Did you know that the first week in October is Get Organized Week? It is. Because I hate to miss a special week, I prepared my workspace to reflect my desire to participate.
So, this morning I cleaned off my desk. Aren’t you proud of me? My desk top is nearly empty except for a coffee cup (full of a wonder dark roast, of course) and the document I’m editing. That’s all I need. Oh, and a pen.
I cleaned off the my worktable. It’s usually stacked with papers and next steps for specific projects. That is, papers are stacked by project. I know where everything is. My worktable now has only my thesaurus, my year-at-a-glance calendar and my lamp.
So where the heck did all the desk detritus go? Where do you think?
I’ve worked at home, both when I was in corporate America and now that I am a full-time writer, for over a decade. I know how to organize my space. I know I don’t need everything printed out. I know if I keep my space uncluttered, my mind will be able to focus and my stress level will be reduced.
So, I ask again: where did all the normal desk detritus go? Why, on the floor, of course. Doesn’t everyone have an “in-floor?”
I hope you all have better luck with your participation in Get Organized Week than I did. Have no fear: I know where every scrap of paper is and what’s on it. Maybe my brain needs to be organized and decluttered. Any suggestions???
