Today is Monday. It happens to be a recognized holiday, as well, but it doesn’t seem to make a difference to my internal clock. It’s Monday, so it must be Staff Meeting day.
My staff is comprised of me. One. Me. Doesn’t matter; it’s still a Staff Meeting, because I am holding a meeting to plan my week, and I need my staff (me) to get on board with the agenda.
This week’s focus is Order. It was also last week’s focus. And the week before that. Which means that Order has been on my mind for a good while.
In this morning’s staff meeting, a plan for Order started to crystallize using My Everything Book.
It occurs to me that My Everything Book is the “in box” of my thoughts. And it came to mind that my in box is getting kind of full.
Of course, this is an analogy, but my mind has felt like it was adopting the look of My Everything Book, a defined-by-me comparison to the kitchen junk drawer. A case of the source emulating the symbol, rather than the other way ’round.
So, as part of my agenda this week, I’m going to start sorting out my in box. Review some of those thoughts, ideas and impressions to see if they can be moved somewhere else or discarded. I’m absolutely certain that the bulk of them can be “moved somewhere else” because I am not casual about what I write in My EB.
I have some preliminary “file folders;” Now, Later, Spirit, material, Do something, Give something up, Clear, Unclear, Balanced, Solid foundation.
Of course, most of those only mean something to me, but if you are keeping Your EB, and you decide to adopt my practice of sorting it out some, you’ll need to decide what to sort the stuff into for yourself.
For most of us, the simplest place to start is – important or not important? Now or later? To do or decisively NOT to do? That kind of thing.
I’ll let you know how things are going. Let me know if you decide to join me, and then let me know how things are going for YOU!
