Okay, I have given up on writing one large post about the goals I have set for myself. Instead, I think I will just write here and there about what I am striving towards. That way, not only will I actually write but I will have more posts!
I have organization goals for the year. I have many areas that I can improve with being organized. (And, as I write this my 2 youngest boys are racing back and forth across the room and I can hardly organize my thoughts!) I think I will just mention one small organization goal for now (since, "Momma" "Maaaamma" is making it impossible to do more. I am determined to accomplish this little post).
Email Organization Goal: Do not keep more than one page of emails (approximately 20 emails) in my Inbox.
For some people, this isn't a significant goal. For me, it is keeping me on my toes. Sometime right after the holidays, I cleaned out my inbox. I had almost 300 emails in it!!! It is no wonder I never got back to people. My inbox was littered with advertisements, forwarded humorous emails, emails I thought I might want to refer back to and emails with picture attachments that I wanted to keep. It was very challenging and freeing to clear the emails out. By keeping the inbox uncluttered, I am actually starting to do a better job at responding to emails. It is also just one step in the decluttering process that I am taking on in other places in my home. Note: If you are waiting for a response from me to an email you sent, please resend your email. (Thanks so much for understanding.)
