Oh... and some fun stuff!
I am going crazy! Agghhh.
Because my life is so disorderly!!!!
Let me explain.
My husband and I choose to work out of our home (there is another topic for another blog post!).
Anyhow, we do and we love it.
Moving on with the story.
Our office is getting decorated, with painting, reflooring the subfloor, baseboards, carpet, accessories, and so on.
Now my husband is the engineer and perfectionist type and wants to do it himself.
We have had too many jobs done by 'professionals' that haven't turned out so good.
So, in his mind, if you want the job done well, do it yourself.
(p.s. I do help with the painting).
Because it’s a (part-time) DIY job, progress is a little slower than normal.
The whole project causes complete disorder as boxes of office stuff are everywhere,
in every room along with bookshelves, desks, and printers down to pens, pencils and pins.
Meanwhile we work our business from the kitchen table, thus we eat our meals at the kitchen counter. We search for files clambering over boxes and who knows where the stapler is!
“Not ideal, but at least it's only temporary,” I mutter to myself on a daily basis.
I hate disorder.
I run on lists, excel spreadsheets, clocks and more lists (kind of odd as I am definitely the creative type).
If you stand still long enough, I will get my labeler out and stick a category label on you.
Order is good.
To run an efficient business, my motto is, you should know where something is in 15 seconds or less and place your hand on it.
People waste too much time searching for things.
It wastes time that you could be spending actually marketing, generating sales or creating.
So I challenge you, take some time this week to put order into your office area.
Know where the postage, envelopes, certain files and paper clips are.
Invest in drawers and storage equipment.
Create idea/progress boards for clients, prospects and marketing ideas.
They say (whoever they are) that a 'tidy office is a tidy mind'.
I am experiencing the reality of this statement.
Because I am going crazy!
Now then...Where is that stapler?!
