Well, I'm a firm believer in goals. But obviously, I'm not a firm believer in meeting them! I'm changing my September goals to October goals, and thinking maybe I'll get something done? It seems that my desk and credenza are a constant work-in-progress, since I use them all the time, so that goal will change. I need to add my desk to my daily hot-spot control. It really is easier to pick up a few things and put them away than it is to wait and have to plow through a big pile on the desk.
I keep having too many things come up each day: phone calls, letters, errands. These all seem to be a part of homeschooling and running a church office in our home. Most of the things I have to be on the phone for are related to one of those things, and I see no way around them. I can't put off a phone call to a church member until my phone day, for example. Most calls like that need to be made right away. So I'm thinking maybe I can have a certain time of day to make phone calls and such, instead of having a day of the week to make calls or write notes. I say that because most organizational helps say to set aside a day of the week to make calls, pay bills, run errands, etc. But I guess a homeschooling pastor's family needs to be a little more flexible than that! :) Each home and family are different, aren't they? That's why we have to adapt routines to reflect our own families.
Last night I pulled out my cardmaking supplies. I wanted to make some Thanksgiving cards to give to our church members on Sunday. But my supplies are such a mess that I don't even know what I have in there. Sigh. Another thing to organize!
