Daily Brief (Jan. 16, 2020)

Yesterday

My work to clean the office was very productive and ended up take much of my available time.  With family visiting (and using the office) I was not able to finish everything I wanted to.  The task expanded quite a bit, as I got into it.  I decided to remove my sit-stand desktop because I don’t spend as much time at the computer as I once did, and I have never really liked how much room it takes up.  There was always a lot of dust and the textured surface is really hard to keep clean.  I think that if I ever try a sit-stand desk, I will go with an adjustable-height desk rather than a separate unit.

I did enjoy my time with family.  One of the reasons I live in Oregon is to be close to them.  Sometimes I think about moving but, honestly, I don’t know where I would go.  I doubt many people get to the end of their life and say, “I wish I’d spent less time with family and worked more!”

Today

Today, I’m going to spend quite a bit more time cleaning up the office and going through the stuff that seams to accumulate with our modern lives.  It feels so nice to sit at a clean and organized desk, devoid of clutter.  That said, I feel surrounded by detritus and now I feel an urge to attack it all!

I believe that preparation is key to success and taking time now to declutter my world is going to make the next few years a lot easier.  I am going to be busier than I have at any other point in my life.  I’m going to have to be able to adapt quickly and the less stuff around me, the better.  I also need to figure out where everything that remains is going to go.

This is going to take several weeks to complete.  A couple hours per day and I should be able to get a hand on it!
