I decided that today was going to be admin catch-up day, but it looks as though I’m going to have to revise my ambitions and have an admin catch-up week. I intended to break the day into chunks of work – filing, check bank and card statements, emails etc, with rest breaks in between.
I started sifting out the accumulation of paperwork on my desk to separate the filing from the current statements and “other stuff”. And ended up completely clearing and reorganising my desk. Possibly as a procrastination exercise to avoid getting on with the statement checking, but I’m choosing to interpret it as a “first day of my new life” declaration of intent.
I love my new tidy desk and I’m going to do my best to maintain a clear desk policy from now on, like I did in my “proper job” working life, as part of my strategy for achieving my goals. More on strategy later in the week.
