Sometimes I feel like I've got so much on my plate (that I put there) that I'll never finish anything. ACK! And that's when I sit down, eat some chocolate, and take it one thing at a time. I find that organizing things on my desk helps me organize my thoughts and gives me the feeling that I have some control over my self-imposed-chaos.
I take time to go through my orders, order castings and gemstones as needed, then hang them on a magnetic board on the wall behind my desk. Done.
Then I go through my expense receipts, bills, and assorted crap that has somehow landed on my desk (thank you, sweet husband). Then I do the old FTP. File. Toss. Pile. If I've dealt with it: File. If I haven't looked at it/don't need it: Toss. If I don't know what to do with it yet: Pile. I like to work in piles and I admit it's one slippery slope toward being on Hoarders for me.
I apologize to whomever that pile belongs to, but thought the cat butt sticking out was hilarious. Schaudenfraude at it's best.
So that said, I am going to continue my FTPing in the hopes that it will give me some energy to continue to plow through the piles and get on with my work. That said, I just posted a fantastic new ring in my Etsy shop. Whew.
