I am trying to find resources to help a 10th grader who is bright and creative but with extremely poor executive skills get organized, specifically for the challenges of high school (but, as a side effect, hopefully with carryover to other domains of life...). [more inside]
I work for a startup company and on our company's 3-day meeting we would like to use a half day or full day of work to volunteer for an organization (soup kitchen, maybe?) It is at the end of April. We are looking for something we can all do together. There are about 20 people in our company and our office is in downtown NYC, but can travel anywhere. It will be on a weekday. Any recommendations on what to do/who to contact?
My father died a week ago and due to the present circumstances, I was able to get my mother to agree to see someone about her hoarding. She is willing to confront it and realizes it is an issue, but part of getting her to agree to this was me volunteering to find someone to help. I have found multiple resources and would appreciate any advice on who I should be contacting first about this. (Special Snowflake, yada yada, you know the rest) [more inside]
I'm looking for a secure method for storing a large collection of passwords for things like vendor websites, pieces of equipment that don't support multiple user accounts, and other situations where each employee of our company having an individual account would be impractical or impossible. The password solution itself can be cloud-based (preferable) or locally hosted but should be accessible from anywhere by relatively non-technical end users. [more inside]
I'm moving into a charming old studio apartment in 2 months. I don't know where to put my bed or keep my bedroom separate from the 'everything else room.' [more inside]
I'm on the board of an arts organization that is in a funding emergency. I'm looking for suggestions of ways to raise money for our organization in a hurry - we've lost funding we were counting on and will lose our paid staff if we can't come up with some answers in a hurry. Why anon? Going public with the degree we're in trouble may make things worse. Details: we're a convening/connecting organization that facilitates other arts organizations and individual artists/musicians/creatives activities. We do some programming and help other organizations and individuals develop their programming and artistic careers. Most organizations like us are funded by supporting organizations and or a small percentage tax but we weren't set up that way and all arts organizations in our region - shoot the whole country - are struggling.

What are your strategies for maintaining sanity in relationships where one person is much more organized/a planner than the other -- from the perspective of the more disorganized partner? [more inside]
I am a marketing professional - middle management in an enormous media conglomerate. I would like to shift my work environment and infrastructure completely and work for a startup that is currently staffed only with technical experts, programmers, scientists and a small sales force. How do I pitch myself to be part of a company that doesn't have any people who do what I do yet? [more inside]
I'm going back to school. But I keep have this weird feeling that I don't know what I'm doing, even though I've got it all planned out, but my thinking keeps getting sloppy and jumping. Please help me figure out how to organize my next steps. [more inside]

My friend is trying to raise money so that his college group can go to Haiti to help earthquake victims with this Hands On Disaster Group. I am opposed to and skeptical of this concept. How do I reconcile my biases and support him? Should I? [more inside]
My new job requires me to be EXTREMELY organized. I am the opposite. Has anyone overcome serious organizational obstacles?

My partner has a lot of physical clutter in her life. I have relatively less. We've been living together for almost a year, and it's slowly driving me insane. Please hope me have a productive discussion about this with her. Yes, this is going to be one of those relationshipfilter questions, and there's ... [more inside]
Recently Unemployed. What to do? [more inside]
I've just started a new job; yay me. However, this new job involves keeping track of a lot of different projects, people and tasks, and I want to do a better job of this. [more inside]
I hate all forms of work (hence the anon. post) and the only way I've found to finish papers etc. is to stay up all day and night procrastinating until the last possible instance writing a bit here and there--an agonizing process--until, as the last chance deadline aproaches, something takes shape. These papers are usually final papers and usually earn me between a B+ and an -A... which is probably why I never learned how to do work in a painless and organized fashion... at any rate, I have two papers due on the same day and no chance of an extension on either one and am incapable of forcing myself to work. WHAT DO I DO?
My life is overflowing with stress. I have a wife and a 3 year old. We moved recently to a metropolitan area and we are having serious issues adjusting. I may have miscalculated the financial burden of where we are living, although we moved here to make more money, in addition my wife is starting two new jobs and is now having health problems (which she is blaming on the stress). Neither of us are the most organized people in the world and family won't be much help financially (in fact issues on my side of the family are adding to the stress). If you've been in this sort of situation, how the hell do I get out? What is the first step?
