Paperwork, accounting, and various other office work is a big part of doing business.
My career in accounting and finance, for nearly 25 years, left me without a desire to sit at a desk and push papers and numbers.
Where I want to be is in the soap shop, in the barn, studying, reading a book, or enjoying quiet family or friend time.
The paperwork mounts.
It will not be long before I hire someone to help me do some of my hat wearing.
Until then, the plan is to begin scheduling in time to successfully move the papers from the in-basket, to the out-basket, and into the filing cabinet (or shredder).
Making myself accountable is another thing. This is where having no boss (except myself) requires a lot of seat-belting myself to the office chair.
Do you have a particular task, like paperwork, that you particularly dread? A task you are good at, way too good at, yet, you procrastinate?
I am aware, procrastination gets people nowhere. It amounts to more work to do, and clutter.
My plan, as of today, is to begin scheduling in paperwork time. I will not read email during my paperwork hour. I will not shop for supplies. I will not plan the next bar of soap. During my scheduled time I will be wiping out paperwork.
To make myself accountable, I will report in here.
I will be telling you if my plan is successful.
Have a beautiful paper-less day!
By the way, the picture isn’t too shabby is it? I decided to operate the camera today without reading the manual. I love to learn and then go back and read. I admit to it!
