2. Time to get organized

I don’t get tired of looking at these snow-covered mountains. Pictures to not capture the full beauty of it.

It’s my last day before going back to work. I have not been in the office since early December. I’m hoping they’ll let us work remotely full time again due to the rise in COVID-19 cases, but only a few days in the office is not too bad. I will need to put my organizational and productivity skills to the test in order to hit the ground running.

On that note, my goal for this year is to really organize all areas of my life so that I don’t waste any second and every second is lived with intention. I tend to shy away from “resolutions” because I feel that they’re doomed from the very beginning. Or maybe I and many others are interpret the idea of a resolution in the wrong way. You’re supposed to commit to something to an entire year, start strong from the very beginning, and you can’t mess it up. A sort of 365 project? With that in mind, my resolution is a goal. A finish line. A destination. I’m defining the end and figuring out tweaking the means as I go along.

To be a well-organized individual by the end of 2022. It sounds vague when I put it that way, but I intend on following the steps and tasks of the book called, One Year to an Organized Life. Each week you’re tasked with something new. In my reading for this week, I came across three quotes I really liked.

  • There is a place for everything, and everything should be in its place.
  • How you do anything is how you do everything. – Zen proverb
  • A dream is the starting point. It won’t take you to where you want to go. A plan of action takes you to fulfillment.

With all of this in mind, I planned out most of my week and even prepped everything I am going to need in the morning! I don’t think I’ve ever done that!
