As we welcome 2017, I look at my own desk and my own backlog of projects with a certain amount of excitement and also a bit of guilt that some of my projects are lagging. New Year’s resolutions are full of promise, yet at the same time, we need to be honest with ourselves and realize that there is no magic wand that we can wave over our personal business and paperwork projects.
To paraphrase the quote that is attributed to Albert Einstein, “The definition of insanity is to keep doing the same things and expect different results.” It seems to be human nature to devote time to things we enjoy, and procrastinate on things we enjoy less. We are all “too busy” to get organized, or so we tell ourselves!
In the spirit of the New Year, I am starting this blog to present some tips and tricks I’ve learned and relied on through the years on managing projects and paperwork.
