I have given myself the challenge of trying to create more order in my life. There are areas where I manage well and others where I fail dismally and cause me stress. I would love nothing more, than to have routines and habits that enable life to just flow better. I am hoping that by posting everyday the various areas that need I feel improvement, that it will keep me accountable and I will achieve my to do list for once in my life.
Today has been very enlightening. Again, I didn’t manage everything on my To Do List, but I made significant in roads to the mountain of paperwork. It’s also spread out of the office and onto the dining room table…
The biggest light bulb moment regarding the challenge was the discovery that my paperwork isn’t Mount Everest, but more like Fuji. Still a mountain to climb, but one that will take hours to climb rather than days.
I also had a light bulb moment regarding planning, but I will share that with you later this month.
Today’s challenge tasks:
: Order photographs from a family sitting we had in March. (Eek!).
I emailed the photographer, to see whether we could still order the pictures. I’ve not heard back yet, but I have drafted the email of which ones we would like, should he respond to the positive.
: Send off at least 75% of medical claims.
This is the paperwork that has crept into the dining room. Each claim has its own spot. Still in the middle of downloading the claim forms needed….
: Update Cubs training plan.
My Cubs to do list has grown a fair bit today, so am allocating tomorrow to sorting it out. At least this time it’s not the weekend!
: Spend 20 minutes tidying the office.
What do you think?
Visually not much different, but mentally I think it is.
So it looks like this challenge is proving too much for me. But it has been very enlightening, and I am learning lots. So I am going to continue, because even if I only achieve 40%, 40%of something is better than 40% of nothing.
