Not quite "executive," but I'm not quite executive either.
Yes, 2020. I've not been my most organized self for the last little while. It may have been taking it too easy breezy in August and adding September 11 took it to a higher level of disorganization. I'm usually quite organized and keep an orderly calendar and have my to-do lists updated every day. I'm not quite as orderly as when I was working, but I thought I was keeping up.
For the last little while I've been saying yes to doing things and then I've neglected to write them down. What a mess! I had theater tickets and a commitment to be out of town with a group of friends for the weekend ahead. As my mother always said, "You can't dance at two weddings," and I was trying my hardest to do just that. That debacle got solved and I decided to take action.
I went through my calendar for 2019 and noted every event I had scheduled. I made a list of items that need to be done -- a flight to schedule and fund raising notes to send out. In a whirl of resolution I went to the local dollar store this afternoon and bought an organizer for 2020. Yes, it says "executive" on the label, but it has a plastic cover and it cost all of $1.29. I immediately felt better and on the road back to organization. My next activity will be to enter all the commitments I've made for 2020 and be ready to start the year off in as orderly a fashion as possible.
I may be the first person to post about their perfect word for 2020, but I don't mind being a trailblazer. I've had new year thoughts in mind for the last month as the Jewish New Year of 5780 begins on September 29. I'm grateful to have two opportunities to review and reflect. I may have chosen a different perfect word by January, 2020, but Organization will definitely be my perfect word for 5780.
I've got some excitement coming up tomorrow afternoon and Thursday. Facebook and Instagram friends will get sneak peeks in the afternoon, but I promise to do a quick post tomorrow night with the high points of the day, and they look very exciting.
As ever, thanks for visiting and wishes for a wonderful Wednesday.
