Did Sherri’s list of Time Management tips help you all? I must say, once you tackle one of them, it gives you motivation to give all the others a try, too. Or at least it does me!
I have all my lists updated and in order in my planner, one in my computer, and two on my walls where I can see them every day. And I put up a chalkboard surface on the door of my new longarm room. This is where I will keep my weekly schedule posted — large and in plain view. (I’ll also use it to remember when I last changed my needle, and when it’s time for an oiling.) I’m really anxious to get to use my new room!
Meanwhile, I’m still working on mucking out my sewing room that I let get into such a huge mess in such a short time. I worked a little bit toward #8 on Sherri’s list, which is “Keep Surfaces Clean”. But as you can see, I have a long way to go. So even tho it’s a repeat of a task we’ve done several times before, I’m making it our task again this week, since I need it so badly:
For me, my main work surface is my cutting table, which I always let pile up to massive heights. I’ve struggled all year with it, and it has yet to be completely clear even once. I’m making that my goal this week.
The thing is, I don’t want to just clear the surface for the sake of clearing it and being able to take a nice picture to show you all — I want to actually find homes for the things that are there and actually deal with the messes as I clean it off, so in reality, it may take me more than a week.
So my intent right now is to show you this horrific starting picture:
And post an update picture once a week until I have it the way I want it. That will hold me accountable for actually working on it a bit harder than I have in the past, right?
Can you believe I can even create ANYthing in that mess? I can’t. It’s awful. It looks like I’ve been burglarized! I will feel so much better when I get it cleared off. Here I go!
How about you?
You don’t ever let your main work surface get in that kind of a mess, do you? I’m pretty sure it’s just me.
So hopefully your task this week isn’t as daunting as mine, but I’d still love to hear all about it.
