Year Two: Day One of the New Goals

Maintenance seems to be on track this morning, so it is definitely time to start the real work on procrastination…no more “tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow” s!! emoticon

First, I must share a photo of my little “study” (taken in January, 2013)

You wouldn’t tell anyone what a packrat hoarder I am, right?!

Now, to be clear, here are a few more quick pix to show that our common rooms do not mirror my “private” mess.

In addition, in all fairness, I have made a bit of progress since this challenge began 119 days ago.

See… the desk is more or less orderly. Just don’t look at what is gathered to the right, nor stacked to the left of the main focus!

So today’s project is to begin on the right. I’m an organized person LOL ,so the bottom of the pile will be carefully laid out…a good level foundation! My modus operandi is to set what is in my hands at the moment on top of the nearest “logical” flat surface, until I have time to put it in order and/or discard what is extraneous (usually very little of either is accomplished as you can now attest!)

1. Take down the accumulations. No, do not place them on the desk chairs, or on top of the printer. (I think I know enough not to put them on my laptop!)
2. Stop…go back and do #1. Now!....

So it is off to the big city, but I’ve got a good beginning. Please don’t look at that stack on the floor! emoticon emoticon

    I have noticed that the view of the room is getting smaller and smaller with each progression.
Hmmm........... I wonder why that is
maybe as you go thru each stack the room shrinks?

    Wow, you have done well - your desk is looking great! Lovely to see photos of the rest of your house too - it looks lovely and clean and cosy. My desk needs some serious sorting out too and I need to go through all the children's cupboards and sort out which clothes still fit them and which can be passed down. I too find myself procrastinating when it comes to these jobs!
Great job, you are nearly there!

    We all have a room like that in our home, whether or not we admit it. Mine in my bedroom. We recently moved from a 4 bedroom split floor plan home to a 3 bedroom home, talk about downsizing. It just seems like everything that can not find a home ends up in my room. Oh well at least I can close the door when I have company. emoticon on the progres on the desk.
