My supervisor has been super nice and really patient with me. She explains things in detail and is just an amazing person overall. There is once work item that I have had difficulty with. Every time I need to process that work item, I get confused.
I went into work the other day and just got more and more frustrated with myself. I came home sad and was unable to focus on anything. I was just plain upset at myself.
I am not sure why, I glanced at my work bag. It was stuffed full with papers and completely disorganized. My bag was bigger and more stuffed than Santa’s bag of joy. I felt my brain was like my work bag – overstuffed and disorganized.
One look at it and I knew I had to clear my mind. So, I started clearing out my bag. I pulled out all the papers and items and just left them neatly in a pile. My work bag now had just the essentials – all neatly compartmentalized and it felt great. The bag was breathing again.
I went back to work the next day with a better attitude and a spring in my step. I tackled everything slowly and steadily and made good progress. I did feel better organized and light headed (in a good way).
Thanks Marie Kondo. Cleaning the clutter does help.
