I looked around my office this morning and realized that I am probably the least organized person working in my field. My desk, really my entire office, is a mass of piles and boxes, and stacks and books, etc, etc. I am beginning to chip away at the disorganization, and it actually feels really good. But, I feel as though this task may be way over my head in terms of getting it right.
So, I have a plan: each day I will endeavor to work on streamlining one area of my job. I have given myself a month to get things so organized that I can find anything on the first try, and nothing gets lost in the mass of piles on my desk, which hopefully won't exist.
I am declaring this my goal. I will get organized, or die trying. I have to get organized, I just looked over the syllabi for my two classes this semester, and I will be working very hard to keep up in both classes. Unless I want a stress induced stay in the rubber room, I must get things in ship-shape order as quickly as possible.
As I have always told my children, how to do complete the largest task in your life? One step at a time.
Step one: admitting I have a problem and am powerless to overcome it without divine intervention.
I know that God is watching over me, and will guide my work. I can be at peace, and get through this without going to pieces, because God is with me.
So, I only have one final statement to make before I begin the monumental task of organizing my life's work. . . HELP!
Anybody? Can you hear me?
I bet if I asked for volunteers to organize my chocolate collection there would be a stampede toward my door.
