Lost Causes

Never underestimate the power of misplacing something important. If you can't find that passport or paycheck, this is your chance to:
  • trash out your car
  • find all the other important things that have been accumulating in piles all over your house
  • organize your file system

Also, remember Hunt's law:

The thing you are looking for is where it belongs, but is invisible until you have looked there x+1 times, where x is the number of times you have to look before you're absolutely sure it's not there.
