I love office supplies. I could spend hours and hours in a Staples or an Office Max. Now that I work for an Office Supply Wholesale/Distribution company I have access to even more.
I have a lot of pens and pads of paper and I am beginning to wonder if having so many choices is hindering my productivity.
“What color pen should I use today? I need to use blue for To-DOs, red to write the priority and Green to take notes. I need this pad of paper for this project, this one for general notes, and another to have just in case”
I get everything planned out, my Lists are ready to go and then somebody stops over asks something and I Jot it Down. Where you ask? On my beautiful to do list and now “It’s Ruined”. I re-write my lists every couple of days to make sure I haven’t missed anything. The more I am writing the more I am realizing I am a bit crazy and I could be spending a lot more time doing other things.
There’s more than just this. I know scary right?
So for my first April Challenge. For 1 week I am going to only use 1 Pen and 1 Pad of Paper (a notebook) and see how much more I get done. It’s going to be a busy week so it might be kind of hard to measure but It should be interesting. It’s all about simplification
I am going to try this at home too. I have my one book where I keep most of my life and plan so hopefully I can stick to using just that. It’s small so I may have to use some sticky notes or put some backup paper in the pockets 😀
Here’s to a happy April full of motivation and simplification. Be sure to go and check out my other Blog. Baby Hips and see what I have going on over there. 🙂
Happy Friday everybody!!!
