Are there others in your home or workplace making an organised life almost impossible?  Peter Walsh shared a great way to convey frustration and ask for improvement.

When you…

I feel…

In the future…

For example,

When you leave your papers all over the place

I feel disrespected and frustrated

In the future, please put them here in this in tray.

I’ve learned about “I statements” before.  They are a very good way of conveying a message without ranting.  I particularly like this one, though, because of the “in the future”.  It gives a clear direction of how you’d like things to be from now on, in a non-judemental way.
