Solve Too Safe Syndrome Today
If you’ve ever tucked something important away in a safe place – a place so safe you promptly forgot where you put it- then you’ve experienced Too Safe Syndrome.
Recently I suffered from Too Safe Syndrome. My driver’s license was coming up for renewal and here in the state of New Jersey you need to show up with your forms and 6 points of documentation. Certain documents are assigned specific point values; you need to show up with documents equaling 6 points.
For a few weeks leading up to my renewal date I collected enough documentation to equal the required 6 points. Wanting to keep the paperwork safe until the appointment (yep, you guessed it) I tucked those documents away in a safe place. So safe I forgot where I put them!
Then I wasted an entire morning looking through my many safe hiding places.
That’s when I decided to implement a new safe storage plan. I now have exactly one place where I stash important stuff. Hopefully going forward this will avoid another episode of Too Safe Syndrome.
Please tell me I’m not the only one who has done this. It would make me feel a whole lot better if you share your too safe syndrome story with me here.
