Eventually, most of us find the things we're looking for. Occasionally, we don't. Somehow it fell out of our pocket or was accidentally thrown away. It's frustrating, to say the least. Of course, we want to find our things. But, why is it important that we find them quickly?
It gets us out the door.
It allows us to continue our train of thought.
It keeps us from getting distracted (now we have to look for the thing!).
It prevents us from spending money to buy it all over again.
It keeps us calm.
It means we know where are things are, and we don't have to feel like our space is in charge.
