Friday, June 3rd is National Donut Day–I’d probably be hard pressed to find someone who didn’t want to celebrate that day!
You may be asking yourself, ‘So, what do donuts have to do with organizing?’
When I work with a client, I always end the session by reminding them to reward themselves in some way for a job well done. Can you think of a more yummy reward than sinking your teeth into an ooey-gooey, or chocolatey, or sprinkly donut? If you’re planning on doing any organizing on Friday hop on over to a participating Dunkin Donuts after you’ve finished your task. They’ll give you a free donut with the purchase of a beverage (while supplies last).
Now for a little history: According to the Entenmann’s website, National Donut day was created to honor Salvation Army volunteers who served donuts to troops in World War I. For more information, read this. The Salvation Army takes donations from thousands of people a day who are purging through their belongings during the organizing process.
See? Organizing and donuts–it all leads to The Salvation Army.
