Hello! This is the first of many blog posts that I will be writing from time to time where I give you a little insight into ME. I hope you enjoy.
I’m James Lott, Jr, The Super Organizer and I can juggle lemons. I can juggle limes. I can juggle oranges, apple, small balls, napkin rings but I haven’t mastered bananas. Dang it! I learned how to juggle when I was 10 years old. My cousin Lee from Seattle was in town (Los Angeles) and one day in my front yard she was showing me and a few our cousins how to juggle. We had a lemon tree, so lemons were part of the demonstration. I was fascinated that she could do it. I really wanted to get it! (My personality has always been that if there is something i want to accomplish, I’m all in and will accomplish it!) To my surprise, I picked it up quickly!
Being able to juggle is fun at kids parties. It can break up a tense situation between a group of friends. It’s kind of ego boosting to see people amazed that you can do it! It also represents how I am in my regular every day life! I am a master of being able to juggle several things at once. Many times in my life I had 2 or 3 jobs at the same time. (I lived in SF in the 90’s and it was expensive there!) Never a problem for me. I made it to each job on time and ready to work. I juggle several sets of friends! I have sets of friends for different aspects of my life. I have my “going out” friends. I have my dinner party friends. I have buddies who like to watch and talk about Football (Go Steelers!). None of it is a bother for me.
Today being the Super Organizer and running a small business. I have to be a bunch of different roles. I am the CEO as well as the accountant, marketer, sales, social media director, copy editor, life coach, and organizer! Yes on some days it gets to be a little much. Some weeks I am not as efficient as I am on other weeks. And to be honest, I enjoy some of the roles more than others. Cyndi Lauper has a saying that “It’s the struggle of the juggle sometimes.” BUT in the big picture I make it work and it comes natural to me. AND I love it! I love being the hyphenate!!
