Office Work

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.

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).

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.

I will be telling you if my plan is successful.

Have a beautiful paper-less day!
