Just returned from a relaxing vacation at the beach. A couple of Game Plan columns went live in my absence and since I took a complete break and didn’t touch a keyboard, I’m going with better late than never.

First, a piece on how Monica Ianelli’s experience on September 11, 2001, has become the impetus for inspiring changes in her life.  She now organizes the New York chapter’s Run for Congo Women. Check out Doing Her Part to Help Congolese Women.

My second column of the week is called Professional Disorganizer, at Your Service and offers some advice to the uber organized. I know something about this one personally.
