21 Day Challenge: Day 8

As I move through my mega-project of organizing my office, I’m starting to recognize some negative thoughts that have kept this room a paper-filled mess:

  1. I’ll deal with this later. (Right now I’m dealing with my office, and this is the next thing on my list. It is “later.”)
  2. I’m getting overwhelmed easily.  I’ll find a paper and think, “I don’t know what to do with this.”  And I immediately see another one, not related, and also don’t have a home for that paper.  I’m starting to make homes for things; I may end up with multiple files but I aim to go through my files once the room is a bit more orderly.

Today I read through Day 8: Put Your Goals on Paper.  Crystal says to write your current goal on a piece of paper, put it somewhere prominent so you will see it often.  I wrote down on a large post-it, “my office is clean, tidy and organized. Everything in it has a home.”  I will get this mega-project done, little by little!  I will also write down my goal, that the kitchen is tidy before bed every night.

My mega-project “steps” have not been reviewed; I am too focused right now on picking up everything from the desks and floor.  I will work on its segments after I finish this!

My tasks for tomorrow:

  • attack the folder of paper that is randomly filed in my office.
  • clean up the kitchen before bed.
  • review my post-it notes reminding me of my goals.
  • read chapter 9 of 21 Days to a More Disciplined Life.
