Move It Over Here, Not Over There
During the past week I’ve
made changes to my office, computer and vehicle that should make working easier
and more productive.
The process started with
two realizations: I have some important goals I need to reach in the next few
months. I was not being as productive as I needed to be to reach those goals.
Then, the answers to two
questions pointed out what I needed to do: What do I need to be productive? How
can I make sure that what I need is as close as possible to me at the times
when I need it?
The answers caused me
to rearrange my workspace, moving books, digital sources and materials closer
to where I dock my laptop to work; consolidate or delete a lot of the files on
my computer because I was seeing a TON of unnecessary files whenever I looked a
the screen; and keep some work supplies in my vehicle so it’s easier to take a
note or listen to an instructional book on cd.
So often, we make it harder
to succeed than it has to be.
