Mental Defrag

Last week on Wednesday I spent almost the whole day sorting through the paperwork files in my desk and re-organising my email system. It was one of those tasks that you start almost absent-mindedly - and then before you realise it your desk has exploded out onto the floor, and there's no option but to keep going and clear up!

My pending emails are now colour-coded using the flag system. I threw out as much as I could. I culled. I was ruthless. And then I went home and did it all over again. But I have to say I felt SO much better for it and I even slept much better. How strange is that?
