Chapel. I will do my homework to minimize phone conversations with hoteliers or travel agents to arrange comfortable yet savvy stay in Hakone.
So in traveling, my passion to align things in the neat spreadsheets is actually justifiable.
