Ok, I’ll come clean. I don’t love paperwork. I don’t love filing, sorting or hold music. And I am tremendously bad about jotting important things down on tiny post-it notes which will later end up buried on my desk or at the bottom of my purse. I am one of those people who has literally been saved by technology – I can now jot down notes in my Palm Pilot and then do a device-wide “search” and find whatever I’m looking for!
With the new year and increased activity in the church, I’ve spent the past few days doing a lot of paperwork, and am nearing the end of the original mountain. Quite a bit had been accomplished - tax forms have been ordered, the church website is well underway and the kids’ immunization forms have been given to all the right people. Not to mention the fact that I can see my desk again.
It has not been the most fun I’ve ever had (shocking, I realize!) but I have to admit that a lot of things in my life are way more accessible and easier to work with than they were five days ago. I even appear to be smiling more at my computer! Maybe organization does have a greater spiritual purpose….
