31 Days of Finishing – Day 3O: Tackle Paper Piles

Day 30 - What do your piles of paper look like? Mine are NOT organized like the one in this photo. And today I tackled the messy mounds at my home.

Day 30 – What do your piles of paper look like? Mine are NOT organized like the ones in this photo. But today I tackled the messy mounds at my home.

Paper! Stacks of paper everywhere. Where do all these piles of paper come from? Do you deal with this too?

Ugh! It is an unending battle. These piles certainly detract from the organized look. And looking at them reminds me of something I have to do. Double ugh!!

Today, I took my 31 minutes to sort.

Moral of the story? 31 minutes is more than enough time to sort these piles of mess into something doable. I put some to-do actions on one of the lists on my phone. I LIKE the look of tidy. And I feel energized.

Sometimes I use the resulting energy (of finishing something that’s been on the list for a long time) for practical good. Today I will use it for emotional good.

I think I will use this energy to read. Yep! No more tedious or messy mounds to master for today.

During this month of October I am joining LOTS of bloggers hosted by The Nester who will be writing every day about a topic. My topic is about finishing. I will spend 31 minutes each day on a to-do item (from the secondary list).

I will write about it and share any productivity tips I find helpful to FINISHING things.

Go here for the Landing Page with all the posts (which go live as they are written). The list is towards the bottom of the page.

Your Turn . . .

  • Do you have messy mounds or are you too tidy for that?
  • What is the secret to NOT having these take over the flat surfaces in the home?
  • What is the most surprising thing you’ve found in one of your piles?
  • What did you do with your 31 minutes of finishing today?
