The Perspective wishes everyone a Happy New
This year we resolve to keep a messy desk.
The purpose is to create more productivity.
Okay good people, I know you expect me to list
a sensible list of resolutions that I will honestly
try to accomplish during 2017. I haven’t done
so well in the past, so let me just try one and we’
ll see if I can live up to that one. Okay?
I resolve to keep a messy desk!
You heard me. I promise not to make a point to clean my desk ever again. I resolve not to beat
myself up for having a messy desk. Not that I plan to become a total slob. It’s just that I
accomplish more with a messy desk. Accomplish more? How can that be? Simple. I must work
harder in the smaller space. I must stay on top of stuff so it doesn’t get shoved to the bottom of
one of the many piles. I must know exactly where everything is so I can access it readily when
the hubby asks for it. To be able to manage that feat requires diligence and concentration. I find
that as I age this feat has become a two-fold blessing. I also get practice jogging my memory cells
to help ward off Alzheimer’s disease. From everything I have read about the disease memory
exercises and puzzles are good in assisting in warding off this tragedy.
I know that I should resolve to lose more weight in 2017. And I am really going try my hardest to
lose a substantial amount. But I haven’t reached that goal yet in the many years I have tried. But
I do hope it starts melting like butter. But I will not make a resolution to do it.
As I said, I am going to put my efforts where they are most attainable: in my brain, in the mental
exercise it takes to keep track of my desk!
One thing for sure you can say about me; I may have a lumpy bag-of-potatoes body. But my
brain cells are a 6-pack in the physical fitness world!
