I hope that the New Year is treating you well so far. As for myself, I spent a great holiday with my family, only to be taken down by a cold the first day back to work. Ironic - yes.
And so the first post of the year which should be full of fresh ideas and tidbits is going to be short and sweet...I'm too wiped out to look up anything new and exciting for you.
If you didn't do any of the following at year end, what better time then year's beginning to complete them:
Back up your files. Back up, back up, back up ! And put a reminder in your outlook or day planner to do it every week (that way you'll at least do it every two weeks !)
Clean out your email clutter, learn how to creat folders in outlook and move stuff around. Delete your deleted items. Clean out your sent items.
Go through last year's planner and find projects that are not finished. Move important dates into your new planner - such as my birthday July 15
Organize your sticky notes...and stop using sticky notes, it's not environmentally friendly, create a task list in outlook - much better.
Curl up and read those books you've been putting off. Winter days are perfect for that...this should not interfer with your casusal web browsing time that I recommended you do about 3 posts back :)
And so I leave you with this pearl of wisdom:
A smile is a curve that sets everything straight - Phyllis Diller
