I woke up this morning - groggy, and the feeling hasn't really shifted. I have wanted to curl up with a book, and hide from the world, but that really isn't an option today. It is somedays, but not today. Instead, I have done something purposeful. Cleared a space in my study for a new desk, which I am hoping to go to get tomorrow. Sometimes just clearing something, throwing some stuff out, building a great big fire in the grate with unneeded or dealt with paper, feels soooooooooooo good!
I have a pile of paperwork to get through, things to file, bits to organise, mood boards to assemble, on location out of office emails to answer, and all the related stuff to do from those, and the list really does go on and on and on. For the past few weeks, I have been really busy with work, orders and shoots and all this stuff, has been pushed to the side, well it can't be any longer. I need to make some order in the chaos, and just get on with all the things, that are essential, like the paperwork but that I can find fifty billion things I would rather be doing. However, the dull stuff is really important, and it needs to be dealt with, or I will continue running in concentric circles, with no end in sight.
Isn't it funny how the stuff we don't really like doing, is actually pretty central to our lives, it makes them run smoother, and it gives us time to do the things we really enjoy. I have made the decision this year, not to put things off, and to try to be more organised - it definitely doesn't come naturally to me - because too much chaos, just leads to stress, that I really could deal without.
What are you top tips on dealing with the paperwork in order to free yourself up for other things?
Gotta go, as there are a pile of letters over there, with my name on - letter opener in hand, I move forward.
That's it for today…
