Almost every day I am reading posts about how to better organize my office, files, desk….life. There are great suggestions out there but I never can secure at least one to my benefit.
So how does one organize chaos? When I first started my job as Hospital Manager I was completely overwhelmed. The desk and chair was not ergonomically correct for me, the files were not appropriately in order that even remotely made any sense, and the accounts receivable were…and still are a mess.
The more I dig, the more I find.
However, as overwhelmed I have been with swimming in this chaos, I have seen the shore. It may not be exactly where I was expecting to go, but it is progress.
At least I have a new chair. I do have a new desk but it is still boxed up because the office is being remodeled. Yes, throw a remodel into the mix!
I feel like I’m spinning right now, and 15 minutes of success in a ten hour day does not feel like progress.
So I continue to swim, coming up for air occasionally, while flailing my arms through these murky waters. I will get there.
In the meantime, I keep researching for best organization practices. If anyone can provide insight, I will be ever so grateful.
If I could just look at my work world like I do my art world, I am sure I’d be far more organized and be able to complete the chaos in a moments time.
In the meantime, I will just continue and continue and continue…
To be continued…
