Everything must have its EXACT place!

I’ve always known that it’s best if important things have their own place, passports, tools and so on. What I’ve only recently realised is that really everything should have an exact place, I mean not just on a particular shelf but a precise spot on that shelf. It may seem rather boorish to be so clinical but the alternative is wasted time searching with attendant frustration. I have probably wasted months of my life looking for keys, erasers, flashlights, sports equipment, worse I have probably abandoned projects or ventures simply because I couldn’t find a vital document.

Can you pass the following test? Can you get up now and find your keys, wallet, camera, flashlight and passport with your eyes SHUT?

The other advantage of things having their own exact place is that you will realize much more quickly that an item has gone missing.
