Desk Report

This week, I finally start eating my frog! I still have problem doing it first thing what I get the time. But 4 out of the 9 days since I last report, I work on clearing a bit of the clutter on my desk, can I say it is an improvement?

Here are my pictures:

Introducing Clutter and Debt Series

Perhaps, money speaks to me louder. Debt just seem to be more difficult to swallow than clutter. But somehow, when I first exposed to Dave Ramsey's Real Debt Help website, the word clutter just popped into my head every time he said debt. I started to realize how serious my clutter problem is.

Time to Report

It has been a week since I last posted about my plan. During this week, I have been in and out the doctor's office, even paying a visit to the urgent care on Saturday! There was nothing serious, in fact, it may seem even hilarious: just my fingers having some kind of eczema that had gotten infected. They do look too horrible to be seen in pictures though.

Eat My Elephant One Bite At a Time by Eating My Frog First

[Perhaps, I should change my blog title to "Always Later Than I Said!" I am sorry that I haven't been able to keep up with my word. This is another area that I need to work on. I hope this is also a part of me that will be transformed through my blogging journey...]

With the realization that it is better to do something than nothing, I jumped in and get started with clearing up my once again messy desk. At the end of the day, it did not get much better. It is not even a tiny little bit noticeable. But I am glad that I did something about it. I guess this is the idea behind "Eating your frog".

To me, the clutter on my desk is my frog.

In Remembrance of September 11

Ten years ago today, so many lives were lost that we were consumed with sadness. Then we were lifted up by those who sacrificed themselves to save others. In a very intense period of time, we experienced the darkest and brightest side of human being. At that very moment, we had a glimpse into the end of days... as well as the selflessness and unity that we human beings are capable of. It was hatred that brought September 11 to our nation. It was selflessness that brought our nation together. Perhaps, if we all have such kind of selflessness towards everyone, we will have world peace...

May God remember those who sacrificed on September 11. May God heal those who still suffers medically or emotionally from it. And may God heal everyone who are suffering...

Planning to Plan

Last post was a lot of fun to write. It truly represents myself: I have read books, blogs, articles on getting organized, increasing productivity or other areas of self-help. But I often stopped before I took action. As I was trying to show last time, I stopped because I didn't know what to do. I did not know what to do, partly because the mess has been so widely built up, there are everywhere and overwhelming. But it is also because there are so many theories and ideas that I have read, my mind is as cluttered as my desk.
