We have a small warehouse for our Christmas project. It holds about two tractor-trailer loads of gifts that have been purchased for the children of single parents in 12Stone Church. (this is one of 4 simultaneous projects this season)
Every day, three shifts of volunteers come to the warehouse to pull gifts off the shelf…wrap them…and re-load them onto pallets to be moved next week for our big event. In this space, we generate a HUGE amount of clutter and trash. Last week I shared that cleanup cannot be an after-thought.
I wondered if we were going too far when we packed away 12 pallets of items for another project…only to pull it all back out in a few days to re-sort. Was that really helpful?
Cory Lebovitz made a wise observation. He said:
“When we clean up, we have less clutter. When we have less clutter, the project goes more smoothly.”
Where do you need to remove clutter…so that your project goes more smoothly?
Thanks for listening.
