On the beach my eye searches for simplicity. The lone shell among thousands. A footprint amid a stampede. It helps me focus.
My aim was to do the same this week. With an unrelenting schedule of catch up at home for the next few days, the only way out was to create a list of priorities. It soon became a pleasure in itself to do so. With time quarantined for each task, I have de-cluttered the work schedule and worked through steadily.
Emails are answered within a time frame. Reports are being completed by priority. Phone calls are being fielded within a set time. Bills are being paid during the time allocated to them. It is an effective way to work. It is less stressful as well.
I would regard working hard as one of my strengths. If it needs doing, I’ll do it. Finding a rhythm, as old as the sea, has not been easy. But, I’m getting there …
May your week be productive and joyful.
May you too seek simplicity, and, importantly …. find it.
