MY WORD FOR 2014? O-R-G-A-N-I-Z-E !!
Late this afternoon I began working on organizing my desk. Gosh, does it NEED it! I started with the huge pile in my "In Box". I neglected to take a photo of the before, but this is the paper filling the recycling container in my office. All from ONE in-box!
Thankfully, my in-box looks SO much better. The paperwork turned side-ways (down to the brass paperweight you can just see peeking out) is REALLY important stuff that must be handled first thing Monday morning. The next pile (down to the cardboard) are things that are pending and I should be following up on in the next week. Everything below that is in need of filing. I think the next time I am at the thrift shop I am going to keep my eyes opened for a multiple section wall pocket. I could really use one that I could label "Tomorrow", "Pending", "J" (for things I need to give to him) and "Mom" (for things I need to give to her). Hopefully I can set up a more permanent filing system in my desk drawer for all of the other things that don't need immediate attention. Tomorrow? I start to tackle that desk drawer. Frightening. Truly FRIGHTENING! And the desk is just the tip of the iceberg!!!!
